The 2018 lineup of speakers will explore some of the most fascinating subjects in science today including the historical origins of the U. opioid crisis, understanding how the brain controls parenting behavior, and how “frugal science” can improve science accessibility to better human and planetary health to communities around the world.
The series kicks off June 15, 2018 and will run each Friday through August 10.
All lectures are free and will be held at PM in the MBL’s Lillie Auditorium, 7 MBL Street, Woods Hole and live-streamed at edu.
The Whitman Center Fellows will be supported for up to 10 weeks to pursue research within the MBL’s strategic vision, particularly novel imaging and computation strategies; the comparative evolution, development, neuroscience, cell biology, and regeneration of marine organisms; microbial ecology; and the ecology of coastal systems.“We look forward to the arrival of these outstanding investigators over the coming months and to their integration into the MBL’s unique environment of collaborative and risk-taking research,” said David Mark Welch, Director of the MBL Division of Research.
The MBL provides access to state-of-the-art instrumentation, innovative imaging technology, genome sequencing, model marine and freshwater organisms, and modern laboratory facilities.
– Twelve journalists have been awarded Logan Science Journalism Fellowships from the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL), an international center for biological and environmental research and education and an affiliate of the University of Chicago.
Now in its 32nd year, the Logan Science Journalism Program (SJP) allows established science and health journalists to “step into the shoes of the scientists they cover” through immersion in hands-on research training at the MBL.
They discover the complex ways that added nitrogen alters coastal ecosystems, including their capacity to keep up with sea-level rise and impacts on marine life and coastal food webs.
The fellows present their data at a mini-symposium at the close of the fellowship.This four-day summit at the University of Chicago is co-hosted by the university’s Office of Research, Innovation and National Laboratories and its Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation.In the Biomedical Hands-On Research Course, fellows plunge into the fundamental approaches that underpin current biomedical science.The course’s journalism advisor is Maryn Mc Kenna, science journalist, author, and senior fellow, Schuster Institute for Investigative Journalism at Brandeis University.The Environmental Hands-On Research Course is directed by Anne Giblin, Ph.The Logan Science Journalism Program is sponsored by: George & Helen H. Logan; Friends and Alumni of the Science Journalism Program; Golden Family Foundation; Howard Hughes Medical Institute; Irving Weinstein Foundation, Inc.; Ross Foundation; and the Byron H.
