The lack of reproducibility in life sciences research, and particularly in Cancer Biology, is a growing concern in recent years, often referred to as ‘Reproducibility Crisis’. The Center for Open Science published in 2021, in the journal eLife, the results of its ‘Reproducibility Project: Cancer Biology’ reporting poor reproducibility of previously published results in the field of Cancer Research. In this workshop experts in different fields, through a transdisciplinary approach, will discuss the causes, the implications and potential solutions for the Reproducibility problems in Cancer Research.
Led by :
– Timothy Errington, researcher at the Center for Open Science and lead author in the 2021 eLife paper, will present the results from ‘Reproducibility Project: Cancer Biology’
– Marcus Munafò, Psychology professor at the University of Bristol and Chair of the UK Reproducibility Network will discuss the experience of Reproducibility in Psychology and its relevance for Cancer research
– Jacob Stegenga, Philosophy professor at the University of Cambridge will discuss the conceptual aspects of Reproducibility
– Dawn Teare, Biostatistician at the University of Newcastle will discuss the implications of the use and misuse of statistics in Reproducibility
– Frédéric de Lamotte, Bioinformatician at INRAE in Montpellier, will discuss open data and the importance of data accessibility for Reproducibility
– José Eduardo Gomes, Geneticist at the University of Bordeaux will discuss Reproducibility from the Genetics and Cell Biology researcher’s point of view.
