Welcome to campus

Visit Case Western Reserve University's uniquely urban campus, located in the heart of Cleveland's cultural hub, University Circle. Plan your trip:

CWRU trainees acquire the professional values and practices of biomedical research. Generally, these involve decisions about mentoring relationships, the use of animals or human subjects, data acquisition and management, collaborative research, responsible authorship, conflict of interest, peer review, research misconduct, and the scientist as a member of society.

Training in responsible conduct of research is comprehensive, and occurs throughout the CWRU experience. Trainees begin to familiarize themselves immediately with mentoring issues in discussions with the first year advisor, and from the Biomedical Graduate Student Organization.

There are numerous RCR experiences available on campus throughout the year. We offer the following two RCR programs:


IBMS 500 - Initial training in the responsible conduct of research (students only)


RCR+4 - Training beyond 4 years - students and post-docs
