Seminar “Reproducibility in biomedical research”, 12.04.2024

Reproducibility is crucial in the scientific process, where our ultimate goal is to provide reliable and useful results. The so-called reproducibility crisis has triggered many studies to analyze the problem and proposals to address it. In this seminar, speakers from different organizations will discuss reproducibility in biomedical research. They will cover the topic from different perspectives, ranging from applications in preclinical science, in biomarker development and GWAS studies, to a statistical, computational, and societal point of view. We hope that many of you can attend this exciting seminar. You can find the program and all information on the seminar here.

  • Date and Time: 12.4.2024; 13:00-18:00 CET
  • Hybrid event: Attend in person or online

Reproducibility Hackathon during the SIB Days, 24.06.2024

We will venture together to a place many have spoken of, but few have gone to – trying to reproduce the results of scientific papers. During the first day of the SIB Days in Biel/Bienne, we organize a Reproducibility Hackathon. If you are a SIB Member, sign up for the hackathon now. Find out more about the event at the SIB Days website.
