"Scientific fraud: from Mendel to Stapel"
We regret to inform you that due to the effects of the coronavirus (SARS CoV-2) and the associated recommendation to avoid gatherings if not strictly necessary, we decided to cancel the IPH-Lecture with Frits Rosendaal on April 1st. We hope to catch-up this lecture at a later time.
Scientific fraud, or better ‘questionable research practices’, are probably as old as science itself. Nowadays, however, there are national and supranational research codes on scientific integrity, academic institutions have installed committees to investigate suspected breaches of scientific integrity, and there is even some research into scientific integrity itself.
The lecture will address the relevance of appropriate research attitudes, and the risks of scientific misconduct, and discuss some actual cases, as well as the relation of scientific integrity to its neighbouring fields research ethics and research waste.
Frits R Rosendaal is a medical doctor who is professor of Clinical Epidemiology at the Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC) in The Netherlands. His research is about cardiovascular disease, in particular blood coagulation, with a focus on aetiology and prognosis. He is co-chairman of the Committee on Scientific Integrity of the LUMC and Leiden University, and member of the CCMO, the national medical ethics committee. He is recipient of the Spinoza Award, the highest research prize in the Netherlands, and elected member of the Royal Academy of Arts and Sciences in the Netherlands, and the Academy Leopoldina in Germany.
His one-hour-lecture will be followed by a catered networking session immediately afterwards.
