Attention NIH Investigators and Administrators,
I wanted to highlight some resources that are available for addressing rigor and reproducibility in your grant applications. In a July Open Mike blog post, NIH highlighted several resources that are readily available. These resources, plus many more, have been compiled in an easy-to-navigate online repository as part of the Research and Data Integrity (ReaDI) Program here at Columbia. You may already be aware of the ReaDI Program and the resources that are available to Columbia researchers, but if you want to know more, the ReaDI Program is hosting an online webinar on September 28, to provide a more detailed look at everything the ReaDI Program has to offer. Spaces are limited and registration is required for this online event.
In addition to the ReaDI Program resources, Dr. Michelle Benson, Assistant Director for Research Integrity and Compliance, and I are available to give presentations on NIH’s Rigor and Reproducibility Policy for individuals new to the NIH proposal process or are looking for a refresher. Contact us to discuss your needs at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. Thank you!
