Event description

Description

Description:

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) have identified two themes underlying the ‘reproducibility crisis’ in bench work and the high rates of failed ‘bench-to-beside’ translation of preclinical research:1) a lack of training in research design; and 2) deficiencies in the reporting of research. To address these issues, new guidelines have been developed and are being implemented by funding agencies, universities, publishers and journals. Dr. Manoj Lalu will present on topics relating to research design, analysis, and reporting of key methodological details. Participants will gain a better understanding of the new guidelines for conducting preclinical research, including the following: 1.Preclinical reporting standards and how to implement them. 2. How to improve the validity of bench studies 3.Generating appropriate sample size calculations for experiments. 4.How to randomize and blind in experiments in a rigorous manner.
