At the beginning of a new academic year, we also start a new series of Research Integrity Rounds, the interactive events organized at the Radboudumc to stimulate dialogue and debate about matters of research integrity. All members of the academic community, from student to PhD candidate to professor, are invited to join this exchange again.
Are sex and gender a matter of research practice or of representation policy? And what do they have to do with research integrity? We will discuss this during the first Research Integrity Round of 2020-2021 on the topic sex and gender in (bio)medical research.
- Opening by prof. Jan Smit, dean and vice-chair Radboudumc
- The biomedical research process: is it really gender and sex neutral? Prof. Sabine Oertelt-Prigione (Radboudumc)
- The practice of biomedical process: are some still more equal than others? Prof. Hanneke Takkenberg (Erasmus University)
Time and location
Wednesday 16 September 16:00 – 17:30 hrs
Due to Corona-restrictions the meeting will be a webinar. Information about how to login will be given after you have registered.
Registration is required. Please register via www.radboudumc.nl/researchintegrityrounds.
We invite all master students and junior and senior researchers to attend this event and join the discussion.
Please note that PhD candidates can add the Research Integrity Rounds to their Training and Supervision Plan.
