You are invited to a special seminar by Dr Glenn Begley, CEO of Biocurate, clinical haematologist and medical oncologist, previous holder of senior academic and commercial roles in leading pharmaceutical companies in Australia, the USA and the UK.

As medical researchers, we all want to make a difference. We all want to make discoveries that have a real impact on human health. There are however many obstacles that prevent us from achieving this goal.

A key impediment is, unfortunately, the reward system that applies universally within academic research, and that provides a perverse set of incentives that reward flashy science with little regard for the quality, robustness or reliability of the work.That is particularly the case for papers published in the “top tier” journals. In this presentation Glen will review and ‘dissect’ several high-profile, highly cited publications that illustrate the problem. These highly cited publications, from famous investigators and their laboratories typically fail because experiments were not performed by blinded investigators, positive and negative controls were not used, experiments were not repeated, reagents were not validated, only select data was shown, and data analysis was inappropriate.

You are invited to lunch and this special seminar on  27 March 1245-1345. This seminar will change how you think about biomedical science.
