WHAT IS HERE FOR YOU?
You will learn here all you ever wanted to know about science, research, and modern scientists. Dr.M aims to teach everyone, and does not fear to reveal both what is good and what needs to be changed. It is surprising to realize that research in university laboratories now is so distorted and decayed that science even could be dying. If the causes and consequences of the major problems in today’s scientific research are identified, then therapy must follow so that science will once again be wonderful for all people. Dr.M aims to to educate by explaining what is going on and proposing how to resolve these very serious problems. My goal is simply to get this needed curative effort underway.
WHO IS THIS AUTHOR TO MAKE SUCH PROVOCATIVE STATEMENTS?
Dr.M is a basic scientist with several doctoral degrees, including a Ph.D. from the University of Chicago. He loves doing laboratory research and has performed hands-on experimental studies in biomedical science during over 35 years as a member of the faculty at 3 academic institutions and one government laboratory center in the USA. Although tenured and receiving several NIH research grants, Dr.M considers himself to be only one of very many ordinary scientists who are dedicated to working on experimental research.
ALL THIS IS FOR EVERYBODY!
The public needs to know about real science, not pseudoscience. If you are a raw beginner or an adult having curiosity without any background, you will find helpful introductory materials here. If you are a science graduate student or Postdoc wondering what is in store for you as a faculty scientist, you will find much here that is not often presented or discussed. Current faculty scientists will discover why their job is so frustrating and unsatisfying, whether they are doing experimental research in biomedicine, chemistry, or physics. Dr.M holds nothing back, and examines the biggest problems faced by modern academic researchers, no matter how shocking or disgusting they are. Since these major issues produce grave consequences for the public and our world, we must start to rescue science and research right now!
I had originally hoped that Comments would be used to ask questions, discuss the posts, state your own viewpoint, or make requests about anything at issue here! I regret that the many thousands of Comments received have evolved to become 99% spam. After one year of this nonsense I have closed all Commenting and will respond to none from now on; those with genuine questions should please try to understand why I must do this.
