Communicating science to the public is an important part of being a scientist. As part of our Human Reproductive Development course (REPR_SCI 406), our Master of Science in Reproductive Science and Medicine students used their creativity to create presentations about reproductive science in terms that the general public could easily understand. The group’s projects ranged from poetry, songs, and crossword puzzles, to Facebook posts, surveys and prototypes!
The Center for Reproductive Science Director, Teresa K. Woodruff, was recently highlighted in Technology Networks’ latest eBook, Women in Science. This eBook is a celebration of the exceptional contributions today’s female researchers make to the world of science.
The CRS is enabling learning in different ways. Last week, the CRS Community participated in special virtual lectures from two luminaries in the field of reproductive science; Dr. Jennifer Wood, Associate professor in Molecular and Cellular Reproductive Physiology at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and Dr. Jon Hennebold, Professor and Chief in the Division of Reproductive & Developmental Sciences at the Oregon National Primate Research Center, Oregon Health & Science University. Our MS in Reproductive Science and Medicine (MS-RSM) students also received some hands-on learning via a tour of the Northwestern Medicine Fertility and Reproductive Medicine lab.
The Center for Reproductive Science has had a busy start to 2018! In this article, we recap all of the exciting programming and events that have happened so far in January.
