METRICS

metaresearchThe Economist reported that John Ioannidis, together with Steven Goodman, later this month will open the Meta – Research Innovation Center at Standford University (METRICS). Generously supported by the Buck foundation , it will fight bad science, bias, and lack of evidence in all areas of biomedicine.  The institute’s moto is to ‘Identify and minimise persistent threats to medical research quality’. Those who have followed the work of Ioannidis and Goodman know that this is good news indeed! A concise overview of Ioannidis research can be found in this online article at Maclean’s.
