Rehabilitation Research News: June 13, 2022

From the Director's Desk

Good morning! This issue is a little lighter than usual. I would draw your attention to three announcements from NICHD:

  • NICHD and NINDS have published a Request for Information regarding a Workshop on Cerebral Palsy. 
  • The National Advisory Child Health and Human Development Council meets June 14 and 15, 2022. Please join us on the NIH VideoCast.
  • NICHD has initiated the recruitment process for the clinical director position. The vacancy announcement is posted on the NIH Executive Careers website.


Announcement on Reproducible Rehabilitation

We are pleased to announce the official launch of the Reproducible Rehabilitation (ReproRehab) program External Web Site Policy! ReproRehab is an NCMRR-funded R25 research educational program designed to build a sustainable national workforce of rehabilitation researchers equipped with basic data science skills to improve reproducibility in research. 

ReproRehab aims to provide an innovative, hands-on bootcamp to teach rehabilitation researchers some basic data science skills to integrate into their own research; leadership opportunities for rehabilitation researchers who are already proficient in data science to train others; and a curated Web-database of data science resources (e.g., online courses, training opportunities, open-source datasets and software), with community-sourced reviews, specifically for rehabilitation researchers. 

As we get started, we invite you to participate in our needs assessment External Web Site Policy survey by June 30, 2022, to help shape the future of ReproRehab. Responses should take less than 20 minutes and will help us tailor our initial course and Web offerings. Three participants will be randomly selected to receive a $50 Amazon gift card. 

Applications External Web Site Policy to participate in ReproRehab are also now open—apply to be a learner or a teaching assistant by August 15, 2022!
