The Lasker Foundation has launched its 2018 Essay Contest! This exciting challenge engages young scientists and clinicians in discussions about the big questions in biology and medicine today, and the role of biomedical research in our society. The contest aims to build skills in communicating important medical and scientific issues to broader audiences.
The Foundation seeks essays of 800 words or less on the following topic:
How can social media help build trust in science and the research enterprise?
We now ask for your assistance in spreading the word about this contest by inviting students and fellows from your institution to participate. The Lasker Essay Contest is open to trainees in U.S. and international programs.
The deadline for submitting essays is Friday, March 30, 2018.
