Join us for an engaging discussion with Elisabeth, Bik, PhD, a Science Integrity Consultant (Harbers Bik, LLC) and image forensics detective who left her paid job in industry to search for and report biomedical articles that contain errors or data of concern. She has done a systematic scan of 20,000 papers in 40 journals and found that about 4 percent of these contained inappropriately duplicated images.
Dr. Bik will share her work, image examples, and discuss the impact of incorrect or even falsified data on biomedical research.
Visit Microbiome Digest to view her related papers and articles as recently featured in Nature and Science, among others.
