BIOS 216: The Practice of Reproducible Research

This course will cover the basic principles and practices underlying rigorous and reproducible biomedical research, both in the clinic and the lab. Approximately 40% of the course will cover the basic scientific and statistical principles, with an emphasis on elements of design and analysis that pose threats to reproducibility; e.g. multiplicity, selective reporting, design effects, non-random assignment, pseudo-replication and handling of outliers. The remainder of the course will focus on computational approaches to ensure that all data, code, and analyses can be captured in a reproducible workflow, to be confirmed and replicated by you in the future, by other members of your team, and by reviewers and other researchers. We will cover how to satisfy FAIR principles, version control, how to create a git repository, utilize Github and how to create a reproducible dataset. Prerequisites: Basic knowledge of R. Recommended (not required): EPI 202 or 261/262, STATS 60, or MS&E 125

BIOS 246: A Practical Guide to Success in Science

Science is hard, in part because it is a search of the unknown, and in part because there is no handbook. This short workshop provides tips and strategies, collected over years from mentors, students and colleagues. These strategies will help your science and also help you, for example learning to identify and respect boundaries between work and vacation and how to bring (a bit of) joy to your everyday life as a scientist.

BIOS 302: Designing Your Life: Empowering Emerging Scientists

Design a fulfilling and impactful vision for your career and life as a whole. The primary purpose of the class is to develop a perspective and align your attitudes, actions and experiences with your values, priorities, and your own ultimate definition of victory for living an extraordinary life. A practical guide for career development, this class will provide training through conversations, self-analysis, and writing exercises on career direction, communication, and the development and leveraging of relationships skills that are central to success in any career as a scientist. We will examine what it means (and what it takes) to succeed in a variety of life domains, including money, health, career, relationships, and physical fitness as well as personal growth. We will dig into the darker side of being human, exploring phenomena like negative character traits, fears, hauntings, and regrets. Ultimately, we want you to gain insight into who you are, what you want most, and how you might more »

Ultimately, we want you to gain insight into who you are, what you want most, and how you might inadvertently and unwittingly get in your own way. We want you to learn how to confront the most vexing issues in your life, learn from them, and eventually transform your relationship to them. Course Structure: The course consists of ten intensive, flipped-classroom sessions designed to help you develop the skills and knowledge--and, more importantly, the insight and capacity--to be more strategic and effective in how you lead your life. It requires a willingness to be introspective and to consider personal feedback and constructive confrontation. Enrollment is capped at 30 learners, all of whom will be provided subscriptions to Inner.U which will serve as an electronic textbook and supported by a team of three faculty facilitators.
