Behind the success: Best practices for building a Team Science research project

Access this virtual conference on demand to learn how your colleagues have designed and executed large collaborative basic and clinical research projects.

Team Science is a broad term that can incorporate many types of large collaborative research projects. Research projects may consist of researchers doing similar experiments or collecting similar data across institutions or countries (like in cases of large-scale clinical trials) or the work may be broken up based on complementary specializations and assigned to different institutions based on their core expertise. Conference speakers have led and participated in large consortia in Team Science projects in basic and clinical sciences and epidemiology and will speak on their experiences based on their successes and lessons learned.

Presenters will discuss:

  • Planning large research collaborations and large teams
  • Data concerns including consistency in collection, securing data, HIPAA, sharing data, who owns the data
  • Sharing information and data (internally and externally to the project)
  • Authorship - who is an author, who gets credit for what part of the research
  • Intellectual property rights
  • Leading diverse teams with cultural differences

Member-in-Training:  $55
Member:  $89
Nonmember:  $129

*Certificate available upon completion of the conference.
