Funding agencies and societies love novel approaches to science communication. Here is some expert advice on how to grab their attention.
In the penultimate episode of this six-part series about science communication, dermatologist and immunologist Muzlifah Haniffa tells Pakinam Amer how art and poetry inspired her 2016 exhibition Inside Skin following a meeting with Linda Anderson, a professor of English and American literature at Newcastle University, UK.
Carla Ross, who leads the public engagement team at UK funder Wellcome, describes its 25 Trailblazers initiative to showcase excellence in science communication.
Trailblazer finalist Raphaela Kaisler tells Amer how she and colleagues crowdsourced potential research questions around child mental health in Austria.
And Gail Cardew, director of science and education at the Royal Institution of Great Britain, offers advice on how to set up public engagement programmes.
Finally, Joshua Chu-Tan recounts how he distilled his PhD research into 180 seconds as part of the Three Minute Thesis programme, and raised funds for his lab by running blindfold to highlight age-related macular degeneration, his research focus at the Australian National University in Canberra, where he is now a postdoctoral fellow and lecturer.
In this episode, we are joined by Mary Gibbs, a Data Scientist at Mosaic Data Science.
Although Mary’s data journey is in biological sciences, she is able to build, train, and deploy any Data Science solution or Machine Learning application no matter the domain. From the initial meeting with the client all the way to the final product, Mary breaks down her process of developing an appropriate solution given a client’s domain and technical constraints. Finally, she gives her advice to anyone interested in or just starting their own data journey, where she emphasizes the importance of data science projects on the side to gain experience rather than relying on online courses, boot camps, and degrees.

Two researchers with disabilities describe an ‘ableist’ culture in academia, a system designed for fully fit and healthy people that does little to account for those who fall outside those parameters. This culture can sideline scientists with disabilities, chronic illnesses, neurological or mental health problems. As a result many choose not to disclose their conditions for fear of being stigmatised.
This episode is part of Science diversified, a seven-part podcast series exploring how having a more diverse range of researchers ultimately benefits not only the scientific enterprise, but also the wider world.
