They speak a universal language, and transcend nationality and geography when talking to each other about their work. Most of all, we believe in young scientists – up-and-coming researchers who are eager to expand their professional circles and used to communicating with friends regardless of distance.
We match U.S. scientist Ambassadors with host institutions in the developing world to share their skills to students and faculty, meet colleagues and share ideas. When they return to their home institutions they will be connectors, painting a picture of labs around the world for their peers and introducing them to others overseas with shared research interests.
More than just knowledge transfer, we hope to provide the spark that leads to new collaborations and a stronger global science community.
