In this episode I had the pleasure of talking to Professor Arturo Casadevall about scientific rigor. Arturo is Distinguished Professor of Microbiology at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, where he leads the graduate program R3: Accuracy, Reproducibility and Accountability in Science. He is one of the authors of the NEJM's recently published clinical trial, which suggests efficacy of convalescent plasma in patients with COVID-19. This subject served as a hook for us to discuss scientific thinking. I hope you enjoy.
