Responsible Research 101 Training Course

Everything you need to know to conduct research responsibly…..

Registration is open for our online Responsible Research 101 training courses running November 2020-July 2021.

The course is aimed at laboratory based researchers at any stage in their career who are actively planning, supervising, conducting, analysing and disseminating animal, or in vitro research and want an overview, or refresher of current best practice.

Course participants will learn to:

  • identify what best practice means in the context of their own work;
  • recognise why best practice is important for the reproducibility, rigor and translational value of their research data;
  • plan their experiments with renewed confidence;
  • critically review their research methodology and identify opportunities to further improve their research conduct;
  • enhance their research impact and personal contribution to the research culture within the scientific communities they are a member of (local, national, international).
