One of the research and training resources we help fund is iBiology , a collection of high-quality, free online videos of scientists talking about their research, career paths and related topics. The project, which also receives support from the National Science Foundation and other organizations, produces material that is relevant to those at a range of educational and career levels, especially undergraduate students, graduate students and postdocs.
When Ron Vale started the iBiology project in 2006, his goal was to give people around the world broader access to research seminars. Since then, the scope has expanded. The collection now includes 350 videos that fall into three main categories:
- iBioseminars : Lectures from leading scientists talking about their research in a variety of fields, from biophysics to neuroscience.
- iBioMagazine : Short talks covering professional development, career advice, diversity in science and other topics.
- iBioEducation : Teaching resources that promote active learning and support science education in the classroom.
iBiology also hosts Q&A sessions with scientists that you can join live or watch later.
You can browse the collection by topic or search by keyword(s) as well as subscribe to an e-newsletter . There are also a number of ways to contribute to the project . If you would like to volunteer as a speaker or suggest another speaker or topic, e-mail the iBiology team.
