NC TraCS Responsible Conduct of Research

Wed. 14 Jul, 2021 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) can be described as good citizenship in research conduct. Faculty and staff must show integrity by reporting their work honestly and accurately. Understanding the concept of RCR is a necessity to being a successful part of research at UNC-Chapel Hill.

TraCS is sponsoring a 3-day course in RCR. The course covers all the NIH-required topics for the first phase of responsible conduct of research training. Individuals who have had prior RCR training may volunteer to serve as discussion leaders for the course to document ongoing RCR exposure if needed for training grants.

In order to receive credit for course completion participants must attend all three sessions. There is no charge for the course.

This virtual FASEB Science Research Conference is focused on exploring the role of nutrition in innate and adaptive immunity. The conference will bring together graduate students, postdocs, and junior and senior investigators from academia and industry.

The main themes of this conference will address the complex interplay between dietary nutrients and outcomes associated with the microbiome, infection, and inflammation in the context of health and disease.

Conference sessions will present the latest research and foster discussion on:

  • Diet, Microbiome, and Immunity During Infancy
  • Prebiotics, Probiotics, and Immune Health
  • Nutritional Immunity: The Battle for Nutrients Between Host and Bacteria
  • Obesity: Impacts on Innate and Adaptive Immunity
  • Diet and Infection in the Age of COVID
  • Environmental and Nutritional Stressors on Immunity
  • Food Components Impact Adaptive Immunity
  • Dietary Patterns, Inflammation, and Disease Risk
  • Diet, Inflammation, and Cancer

The conference covers nine sessions with 10 selected abstracts for short talks, and a "Meet the Expert" session in a speed-dating format, to allow engagement between junior and senior investigators. Nicole Baumgarth, PhD, DVM (University of California, Davis) will present the keynote lecture.

Real World Evidence in the COVID Era: The National COVID Cohort Collaborative

Wed. 28 Jul, 2021 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The National COVID Cohort Collaborative: Clinical Characterization and Early Severity Prediction

Join the NC TraCS Comparative Effectiveness Research team for a discussion on the National COVID Cohort Collaborative (N3C). This discussion will be led by Richard Moffitt, PhD, of Stony Brook University. The majority of U.S. reports of COVID-19 clinical characteristics, disease course, and treatments are from single health systems or focused on one domain. Here we report the creation of the National COVID Cohort Collaborative, a centralized, harmonized, high-granularity electronic health record repository that is the largest, most representative U.S. cohort of COVID-19 cases and controls to date. This multi-center dataset supports robust evidence-based development of predictive and diagnostic tools and informs critical care and policy.
