I am managing editor of Biomedical Computation Review (BCR), a new magazine being launched by SimBios as part of its NCBC grant. The goal of the magazine is to help build a community of people who, while they may work in diverse fields, share the goal of using high-level computing to solve complex medical problems. After completing my training in science writing at the U.C. Santa Cruz science communication program (widely considered the best program in the nation), I interned with Sage KE, Science Magazine’s online website on aging. Like BCR, Sage was designed to bring together a diverse group of researchers, all of whom are interested in some aspect of aging. I have also worked for Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital and the Stanford University School of Medicine.
