Welcome to Duke Science Review
Issue 6 coming late summer 2019!
The Duke Science Review is a unique interdisciplinary platform for sharing scientific advancements at Duke with the greater university and Durham community. Our goal is to engage students across scientific and professional areas, bringing together many perspectives to enhance understanding and accessibility of new, exciting ideas being developed right here at Duke. Whether you have a unique scientific question to answer, would like to write about your own work, interview an admired faculty member, or simply open the floor for critical thought, there is a place for you in the Review!
