About Science in Vancouver

As scientists ourselves, we know that science is accelerated by collaboration and connection, but  that the busy, demanding lifestyle of a scientist makes this challenging. Thus, we saw the need for a central resource that connects local scientists, provides them with a platform to share their ideas, and helps them stay current with the news, events, and jobs within their local scientific community. This inspired us to launch Science in the City in our hometown of Vancouver, Canada in 2017.

Science in Vancouver is your complete source for all the life science news and events happening in your city. The Science in Vancouver website and weekly newsletter provide researchers and medical professionals with breaking news, in-depth articles, and insightful commentary on what is happening around them. By supplying scientists with a resource for the local news and events that affect them, Science in Vancouver fosters learning and collaboration within scientific communities, ultimately supporting the advancement of science and medicine.

What’s Next for Science in the City?

Vancouver is our hometown, so it made sense to launch this exciting initiative in our own backyard. But we’re only getting started! We’ve launched Science in the City in Seattle and Boston, and we’re currently working on bringing Science in the City to several more scientific communities across North America and Europe!

We are passionate about science communication, and our goal is to serve as a global information hub for local communities of life scientists in academia, industry, and medicine, driving the advancement of scientific discovery by fostering growth and engagement among local scientific communities.
