DVS Workshop: Data Management and Grants: Complying with Mandates

Events - All Combined (Huginn Feed) - Wed, 2017-04-12 14:00
Wed, Apr 12, 2017
10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
Bostock Library - The Edge Workshop RoomFirst Floor
Today, researchers are increasingly faced with requirements from both federal and private funders to share, archive, and plan for the management of their data. This trend began in 2003 when NIH released their data sharing policy and in 2011 the NSF began requiring that all grant proposals include a two-page Data Management Plan (or DMP). Then in 2013 an Office of Science and Technology Policy Memo directed all federal agencies with over $100 million in annual funding to develop plans to make research products, including data, openly accessible. This workshop will provide an overview of funding agencies' DMP requirements, the primary components of data management plans, and suggestions for integrating data management updates into grant reporting. Attendees will also learn about tools and resources that can help them write a DMP that complies with funder mandates. A portion of this workshop will include a hands-on data management plan exercise.

Rubenstein 153 (Holsti-Anderson Family Assembly Room)
West Campus

Jeff Baker, M.D., Ph.D will present Technology, Hope, and Motherhood:  What We Can Learn from the History of the Infant Incubator.  At the turn of the last century, a new medical invention known as the infant incubator captured the imagination of physicians and the public.   The device became a public sensation and appeared in settings ranging from hospitals to world fairs midway side-shows (complete with live infants).   But in the process it set off a great controversy regarding whether so-called premature and weak infants should be rescued in the first place, and whether their care should be entrusted to mothers, physicians, or scientifically-trained nurses.

Dr. Baker is the Director of the Trent Center for Bioethics, Humanities & History of Medicine and Professor of Pediatrics in the School of Medicine at Duke University. He is the author of The machine in the nursery : incubator technology and the origins of newborn intensive care and a world renowned authority on the history of the infant incubator.
