Tune in weekly to our virtual series "Seventeen Minutes of Science" every Tuesday at 11am PST / 2pm ET where we go live on Facebook with a new guest each week to talk about how science and biotechnology is woven into their lives for (you guessed it) 17 minutes!
This week on 17 Minutes of Science: A scientist’s journey from the lab bench to policy-making with Dr. Andrea Stathopoulos.
Andrea is a neuroscientist and AAAS Science and Technology Policy Fellow with NSF. Her specific role happens to include a fair amount of science communication. She would like to speak about how and why she transitioned away from academic science (research & teaching) and pursuing something else. She used to do Neuroscience research in graduate school and taught biology at a small liberal arts college for a few years after that.
Tune in to learn more about why Andrea left academia and what her current role looks like now.
