Lecture on better research by Malcolm Macleod, 29 August

2 years ago

On 29 August, expert Malcolm Macleod will give a talk titled “Research culture, open research and research integrity: What can we do to improve the value of research?”.

He will describe failures, over 20 years, of translatability within neurodegenerative disease and stroke research. Although the main reason for failure is likely the challenges in reversing complex phenotypes with pharmacotherapy, he will contextualize these failures as they might be addressed by more open research, research improvement and a more healthy research culture. There is also a ‘meet the expert’ session, where you can ask a question. You can come to the talk without singing in. For ‘meet the expert’, email Valeria Bonapersona.

The lecture will take place in the Yellow room, Stratenum, UMC Utrecht, 16:00-17:00. There will be drinks afterwards.
