Student Voice


The goal of NeuWrite West is to create a forum in which scientists interested in writing and writers interested in science can come together to share and critique one another’s work, with a focus on writing about science for a general audience. Our goal is to develop our ability to engagingly convey complex ideas without sacrificing either scientific accuracy or successful communication. In particular, we would like to focus on effectively communicating not only scientific knowledge but also to convey the practice of science as a process of discovery.

Views expressed are not necessarily those of the Neurosciences Program, the School of Medicine, or Stanford University.
