MBL awards journalism fellowships
Date:5/30/2008

Sixteen science writers and editors have been awarded prestigious Science Journalism Fellowships from the MBL (Marine Biological Laboratory), an internationally known biomedical and environmental research and educational center located in the village of Woods Hole, Massachusetts on Cape Cod.

Now in its 23rd year, the MBL's Science Journalism Program allows established science journalists from around the globe to "step into the shoes of the scientists they cover" by immersing themselves in the process of basic biomedical and environmental research.

The fellowship program offers two hands-on courses. The biomedical course provides journalists hands-on science training in Woods Hole during the MBL's famed summer research season, when hundreds of biologists gather at the institution from around the world to conduct research and to teach and learn advanced-level science and research techniques. The polar course gives journalists the unparalled opportunity to travel to MBL field stations in Alaska and Antarctica to be a part of some of today's most cutting-edge ecological research.

This year's MBL Science Journalism Fellows are:
