Mission Statement

Our mission is to be the touchstone for a fundamental change in the way we work together to 'do' science. Our goal is to bring together the ideas, people, and resources alongside new trends in workplace practices to bring out the best in science. By acting as a clearinghouse for issues and concerns, as well as a catalyst for potential solutions, we are connecting the passionate voices in science with one another to create a shared vision for the future.


Reimagine Science believes the current culture of science creates an invisible cost in loss of productivity, slower rates of discovery, and 'wasting assets,’ including human capital.

We believe that while scientific research in the United States is arguably in a Golden Era, the less promising reality is that the culture and structures of science fail to fulfill the true potential of invested time, money and individual contributions.

We are committed to creating a shift in the culture of science - by deepening its roots in creativity, collaboration, and excited exploration; and by finding new organizational systems and tools that will more effectively support science, scientists, and our contribution to society.

By having the conversations with the people that will make a difference we will transform what is possible both for people who are currently working in the field of science and for those that are interested in studying to become scientists.

We will impact the experience of learning science, the experience of teaching science and the experience of doing science.

I found the Yamana organization almost a year ago and have been working with them ever since. They are a great group of people who are passionate about the mission and vision of their organization. The team is highly supportive of each other and welcomes new and challenging ideas to accomplish their goals. The volunteer activities have helped me maintain and sharpen my business skills through the projects that it provides. I am very happy that I am able to work with this group and would highly recommend them as a place to volunteer for challenging yet fun work!
