About the speakers:

Harriet Zuckerman is professor emerita of Columbia University and a highly influential sociologist of science. Her comprehensive work includes studies on the scientific elite, gender and age disparities, education and careers in science. She is also a long-time collaborator of Robert K. Merton and the (belated) co-author of „The Matthew Effect in Science“.

John Ioannidis is professor of medicine and one of the most prominent advocats for the improvement of quality in biomedical research. As Einstein BIH Visiting Fellow, he recently opened the Meta-Research Innovation Center Berlin (MetricBerlin).

Steven Shapin is professor for the history of science at Harvard University, was awarded the Erasmus Prize for his book Leviathan and the Air-Pump: Hobbes, Boyle, and the Experimental Life in 2005, and received the prestigious George Sarton Medal of the History of Science Society for career contributions to the field in 2014. A recurrent topic in his work has been the role of trust in science and research.
