Promoting Research Consistency with the Church Lab
In collaboration with HMS IT Research Data Management, the George Church Lab developed customized Data Management Onboarding and Offboarding Checklists, designed to streamline and improve existing lab protocols and procedures. Introduced at a recent lab meeting, the checklists will be utilized to support the lab’s mission, while alleviating some of the administrative burden.

Congratulations to the Church Lab for all their hard work!

What people are saying about the online data management training:

“Thank you so much for organizing these webinars. This pandemic happened and I finally managed to attend your seminars online! This is a great resource. I am looking forward to the next seminar.” Postdoc, Harvard University 

“I really liked this seminar. It was just a little interactive, but not overbearing. I also like the Zoom nature. I think even with COVID re-opening, I would be more likely to attend these kinds of seminars if they are still online rather than having to go in person.” Student, HMS

“These seminars are an incredible resource. Thank you for your support and desire to help everyone be successful, especially with this training while in a quarantine -- it has allowed me to learn and be exposed to a whole new world of resources.” Staff, Affiliated Hospital

“These are absolutely fantastic!! Please continue to host.” Research Affiliate, IQSS
