SickKids Research Integrity Symposium 2023

Posted by Jaq-Lin Larder on April 24, 2023 in Events

On Wednesday May 17, the SickKids Research Integrity Office will be hosting a Research Integrity symposium.  

Dr. Tim Errington, Senior Director of Research at the Center for Open Science, will be speaking on The Reproducibility Project: Cancer Biology, a large-scale systematic investigation into the replicability of high-impact, preclinical cancer biology experiments.

In ‘Barriers to replicating preclinical cancer biology research - challenges or opportunities?’ Dr. Errington discusses the challenges in designing and conducting replications, difficulties in understanding and replicating the original methods and findings, and the outcome of the projects findings.  A panel discussion will follow Dr. Errington’s presentation with expert members of the SickKids research community.

These talks are open to everyone involved in research at SickKids and the wider research community.
