ABOUT THIS EPISODE
What makes an innovator in the world of disrupting science? What sort of experiences, behaviours and mindsets prompt people to make change, and guard them against the challenges that changing the status quo inevitably brings?
Those were the questions on our mind for this first episode of our ‘Innovator Stories’ mini-series on the Science: Disrupt podcast.
Over the next 5 episodes of Science: Disrupt, you'll hear from those at the coal face, enacting change within science – whether that’s building new products, changing behaviour in the lab or simply being more vocal in the scientific community, we wanted to bring to the fore some of the ‘behind the scenes’ insights into what makes innovation happen.
This episode features:
- Abi Sawyer, Digital Editor of Biotechniques
- Bethan Wolfenden, Co-Founder BentoBio
- Kristin Ellis, Director of Strategic Initiatives at Opentrons
- Alok Tayi, Co-Founder of Tetrascience
The opportunity in modernising the lab is huge, if these 4 are anything to go by, and in this episode we dive into the nitty gritty of why it needs done now, and how best to go about changing an old, sometimes slow-moving, industry which might not always be up for change.
