SPIE: Breast Cancer Diagnosis
Between July and November of 2015, I acted as a public relations contractor for SPIE, the International Society for Optics and Photonics. My task was to review research articles published in SPIE’s eleven peer-reviewed scientific journals and identify the ones with potential mainstream appeal as science news items.
Then I produced a concise yet accurate summary of the article, explaining the research findings to a nonscientific audience. My work formed the basis for SPIE press releases disseminated to science news channels.
In this case, I wrote a summary of “Breast cancer diagnosis using spatial light interference microscopy,” published in the August 20, 2015 issue of the Journal of Biomedical Optics.
