Why should you be interested in attending this webinar?

Together, rigor and reproducibility become ethical issues when the unreliable results produced or reported cause harm, are a waste of limited research resources, and cannot be used with confidence by the research community. Recent publications have drawn attention to the prevalence in the number of experiments that cannot be reproduced. NIH is now requiring researchers submitting new applications to specifically address how they will ensure rigor and reproducibility.

What will be covered during the webinar?

Under the assumption that most people would demonstrate right actions if they only knew what to do and how to do them, Dr. Sodeke will explore with the audience the critical factors and how they should be considered to ensure rigor and reproducibility in scientific research.

Who should attend? Why?

Research touches EVERYONE!  Scientific progress relies on well-designed experiments conducted with rigor or strictness to get accurate results or findings. Results must be reproducible to ensure that they are reliable.   Researchers and research personnel interested in playing their part effectively and efficiently should attend.
