Equipping Life Sciences Researchers With Reproducible Research Tools and Best Practices

As more researchers aim to adopt open computational research practices, there is a strong demand to turn these principles from theory to practice — and make the associated skills more broadly accessible to researchers and trainees. The Reproducibility for Everyone (R4E) initiative runs one- to two-hour workshops alongside domain conferences to train life sciences researchers in reproducibility tools and best practices. Since its inception in 2017, R4E has successfully provided reproducible research training to thousands of life scientists. 

In 2020, CZI announced a new grant to support the R4E initiative. With this support, R4E hired April Clyburne-Sherin as its first full-time employee to focus on developing resources to create an annual circuit of core conferences. This funding will help scale the organization via governance and equity planning, documentation creation for easier onboarding and automated reporting, and outreach to new volunteers, new conferences, and new communities.
