Plan for Instruction in Methods for Enhancing Reproducibility diagram

Required for training grants, this document should address how trainees will be instructed at multiple stages of their development, in various formats, and in the context of trainees’ research projects, including:

  • Evaluation of the rigor of prior research
  • Rigorous experimental design and data interpretation
  • Consideration of relevant biological variables such as sex
  • Authentication of key biological and/or chemical resources
  • Transparency in reporting
  • How program faculty will reiterate and augment key elements of this plan within their trainee’s research projects
