The Media and Communications Committee is in charge of promoting communication among postdoctoral fellows, from our weekly newsletter to our Science in Sixty Seconds workshop to develop "elevator speeches." We facilitate communication between our committees and between the JHPDA and all postdoctoral fellows. If you have an event you want to organise, just drop us a line and we'll put you in touch with the right person. 

Our weekly newsletters can be found in the Announcements section. Downloadable media from our various events can be found in the Resources section. You can follow us on facebook ( and we have recently opened a twitter-account as well:

We always need help, so if you enjoy communication, enjoy making websites, posters and other graphics, you're the person for us! Please contact us by emailing

For the following year, we'd like to strengthen our focus on scientific communication, especially to the media and the public. After all, if you can't talk about your research, how can you spread the word that science is cool and worthwhile!
