At Hackensack Meridian Health, we believe that the right training and education are crucial to the success of our research efforts. It is a priority for us to provide the relevant training and educational programming to enable investigators and research staff to navigate regulatory requirements and produce robust scientific research.
Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI): All investigators and research staff must complete online CITI training in order to initiate a study or join a study team.
More information on biosafety training can be found here.
More information on animal care and use training can be found here.
In addition, we offer the following training programs and educational opportunities:
