In a continued effort to bring the readers of The Scientist the very best in life science research news, we have examined our full lineup of Facebook pages and found that we could streamline some of our channels to provide clearer and more succinct coverage with a renewed sense of academic rigor.
The changes are as follows:
Cell and Microbial Science will be the new name for a merger of pages previously known as The Micro Scientist and The Cell Scientist.
- Topics to be covered on this page include drug discovery, stem cells, cell function and communication, hormones, biomaterials, bioluminescence, epidemiology, immunizations, microscopy, microbiology, regenerative science, bioethics, and policy.
Cancer and Genomic Science will represent the merger of The Cancer Scientist and The Genome Scientist.
- Topics to be covered on this page will include cancer research, genetics/genomics, GMO policy, gene therapy molecular biology, diagnostic tools and techniques, treatments, funding, animal husbandry policy, clinical trials, bioethics, and drug discovery.
The Scientist Facebook page has absorbed the page known as The EnviroScientist.
The NeuroScientist and The Scientist Careers will remain unchanged in both name and scope.
While there seems to be a lot changing, each of these adjustments was carefully considered to minimize impact or confusion to our core audience of life science researchers. Mergers occurred between pages with very similar scopes and the name changes will provide a sense of uniformity within our brand.
