Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) Training

The goal of Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training is for anyone involved in research to perform the most ethical research possible. Northwestern University has in place a number of policies that clearly demonstrate our commitment to research integrity. Collectively, these apply to all members of Northwestern’s research enterprise: students/trainees, staff and faculty.
