Biomedical Communications Alumni Association
UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO
Driving impact in science and health through visual communication
Since its inception in 1945, the Master of Science in Biomedical Communications (BMC) program at the University of Toronto is continually evolving in response to the changing nature of science, technology, communication, and our profession. It is one of four accredited master's programs world-wide, and the only one in Canada, that educates students in the visual communication of science, medicine, and health.
As a forward-looking field, BMC alumni are always pushing the envelope in advancing discovery and understanding through the power of visual communication, leveraging educational gaming, augmented reality, UI/UX design, and scientific visualization.
The Biomedical Communications Alumni Association (BMCAA) aims to connect and strengthen the BMC community and drive our industry forward by fostering the sharing of insights and experiences.
From academia to data journalism: Research in non-academic settings
Senior data scientist and developer at The Pudding
Data journalism is a unique example of research methods used outside of the academic context, but resources on entering the field are scarce. This talk will outline Ilia's transition from academia to visual, data-driven storytelling at The Pudding, and provide a primer on how to tell engaging, evidence-based stories outside of the typical scientific setting.
