UW Data Science Seminar: Sir Philip Campbell

Wednesday, April 5, 3:30 p.m. in Physics/Astronomy Auditorium A118


Sir Philip Campbell, editor-in-chief of Nature, will be presenting “Pressures on principal investigators and their need of support: A consultation” at next week's Data Science Seminar. The Data Science Seminar is free and open to the public.


The role of PIs in sustaining the progress and robustness of research is critically important,and yet the pressures on them - some well advised, some not - seem to keep growing. To help Nature's future coverage of these issues, I will present an overview of some of the key pressures on PIs and invite insights and proposals into how funders, universities and journals might best mitigate them.
