The Science of Science Communication II

The Sackler Colloquia and Annual Sackler Lecture are made possible by a generous gift from Mrs. Jill Sackler, in memory of her husband, Arthur M. Sackler.

Concerted efforts to meet these challenges have produced a growing area of research—the science of science communication. Investigators are examining such issues as the ways that attitudes and beliefs are formed and can be changed; the role of social networks in how information is disseminated and received; and strategies for communicating science in highly-charged, politicized environments.
