In this episode of the podcast, we focus not only on ecological sustainability but also on social equity in science. Together with the CEO of the non-profit organization Seeding Labs, Melissa Wu, we discuss how donating surplus lab equipment impacts the two.

Which types of lab equipment can be donated to the “Instrumental Access” program, and how is it decided who receives it? Can broken lab equipment be given a new life through Seeding Labs? And in which ways have donations via Seeding Labs improved local responses to natural disasters and COVID-19?

Join us on our mission towards more sustainable research as we discuss obstacles and solutions, talk to other caring scientists, and try to figure out how to make scientific research more sustainable. One thing is certain: Mission Sustainable isn't a Mission Impossible!

Your hosts are:

Adriana Wolf Perez, Ph.D., working as a scientist in a biomedical start-up company in Cambridge, UK

Nikoline Borgermann, Ph.D., working as an independent green lab consultant at Ava Sustain in Copenhagen, Denmark

... and both are passionate about the planet and people!
