We are a collection of graduate students at the University of Washington who believe that scientists across disciplines, career stages, and sectors must continue to advocate for the use of science in public policy.

Our studies encompass a wide range of research areas - from ecology, to genetics, to engineering, to digital media. We have applied our common strengths as scientists and our unique qualifications as graduate students in a diverse range of fields to create the tools and materials on this site.

 

We're always looking to expand our network to better serve scientists as they comment on federal regulations.

Join us.
