Stories in Science

Science is fundamentally about people. Either the people who do it, or the people who are affected by it. The Brandeis MakerLab and Brandeis MRSEC have partnered with the Journal of Stories in Science to highlight the diversity of stories from members of Brandeis University science and innovation community (faculty, staff, postdocs, grads, undergrads and alumni).
