Science Outside the Lab

Science Outside the Lab, presented by Arizona State's Center for Engagement & Training in Science & Society (CENTSS), is a two-week workshop that provides a space for grad students and postdocs to meet and interact with people who fund, regulate, shape, critique, publicize, and study science, including congressional staffers, funding agency officers, lobbyists, regulators, journalists, academics, museum curators and others. The conference is in full swing in Washington D.C., and two graduate students from Northwestern are participating. Read about their experiences below, or follow along on our Twitter page

Lawrence Crosby is a fifth-year PhD student in Materials Science and Engineering, who studies small metal particles that sit on top of other small particles for applications in catalysis, the process of speeding up chemical reactions. Read his post here.

Kelly McKinnon is a PhD Candidate in the Driskill Graduate Program (DGP) at Northwestern University. Looking to combine her love of science with her communications skills and advocacy for women’s health issues, Kelly came to Northwestern in 2013 to study under the mentorship of Dr. Teresa Woodruff, a pioneer for women’s health and reproductive science, who is internationally recognized for both her academic research and her communication and outreach.
