Advancing Biomedical Research with Academic Research and Public Creativity
Organizer: Danielle Daee - National Institutes of Health
Historically, incorporating citizen science methodologies into biomedical research has been challenging for a variety of reasons. Rather than highlight the challenges faced in biomedical citizen science projects, this panel will focus on the successes and high points. Several recent collaborations between citizen scientists and biomedical researchers have added to the growing evidence that citizen scientists can make valuable contributions within the biomedical framework and participate, not just as subjects of the research or advisors to the research, but also as partners in the research process itself. In this panel, we will highlight biomedical research projects that have utilized successful citizen science approaches to make unique and key contributions to the biomedical research efforts.
