We've participated in the CIG's annual 'Ethics in science' day. This was to remind us of the core principles we want to follow as scientists and the good lab, data and publishing practices.
The afternoon was filled with interesting lectures by guests from UNIL and CHUV and also the keyonte address by Dr. Elisabeth Bik - the specialist in identifying data manipulation in scientific papers. We were stunned how prevalent the scientific misconduct is and how little is done to prevent it. We've also discussed how recent technology developemnts, such as artificial intelligence, can at the same time help fighting the bad practices, but also reinforce them.
This was an enriching day and we are sure this experience will make us better scientists. Already looking forward to the meeting next year!
