An innovative new way of communicating science research launched this week with Gamify Your PhD, a project from the Wellcome Trust that brings together researchers and games developers to create new games exploring and explaining the latest developments in biomedicine.

The Trust is inviting researchers to share ideas for games based on their PhD work in biomedical science or the medical humanities, and small teams of games developers to turn these ideas into addictive, challenging and educational games. Those selected will partner at a two-day hack in which the games will be created. The best of these will receive funding to develop into a releasable game.

Full details of the Gamify Your PhD competition, which closes on August 12, can be found on the Wellcome Trust web site.
