Health Policy Forum | How far should scientists go with data sharing? A debate about open science

Wednesday, September 13, 2017 -
11:00am to 12:30pm
Clark Auditorium

Registration is closed. 

Scientists are facing increasing calls to be more transparent with their methods, study results, and data. Advocates of open science believe that more broadly sharing data will improve the application and replicability of research, but critics warn of unintended consequences. This health policy forum features two distinguished speakers–PJ Devereaux, MD, PhD, FRCPC, Director of the Division of Cardiology at McMaster University, and Nigam Shah, MBBS, PhD, Associate Professor (Biomedical Informatics Research) and of Biomedical Data Science, Stanford–who will present different views on open science. Please attend and join in on this important debate.
