How Science Exchange & the Reproducibility Initiative Change Citizen Science

Science Exchange and Reproducibility Initiative founder Elizabeth Iorns, Ph.D. discusses how her projects have shaken up the science world and changed what's possible for citizen scientists.

Science Exchange is a network of more than 400 research institutes that enables anyone to order experiments from the world's best labs. Elizabeth has a Ph.D. in Cancer Biology from the Institute of Cancer Research in London, and a Post Doctorate in Cancer Biology from the University of Miami’s Miller School of Medicine. She has received a range of honors, including the 2012 Kauffman Foundation Emerging Entrepreneur Award, Nature Magazine’s ‘Ten People Who Mattered in 2012’, and is a graduate of the Y Combinator Summer 2011 program. Based on her own experiences as a young investigator seeking access to technical expertise, Dr. Iorns co-founded Science Exchange. In 2012, after recognizing the need to create a positive incentive system that rewards independent validation of results, she created the Reproducibility Initiative.
