Never Waste a Good Crisis: Confronting Reproducibility in Translational Research

Cell Metab. 2016 Sep 13;24(3):348-360. doi: 10.1016/j.cmet.2016.08.006.


The lack of reproducibility of preclinical experimentation has implications for sustaining trust in and ensuring the viability and funding of the academic research enterprise. Here I identify problematic behaviors and practices and suggest solutions to enhance reproducibility in translational research.
