Science for Life. 365

On Sunday I’m delighted to be presenting a brief talk to student members of the Australia Society for Stem Cell Research. The focus will be on how to get the most out of social media if you’re working in the  life sciences.

I’m constantly using social media to communicate science (and other stuff!) of course, but wanted to find some academic material to back up my ramblings.

Here’s a list of freely-available publications I’ve been reading through today, and found useful:
