Science writing allows us to communicate science to the general public, but we can do more. Science art and other fields are moving us into a new revolution of science communication. Read on for the next frontiers of science communication.
Cells can enter a dormant state called quiescence, and dormant cancer cells are resistant to chemotherapy and other treatments. A team led by UA Cancer Center researcher Guang Yao, PhD, has identified ways to regulate cell dormancy and “wake” these cells from their “slumber” to make them susceptible to cancer treatments.
In part 3 of this series on alternative careers in science, we’ll focus on science communication. From public relations to medical writing, get all the details.
When I started graduate school, I understood the science well, but was struggling to understand how to interpret results. Learning logic through programming helped. Here’s how.

Mental health issues impact my life as a PhD student as well as my future life as a scientist. Let’s talk about the impact these issues have and how we can create a community that fosters scientists who have chronic depression and anxiety.
In science, we fail all the time. But we don’t talk about it nearly as much. Here’s what you need to know about failure in science.
In a previous post, I talked about academia not being designed for people who have depression, anxiety, etc to succeed. I also spent some time talking about imposter syndrome. This particular post is the second in a series about careers other than being a research advisor (PI) or even being a researcher in industry. Part 2 in a 3 part series.
There is a lot of discussion in science right now about diversity (though not nearly enough). I’d like to focus today on, 1) how I define diversity and 2) what diversity does for science.

When I was in film school, I remember one class being asked “Why do we make films?” and hearing many different responses. “But what about the audience?” my film professor asked. Many of the students in the class were baffled. They had never thought about important it was to effectively communicate their vision to the audience.
“Race doesn’t exist.” I remember the first time I heard this. I was in my evolution class in undergrad. My professor pulled up a picture of two subspecies of bird. They looked exactly alike, and my professor mentioned that there is less genetic diversity between humans than between these two identical looking subspecies of bird. Then…
