Advanced Training for Research Investigators, Project Directors, Project Staff and Students
The Office of Sponsored Programs, Technology Transfer Office and Legal Counsel held a required additional training session for all personnel involved in the design, conduct or reporting of sponsored research activities. Some new developments now require training and certifications that you need to learn about. Specifically for NIH funding recipients, attendance is mandatory to ensure that spending can continue past 8/24/12. This training was held in April 2012.
Three major topics were covered:
- Protecting university and inventor rights in intellectual property (Stanford v Roche) - Intellectual Property slides & IP handouts
- New Conflict of Interest regulations and MSU policy changes - COI Policy Revision & Gender Discrimination slides & COI handouts
- Title IX – Gender Discrimination and Sexual Misconduct
If you missed the training held in April 2012 you may do one of the following:
- Contact Carmen Fike to check out a DVD, or watch the video below. Following viewing, please send an email to Carmen to let her know you have completed the training.
- Take the CITI Program’s Conflict of Interest mini-course - https://www.citiprogram.org/. Note: When registering, be sure to affiliate yourself with MSU.
REMINDER: After taking the training, all research active employees must provide for their assignment of technologies. To execute this form, go to "My Info" on the MSU web page, enter the secure area, and after login, go to My Apps at the top right. The Intellectual Property Agreement is the third and final app listed.

__________Principal Investigator (PI) training
The next PI training session will be held in Fall 2013. Contact Carmen Fike if you are interested in attending or if you would like to view a DVD of a past training.
MSU’s research focus continues to grow in both dollar amounts and national reputation. The PI Training was designed and developed as a pro active approach to ensure all investigators have the information needed to conduct their research in compliance at both the federal and state level. MSU PI Training is mandatory (one-time only) for researchers and we encourage anyone working with sponsored funding to attend.
