Do you enjoy Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee?

Introducing its brainier brother…Scientists in a $h!tBox Spelling it Out, a new YouTube series for Scientists! 

CEO Alex Szabo takes a drive with Scientists in a beat up old car to shoot the breeze as they spell out their life's scientific work, discoveries, stories from the lab, career highs & lows and what the future holds for Scientists. Getting a ride with Alex in a beat up old car might not sound appealing at first, but its all for a good cause! 


What started out as a small idea to become more involved in the scientific community, just like The Day of Immunology Flashmob, turned into a unique opportunity to bring the stories of our beloved scientists to you, our community... all in the name of charity!
