Symposium ‘Improving scientific practice’

The persistent notion of the ‘good scientist’  as an infallible, dispassionate seeker of the truth  renounces the fact that science is a fundamentally human endeavor (Mahoney, 1976) and thwarts a more constructive discussion about the human factors that play a role in daily scientific practice. Just like other human beings, scientists are not immune to error, bias, irrationality, social influences, mistrust, and dishonesty.

Keynote speakers:

  • Professor John P. A. IoannidisC.F. Rehnborg Chair in Disease Prevention at Stanford University and Professor of Medicine and Director of the Stanford Prevention Research Center at Stanford University School of Medicine
  • Professor Melissa S. AndersonAssociate Dean of the Graduate School and Professor of Higher Education, University of Minnesota; Co-Chair, 3rd and 4th World Conferences on Research Integrity.
