Science Communication

Communication is a critical part of the scientific process: It is how scientists share their discoveries with each other and non-scientists alike. Science communication helps us better understand ourselves, each other and the world in which we live. The landscape of science communication is changing, and scientists and science communicators face new challenges in reaching and engaging varied audiences. Our faculty pursue research aimed at understanding these challenges. We also explore how science communication in its various forms shapes perceptions of important issues in science and health.
