The Aging Center developed a Science Culture and Accountability Plan (SCAP) to lay out its vision and mechanisms to ensure that research can be conducted in an environment that encourages open and critical discussion, ongoing dialogue and communication between investigators, and accountability, self-motivation, and self-responsibility.

RCR training refers to a code of conduct that researchers practice on a daily basis. Based on an NIH and DHHS Office of Research Integrity initiative, all SOM faculty and staff engaged in the design, conduct or reporting of research are required to complete RCR training.
