Science writing and editing for companies, large journals or the federal government are several different ways of being away from the bench, but close to science. If you have considered a career in writing/editing, or want to learn more, our award-winning panelists will be at the NIH to talk about how they transitioned to their writing/editing job and answer questions. Each panelist has had a unique career path, and will offer different perspectives on writing/editing careers, as well as the pros and cons of their current positions. Please join us!
