If you are attending the Teratology Society 59th Annual Meeting in June, please note this year’s Professional Development Workshop organized by the Membership and Student Affairs Committees taking place Monday, June 24, 12:00 noon to 2:00 pm.
The workshop, titled "Irresponsible Conduct of Research: What Happens When Things Go Wrong?" will cover topics covered in the training required of NIH grantees, presented in a "pitfalls and case scenarios" approach. The workshop will consist of four 30-minute presentations which will give attendees an appreciation for social responsibility and the value of mentorship; data management from rigor, reproducibility, authorship, through peer review; financial management/collaboration and how to address conflicts of interest; and topics of concern when conducting research with human or animal subjects. The goal of the workshop is to raise awareness of these important topics and provide direction and inspiration for early and seasoned career scientists encountering these issues.
Separate registration is required to attend this workshop and boxed lunches will be provided for registrants. There is no fee for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to register. The member registration fee is $40 and the nonmember registration fee is $75. You may add this workshop when you register through the annual meeting website.
