We believe strongly in making our science accessible to the public. To this end, we take every opportunity to speak with the media and to put out press releases about our work. We hope that this makes it that much easier for the public to read about our progress. Below is a collection of podcasts, articles, and press releases about our work. At the end, we’ve also included some fun or non-science ways we’ve interacted with the media.
