iBiology's mission is to convey, in the form of open-access free videos, the excitement of modern biology and the process by which scientific discoveries are made. Our aim is to let you meet the leading scientists in biology, so that you can find out how they think about scientific questions and conduct their research, and can get a sense of their personalities, opinions, and perspectives. We are innovating professional development of graduate students and postdocs through a series of courses that address experimental planning, design, and communication. Through our existing video content and a far reaching project seeking to reimagine an introductory biology textbook, we also endeavor to support educators who want to incorporate materials that illustrate the process and practice of science into their curriculum. We are increasingly producing content for the general public that highlights the spirit of scientific discovery, expands the notion of "who is a scientist," and explains key breakthroughs and concepts. This project is made possible by the good will of many biologists who are committed to making their work broadly accessible and to conveying the excitement of biology to a worldwide audience.   https://www.ibiology.org/
