In April 2015, The Academy of Medical Sciences, the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), the Medical Research Council (MRC) and the Wellcome Trust held a symposium entitled ‘Reproducibility and reliability of biomedical research’. It was clear from discussions at the symposium that this is an important issue that must be addressed effectively.
As a result, a document outlining the events and discussions taken place during the symposium was drawn up.
