The Office of Research hosts an annual orientation for new and junior research faculty to provide an introduction to our office staff and the services we provide, as well as an overview of applicable law and TCU policies and responsible conduct of research training.
Breakfast and Lunch provided.
On Demand Training
The American Association for Laboratory Animal Science (“AALAS”) offers a free training course that is designed primarily for staff performing research that involves the use of laboratory animals and for IACUC members, but veterinarians, senior husbandry staff and anyone interested in learning more about how animal research must be conducted will likely find the course materials useful as well.
Online RCR Training through CITI
The Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) offers online training in research integrity. TCU has an institutional subscription to CITI in order to provide this background training free of charge for all researchers working at TCU, whether graduate students, undergraduate students, postdoctoral researchers, or faculty.
If CITI is required or recommended for your research, use the above link to access the CITI website. On the home page, choose “Create an account.” Then select Texas Christian University as your Organization Affiliation, set up a username and password, and sign-up for courses. At Step 7, under Question 2, Responsible Conduct of Research, choose the training closest to your field (i.e. “Physical Science RCR” “Humanities RCR,” “Biomedical RCR,” etc.). You will recieve an e-mail promptly with your CITI i.d. number and login confirmation, and can begin completing your course(s) immediately.
