A large fraction of published non-clinical research findings in the life sciences turns out to be non-reproducible. This wastes resources in research and undermines public trust in science, potentially putting public funding of such research in danger. The webinar discussed the main reasons for lack of reproducibility with emphasis on inappropriate use of statistical approaches.
