New Module: Reproducibility of Research Results


Announcing new Reproducibility of Research Results module as part of the Center for Bioethics and Research online course on Responsible Conduct of Research

Center for Bioethics and Research in partnership with Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) is pleased to announce a new module “Reproducibility of Research Results”.

In a series of Notices in 2017, the NIH informed the extramural research community of each of four focus areas of the rigor and transparency policy for research grant and career development award applications:

  1. Scientific Premise in NIH Grant Applications, Scientific Rigor in NIH Grant
  2. Applications, Consideration of Relevant Biological Variables in NIH Grant Applications, and
  3. Authentication of Key Biological and/or Chemical Resources in NIH Grant Applications

Reproducibility of Research Results is a module designed to complement our topical offerings in the Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) Basic Course. So that extramural researchers can be aware of the new requirements on rigor and reproducibility of research results and be compliant. Inability to reproduce findings from prior research, whether it is one’s own study or a study conducted by others, is a growing issue of concern for research communities. The new “Reproducibility of Research Results” module discusses factors that contribute to the lack of reproducibility and the resulting problems that can emerge, the module also describes the stakeholders affected by reproducibility problems, a collection of reproducibility initiatives, and strategies that can mitigate or prevent irreproducibility.

To take advantage of this and other course offerings including Informed Consent, Good Clinical Practice, Essentials of Research Administration, Biosafety and Conflict of Interest, start with the links below;
