Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR)

The Duke Faculty and Staff RCR Program, under the umbrella of the Duke Office for Scientific Integrity, strengthens our foundation in research integrity and ethics. All faculty and staff involved in research are required to participate in ongoing RCR courses. 

The ongoing RCR education requirement for faculty and staff is to complete one online, self-directed course (RCR 100) every three years and one collaborative (RCR 200) course every three years.
