Science Progressive Community - sharing visibility

Progressive Community logo.

The community of people active in science progressive topics mostly consists of a large number of individuals and small teams who struggle for visibility. As science advocates, Science for Progress wants to help giving these activities a larger audience.

This is why we offer this platform to people of the community! You will find event announcements, introductions, and opinion pieces on diverse science progressivist topics!

In this episode, Bart and I invited Ph.D. candidate Daniela Buchwald from the German Primate Center. We compare how the University of Göttingen and the German Primate Center responded to the impending shutdown of most research activities – with a focus on how the animals are being cared for.

The conversation was recorded on Tuesday, March 17, just after the German local government began to take serious action to reduce public life in order to slow the spread of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Remember, that when we talk about news reaching us on Monday, we mean “yesterday” at the time of recording.

Dennis’s guest for this episode is David Spencer, a researcher in plant physiology and phytopathology in Germany. In his Ph.D., David uses genetic engineering to fortify soybeans against fungal infection. They explain why we need more resilient crops fast, why this would be great for the environment, and how genetic engineering can help achieve this.

The episode complements the previous one (extended throwback with Hélène Pidon) which focused on explaining different breeding methods and how artificially induced mutations compare to naturally occurring ones.

USA is trying to get their hands on a coronavirus vaccine that is being developed in Germany.

“The exclusive sale of a possible vaccine to the USA must be prevented by all means. Capitalism has limits.”

The state is on lockdown but the Uni is telling grad students they are welcome to go to lab and continue their research??!!!!! 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤯🤯🤯

I find it a bit misled to blame scientists for not "persuading" politicians to do their jobs. https://t.co/LKNCu0BZVN

Stepping back for a moment, and since scientists and #publichealth experts absolutely knew a virus would come, is the #COVID-19 pandemic a massive #scicomm fail?

Why aren't scientists more persuasive?
