Malcolm Macleod is professor of Neurology and Translational Neuroscience at the Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences, University of Edinburgh. His lecture will be on the quality of biomedical research. He argues that the quality needs to be improved. The translation of animal studies to human practice is limited, partially caused by the choice of methods. However, studies with methodologies that reduce bias, often show notably smaller effect sizes. Moreover, improvements can be made in for example preregistration, study protocols and interpretation of results (including p-values).
