First-Author Story is a platform to read and listen the story of the hardworking first authors. It’s an initiative towards helping and motivating the junior researchers as well as sharing the layman summary which is understandable by all class of the society. It will help in spreading the scientific findings across the society, thus lead to more collaboration and technology translation.

It’s started by the students of IIT Bombay and alumni from all over the world. This First-Author Story program is hosted by the experts from the different domains and have potential to represent your story in a very interactive and productive way to a layman.

Today is a requirement of scientific findings to be very interactive for engaging the common people and connecting the dots of technology translation. It is the responsibility of scientific community to work towards it. Therefore, this platform represents the work of the first authors in a layman language and interactive way to be understood by maximum people.

Our team includes Deepak Chauhan, Rajendra Kumar, Amit Sharma, Rajendra Prasad and Nishant Jain and other prominent researchers from different fields.

To enjoy the science it should be enjoyed by the audience. Every year more than two million research papers published but only one percent of it is translated, why ??Because we are not entertaining them.
