Knight fellows at WHOI

Educating Journalists

Every year, WHOI scientists host a daylong visit by members of the Knight Science Journalism Program at MIT, which offers full-year fellowships to journalists to increase their understanding of science, technology, engineering, medicine, and environment. In 2011, WHOI marine biochemist Tracy Mincer explained some of his cutting-edge research on the "plastisphere" (microbes colonizing floating bits of plastic debris in the ocean), marine microbes as a source of potential drugs to combat cystic fibrosis; and bacteria that exhibit altruistic behavior.
