Have You Heard About P-Hacking, Harking or Publication Bias? Do You Want to Know How to Improve Your Pre-Clinical Research With Simple Adjustments?

In this webinar, Prof. Dr. Ulrich Dirnagl, will talk about the reproducibility crisis plaguing academic research and how to improve the predictiveness of your preclinical translational research by promoting the introduction of quality standards for experimental design, reporting of in vivo experiments and the necessity to publish NULL-Results. He will teach you to improve your research practice and to obtain evidence for the impact of targeted interventions.

About the Speaker

Prof. Dr. Ulrich Dirnagl is the Director of the Department of Experimental Neurology at Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin and focused on stroke, cerebral blood flow regulation, and brain imaging utilizing pre-clinical models and clinical trials. Since 2017 he is also the founding director of the QUEST Center for Transforming Biomedical Research at the Berlin Institute of Health (BIH) at Charité. He is also the co-founder of SPARK-BIH.

QUEST (Quality-Ethics - open Science - Translation) aims at overcoming the roadblocks in translational medicine by increasing the value and impact of biomedical research through maximizing the quality, reproducibility, generalizability, and validity of research.
