Message Lab Media is a science communications agency with deep expertise serving all types of science and research organizations. We help organizations communicate what they do and why it’s important, in ways that resonate with the people they want to reach.

Our science writers and editors are passionate about explaining science and telling stories that bring it to life. Organizations choose us because of our:
We’ve spent more than a decade working with top science and healthcare organizations and helping them communicate their work in ways that raise awareness and increase donations.
Everyone on our team has a background in content marketing and/or journalism, coupled with years of science and healthcare writing experience. We’ve interviewed thousands of researchers, research participants and donors. Our writers know how to ask questions that capture the science and its impact, so we can translate it into stories and campaigns that resonate with lay audiences – or whomever you’re trying to reach.
Strategy is at the core of everything we do. We define or understand the goal of every project and each piece of content. Then we shape it to serve your organization’s mission, vision and values.
You’ll work directly with our leadership team, and have our full attention from early brainstorming to final review. Our experienced project managers make the research, writing and editing process seamless to keep projects on time and on budget.
We work with our clients for years, becoming an extension of their team and building close relationships with their leaders, researchers and fundraisers. This helps us establish trust with your stakeholders, become experts in your core science and research areas, and quickly deliver fresh ideas.
We support organizations through all stages of science content creation. We can also partner with foundations and fundraising teams through our Philanthropy Communications Program, to use strategic science communication to help your organization reach more donors and inspire them to give.
Our services include:
Some organizations come to us with concrete goals and a detailed strategy. Others have an idea in mind, and partner with us to build a content marketing strategy that defines:
Science is complicated. Donors may not understand how giving to your organization makes an impact. Research participants need to know what they’re signing up for and how their contributions can make a difference. Your community may not know how your research improves the world they live in. Science writing and communications can bridge this gap and serve your organization by:
Providing clear explanations and compelling stories about what you do and why it matters.
Raising awareness of your work by getting your name out there through search and social media.
Introducing your work to potential donors and strengthening your relationships with existing donors.
