No-Budget Science is a regular meeting created at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro and today adopts the hackathon format. The events promote discussions and training on biomedical science projects that can be carried out cost-effectively and without bench-top experiments – hence the name “no-budget” and the slogan “a laptop in your hand and an idea in your head”.
ReproducibiliTea is an international initiative formed with the aim of discussing different issues, articles and ideas on how to improve science. The journal club ReproducibiliTea Brasil is the first branch of the project in South America, with discussions always online and in Portuguese, to integrate researchers and students from all over Brazil and Brazilians around the world.
THE Brazilian Reproducibility Initiative Systematic review and meta-Analysis is a collaborative network of 30+ scientists with experience in conducting meta-analyses with pre-clinical research data. The aim is to play an active role in the development of systematic reviews and meta-analyses within the scope of basic biomedical research in Brazil.
