Responsible Conduct of Research

National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) and National Science Foundation’s (NSF) regulations regarding instructions concerning Responsible Conduct of Research for grant funded personnel recently have changed. The Main Campus’ Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) Plan was created to accommodate NIH’s and NSF’s updates. This Plan will serve as the basis for authorizing signatures for NSF proposals and can be incorporated fully or partially into NIH proposals. This Plan will also be applicable to Law Center and SFS-Qatar faculty who are recipients of NIH and NSF grants.
