AACR 2015: Science Reproducibility: Proper Management and Publication of Data

Tuesday, April 21, 2015, 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM 
Grand Ballroom Salons A-B (Level 5), Pennsylvania Convention Center, Philadelphia, Pa.

Improper management of data, poorly written lab notebooks and irreproducibility are major road blocks for scientific progress and can be detrimental to one's career. In this Professional Advancement session, attendees will be introduced to open science focusing on how it can provide greater transparency and collaboration by allowing the sharing of negative data and large data sets. Journal editors will discuss the do’s and don’ts of data publishing and provide an in depth look at a case study. The Associate Member Council organizes several Professional Advancement Sessions aimed specifically toward the professional needs of graduate students, medical students and residents, and clinical and postdoctoral fellows. Each year the topics change to cover a broad range of interests relevant to early-career scientists. For AACR members, Professional Advancement Sessions are free with your Annual Meeting registration and are an added benefit of your membership. For nonmembers, there is an additional fee of $50 for attendance at each session to be paid on site. Participation is on a first-come, first-served basis, and space is limited. Nonmembers are required to pay on site.
