News Clips

I have written news stories to daily or weekly deadlines on topics including health, medicine, environment, geology, physics, and astronomy. However, my expertise is in molecular biology and genetics. I have included links to web pages or to PDF files when they are available. I can also fax articles on request. You can see additional news clips written for Stanford Report on the University Relations page.
