Be Brief: Viral Communication

By Mariana Grohowski | Published

International Research Experience for Students (IRES) teaches undergraduate and graduate students to communicate research. See the 2018 cohort in action; apply for the 2019 cohort by Feb. 15.

If the words nanoparticles and osmolytes make your eyes glaze over, just wait. Gearing up for its third consecutive year, the IRES program ushers a group of six U.S. students to learn innovative ways to communicate their research (think social media, mobile-device friendly and for a non-science-y audience) — making scientific concepts more accessible than ever.

Experience the 2018 cohort’s nine-week, immersive and interdisciplinary education vicariously through video.
