Flu Lab is promoting a culture of scientific transparency and collaboration in the influenza ecosystem to enable and accelerate breakthroughs. Investments in this area aim to invigorate influenza research, expand the availability of information, and create opportunities for new insights.
Resurgent Influenza Science Effort (RISE)
Publication bias negatively shapes and limits our understanding of influenza and results in wasted resources, missed insights, and lost time. Flu Lab partners with the Center for Open Science and the Public Library of Science (PLOS) to expand the publication of null and negative research findings. Researchers are invited to submit proposals to the Call for Negative Results, Null results, and Replication of Important Findings. If eligible, proposals may be awarded up to $25,000 to support the research design, manuscript development, and publishing processes.
