CARE Panel: Reproducibility in Research

Feb 19, 2019, 12:00pm - 1:30pm
Thompson Library 165 (Columbus)

The Conversations About Research Ethics (CARE) program presents: Reproducibility in Research.

According to one recent Nature survey, more than 70% of researchers have tried and failed to reproduce another scientist’s experiments, and more than half have failed to reproduce their own experiments. Some claim that these findings point to a “Crisis of Reproducibility” and it has caused alarm in a far ranging number of disciplines. But is there really any crisis at play and if so what are the ethical responsibilities of researchers and institutions in addressing this trend? This panel will discuss the potential ethical implications for the lack of reproducibility in research results not only for the reliability of science but also for the safety of research subjects.
