UCSF Library, Director of Data Science and Open Scholarship

Scott Pegg

Chief Information Officer and Vice President, Research Infrastructure

Are you in the midst of designing a research study that will require you to collect a lot of data? Are you thinking about working with a vendor to store or process your research data securely? Have you completed a research study and are trying to get your work published in a journal that has data-sharing requirements?

The ability to generate large amounts of scientific data and combine data from multiple sources continues to increase rapidly. All scientists should have the skills to handle large volumes of complex data and utilize data sets in ways that respect intellectual property and privacy concerns.

Learn best practices in data management, strategies, tools, and techniques needed to securely manage your research data throughout a project, and how to comply with funder and journal requirements for data sharing.

Join your colleagues and earn credit toward your NIH Responsible Conduct of Research training.
