Event Description:

Columbia University and NYC Co-Sponsors are bringing another PCRI Symposium to the NYC area. This day-long symposium will address potential effects of bias on the scientific enterprise from the perspectives of leading experts, high-profile journal editors, funders, and researchers. Each session will present potential solutions to promote research quality so that attendees leave with strategies to enhance their own science. This stimulating and provocative program is for researchers at all stages of their careers.

NYC Co-Sponsors include City University of New York, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York University, New York University School of Medicine-NYU Langone Medical Center, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, The Rockefeller University and Weill Cornell Medicine.
