Review and Publication of Scientific Research

02 de octubre de 2013   | Vistas: 3 |   Innovation Research Science Thiel Fellowship

Riley Drake talks about the review process in scientific research (a peer-review system), and how investigators with similar capabilities review other researchers' work. She comments on the importance for scientists to have the right credentials to evaluate the published information in order to ensure that it is legitimate. Drake also shares her opinion on the pros and cons of intellectual property (IP) and innovation, as it is a driving force for scientific research.

As well, Drake shares how her inspiration for studying biology and physics began, and also her experiences doing science and her goal to achieve a greater good: the knowledge or the end of a disease. Finally, she states that people with different abilities and backgrounds should not be academically separated from those considered less extraordinary, as in mixing them together mutual inspiration and the achievement of each one’s potential may be accomplished.
