Making Research More Useful: Reproducibility, Translation, and Incentives
"How do we correct and deal with the medical misinformation mess?" In the context of the reproducibility crisis, Dr. Ioannidis explains the importance of meta-analyses, but also how meta-analyses can present unique problems. Learn the eight features of useful research, which should be considered before carrying out any study. Presented by Dr. John Ioannidis, Professor, Medicine & Health Research & Policy; Co-Director, Meta-Research Innovations Center, Stanford University. (2017)
BC Children’s Hospital investigator Dr. Kyla Hildebrand not only conducts research in the area of allergy and clinical immunology, but this clinical assistant professor in the Department of Pediatrics in the Faculty of Medicine at the University of British Columbia is also well known for her leadership in undergraduate and postgraduate medical education.

We believe there’s nothing we can’t do with your support. It can take years to turn scientific breakthrough into new interventions and treatments. Funding helps speed the pace of change. When given the resources, we can bring transformative therapies – and hope – out of the laboratory and into the clinic to save and improve children’s lives.
