Hannah, what does ‘Science for Good’ mean to you?
“To me, Science for Good is not only a set of standards in how we conduct research but, how said research should work towards bettering ourselves and our communities. As scientists, it is important to always ensure that the work that we perform is following established rules and guidelines all they while maintaining a high degree of ethics. While the work itself is important, it is equally important to understand the knowledge gained from that research and how it can be used to help others.”
