A co-founder of the field of neuroendocrinology, Berta Scharrer escaped Nazi Germany for the University of Chicago. Being a woman meant Berta didn''t receive a professional title or salary until 20 years after receiving her doctorate. Eventually she settled with her husband and research partner in New York, where she got to know a particular bug, the #woodroach.

You learned the solutions to the challenges of reproducibility in kindergarten. BrianNosek of @uva suggests that you 1. Show your work and 2. Share. He''s got a little more science than that to back it up as well. #SacklerColloquium #reproducibility #science #kindergarten #incentives

Kathleen Hall Jamieson of @uofpenn discussing the unintentional confusion between scientists & media at Sackler Colloquium on Reproducibility in Research. Does every day language mean the same thing to scientists as it does to journalists? For instance, what is the difference between ""eliminate"" and ""eradicate""? #science #SacklerColloquium #reproducibility #scicomm #journalist #scientist #language

We hope to see you on March 21 for #DCEFF25 screening #APlasticOcean. @cpnas is bringing this free screening to the NAS Building! In this adventure documentary, Craig Leeson teams up with free diver Tanya Streeter and an international team of scientists and researchers, and they travel to 20 locations around the world to explore the fragile state of our oceans, uncover alarming truths about plastic pollution, and reveal working solutions that can be put into immediate effect. Following the screening, there will be a discussion moderated by Kevin Finneran, editor-in-chief, Issues in Science and Technology, with Susan Roberts, director, Ocean Studies Board, @thenasem , and Nancy Wallace, chief, @noaa Marine Debris Division, Office of Response and Restoration. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/a-plastic-ocean-2017-environmental-film-festival-in-the-nations-capital-tickets-32127150171 #diver #science #CleanOceans #documentary #CleanItUp #oceans #pollution #BlueWhale #solutions #FreeInDC #DCeff #envirofilm #filmfestival #savethedate
