To provide training and education to graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in the Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) to foster a culture of research integrity ensuring The Scripps Research Institute’s (TSRI) commitment to maintaining the highest caliber of research and scholarship.


TSRI expects the highest ethical standards of professional conduct by its members in performing scholarly and scientific activities with honesty and integrity. The enterprise of scientific research relies upon the trust and confidence of both the scientific community and the public at large in the integrity of the scientific process.  To fulfill these obligations and duties, TSRI is dedicated to providing its graduate students, postdoctoral scholars and others participating in the research enterprise with the training that will enable them to carry out their research and professional activities in a manner that reflects the values of honesty, accuracy, objectivity, and efficiency that lie at the core of research integrity.  Training and education in the Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) is one of the many avenues TSRI administration, faculty, and staff utilize in training tomorrow’s scientists.
