New Student-Led Group Campaigns for More Science-Based Public Policy

Jennifer Tribble (Neuroscience), Maria Lazaro (Neuroscience), and Catharine Krebs (Genetics & Genomics) co-founded The Science Policy Group at UCLA to create a place for students to explore and build skills for careers in science policy.


According to Tribble, the group’s main goals are to “provide professional development opportunities to students and scientists, inform the public about science policy and create a space for students to advocate for specific issues.”


They also plan to communicate views via their blog, social media, and newspapers, hold speaker series, and collaborate with other local university science policy groups.
