Evaluation of Scientific Rigor in Animal Research

The “reproducibility crisis” in biomedical research has led to questions about the scientific rigor in animal research, and thus the ethical justification of animal experiments. In research publishing in the Open Access journals PLOS Biology and PLOS ONE on December 2nd, 2016, researchers from the University of Bern have assessed scientific rigor in animal experimentation in Switzerland. The study, commissioned by the Swiss Federal Food Safety and Veterinary Office (FSVO), found widespread deficiencies in the reporting of experimental methodology.

Global Biological Standards Institute (GBSI) gathers 100+ biomedical research experts from around the world next week at the scientifically historic Asilomar Conference Grounds in California for a workshop to discuss, define and vote on the first detailed standardized guidelines for validating research antibodies. Antibody Validation: Standards, Policies, and Practices will build upon the conceptual framework published September 5, in Nature Methods, in order to establish practical, applicable and implementable antibody validation guidelines. A webcast press briefing will present broad consensus-based outcomes September 28. Follow along on Twitter with #AbValidate.

Crowd-Sourcing in Research: Wildlife Diseases Challenge Grant

little-brown-bat-with-wns-300.jpg

When Experiment.com, an online platform for funding scientific discoveries, decided to issue a grant challenge addressing wildlife diseases, they invited UA’s own Dr. Hazel Barton, professor of biology and geoscience, to submit a project. Barton is recognized as having one of the world’s preeminent cave microbiology labs and has been studying white-nose syndrome (WNS), a fungal infection that is killing millions of hibernating North American bats.

Preventing Mass Extinctions of Big Mammals Will Require Immediate Action

121357_web.jpg

Preventing the extinction of gorillas, rhinoceroses, elephants, lions, tigers, wolves, bears and the world's other largest mammals will require bold political action and financial commitments from nations worldwide. In an article in the journal BioScience, 43 wildlife experts write that without immediate changes, many of the Earth's most iconic species will be lost.

Call to Re-Examine “14-Day Rule” Limiting in Vitro Human-Embryo Research

Bioethicists from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and The Hastings Center, working with a research administrator at The Rockefeller University, are proposing a reexamination of an internationally recognized rule limiting in vitro research on human embryos to 14 days post-fertilization. Under the rule, such research is permitted before the cut-off date at 14 days and prohibited thereafter.

Influence of Religion and Predestination on Evolution and Scientific Thinking

114334_web.jpg

Generally seen as antithetical to one another, evolution and religion can hardly fit in a scientific discourse simultaneously. However, biologist Dr Aldemaro Romero Jr., Baruch College, USA, devotes his latest research article, now published in the open access Research Ideas and Outcomes (RIO), to observing the influences a few major religions have had on evolutionists and their scientific thinking over the centuries.

Risks Are Less Likely to Be Reported by Public-Health Researchers Paid by Industry or Military

Scientists looking for environmental and occupational health risks are less likely to find them if they have a financial tie to firms that make, use, or dispose of industrial and commercial products, a University of Illinois at Chicago researcher has found.
