ORI Introduction to RCR: Chapter 3. The Protection of Human Subjects
To help assure that researchers understand their responsibilities to research subjects, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) currently requires
…education on the protection of human research participants for all investigators submitting NIH applications for grants or proposals for contracts or receiving new or non-competing awards for research involving human subjects. (Link)
Many institutions, including NIH, provide this training through special Web-based programs that summarize essential information and in some cases require some evidence of mastery. A description of the education program and who was trained must be included in applications for grants and contracts before they will be considered.
