Course Description

Why are biomedical sciences and especially preclinical research affected by a systematic quality problem? What are the reasons and how can they be addressed? How do I make my research reproducible? How do I ensure good research quality in my laboratory? In this seminar, we want to introduce PREMIER, a new tool that provides practical solutions to answer the quality questions in research. With its modular structure, PREMIER contributes to bringing reproducibility and quality in research into the focus again.

Target Audience

Scientists, laboratory managers, technical staff, students

Course Objectives

To create awareness of qualitative work in the laboratory: where are the hurdles / problems and how can they be easily solved.
