Welcome to Lions Talk Science, the blog written by the graduate students and research community of Penn State College of Medicine in Hershey, Pennsylvania.
We aim to enhance scientific literacy in our community, regardless of our readers’ educational backgrounds.
The purpose of Lions Talk Science is fourfold:
1. To increase public understanding of biomedical research going on at Penn State College of Medicine in an understandable, accessible format;
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!
