Rigor and Reproducibility in Physiological Research is the important focus of a symposium at AuPS 2018. Ensuring reproducibility in preclinical research, in the face of many publicised failures, is a challenge for all experimental physiologists. Professors Simon Gandevia (NEURA), David Vaux (WEHI) and Miranda Grounds (UWA) will discuss aspects of this problem, followed by a panel Q&A session. Deficiencies of experimental rigor and reproducibility affect our credibility as a discipline. We all need to think deeply about this problem and become part of the solution.
A discussion paper entitled Show me some discipline, by Prof Bill Phillips and Dr Severine Lamon provides an introduction and some context to this thorny challenge.
Physiology Education Workshop: A regular feature of the AuPS conference is the Education Workshop. This year, the focus of the workshop is 'MCQs in Physiology, Current Status and a National Database'.
Student and ECR Workshop: A workshop tailored to the needs of Student and ECR members of AuPS and a great networking event. Further details will be available soon.
Abstract submissions for free communication and poster sessions are open. Submissions close 24th September.
