kavli institute for systems neuroscience (KISN):
annual report, 2016
Each year the Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience (KISN), publishes an annual report to inform stakeholders, and the public, about their latest research activities. As a contracted science writer for KISN, I interview Nobel-Prize winning scientist and Director of the institute, May-Britt Moser, as well as group leaders about the latest research findings. Next, I write profile pieces featuring the science in clear, engaging and accessible language.
This was one of my favourite projects to work on. First, I got the chance to talk to brilliant neuroscientists about their creative ideas (and their fascinating findings about the brain!). Second, I genuinely enjoy the challenge of taking complex ideas and writing about them for a general audience in engaging and accurate language. Finally, writing several pieces that were meant to fit together in a single report was a real creative labour of love.
