Science Trends

Your source for the latest science news and education, from climate change to cancer research, we’ve got you covered

Science Trends was founded in July of 2017 as a platform to give scientists a voice to share the latest scientific discoveries. We provide an avenue for scientists in academia and industry to connect with more than half a million science-minded people. To date, we’ve worked with thousands of scientists from across the world to share their work on everything from artificial intelligence to cancer research.

 
Science Trends was started by Trevor Nace, a Ph.D. geologist eager to explore the world and communicate science to new and unexpected audiences. For nearly 3 years he’s written about everything from earthquakes to climate change as he covers earth and environmental science on Forbes, connecting with over 20 million people. Through his experience in science communication, he became increasingly aware and motivated to help scientists around the globe share their work and advocate for science.
 
Operating costs for Science Trends are funded by both advertising and investments from the founder, Trevor Nace. We are not backed by institutional investors, banks, or other private or public entities. This allows us to control our business model in connecting scientists and their research with the world.

Trevor Nace, the founder of Science Trends is a PhD scientist and has been in science journalism for many years, building communities around the latest scientific research and breakthroughs. He has written hundreds of articles on science topics, which have been read tens of millions of times.
