There is a reproducibility crisis occurring in the life sciences that impacts all researchers, influencing the collection, analysis, and interpretation of their data. Recent surveys have shown that more than half of researchers struggle to reproduce not only the results of their fellow scientists, but their own experimental data as well. Irreproducible or questionable data can result in time-consuming, costly repetition of studies and, in some cases, misinterpreted or incorrect conclusions. One root cause of irreproducible results is a lack of understanding of the importance of sample quality. Running proper controls for sample quality is a necessary step in reducing questionable results, but this is often overlooked because of limited test material, lack of a convenient, comprehensive test, or pressure to meet rigorous deadlines. In this presentation, two experts will discuss the importance of understanding and monitoring sample quality, and how this can result in higher quality and more efficient, cost-effective research.
During the webinar, viewers will learn about:
• The impact of the reproducibility crisis on the scientific community and other vested parties
• Technologies that can easily be implemented into protein purification or characterization workflows to quickly analyze sample quality
• The use of high-resolution crystallography methods to decipher protein structure and regulatory functions
• The need to identify criteria and standards required to improve drug development and reduce the number of failed experiments.
Viewers can submit their questions to the panel during the live broadcast!
This webinar will last for approximately 60 minutes
