About scienceupfirst

ScienceUpFirst is a national collective of independent scientists, researchers, health care experts, and science communicators. We share the best available science in creative ways to stop the spread of misinformation.

Right now, we’re focused on the COVID-19 pandemic and vaccines.

The idea for ScienceUpFirst started with Senator Stan Kutcher and Professor Timothy Caulfield in the summer of 2020. Since then, we’ve grown into a funded initiative of the Canadian Association of Science Centres, with dozens of experts from across the country working together to fight misinformation.
