Responsible Research 2017

July 20, 2017: Keynote Lectures by Prof. Dr. Joachim Heberle, DFG Ombudsgremium für die Wissenschaft / FU Berlin; Prof. Dr. Marcus Munafò, University of Bristol; Prof. Dr. Debora Weber-Wulff, HTW Berlin. Avoiding Plagiarism, Animal Research, Clinical Trials, Experimental Design and Statistics, Image Analysis, Open Science.

The graduate programs of the Life Science Campus Großhadern/Martinsried are jointly hosting an event on responsible research conduct.

All researchers are obliged to conform to rules of Good Scientific Practice. These rules are often implicit - the border between acceptable and unacceptable practice is often unclear. Many research institutions have formulated guidelines, which are binding to all its members.

Teaching and training responsible conduct in research is, however, often neglected. For this reason, the life science programs in Großhadern/Martinsried and the GraduateCenterLMU are jointly organizing a campus-wide educational event aimed towards next generation researchers.

What is responsible research conduct? How can I present data accurately? What exactly is plagiarism, and how can it be avoided? What are the pros and cons of peer review publication? What is an Ombudsperson? These - and more - topics will be addressed.

Please save the date: Thursday, 20th July 2017 from 13:00 - 19:00 pm at the LMU Biocenter. The program continues informally with a barbeque dinner on the terrace.

Please note that due to limited capacity, a participation in the Breakout Sessions cannot be guaranteed.
