Since its founding, HudsonAlpha has striven to explain scientific discoveries clearly, free of technical jargon. The end-goal? Citizens who understand the implications and application of life science research, without requiring a dictionary or translator. Dr. Neil Lamb, the Vice President for Educational Outreach, authors an ongoing series of articles for HudsonAlpha’s newsletter.
