Session Title:
Granite has fallen. Acquiring animals for teaching and research-The new Animal Resource Managment System
Presenters:
Lonnie Kendall,Diana Collins
Category:
Research
Date:
Tuesday, January 12th 2016
Start Time:
8:30 AM
Session Length:
1 Hour
Room:
308-10 LSC
Description:
LAR has long been the central location for acquiring animals for teaching and research. The legacy Granite system has been replaced with an upgraded Animal Resource Management System which ties into eProtocol. This system will be the resource investigators need to acquire animals for their teaching and research and we'll review the pertinent features for ordering and transferring.
Goals and Target Audience:
All personnel that use animals in teaching and research.

9:45 AM

Session Title:
Human Subjects Protection Training Offered by the Research Integrity & Compliance Review Office (RICRO)
Presenters:
Matt Hickey,Gene Gloeckner,Evelyn Swiss,Tammy Felton-Noyle,Molly Gutilla,Claire Calhoun
Category:
Research
Date:
Tuesday, January 12th 2016
Start Time:
9:45 AM
Session Length:
2 Hours
Room:
312 LSC
Description:
Do you plan to conduct research that involves human volunteers? If so, do you know that if your research meets the regulatory definition of “research” with “human subjects,” you are required to complete a documented form of human subject’s protection training prior to conducting your research? This session provides you an opportunity to receive this required training (conducted by the IRB Chairs and RICRO IRB staff). The session includes: a. History and Ethical Principles b. Regulations that all human subjects research must follow c. Basics of Informed Consent, and what form is appropriate? d. CSU protocol submission-and-review processes
Goals and Target Audience:
The IRB training policy at CSU is that all Principal Investigators (PI), Co-Principal Investigators (Co-PI), and “key personnel,” on NIH-funded grants are required to complete human subjects training. The goal of this training is to ensure that all participants learn the history and basic ethical principles that the IRB follows, an overview of the regulations that must be adhered to, key consent requirements, and the nuts and bolts of submitting a protocol to the IRB. Training must be updated every three years.

1:00 PM

Session Title:
Research Data Rigor, Ownership, and Access at CSU: What’s New that Impacts You?
Presenters:
Carolyn Broccardo,Daniel Draper,Linda Schutjer
Category:
Research
Date:
Tuesday, January 12th 2016
Start Time:
1:00 PM
Session Length:
1 Hour
Room:
328-30 LSC
Description:
There is a heightened national awareness on the issue of research data quality and management. In an effort to foster research that is reproducible, robust, and transparent, the National Institutes of Health has introduced the data Rigor and Reproducibility initiative. This includes new requirements for grant applications submitted January 25, 2016 and beyond; researchers will be required to follow strict new rules on the reporting of their scientific premise, experimental design, choice of sex/other biological variables, and authentication of key biological and/or chemical resources. Don’t be caught off guard by these new requirements! Another aspect of data transparency is good data management and storage. CSU Libraries presents opportunities to self-archive data in the CSU Digital Repository and make them available to the global research community and discoverable via the Internet, leading to increased citations and satisfied mandates for open access. It hosts over 70,000 digital objects produced at CSU, including research data, oral histories, presentations, video, posters, reports, conference proceedings, and photographs. The digital repository provides stability with responsive services to preserve and provide access. Finally, in an effort to formalize researchers responsibility regarding data management, CSU is in the process of approving a research data policy outlining the issues of data ownership, storage, transfer, and sharing. This policy will affect anyone at CSU who produces research data; our goal in developing this policy is to better support CSU researchers in establishing a data management plan per federal guidelines and general good data management practices.
Goals and Target Audience:
Goals: We will discuss three new efforts that will impact researchers at CSU 1) the NIH Data Rigor and Reproducibility initiative, 2) the proposed CSU research data policy, and 3) the new CSU central data repository. Target Audience: These changes will affect those doing any type of research at CSU that generates data, and those seeking funding from the National Institutes of Health in 2016 and beyond.

Session Title:
Data Quality and Data Integrity: Practical Approaches for the Research Environment
Presenters:
Catherine Bens,Karen Dobos
Category:
Research
Date:
Tuesday, January 12th 2016
Start Time:
2:15 PM
Session Length:
2 Hours
Room:
386 LSC
Description:
Data Quality and Data Integrity are key components in assuring the reliability, accuracy and confidence of our research data. Recent increases in publication retractions and difficulties in assuring research reproducibility, have resulted in increased scrutiny by funding agencies in data integrity and quality. This program will review basic concepts of Data Quality and Data Integrity and present practical applications in the research environment. Promoting a quality culture and the impact of poor Data Quality and Data Integrity will also be discussed.
Goals and Target Audience:
Goals: To review the principles and practices of data quality and data integrity and how they might be applied in the everyday research environment. Target Audience: Researchers who are interested in improving or assuring data quality and integrity in their research environment

Session Title:
Insider Tips on Submitting an IACUC Protocol
Presenters:
Laura Hinds,Lon Kendall
Category:
Research
Date:
Wednesday, January 13th 2016
Start Time:
8:30 AM
Session Length:
1 Hour
Room:
306 LSC
Description:
Many research investigators find writing and submitting an IACUC protocol to be a daunting task. If you are a researcher working with animals, learn how to reduce the amount of time you spend writing and submitting IACUC protocols, what the IACUC is really looking for in each section of the protocol, and how the protocol process works.
Goals and Target Audience:
This session will be extremely helpful for new and seasoned investigators who will be submitting IACUC protocols by making the process easier. Goals for participants after this session include knowing the purpose for each section of the eProtocol form, what the IACUC is expecting to see in each section, understanding the process of protocol submission, amendments, and continuing reviews and applying this knowledge to increase efficiency when they work with the IACUC and eProtocol in the future.

11:00 AM

Session Title:
Research with International Students and Scholars – Export Compliance for CSU
Presenters:
Scot Allen,Paul Collier,Lisa Pappas,Grant Calhoun,Claire Calhoun
Category:
Research
Date:
Wednesday, January 13th 2016
Start Time:
11:00 AM
Session Length:
1 Hour
Room:
382 LSC
Description:
How does CSU balance the imperative for a tier 1 research institution to bring in talented students and scholars from around the world with the requirement to comply with export control laws and regulations? We use a decision tree that considers restrictions on research and the level of sensitivity of the technology, as well as federal rules about the country in question. Panelists from the Offices of International Programs, General Counsel, and the Vice President for Research will lead a discussion of CSU’s approach to resolving this dilemma. Come join the conversation.
Goals and Target Audience:
Participants will have the opportunity to engage with panelists and one another in a workshop format. Attendees will hear from the speakers and work together on scenarios, to come away from the session with an understanding of the CSU decision-making process. Ultimately, the goals are to bring in the most qualified researchers and remain in compliance with the law.
