Introduction by Donna Mekis, past president, UC Santa Cruz Alumni Council
Richard Harris in conversation with Erika Check Hayden, director, UC Santa Cruz Science Communication Program

"American taxpayers spend $30 billion annually funding biomedical research. By some estimates, half of the results from these studies can't be replicated elsewhere — the science is simply wrong. Science journalist Richard Harris reveals these urgent issues with vivid anecdotes, personal stories and interviews with the nation's top biomedical researchers."
