Hey - it isn't all psychology that has trouble with replicating studies:

Replication chaos in cancer biology

An eight-year-long effort to replicate key cancer-biology experiments has
found that fewer than half yielded similar results. The Reproducibility
Project: Cancer Biology attempted to replicate experiments from 53
high-impact papers. Ultimately, it managed to tackle only 23, and results
from 5 of those could be fully reproduced
“None of the 193 experiments were described in sufficient detail in the
original paper to enable us to design protocols to repeat the experiments,”
said the authors of the reproducibility effort, and fewer than half of the
original authors were very helpful in untangling things. But critics argue
that one-time replication attempts don’t tell the whole story.
