Public Lecture "Reproducible Research: New Challenges and Solutions" (Professor John Ioannidis, M.D.,Stanford University)

Tuesday, July 4, 2017 from 3:00 to 4:30 p.m. Auditorium of the University Children's Hospital, Hoppe-Seyler-Str. 1, 72076 Tübingen


The Faculty of Medicine Tübingen is pleased to invite you to a thought-provoking and highly relevant interdisciplinary lecture. The talk is open to the public. Please feel free to bring colleagues.


Professor John Ioannidis, MD, DSC, is a professor of medicine, a professor of health research and policy, and a professor of statistics at Stanford University. Called "the scourge of sloppy science" by the British Journal of Medicine, Ioannidis is recognized as the leading clinical research methodologist of his generation for his work in evidence-based medicine and in appraising and improving the credibility of scientific studies and results. His 2005 PLoS Medicine article "Why Most Published Research Findings Are False" was the most accessed and downloaded article in PLoS history. In 2014, a series of papers in Lancet on "Increasing Value, Reducing Waste" by a group of authors including Ioannidis sparked an open debate on biomedical research, leading the German Research Foundation DFG to issue a statement on the "Replicability of Research Results" in 2017.
