The Importance of Science Communication

Science is interdisciplinary; important findings typically involve a combination of several fields coming together. Think of the intersection of artificial intelligence and neuroscience: Machine learning is becoming increasingly important to findings within the field of neuroscience and science communication is an important driver of this collaboration. Alternatively, science communication is imperative when introducing innovative and novel research to audiences without a science background. Proper communication of science is what yields comprehensive and robust science policy that impacts public health and plays a role in funding allocations for future research.
