Quest for Research Excellence Conference

Conference: The Office of Research Integrity’s 2017 Quest for Research Excellence Conference

co-sponsored by ORI, GWU and PRIM&R, will be held at The George Washington University, Washington, DC, August 7-9.

To help break down disciplinary and professional silos the conference will be organized around four themes, each tackled from the perspectives of various stakeholders: research misconduct, the responsible conduct of research, the legal implications of research misconduct, and scientific publications. Plenary and breakout sessions will address cross-cutting topics related to each of these four themes, from case studies highlighting key aspects of the handling of research misconduct cases to discussions on the dissemination of science in 2017.  Sir Philip Campbell, Editor-in-Chief of Nature publications, will be delivering the keynote address. https://ori.hhs.gov/Q4RE2017_callforabstracts  , https://ori.hhs.gov/Q4RE2017_agenda
