Hi All

Just a note that Balliol is running an excellent seminar series on
Leveraging Social Media to Raise Public Understanding of Health Research.
Including Ben Goldacre, Iain Chalmers and a host of great speakers with
many topics touching on aspects of open science and science communication.


Ben Goldacre's talk is on 27th Nov and will probably include points from
his new book Bad Pharma, which will be a great primer for our Oxford Open
Science meeting on open clinical trial data on 28th Nov.

*Wed 28 Nov: The Ethics and Practicalities of Open Clinical Trial Data
Oxford e-Research Centre, 7 Keble Road)

Lack of access to clinical trial data is a major problem for the medical
and research community, which has sparked several recent high profile
editorials and a new book by Ben Goldacre 'Bad Pharma'. We discuss the
situation as it stands and how to increase the availability of clinical
trial data for independent analysis and scrutiny.
