Martina Blečić is a new project member joining our ThUMB team. Martina is a postdoc researcher that will contribute to ThUMB’s research by exploring how scientific decision-making and dissemination of research results relate to the public understanding of the life sciences. Particularly, by addressing two potential problems with the organization of scientific work into big-science projects: (1) large funds cause extra pressure to produce extraordinary outputs, and (2) research that is basically data-driven, or hypothesis-free, and delivered directly to the public, may be unachievable.
