Each summer, The Jackson Laboratory joins with Johns Hopkins University to host Press Week, held in July during the second week of the world-renowned Short Course in Medical and Experimental Mammalian Genetics. Press Week gives science writers and journalists from across the nation a chance to hear first-hand from some of the world's leading researchers and clinicians about the latest breakthroughs in the rapidly advancing fields of molecular biology and medical genetics.
The Jackson Laboratory is sponsoring four $1,000 fellowships to enable graduate-level science writing students or relatively new science writers working at smaller media outlets to attend Press Week 2008 in beautiful Bar Harbor, Maine. Applications are due March 31, 2008, and fellowship recipients will be notified by April 30.
