Participants will be challenged to consider possible misperceptions about the responsible practice of research as well as strategies to promote integrity in the conduct of research, relationships among researchers, and responsibilities to society. In particular, participants will be introduced to ways in which rationalizations and blind spots put us all at risk of behaviour that may breach good practice.

A discussion of good research practices that can decrease the risk of succumbing to those rationalizations and blind spots will follow.

Participants will consider how adopting good practices in research cannot only facilitate quality research but also decrease the risk of research misconduct.

About Reproducibility and Responsible Research Conduct with Professor Michael Kalichman, University of California

Michael Kalichman

Reproducibility in research is a hot topic at the moment, especially in the areas of medical and health sciences but more generally in relation to public confidence in research.

Professor Michael Kalichman of the University of California, San Diego will be visiting UQ on 23-25 July 2019. Professor Kalichman will be presenting a public lecture on the subject of Rigor and Reproducibility: Why can't we do better? and a series of face to face workshops considering issues relating to research reproducibility and responsible research conduct for early to mid-career researchers and HDR students.

In conjunction with these events a staged reading of Professor David Abramson’s play ‘Purely Academic’ will be held featuring some well-known senior academics of UQ.

Professor Kalichman trained in engineering and neuropharmacology and has taught research ethics for over 25 years. He is founding director of the Research Ethics Program since 1997, the San Diego Research Ethics Consortium since 2006, and the Ethics Service for the NIH CTSA-funded Clinical and Translational Research Institute since 2010. In addition, Kalichman is a co-founding director for the Center for Ethics in Science and Technology since 2004.

Professor Kalichman is internationally renowned as a leader in ‘train the trainer’ and training post-graduate students and early to mid-career researchers in understanding, discussing and applying research ethics and integrity in the conduct of their research.
