On October 13, 2017, the CRCHUM Conferences invites Dan Drucker, Senior Scientist, Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute, Mount Sinai Hospital. His talk will about the complexity of methodological, technical and ethical issues contributing to lack of reproducibility.


Reproducibility challenges in preclinical research threaten the integrity and viability of our research enterprise. Here I discuss the complexity of methodological, technical and ethical issues contributing to lack of reproducibility, with examples from studies of gut hormone and metabolism research. Strategies and “best practices” that may enhance the reproducibility and translational relevance of preclinical studies will be entertained.

This conference will be presented in English.
