I am an independent science journalist, with around 13 years of biomedical research experience in molecular cell biology, stem cells and cancer research.
The usual science journalism restricts itself to repeating after the cues given by scientific elite and leading research institutions. What we mostly read in the science news, is the voice of power and money. The climate of fear is omnipresent in science: bad science is very rarely exposed in the open, fraud and ethics breach are routinely covered up, while accusations and criticisms are raised only behind closed doors and are often unfairly or even wrongfully assigned. There are many good and honest scientists out there, but they have no voice. My site is for them.
Therefore, one goal of my site is to give voice to such concerned scientists who would normally never dare to speak out their critique, for fear of their influential colleagues. Some of these voices are named, some names are confidential. You can be one of them, just contact me below.
My conference presentations are available for you to browse and re-use at Slideshare. Some of my seminars are available as videos on YouTube. My academic CV and original research publications are listed on ORCID. Finally, I am also a cartoonist, please visit my Facebook page Science Cartoons.
I welcome your opinions, suggestions and stories for my future journalistic investigations. Confidentiality guaranteed! Please leave a functional email address where I can reach you, if you want me to follow up on information you share.
Yours, Leonid Schneider

Önder Metin had a rogue PhD student whom he trusted “to ensure their academic growth”. But “mistakes were made by mistake”, conclusions are never affected. Yet those who still complain, will pay dearly.

“I felt I had a lot to give the world. Getting my first at university and doing so well in research was an antidote. Underneath, though, there is part of me that feels maybe one day someone will discover that I am stupid.” – Tony “Blue Peter” Hollander
Exceptional times call for exceptional men. In Israel, men of science boldly step forward to face the coronavirus, armed with miracle cures. Pandemic, like a good war, is always good for business.
After chloroquine and ivermectin, another repurposed drug enters the COVID-19 circus arena: colchicine. But why not combining it with licorice?
Ivermectin is the new hydroxychloroquine. But who is its new Raoult? What if the cast of the 2021 sequel will remain otherwise the same?

“Un dato su tutti era evidente nella pandemia: i bambini non si ammalavano o avevano sintomi lievi. La lattoferrina è una proteina con proprietà antivirali, abbiamo deciso di trattare i pazienti Covid positivi all’esordio della malattia e i pazienti asintomatici. Incredibilmente, dopo dieci giorni dalla terapia, osservavamo la scomparsa dei sintomi e poi ottenevamo la negativizzazione del tampone”, Elena Campione, professoressa.
The marriage of love between Didier Raoult and Vovka Zelenko is now official. It was ordained by the International Society for Microbial Chemotherapy. No COVID-19 restrictions apply, and there’s enough chloroquine for everyone.
Macchiarini’s victim Paloma Cabeza speaks out again, fearing she doesn’t have much time left. She appeals to the Swedish prosecutor for justice in the deadly trachea transplant scandal.
