Welcome to “Lions Talk Science”!

Welcome, readers! “Lions Talk Science” is a blog written by the graduate students of Penn State College of Medicine in Hershey, Pennsylvania. The purpose of this blog is fourfold:

  1. To increase public understanding of biomedical research going on at Penn State College of Medicine;
  2. To give a glimpse into the day in the life of a scientist—beyond the nerdy pop culture images we’re so accustomed to seeing;
  3. To educate prospective students and the community about what graduate school is;
  4. To dispel bad science journalism by having us scientists directly explain our findings to our readers.

From scientific experiments to fascinating findings (without the jargon!) to goofy pictures of us in the laboratories, we hope you find this blog informative, intriguing, and fun!
