Kaizen - R2T

  • The National Institute of Health (NIH) requires formal instruction in Scientific Rigor, Reproducibility & Transparency (R2T) for all federally-funded trainees. In support of high quality investigation and in our commitment to scientific integrity, UAB based the R2T-Kaizen course upon the review of articles focusing on common errors and fallacies in scientific research as well as the (4) focus areas of R2T: scientific premise, authentication of chemical and biologic resources, consideration of sex and other biologic variables in study design and statistical rigor. All T, K, F awardees are encouraged to play but it is open to all investigators at UAB, across the CCTS Partner Network, and around the country.

    The CCTS Hub based the R2T-Kaizen course upon the review of articles focusing on common errors and fallacies in scientific research as well as the (4) focus areas of R2T: scientific premise, authentication of chemical and biologic resources, consideration of sex and other biologic variables in study design and statistical rigor.
