F3: SimpleB.io: An online tool and community for communicating biology and biomedical science in plain language

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Biological and biomedical sciences, including latest breaking research, are closely followed by non-experts and the general public owing to their direct impact on health and wellbeing. However, scientific papers and other technical discourses that describe this scientific research are couched in jargon that is inaccessible to non-experts. Similar challenges arise for healthcare professionals in light of their need to regularly communicate medical situations and concepts to patients and their families. We are developing SimpleB.io – http://simpleb.io – an online tool to break down these barriers in making biological/biomedical science and research findings broadly-accessible by: 1) providing a feature-rich text-editor that enables experts to simplify dense technical/scientific text, and 2) building a community of researchers, instructors, students, and the general public around science communication and learning.
