If you are working with human subjects (IRB) or animals (IACUC) you need to complete CITI (Collaborative Institutional Training Institute) prior to submitting proposals. This training raises awareness about several issues you may need to consider during your research project.
CITI Training is a series of online modules, followed by brief quizzes after each section. You must receive a passing score (at least 80%) for each module quiz. You can always return to this "Select Curriculum" page at a later date and take additional courses. The web site for CITI Training is www.citiprogram.org.
