Overview

The one-year Graduate Certificate Program in Research Management and Compliance (REMC) is designed to provide students with focused training on central issues related to an effective research enterprise. Principle investigators are busy with mentoring trainees, writing and reviewing grants and writing papers as well as tending to other issues that require the attention of people with their expertise. Being able to hire professional research assistants who are familiar with the composition and requirements of writing IRB and IACUUC applications (BSBT 6802 The Regulatory Environment of Life Science Innovation), basic components of tech transfer and innovation (BSBT 6801 Biomedical Entrepreneurship), responsible conduct of research (BSBT 6065) as well as professional project management (BSBT 6061), should be very helpful for their research enterprise. Knowledge in statistics for biomedical sciences (BSBT 6067) should be valuable for data analyses. Depending on the students’ prior training, they will have to enroll in either training in scientific writing or in R programming. These knowledge and skills should help certificate holders to obtain positions as professional research assistants inside and outside academia.
