    Research Ethics: Uncertainty Reproducibility and Truth in Science

    Research Ethics: Uncertainty Reproducibility and Truth in Science

    The promise of science is great, but the application of new technologies often raises profound ethical questions. Answering those questions depends on both critical philosophical inquiry and good data. Unfortunately, the reliability of the science is in question. Theoretical and empirical investigations have caused many to believe that science now faces a reproducibility crisis: Much that is published by one team of scientists cannot be reproduced by another. Research ethicist Mike Kalichman, addresses the magnitude of this crisis, factors contributing to research findings that are not reproducible, and identifying strategies that will promote the rigor and reproducibility of science.

    Our Warming Ocean

    Our Warming Ocean

    When we think about climate change, we often focus on the effects that we can directly observe such as extreme weather events and catastrophic wildfires. Yet most of our planet is covered by ocean where the impacts of climate change have been more difficult to measure. Join Scripps physical oceanography professor Sarah Gille as she describes how oceanographers are using innovative technology to study our warming ocean. See how much and where it is changing, the implications of that warming and where that heat is coming from. Series: "Jeffrey B. Graham Perspectives on Ocean Science Lecture Series" [Science] [Show ID: 35705]

    Reversing a Model of Parkinson's Disease with In Situ Converted Nigral Neurons - Breaking News in Stem Cells August

    Reversing a Model of Parkinson's Disease with In Situ Converted Nigral Neurons - Breaking News in Stem Cells August

    Xiang Dong Fu, PhD shares the findings of his paper published in the June 24, 2020 issue of Nature. By investigating a strategy to directly convert astrocytes to dopaminergic (DA) neurons in the substantia nigra, the research shows a potentially powerful and clinically feasible approach to treating neurodegeneration by replacing lost neurons.

    Oceans Out of Breath: Oxygen Minimum Zones in a Warming Climate

    Oceans Out of Breath: Oxygen Minimum Zones in a Warming Climate

    Join Scripps climate scientist Yassir Eddebbar for an exploration of the oceans interior and a fascinating phenomenon oxygen minimum zones (OMZs). With a focus on Yassirs work in the tropical Pacific, learn what causes OMZs, how they are likely to change in response to climate change, and their potential to impact marine ecosystems and fisheries as climate warms.

    Recharge Net Metering (ReNeM)

    Recharge Net Metering (ReNeM)

    Recharge Net Metering (ReNeM) is a novel incentive program that encourages individual efforts to use excess surface water to improve groundwater supply and quality. ReNeM engages agencies, researchers, and regional stakeholders in collaboration towards common sustainability goals. A ReNeMe pilot program was launched in the Pajaro Valley, Central Coastal California. This short video describes the ReNeM program, how it is run, and the benefits it may provide.
