Required Training

The “list of required courses for any research projects with restricted data” will depend on the research project and the materials being used. For example, if the restricted data relates to a controlled pathogen, the PI and lab staff may have to do the appropriate biological training. However, these training requirements would be covered through “other” avenues such as registration of the biological project with Environmental Health and Safety.
