When Science Meets Communication – Samantha Yammine talks social media and modernizing research engagement
By Sadaf Atarod
Scientific conferences are great for meeting interesting individuals in one’s field. These individuals may be well known Nobel Laureates, current or potential collaborators, patient advocates, your future Principal Investigator, or even your potential life partner! Even when conferences become routine, there is always something to find that makes it worthwhile to attend. At this year’s International Society for Stem Cell Research conference in Boston, I had the opportunity to connect with Samantha Yammine – first through Twitter and then at the conference itself – to discuss science communication. Samantha is in her final year of her PhD program, and an enthusiastic, passionate communicator of science to the public. In fact,it was her consistent, informative tweeting that led to my discovering Samantha among the 3000+ attendees!
