How Academia and Academic Publishing are Hindering Scientific Innovation

The following is a user-submitted post by Marcus Haber

There is a very interesting document written byElizabeth Dzeng on the website Kings Review, an online magazine published at King’s College, Cambridge

Its an interview by Dzeng, a PhD candidate in the field of medicine, with Sydney Brenner, a professor of Genetic medicine at the University of Cambridge and Nobel Laureate in Physiology or Medicine in 2002.

Dr. Brenner speaks about how it was possible for his team to unlock the genetic code and a critical commentary on why our current scientific research environment makes this kind of breakthrough unlikely today.

Some quotes:

What people don't realize is that at the beginning, it was just a handful of people who saw the light, if I can put it that way. So it was like belonging to an evangelical sect, because there were so few of us, and all the others sort of thought that there was something wrong with us.
I think peer review is hindering science. In fact, I think it has become a completely corrupt system.  . . ."

Reminded me of LENR somehow…
