The topics of scientific rigor and data reproducibility have been increasingly covered in the scientific and mainstream media, and are being addressed by publishers, professional organizations, and funding agencies, including NIH. This webinar — the first in a series titled Promoting Awareness and Knowledge to Enhance Scientific Rigor in Neuroscience — will address topics of scientific rigor as they pertain to pre-clinical neuroscience research.
Webinar attendees will leave the session with:
- A better understanding of the issues surrounding scientific rigor and the lack of data reproducibility in basic neuroscience research
- Example best practices for designing pre-clinical experiments and planning for data collection
- An overview of the new grant sections required by the NIH to address issues of experimental rigor and data reproducibility
