One common problem I encountered back in the days when I was working with researchers at an NIH-funded institute was that none of them had the necessary grasp of (a) how to design a robust experiment, and (b) how to perform appropriate mathematical/statistical analyses. It's not clear that this problem is yet being addressed in any of the scientific domains.

Anyone who enjoys my articles here on Medium may be interested in my books Why Democracy Failed and The Praying Ape, both available from Amazon.
