This work has helped generate coverage in The Washington Post, USA Today, National Public Radio, BBC News and other high-impact media outlets.
For each press release, we review scientific papers or other source material, interview the research team and prepare an engaging summary that will hook lay readers without “dumbing down” the research. Topics range from new surgical techniques to what basic chemistry can tell us about the origins of life on Earth. Continue reading

Anne researched and wrote this educational booklet on stem cell basics while a Communications Officer at the U.S. National Academy of Sciences. The goal was to provide an engaging, science-based explanation of stem cells and how they’re used in medicine to inform a more balanced public discourse on the topic, which was generating considerable controversy at the time.
An extensive review process—involving members of the clergy and groups opposed to stem cell research, in addition to many scientists—helped ensure that the booklet would speak to readers with many different perspectives.
The booklet was well-received by its target audiences and tens of thousands of copies have been distributed to classrooms, museums and other groups. Continue reading
