Early Career Scientist Communication and Outreach Subcommittee

The Communication and Outreach Subcommittee aims to bridge the communication gap between scientific disciplines, as well as between scientists and the public. Members work together to craft informative articles and projects, helping to make new discoveries more accessible among researchers and fostering society’s understanding and appreciation of science.

Advisors:

  • Cassandra Extavour (Harvard University)
  • Thomas Merritt (Laurentian University)

 Goals:

  • Draw connections between fundamental discoveries that have originated in the genetics community and show how they have contributed to advancements in science, medicine, and technology.

Initial Projects:

  • Create infographics and communication pieces describing transformative discoveries for a general audience.

Current Members:

GENETICS Peer Review Training Program

Peer-reviewers are vital to science, yet early career scientists in our field rarely receive formal training in how to be a good reviewer. GSA and GENETICS are addressing this gap with a program that gives early career members real-world peer review experience. Participants will receive online training, advice from GENETICS editors, and will become reviewers for manuscripts submitted to the journal.
