Research Integrity Round 22 March 2023

What makes doing science so attractive to Hedi Claahsen, professor of Differences in sex development & transgender care? And was Sandra Heskamp, professor of Nuclear imaging and therapy in immuno-oncology, ever confronted with sloppy science or questionable research practices? Which temptations did Bas Bloem, professor of Neurological movement disorders, successfully withstand to stay on track in science?

Anything you ever wanted to ask these Radboudumc scientists, you can ask them during the online College Tour on 22 March 2023. Talk show host Dr Jos Kole will invite three experienced researchers from Radboudumc to talk freely about their successes and failures in research, the ambitions and dreams that drive them in science, their motivation and (perhaps sometimes?) desperation in doing research. What does make the life of a scientist meaningful? How did great success come about? Which discoveries are they most proud of?

Scientific integrity is often associated with avoiding fraud and keeping away from questionable research practices and sloppy science. Yet, this is a rather negative way to approach scientific integrity. Having attended several classes, courses and workshops on research integrity, one may easily get the idea that science is a muddy practice, better to be avoided than to join in. During this College Tour talk show, we want to turn things around and shed light on the other, more positive side: why is it so engaging to do research in an excellent way?

Of course, we won’t shut our eyes for all the things that may go wrong, the negative consequences of hard competition and perverse incentives. Yet, there is much that makes science worthwhile and there are all kinds of reason to try to do science in the best way possible.
