The graduate programs of the Life Science Campus Großhadern/Martinsried are jointly hosting an event on responsible research conduct. Graduate students, postdocs, senior scientists - all are welcome!

Researchers are obliged to conform to rules of Good Scientific Practice. While this might seem obvious at first glance, a closer look reveals that these rules are often implicit, and sometimes the border between acceptable and unacceptable practice may remain unclear. To raise awareness on these questions, life science graduate programs on the Campus Grosshadern/Martinsried and the GraduateCenterLMU have joined forces to organize a campus-wide educational event.

What is responsible research? How can I present data accurately and reproducibly? What exactly is plagiarism, and how can it be avoided? What do I need to know about open science? What is an Ombudsperson? These – and more – topics will be approached for next generation researchers.
