Los Angeles Times writer wins Wistar Institute Science Journalism Award
Date:4/21/2008

Rowe received the honorable mention for three articles that are part of an ongoing series on male sexuality: Flight of the Spermatozoon, Are We Not Boys", and Sex on the Brain. The judges lauded Rowes delightful, yet scientifically grounded, exploration of his topic. They complimented his vivid and lively writing style and the appropriateness of his articles for his audience.

Rowe, 41, a senior editor at Playboy, has been with the magazine since 1994. His chief responsibility is responding to questions asked of the Playboy Advisor about sexuality, health, and other topics of interest. Researching responses often requires him to interview a scientist or digest the latest biomedical research. He was inspired to write the series after seeing the tremendous strides that scientists have made in the past decade in the area of human sexuality.

Flight of the Spermatozoon, the first article in the series, can be viewed at https://caspar.wistar.upenn.edu/ServerPages/journal/SJAHonorable_Rowe.pdf.

The six members of the 2008 judging committee were: Deborah Blum (co-chair), professor of journalism, University of Wisconsin-Madison, and a 1992 Pulitzer Prize winner; Joe Palca (co-chair), senior science correspondent for National Public Radio; Sue Goetinck Ambrose, science writer for The Dallas Morning News and a 2004 winner of the award; Robin Marantz Henig, freelance journalist and contributing writer for The New York Times Magazine; Jon Palfreman, independent documentary film producer; and Nancy Shute, senior writer for U.S. News & World Report. Charles Petit, freelance journalist and head tracker, Knight Science Journalism Tracker was a special nominating judge.
