Runtime: 01:00:55
Description: NIH Director’s Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series

More than $200 billion is spent worldwide annually on biomedical research but estimates suggest as much as 85 percent may be wasted. What are the determinants of research waste and is such a high figure justified? A series of five papers in The Lancet (January 8, 2014) introduced this topics in detail and is updated in this lecture. This presentation focuses on redundancy and duplication of research hypotheses, research designs that cannot reliably test hypotheses, publication bias, and irreproducibility. Solutions for reducing waste and increasing value are discussed.
