Restoring Rigor in Science

Tuesday, October 17, 2017 - 11:15am

This panel follows Monday's University Lecture by Richard Harris. The panel will provide perspective on how Cornell can provide leadership in restoring rigor by counteracting some of the problematic dynamics. Faculty perspectives include issues associated with getting published in top journals, acquiring the appropriate merits for tenure and promotion, and for proposing projects so innovative that they get funding.

Panelists are Marjolein vander Meulen, Biomedical Engineering; Tony Bretscher, Molecular Biology and Genetics; and Paula Cohen, Biomedical Sciences.
