Meta-Research Innovation Center at Stanford

Stanford just announced a new center, named the Meta-Research Innovation Center at Stanford (METRICS). The press release says that it will focus on ways to transform research practices to improve the reproducibility, efficiency, and quality of scientific investigations.

I absolutely applaud this venture by Stanford and one of my personal science idols John Ioannidis, MD, DSc who I recently wrote about here.

As biomedical research presses on both in difficult and amazing times, the need for reproducibility, efficiency, and quality will be key in keeping the system productive. I am excited to see what this center and Dr. Ioannidis can achieve.
