Dr. Garfinkel managers the EMBO Science Policy Programme, which was established in 2011 to examine concerns emerging from advances in scientific research, with an emphasis on the life sciences in Europe. We are focused on the governance of new technologies for advancing science, and the implications of the use of these new technologies for the public. Our major areas of interest are biotechnology and genomic technologies; research integrity; and scientific publishing with respect to open access, the usability of data underlying publications, and the reproducibility of the scientific literature.
