Twelve Science Journalists Awarded Fellowships to Study at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole

MBL, Woods Hole, MA--Twelve science writers and editors have been awarded prestigious Science Journalism Fellowships at the MBL (Marine Biological Laboratory), an internationally known biomedical and environmental research center located in the village of Woods Hole, on Cape Cod. The program will provide the journalists hands-on science training during the MBL's famed summer research season, when hundreds of biologists gather at the institution from around the world to conduct research and to teach and learn advanced-level science and research techniques.

This year's MBL Science Journalism Fellows are:

Biomedical Course:
Allan Coukell, WBUR-FM
Susan Kruglinski, Discover magazine
Natasha Mitchell, Australian Broadcasting Corp.
Gary Robbins, Orange County Register
Susanne Rust, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Corinna Wu, AAAS Science Update

Environment Course:
Marc Airhart, Earth & Sky
Anton Caputo, San Antonio Express News
Mary Engel, Los Angeles Times
Richard Hollingham, BBC
Jim Metzner, Pulse of the Planet
Molly Murray, The News Journal

Now in its 21st year, the MBL's Science Journalism Program allows promising science journalists from around the globe to "step into the shoes of the scientists they cover," by awarding them fellowships to live and study at the Woods Hole, MA, laboratory. During their residencies at the MBL, fellows learn what science is like from the inside out--as students and researchers in the MBL's cutting-edge summer courses and laboratories. In August, five fellows will also travel with MBL scientists to the North Slope of Alaska's Brooks Range to learn more about climate change research and other environmental studies being conducted at a field site located on Toolik Lake.

All fellows will arrive in early June t
