About this event

In an era where society is relying heavily on science to remain afloat, the challenges and inconsistencies associated with the scientific method are feeling the pressure. Stemming from a reproducibility and collaborative crisis, all the way to the outlet of fake scientific news supplied by media and the historical context of health racial inequalities, science is at a critical breaking point. The lack of scientists in policy, mediocre media portrayal and low cultural diversity are having a negative impact on our work. Is the scientific process broken? Have we reached the point of no return?

In this hour-long free seminar, Dr Rooah Omer, Dr Shruti Patel and Dr Danielle Solomon, authors of “Covid-19 and ethnicity: how the information gap exacerbates inequality” will address these questions in a series of brief talks followed by open discussion. This event is part of the Grand Challenges Seminar Series from the MPLS Doctoral Training Centre at the University of Oxford.
