Seminar in the responsible conduct of research

We continue to offer a seminar in the responsible conduct of research. Students in this seminar discuss topics that have the potential to impact their careers, including statistics and data management, manipulative experiments in nature, conflicts of interest, authorship, manuscript review, and the role of scientists in society. Each week features a different faculty member who participates as a guest resource person. Enrollment in the current offering includes students from four different UC Davis graduate programs, plus one student from a joint doctoral program between UC Davis and San Diego State University. Including students from different scientific disciplines has greatly enriched the discussion.
