SAN DIEGO—This year, we’ve opened up our coverage of the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (which publishes ScienceNOW) to guest bloggers. Scientists, students, and other meeting attendees are sharing their thoughts about the conference on ScienceBloggers. Here are some of the highlights so far:
Hey, is that National Public Radio's Ira Flatow? Guest blogger Ben Landis—a self-described “fish geek, hockey fan, and science scribe”—caught the Science Friday host as he taped his show from the conference. Check out Ben’s coverage and video clips here.
Ben also attended the Opening Ceremony of the AAAS meeting on Thursday. While it didn’t have quite the pomp and circumstance of the Winter Olympics, it did have a torch bearer, if merely symbolic, in outgoing AAAS president and Nobel Prize-winner Peter Agre (up next is Caltech scientist Alice Huang). Agre spoke about the importance of family—not just relatives, but scientific colleagues too—and how chance meetings can transform one’s career.
Guest blogger Haley Bridger—“an East Coast science writer and a West Coast blogger”—focused on the future of personalized medicine. Can biomarkers help doctors treat kidney and liver disease before it’s too late? Check out Haley’s take here.
