The Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) has been modified in its entirety, to remove all references to the Grant Proposal Guide (GPG) and Award & Administration Guide (AAG). The document will now be referred to solely as the NSF PAPPG. The document will be sequentially numbered from Chapter I-XII and all references throughout have been modified to reflect this change. Part I of the document covers NSF’s proposal preparation and submission guidelines, and Part II covers NSF’s award, administration and monitoring guidelines.
RIT is affiliated with the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative, or CITI, a subscription service providing research ethics education to members of the research community. The CITI program offers courses in the responsible conduct of research including case studies and video segments. The content is tailored separately for engineers, biomedical investigators, physical sciences research, humanities and social and behavioral sciences research.
- What kinds of animal research can I do at RIT?
- All proposed research with vertebrate animals (all fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals – except human) requires RIT IACUC (Institute Animal Care and Use Committee) advance notification and approval. Email the IACUC chair Larry Buckley (firstname.lastname@example.org) for a proposal template that must be completed, submitted, and approved prior to any vertebrate animal research.
