Have you ever tried to read a published scientific paper?

If you have, I feel for you. It was probably not an amazing experience given the suffocating amount of jargon and the dry language they use.

If you haven’t, I also feel for you. Knowing the newest science and learning a cool new thing that no one knew before is awesome!

The SimpleBiologist was created to take the boring, difficult, and tedious task of parsing through papers and instead make the science come alive! I give papers context, talk about where they fit in the world, make fun videos, make analogies, and overall let you experience the joy of knowing about what’s going on at the cutting edge of biology research!

What I don’t do is sensationalize. I give you the truth about what the researchers did and tell you where they’re going next. It is 100% biology, just simpler.



The SimpleBiologist is run by Kate Bredbenner, a graduate student at the Rockefeller University. Check her out on Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and even LinkedIn if you’re feeling professional. You can also find her in person at a variety of science outreach events throughout New York with KnowScience, the BioBus, and outreach at Rockefeller University.
