The Scientist features Gill winning science communication award

The Scientist spoke with Jacquelyn Gill, who won one of 24 inaugural Eric and Wendy Schmidt Awards for Excellence in Science Communication from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine recognizing efforts to communicate scientific issues to the general public. “As someone who is publicly funded and at a public institution, I feel very much a sense of responsibility to use my knowledge and experience and platform for the public good. There are lots of ways to do that, but for me, science communication is something that I feel called to do and also that revitalizes my science and gives it meaning,” Gill told The Scientist.
