Evolutionary Pharmacology is at the Forefront of an Adventure in Crowdfunding


Several weeks ago I highlighted the cinematic skills of a young researcher at Princeton. Ethan Perlstein is an evolutionary pharmacologist - and if the term perplexes you, you're not alone. Perlstein created a fantastic video to provide the public with an educational and understandable explanation of how he spends his time. His commitment to keeping the public informed is part of a greater project: Perlstein aims to be the first entirely crowdsourced research lab in the country. His second short film (below) describes his current Rocket Hub campaign, where over $13K has been raised so far. This week is the FINAL one for this groundbreaking experiment in science and communication - check out the amazing work being done here and support crowdsourced science!
