Graduate students create new science blog

Penn State College of Medicine graduate students recently launched a new blog called Lions Talk Science. According to the students, the purpose of the blog is fourfold: to increase public understanding of biomedical research going on at Penn State College of Medicine; to give a glimpse into a day in the life of a scientist—beyond the “nerdy” pop culture images people are accustomed to seeing; to educate prospective students and the community about what graduate school is; and to dispel bad science journalism by having scientists directly explain their findings to the readers.

The blog will feature articles relating to biomedical sciences as well as fascinating scientific experiment findings (without the jargon), and pictures of the students in the laboratories. Visit the blog at: med.psu.edu/lions-talk-science.
