Remote Science in the Era of Social Distancing

By Tim Wesselman on Mar 26, 2020 1:11:50 PM

We’ve all been reminded across various social media feeds how Isaac Newton discovered calculus while “social distancing” during the Great Plague of London or how some of Shakespeare’s greatest works happened while in quarantine. Although the thought of being able to work from home was once a dream we wished for, as Adam Ruben, Ph.D. puts it, science-ing from home isn’t easy.

If juggling your altered home-life alongside the 9-5 work routine wasn’t challenging enough, it’s even more questionable how you can advance your research now that you have limited access to your laboratory, your data and your team.

As we all grapple with the new reality of lockdowns and work-from-home mandates, there’s now a new opportunity re-define what it truly means to do collaborative research and remote science anywhere in the world.
