What does democratizing science/medicine mean? And, how does that look different from what we’re doing right now?

Overview The advent of advanced digital technologies is a feature of our global landscape that could facilitate the democratic distribution of opportunities for scientific exploration, knowledge production, and consumption in ways that were once thought to be impossible. However, the universal human right to participate in science and engineering is an idea that is understated … Read more
