Date Thu, Mar 11
Time 5: 30 PM - 7: 30 PM
Location Zoom

Kathryn Sandberg, PhD, Georgetown University will present "Rigor & Responsibility in the time of COVID" as a part of the Translational Biomedical Science (TBS) Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) Series.

Guest Speaker for Journal Club Portion: Adam Marcus co-founder, Retraction Watch and the Center for Scientific Integrity Managing Editor, Gastroenterology & Endoscopy News

Due: CITI training certificates in Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) and Good Clinical Practice Course (US FDA Focus)

Goal: To provide face-to-face training for predoctoral students, postdoctoral fellows and early career investigators in the responsible conduct of research in order to promote ethical, rigorous and reproducible science. The following in person series dovetails to required CITI modules and provides an opportunity for investigators to discuss all aspects of these topics with an expert in the field. This series also fulfills the requirements of multiple funding agencies.
