The Reproducibility Project: Cancer Biology, which set out to replicate 50 studies, will complete with 18.

A major pitfall was that many of the original studies were so vaguely reported that replication became practically impossible. Just process that.…
Expect a lot of hemming & hawing by the cancer bio community over this, & a huge amount of special pleading. But the fact is that failing to get replicability out of the gates casts a long shadow on the field. Hopefully this will prompt leaders w/ vision in that community to act.
It's time for psychologists to help biologists w/ reproducibility
