Open Box Science

To drive scientific progress, we believe in rapid dissemination and open availability of scientific ideas and educational material. We actively participate in and contribute to virtual webinars hosted the Open Box Science (OBS), a 501(c)(3) dedicated to promoting open science, facilitating diverse career development, and enhancing science communication skills (disclosure: PI Dr. Huang is a Co-Founder & Chief Unboxer of OBS, he is not compensated by OBS in any way and his involvement with OBS is approved by Mount Sinai).
