Citizen Science, aka Community Science, can refer to any project where non-scientists are providing assistance of some kind to a science project.  Well-known citizen science projects include eBird, the Cell Slider Project, Zooinverse, and the Smithsonian Digital Volunteers Transcription Center.  The mission of the Citizen Science for Ovarian Cancer project is to raise awareness of under-studied aspects of ovarian cancer with the hope of connecting with researchers and/or foundations and inspiring them to embark on research projects to address these looming questions.
