Story of human regeneration wins international physics journalism prize
Date:1/14/2014

This year's IOP-STFC Physics Journalism Prize has been awarded to Cynthia Graber for her feature 'Electric Shock: Could electricity be the key to unlocking human regeneration?, published at MATTER.

In the award-winning article, Cynthia, a freelance print and radio journalist based in Massachusetts, investigates the work of Professor Michael Levin, the Director of Tufts Center for Regenerative and Developmental Biology, to improve our understanding of the role electricity plays in regenerating living cells.

The judges of this year's prize were unanimous in their decision to award the prize to Cynthia, highlighting and praising Cynthia's ability to bring the intrigue of Professor Levin's work to life while still accurately portraying the scientific process.

The judges were particularly delighted to be awarding the prize designed to inspire the next generation of physicists by encouraging journalists to grapple with often complex topics and help spread excitement about the subject for an article which highlights the inter-disciplinary nature of physics research.

Professor Dame Athene Donald, an honorary fellow of the Institute of Physics (IOP), Professor of Experimental Physics at the University of Cambridge and one of the prize's judges, said, "It was a joy to read this intriguing article by Cynthia and it was good to see the winning entry demonstrate such an interesting example from the breadth of issues for which physics is so pertinent.

"Too often physics is thought of as quite a narrow, self-contained subject, instead of as a way of thinking that underpins many other disciplines."

Professor Donald was joined on the judging panel by the editor of HE, Alison Goddard, Martin Ince from the Association of British Science Writers, the Chief Executive of the British Science Association, Imran Khan, and the Head of Communications from the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), Terry O'Conno
