Future of Science Journalism

This is from an MIT Museum presentation on science journalism. MIT President Dr. Susan Hockfield states that science journalism “is now, and in the decades ahead, absolutely indispensable.” As we confront global warming and health pandemics, science reporting must be sustained, Hockfield says, “in its rightful place, at the top of the profession and in the thick of the national conversation.”

  2. Hi Marie,

    Thanks for including this blog post in your directory of science. I find that many scientists (PhD level) are interested in non-clinical (and non-academic) opportunities in various types of industries that revolve around healthcare.
