Lab Talk - Replication crisis - lifting the lid on reproducibility

While the replication crisis can be a commonly mentioned issue, the background and causes of it may not be clear to all. Originating in the early 2010s, the term replication crisis refers to the fact that findings of many types of scientific research are often difficult or even impossible to replicate due to one or multiple issues raising concerns about the credibility of the findings. Along with this, the accuracy of existing scientific findings as well the matter of following correct procedure may be questioned.

AI, machine learning and automation in research

While most people won't experience much AI in their daily lives besides song or film recommendations, scientists and researchers regularly use it to explore much broader horizons in their work. While full AI utilisation across a body of research can be a difficult and lengthy process, it could potentially boost scientific discoveries across many fields. However, much like with any other tool used in research, both the added value and the negative aspects need to be considered when it comes to AI and machine learning.

Shared labs - the best solution to speed up R&D?

Creating a collaborative environment and streamlining resources can play a big part in increasing productivity and shared labs can have a big role in the process. While helping save costs and share knowledge, using shared resources can come with certain challenges as well. In our next Lab Talk we will discuss the benefits and challenges of shared laboratories, share tips in managing them and have a look at what the future of sharing resources might look like.

Mental health in the scientific world

Being based on the foundation of thoughts and inventions, working in science can have a big impact on one's mind. While mental health problems and illnesses can affect any member of the society, scientists and researchers are no exception as well. These days more than ever it is critical to acknowledge, recognise and support mental health issues as well as remove any stigmas surrounding them.
