Investigator Series

The Division of Scholarly Integrity and Research Compliance’s Investigator Series provides researchers with a peer-to-peer forum to share ethical considerations that they make during the design, conduct and dissemination of their research. This style of learning opens the door to new perspectives and meaningful conversations in the pursuit of research excellence.  

Investigator Series webinars are typically 1-hour  and  are open to all Virginia Tech students, faculty, and staff. All Investigator Series presentations provide in-person Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training credit hours towards the National Institutes of Health (NIH) 8-hour in-person RCR training requirement.

Previous Investigator Series presentations can be found on the Investigator Series video page. NOTE: Viewing previously recorded Investigator Series presentations does not provide credit hours towards the NIH’s in-person RCR training requirement.
