Focused Flexible Accelerated Studies Program

The ICTS FFASt program aims to provide various training opportunities to graduate students, post-doctoral students and junior faculty to ensure that they possess the core competencies to work effectively both in the broad discipline of translational science and in their specific area of research. To meet this goal the ICTS will provide a variety of trainings throughout the year through our Focused Flexible Accelerated Studies (FFASt) Workshops.


Scientific Rigor and Reproducibility of Research

There is a growing recognition that many published studies cannot be replicated for a variety of reasons. As a consequence, the scientific community and NIH understand that there needs to be an emphasis of instruction with respect to both rigor and reproducibility. This FFASt course will focus on approaches to enhance the overall integrity of the scientific process and address topics related to: i) experimental design; ii) analyses and statistics; iii) data management; iv) resource sharing; and v) publication and reporting.
