The road to modern medicine and research was not always paved with respect for life, liberty, or property. The purpose of OurSTEMstory is to educate both current and future scientists, as well as the public on research ethics. Each semester OurSTEMstory hosts a keynote speaker connecting the audience with true science stories illustrating how research and social ethics have been violated.

The series is not just about listening, but also an enriching experience - guiding the audience in deep analysis and conversation on the historical context and current status of these violations. "OurSTEMstory," is designed to raise awareness about the contributions of underrepresented groups in STEM, Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Modern medicine and society have benefitted from the consensual and nonconsensual contributions of underrepresented groups to STEM, and we want to highlight their stories while also acknowledging any unethical missteps taken in the name of advancing research and knowledge.
