Individuals who are new to the animal research program at the Medical College of Wisconsin must obtain Certified status in order to be listed as approved study personnel on an Animal Use Application (AUA) prior to participating in any animal activities and/or obtaining access to the animal facility.

Researcher Profile For Compliance FCOI-R Training
Effective August 24, 2012, the Department of Health and Human Services revised its rule (42 CFR Part 50 Subpart F), requiring key personnel involved in Public Health Services (PHI) funded research to complete Financial Conflicts of Interest in Research (FCOI-R) training. In addition, MCW Institutional policy requires all persons identified as Principal Investigators and Key Personnel on funding proposal projects at MCW, regardless of funding origination, complete the same training requirements. A funding proposal will not progress if the training is not current. Your training record is registered in your eBridge Researcher Profile, and is viewable by you at any time.
Researcher Profile for Human Subject Research Training
Everyone involved in the design, conduct, or review of human research carried out by MCW faculty investigators must obtain Human Subject Research (HSR) training certification. Upon successful completion of the HSR course, that record is uploaded into a person's eBridge Researcher Profile. The training record is also displayed in the Workspace of all Human Research Projects on which the user is listed, either as Study Staff or PI.
