Sunday 25th November 2.30-4.00 pm
ASSCR Conference during the AHMR Congress Room 10, Adelaide Convention Centre
Why limit talking about your research to only a few journals? Want to influence a wider audience? Ever thought about having an online profile? Renowned stem cell blogger Paul Knoepfler believes ‘savvy scientists must increasingly engage with blogs and social media.’ With from 100 to 500 readers a day, Paul Knoepfers blog has a far reach. He not only writes for wide audiences, but also influences the stem cell debate in the USA. Social media tools such as blogs and twitter are an opportunity for you to advertise your research, shape public views and establish wider online communities.
Presentations from bloggers:
- Paul Knoepfler, Associate Professor, UC Davis Genome Center blogs at ipscell.com with 1,323 twitter followers!
- Noby Leong a PhD student at Adelaide University who blogs at The Other Side of Science
- Sarah Keenihan uses her blog, Open Forum to profile her work
This is an excellent opportunity to learn how blogging, tweeting, facebook can help you connect with peers and keep on the cutting edge of your research field.
