A (Lab)Step Towards Reproducible Science


The reproducibility crisis is holding back science. London-based Labstep, a start-up out of Oxford University, think that their tool can help make science more open and reproducible. That claim has now been given some concrete evidence with the announcement that the research contingent of the MRC Unit The Gambia at LSHTM will be trialling Labstep across their Banjul-based facility.

Researchers have identified a mechanism by which brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) can suppress GABAergic transmission in hippocampus. In this article, Dr. Rajamani Selvam explains how he and his team achieved these results, and their potential impact on the treatment of neurological disease.
