NIH Scientific Rigor and Transparency Webinar Available for Principal Investigators

The NIH’s commitment to promoting rigorous and transparent research led to recent updates to research grant and career development award applications and progress reports guidelines.  In the April 2016 Sponsored Research Newsletter, we provided guidance on the new instructions, including the four key areas of focus and links to NIH resources. 

On July 13, a webinar with the NIH was held in order to enhance UCSF’s Principal Investigators’ understanding of the new policy.  The presentation deck and summary page can be found here. A recording of the event is also available here. Please note the audio is unstable until 13 minutes into the recording and ends at 37:48.
