Faculty Training

Human Subjects

All UCSF key personnel conducting human research must complete human subject's protection training through an online program called the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI).  Review the FAQs about CITI Training for registration instructions and training details.  

CITI also offers training on Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR). 

UCSF's Committee on Human Research (CHR) offers training for human research proposal application and management. 

Animal Subjects

UCSF's Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) provides training in the care and use of animals for faculty and others involved in animal research. 

Conflict of Interest (COI)

UCSF researchers must comply with federal, state and University regulations and policies regarding financial conflicts of interest and are required to report their COI status via COI Smart (available via MyAccess).  See the COI Smart website for information on reporting procedures.

For access to COI Smart, please contact coiac@ucsf.edu


MyNCBI

MyNCBI is a tool for faculty to save their citations (including journal articles, books, meetings, patents and presentations) in My Bibliography in order to maintain compliance with NIH Public Access Policy.  

View the webinar to learn more about how to update your citations in MyNCBI.

For additional information on the NIH Public Access Policy, UCSF faculty and staff with a MyAccess login may watch the UCSF Library's July 2014 presentation.
