Basing on the session, it is recommended to develop research-based science communication practices for a variety of audiences–spanning from health professionals to the general public–in the form of exhibitions and web products, and with special attention to the aesthetics of science communication. People interested in medical science communication are well advised to broaden their vision to other domains of science communication studies and practices. There is much to be learned from science communication studies dealing with a wide array of sciences through a variety of media.

When 400 senior European life scientists were asked which complementary skills they would have liked to receive training in earlier in their career, 37% and 33% mentioned public communication and peer-to-peer communication, whereas only 17% and 11% mentioned research ethics and bioethics: On analysis the answers given by the college students on medical science communication before attending the session and after attending the session, there is a significant improvement in understanding the various aspects of ‘HIV/AIDS’.

Basing on the session, it is recommended to develop research-based science communication practices for a variety of audiences–spanning from health professionals to the general public–in the form of exhibitions and web products, and with special attention to the aesthetics of science communication. People interested in medical science communication are well advised to broaden their vision to other domains of science communication studies and practices. There is much to be learned from science communication studies dealing with a wide array of sciences through a variety of media.

When 400 senior European life scientists were asked which complementary skills they would have liked to receive training in earlier in their career, 37% and 33% mentioned public communication and peer-to-peer communication, whereas only 17% and 11% mentioned research ethics and bioethics: On analysis the answers given by the college students on medical science communication before attending the session and after attending the session, there is a significant improvement in understanding the various aspects of ‘HIV/AIDS’.
