Lab Talk - Navigating collaboration in a post-pandemic lab

The coronavirus pandemic has changed the nature of collaboration in all industries, and scientific research is one of them. Where scientists could previously work together in one lab, restrictions may have been placed on capacities, therefore affecting the dynamic and forcing them to adapt new methods. While the restrictions may now be decreasing, which new remote technologies will be staying with scientists in the future and which will be abandoned?

Lab Talk - Replication crisis - lifting the lid on reproducibility

While the replication crisis can be a commonly mentioned issue, the background and causes of it may not be clear to all. Originating in the early 2010s, the term replication crisis refers to the fact that findings of many types of scientific research are often difficult or even impossible to replicate due to one or multiple issues raising concerns about the credibility of the findings. Along with this, the accuracy of existing scientific findings as well the matter of following correct procedure may be questioned.

Lab Talk - AI, machine learning and automation in research

While most people won't experience much AI in their daily lives besides song or film recommendations, scientists and researchers regularly use it to explore much broader horizons in their work. While full AI utilization across a body of research can be a difficult and lengthy process, it could potentially boost scientific discoveries across many fields. However, much like with any other tool used in research, both the added value and the negative aspects need to be considered when it comes to AI and machine learning.
