Bridging the Gap: From Lab to Life

Hello, science enthusiasts and curious minds! I’m excited to share with you the journey and purpose behind This Week in Science, a project born from our passion for implementation science and our dedication to making science accessible to everyone.

Why “This Week in Science”?

Have you ever wondered why it takes so long for scientific discoveries to become part of our daily lives? Despite billions being spent on research, there’s a big gap between what scientists discover and what actually makes it into practice. This gap isn’t just about time; it’s about understanding and applying these findings in real-world scenarios.

That’s where This Week in Science comes in. Our goal is to take these complex scientific studies and break them down into easy-to-understand, engaging content. We’re here to make science not just accessible, but fun and relevant to your daily life.

Our Journey in Implementation Science

My co-founders and I have spent years studying how scientific discoveries are disseminated and implemented in practice. This field, known as implementation science, looks at the methods to promote the systematic uptake of research findings into routine practice.

We’ve noticed a recurring theme: many incredible scientific findings never see the light of day outside academic circles. This isn’t just a waste of resources; it’s a missed opportunity to improve lives and make informed decisions based on the latest science.

Making Science Fun and Accessible

We believe that science should be for everyone, not just those in the academic world. Our content is designed to be understood by anyone with a high school education. We use simple language, engaging visuals, and real-world examples to bring science to life.

This Week in Science is more than just a platform; it’s a movement to democratize science. We’re here to take you on a journey through the latest scientific discoveries, explaining them in a way that is both entertaining and informative.
