Last July we wrote about the issue of reproducibility of research findings. What’s been happening since then?
Intellects from across the country have been discussing initiatives and developing policies.
On April 15, you’ll have the rare opportunity of hearing directly from one of these scholars about NIH plans to enhance reproducibility.
Lawrence A. Tabak, D.D.S., Ph.D., will present “Reproducibility of Biomedical Research,” from 3 to 4 p.m. on Friday, April 15, in the Class of ’62 Auditorium (Medical Center, G-9425).
Dr. Tabak currently is principal deputy director of the National Institutes of Health. Many of us, however, will remember Dr. Tabak from his tenure at University of Rochester.
NIH recently formalized guidelines to help address the reproducibility crisis. You can see the newly revised grant application instructions here: www.nih.gov/research-training/rigor-reproducibility.
Dr. Tabak’s presentation is sponsored by the SMD’s Center for Professional Development.
