Today’s episode features a conversation with Ewoud Compeer of Oxford University. The interview was conducted by Matthew Ismail, Editor in chief of the Charleston Briefings and Conference Director at the Charleston Conference.
Ewoud Compeer is a Dutch biomedical scientist and immunologist. He’s been doing research in the US, The Netherlands, Australia and now in the UK at the University of Oxford. When studying the immune system, he looks at how the immune cells communicate with one another, and how they communicate so clearly and effectively. He is currently working with fellow colleagues to prove his own science and the societal impact his work is having and also to prove the work of others, aiming for a diverse research environment to create robust data.
Ewoud founded a not-for-profit organization for dissemination of science and scientists between the Netherlands and the UK. He’s also an eLife ambassador advocating for open science around the world. He says now is the perfect time to talk about the reproducibility crisis in science.
