Biomedical and Health reporting
WOODS HOLE, Mass. – Thirteen 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 31st 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 at the MBL. This year’s program, which gives fellows the choice of a laboratory-based biomedical research course or a field-based environmental research course, will run from May 31 to June 8 in Woods Hole.
In addition, four of the selected journalists were awarded new Chicago Fellowships to spend four days in Chicago interacting with researchers affiliated with The Microbiome Center, a collaboration between the University of Chicago, the MBL, and Argonne National Laboratory.
