Sense about Science

We’ve changed many debates about science and evidence over the past 15 years by involving the public and researchers in challenging misleading claims; we started and lead the AllTrials campaign for all clinical trials to be registered and reported; we review the transparency of government’s use of evidence each year and run the Ask for Evidence public campaign. We help people use scientific questioning to navigate debates, from forensic genetics to radiation risks.

Founded 2002
