Class Description: Currently, it is crucial for universities that use federal funds for research activities to provide training about the responsible conduct of research.  This class will provide information to increase your awareness about responsible conduct of research and research integrity.  We will identify resources for you on the UU campus, as well as from the National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, and federal Office of Research Integrity to promote research integrity and the responsible conduct of research that you will be able to carry into your career.
