Process Biology: Final Conference of the ERC Project ‘A Process Ontology for Contemporary Biology’ Prof John Dupre

The ERC-funded project ‘A Process Ontology for Contemporary Biology’ (2013-2018) has sought to rethink central issues in the philosophy of biology by elaborating an ontology for biology that takes full account of the processual nature of living systems. The goal has been to develop a concept of process adequate for addressing the multiple levels of interacting processes at different time scales characteristic of living systems. All biological entities can be analysed as stabilised processes relative to an appropriate time scale, and this conception provides a better understanding of familiar biological pluralisms (about genes, organisms, species, etc..) in terms of different ways in which distinct scientific practices intersect with biological processes. A process perspective has been used to shed light on a number of traditional philosophical problems, including individuation, classification, persistence, explanation, essentialism, and reductionism. It has also addressed the consequences of a process perspective for particular areas of contemporary biological and biomedical research. This final conference will present the main findings of the project and explore the broader consequences of a process ontology for biology, as well as suggest further avenues of future research in the philosophy of biology and metaphysics.

Increasing value and reducing waste in implementation research

Implementation research is the scientific study of the determinants, processes and outcomes of implementation. Whilst there is an increasing body of implementation research, we are not advancing knowledge as efficiently as we could. There is considerable waste in implementation research (as in all other areas of health research) particularly due to failures to ask the right research questions, failures to use current available evidence when planning future research and failures to maximise the informativeness of syntheses of implementation programs. The seminar will discuss these issues and offer suggestions to enhance value and reduce waste. Full details

Seeing the forest and the trees - getting more value out of systematic reviews of complex interventions

Systematic reviews and meta-analyses of complex interventions raise conceptual and methodological challenges that traditional systematic review and meta-analysis approaches fail to address. We have undertaken a series of systematic reviews of diabetes quality improvement interventions (published in JAMA 2006 (50 trials), Lancet 2012 (142 trials), Cochrane Library in preparation (278 trials)). To enhance the value of the systematic review, we have explored procedural (contacting authors) and statistical (Bayesian hierarchical multivariate analyses) innovations to extract more information for decision makers planning diabetes quality improvement activities.

Enhancing the portability of public health intervention review evidence for localised decision making

This lecture will focus on the generalisability of meta-analytic evidence and the types of knowledge claims that can be made from meta-analyses of public health interventions. It begins through questioning the claims made by some meta-analysts that the synthesis of effect sizes from interventions carried out across different areas is enough to warrant claims around the generalisability of this evidence. It will explore some of the most frequently encountered ways in which meta-analysts explore the differential impacts of the intervention across settings in investigating generalisability, and will highlight the ways in which current practice is inadequate. The lecture intends to present a framework for better use of existing configurative approaches in meta-analysis, and to demonstrate how a more nuanced treatment of context in reviews of public health interventions can be achieved through greater engagement with existing large sources of secondary data.
