Tenneille Ludwig, Director – WiCell Stem Cell Bank, “The Three R’s of Research: Rigor, Reproducibility, and Redundancy”

April 28, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The UW Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine Center will continue to offer its weekly seminar, but we will transition to ONLINE only. We will be offering this live (synchronously), so you can participate in the Q & A session in real time.

To connect and join our live Tuesday Stem Cell Seminar Series (now online), please click on this public link: https://us.bbcollab.com/guest/ecfe2a1900ab4a6ca9bd6b20e4b7bb07

We do encourage you all to review the instructions, linked below, in order to orient yourselves to this environment. You are also welcome to jump into the room and test your ability to connect, including turning on your audio and video. Our center’s Administrator, Hollie, will be in the room starting at 10:30 AM CT and can offer assistance as time allows.

**STUDENTS: If you are a current student, an announcement has been posted to your Canvas course with instructions on how to access the course. IF you have issues getting into Canvas, please use guest link and let Hollie know via email.

The Three R’s of Research: Rigor, Reproducibility, and Redundancy

Tenneille Ludwig, Director – WiCell Stem Cell Bank

As scientists, we know that our curiosity and dedication, thoughtful experimental design, and institutional support drive the quality of our research. As stem cell scientists, there is another critically important factor. As we’ve learned over the past 20 years, the quality of our science is also directly related to the quality of the starting hPSC materials used. Poor quality cells can jeopardize results, waste time, and drain resources.  Fully one third of cell lines submitted to WiCell for distribution fail routine quality testing.  The issues we have identified can have a dramatic impact on the reliability of data obtained, and the validity of experimental results.  In this talk Dr. Ludwig will discuss the most common issues seen in laboratories globally, and strategies to address them in your research.  Combined with safeguarding materials, these strategies will help ensure reliable results, enable retrospective analysis and future studies, and satisfy reviewers “rigor and reproducibility” requirements for publication and grant application submission.
