The NINDS Office of Research Quality will describe how to apply research rigor and transparency best practices to neuroscience. Presenters will describe a brief history of what led to the creation of the Office as well as ongoing and new initiatives directed at enhancing rigorous research practices, including a perspective by the NINDS Office of Training and Workforce Development on implementing some of these activities. Attendees will learn how they can get involved in some of these initiatives and work to enhance research quality in their own work. Graduate students, postdocs, and early career faculty are strongly encouraged to attend.

Our NINDS speakers include:

  • Shai Silberberg, PhD: Director, Office of Research Quality
  • Devon Crawford, PhD: Program Director, Office of Research Quality
  • Mariah Hoye, PhD: Health Program Specialist, Office of Research Quality 
  • Tish Weigand, PhD: Deputy Director, Office of Training and Workforce Development
