Past Events

  • NINDS Workshop on Catalyzing Communities of Research Rigor Champions
    May 23, 2022 - May 24, 2022
    Description: This workshop brought together a diverse cross-sector group of individuals who promote rigor and transparency in biomedical research and are invested in catalyzing change. The champions of today and tomorrow were represented--from grassroots movements of early career researchers who want to see a better future for their generation, to the faculty seeking change within their labs and institutions, to the high-level institutional leaders who are redefining the future of their institution’s success.
  • Enhance Rigor and Reproducibility in Animal Research by Managing Extrinsic Factors
    September 23, 2022 - September 30, 2022
    The workshop served as a forum to discuss the current status of and needs for understanding extrinsic environmental factors, their potential impact on animal research outcomes, as well as how facilities may optimally manage, monitor, and report these extrinsic factors to enhance rigor and reproducibility in animal research.
