“What makes science reliable? The ability to reproduce the results of an experiment, known as reproducibility, is one of the hallmarks of a valid scientific finding. But science is facing what many consider a reproducibility crisis, and the stakes are high. Many scientific claims cannot be replicated, and many clinical trials fail as a result. This 15-minute video examines the reproducibility crisis and reports on the outcome of five experiments designed to test the reproducibility of cancer biology studies.”
