The Rigor, Reproducibility, and Transparency (RRT) Seminar Series is a series in collaboration with the University of Washington presented by faculty from each of the several ongoing training grants at Fred Hutch and UW. The series is in response to recently mandated RRT training by the NIH for trainees on training grants, F awards, and K awards. Lectures focus on a detailed discussion of common or emerging methodologies with the aim of describing strengths, limitations, and pitfalls so those employing or interpreting the data gain a realistic sense of what can and cannot be learned. Trainees are encouraged to attend lectures outside of their field of expertise as it is likely that they will encouter data from these methods, and understanding how they work and what their limitations are is crutial, so the talks are designed to be accessible to a broad biomedical audience.
All trainees on training grants are required to attend 4 lectures a year, and F & K awardees are strongly encouraged to participate.
The RRT seminar series will be held every 2 months. There are 2 ways to receive credit for participation:
1. Attend the seminar live
2. Watch the video recording of the seminar within 30 days
After attending live or viewing the recording, attendees will fill out a survey and state 3 things learned.
