NINDS Workshop on Catalyzing Communities of Research Rigor Champions

May 23, 2022 - May 24, 2022

This workshop will bring 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 will be 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. Over the course of two days of interactive discussions, the group will seek to identify critical strategies and tactics that help bring change in research institutions. The objective of this meeting is to empower participants to catalyze communities of rigor champions, within U.S. research institutions and through inter-institutional networks, to accelerate change towards prioritizing research rigor and transparency.
