New Ethics Course at Neuroscience 2015 in Chicago

14 September, 2015 in Neuroscience News

A new, half-day short course, which focuses on the responsible conduct of research will be held on Friday, October 16, 1:00-5:30 PM at Neuroscience 2015 in Chicago, IL.

The course, “Optimizing Experimental Design for High-Quality Science,” meets NIH requirements and aims to differentiate itself from similar courses offered at many universities by being specific to neuroscience. This opportunity may also be attractive to the international community as these are concepts are commonly shared. Input from the global community within this dialogue would be a great asset to the overall course.  

The course was introduced in response to an NINDS calling to provide this type of content through the Society’s Neuroscience Scholars Program. Ultimately, it has been designed with consideration of NIH requirements, but with an eye toward differentiating the course from content offered at many universities by being neuroscience specific.  It is especially useful for trainees at smaller institutions, where these types of courses may not be readily available.

The inaugural short course will be held on Friday, October 16, 1:00-5:30 PM at Neuroscience 2015 in Chicago, IL. The course will cover lectures and guided discussion opportunities to educate attendees on best practices in experimental design, reproducibility, and data interpretation.
