duncombe@berkeley.edu Our mission is to empower scientists all over the world to build their own research infrastructure. established 2010 post docs, graduate students and undergraduates
collaborators locally, nationally and internationally student group at Berkeley & UCSF why? how? Priming The Pump Improved science infrastructure would enable the training of local scientists our focus Current state of university science in developing countries overcrowded
few physical resources
"brain drain" So, what if we could change this?... "Science education ... is a fundamental prerequisite for democracy and for ensuring sustainable development." Wolrd Conference on Science, 1999 Democratize Science Globally university science education/research Major Gaps to Improve Science Globally:
1. Access to high-quality lab facilities
2. Links with the international scientific community
3. Access to the global stock of up-to-date knowledge
4. Availability of well-trained teachers World Bank and UNESCO report, 2000 current solutins to BRIDGE these gaps: online-journals for different countries equipment donations The Approach Equipment "We are creating a free, online library easy to follow, quality tested guides on how to of build laboratory equipment using locally available supplies." community supported, users: emerging science "regions" university labs, independent labs, high school labs, DIY user labs, ... Magnetic Stirrer ($30) Malcolm Watts Massey University, New Zealand in the works: centrifuge, rotator, spectrophotometer,
electroporator, shaker, vacuum hood,
on-stage microscope incubator, etc... How do we enable others to build this equipment?
