The Students of SETAC Outreach Blog provides a platform for emerging environmental toxicologists and chemists to educate, engage, and involve communities in their research. We hope to accomplish this by

  • Encouraging students in the SETAC community to communicate their own research or important findings from other contemporary research to broader audiences
  • Publicizing science outreach efforts of SETAC students
  • Creating a network of students and community members interested in coordinating collaborative environmental research efforts, and
  • Increase networking opportunities.

Regardless of topic, we strive for all content to be accessible to the broadest possible audience. This website publishes two major types of blog posts which highlight science outreach and education efforts:

  1. Outreach Blog
    • Sharing past successes in community outreach and engagement related to environmental research
  2. Research Blog
    • Student’s explaining their own graduate research, or
    • Summarizing important science and/or publications in the field of
      environmental toxicology and chemistry

Ways you can participate: If you are explaining your own research/outreach, you can either submit a full-length blog post or a Photoblog post – a photo of you doing research/outreach, accompanied by approximately 300 words describing what you like about it. 

Be sure to submit three keywords that describe your research/outreach work so that we can link similar keywords and students can identify which people working in different fields.

We are currently recruiting new contributors! If you are interested in sharing research or science outreach efforts that excite you, or if you have any questions regarding the Students of SETAC Outreach Blog please contact Jada Damond (damond1@umbc.edu)
