Cornell utilizes the training program delivered by CITI (Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative) to provide some online courses in research ethics for Cornell students, faculty and staff. Courses for IRB (Institutional Review Board for human participant research), COI (Financial Conflict of Interest for PHS-funded researchers), and RCR (Responsible Conduct of Research) are available from CITI. Cornell personnel can access the CITI website using their Cornell NetID and password.
