Credibility in neuroscience: Ensuring a sustainable future for 21st century neuroscience research

25 October 2019
12:00 PM - 14:00 PM

Ensuring the credibility of research is to ensure it is reproducible, replicable, and reliable. Yet, for a whole range of reasons, biomedical research is under threat.

This is why the British Neuroscience Association (BNA), the UK’s largest professional body for all aspects of neuroscience, is undertaking a wide-reaching credibility in neuroscience programme. Designed to raise awareness, facilitate discussion and help all neuroscientists stay informed about credibility, the work will ensure the professional landscape adapts to meet the challenges it is facing. The programme will focus on:

  • Practical skills, tools and processes
  • Awareness, understanding, & facilitating cultural change
  • Changing the landscape in which neuroscientists operate
  • Opportunities for the HealthTech industry to support long-term credibility work.

The BNA is particularly interested in engaging with industry experts already practising 'Credibility' work to contribute to this programme. They are therefore delighted to invite you to a lunchtime meeting to hear about, discuss and facilitate information exchange on plans to drive this culture-changing piece of work.

This is the second time ABHI has partnered with BNA to coordinate industry engagement with the neuroscience sector. In our May 2019 meeting, firm interest was expressed in BNA’s credibility in neuroscience work. We are therefore pleased to deliver this follow-on meeting for members.

If you would like to attend, contact confirming your attendance. 


*This lunchtime seminar is kindly hosted by The Gatsby Charitable Foundation, which is  supporting the BNA to implement a programme of new activities to become a strong and prominent professional society for 21st century UK neuroscience.
