Additional Training in the Responsible Conduct of Research
All individuals, whether funded or not, who wish to conduct research with humans, must also complete the CITI Human Subjects Protection course prior to initiating research with humans.
All individuals, whether funded or not, who wish to conduct research involving vertebrate animals, must complete the Laboratory Animal Training Association (LATA) base module, species specific module(s), and techniques module(s) prior to initiating research with vertebrate animals. Both of these RCR training areas are supplemented by live training opportunities.

In addition, individuals working with human blood or other potentially infectious materials must complete the UNLV Bloodborne Pathogens training. Individuals working with infectious materials or recombinant DNA must complete the UNLV Biosafety training. Finally, individuals working with biological toxins must complete the UNLV Toxin Safety training.
