SERIES DETAILS 

The current COVID-19 pandemic has changed the academic and research experience for scientists, and is sure to impact marginalized and minoritized populations. This 5-part series offers guidance and perspectives on the impact of COVID-19 on the training, scientific maturation, and career progression of URMs in the biomedical sciences.

Audience: Students (all levels), postdoctoral scientists, early/mid-career professionals, faculty, program directors/administrators.

This series in only a fraction of the content presented by ABRCMS Online. Please click here to view all content in ABRCMS Online.


**Note: This is an on-demand and self-study series.

Research Experience in the Time of COVID-19
With many programs not offering research experiences this summer, how can you still get the benefits of research experience? This series will provide resources, activities, and strategies within the ABRCMS network to consider for remote summer research opportunities.

Research Careers and the COVID-19 Impacts on Minoritized Students
The current pandemic has long-ranging implications for research careers and scientific progression of trainees at all levels. This series will present current research, resources, and perspectives on the impact of COVID-19 on diversity in the biomedical sciences.

Mental and Emotional Health of Minoritized Students during COVID-19
Of all the impacts of COVID-19, minoritized student populations stand to be disproportionately affected by rapid changes. This series will explore research, resources, and perspectives on working with minoritized students and supporting their mental and emotional health.

Implicit Bias in the Time of COVID-19
During times of crisis, incidents of implicit bias may be more pronounced—especially given the rapidly changing landscape for internships and jobs. This series will analyze current research, best practices, and perspectives on the impact of COVID-19 on implicit bias in the biomedical sciences.

The Changing Grant Landscape for Minoritized Scientists
The current pandemic is certain to change grant priorities and opportunities for minoritized scientists. This series will provide perspectives on the changing grant landscape and explore emerging opportunities for minoritized scientists.

What Lies Beneath—Data Preparation and Interpretation

Published in Blog

Research in the biomedical sciences has become increasingly reliant on large data sets to provide meaningful experimental validation. However, dealing with large data sets presents challenges that are distinct from those experienced by most biomedical researchers doing data evaluation, processing, and presentation. How do we begin to make sense of these expansive data sets while ensuring statistical quality and experimental validity?
