  • Suggest guests to be on the show.

At Invincible Wellbeing, our mission is to prioritize and promote research targeting the biological substrates of suffering. We do this by conducting literature reviews with the aim of publishing them in academic journals and on This offers our research fellows an opportunity to not only use this project as their MSc/PhD thesis project, but to publish and be part of the global open-science effort to elucidate and alleviate the molecular signatures of suffering. arXiv is a journal utilized by researchers at the top of their fields. The work can also be documented in a manner consistent with one's university thesis submission requirements. 


We believe that science is about collaboration. Thus, fellows may interview the world's leading scientists on our podcast airing on Stanford University Radio, providing an excellent opportunity to share research insights that enrich Invincible Wellbeing's publications mission.
