Harvard Science

The positive impact of scientific research on our community, our country, and the world is impossible to overstate.

Scientists and engineers at Harvard collaborate with their colleagues throughout the world to generate new knowledge, alleviate suffering, develop solutions for societal and environmental challenges, and promote evidence-based policy by engaging with community and government leaders.

Here, you'll find stories about people who have transformed the spark of an idea into new understanding, and found unexpected ways to solve old problems. You'll also find links to resources that we hope will inspire you to write your own science story.
