June 2021
The Science Spotlight newsletter features publications from Brigham researchers in high-impact journals. Recognizing that journal impact factor is not an absolute way to feature all scientific publications of significant merit, we welcome investigators to submit noteworthy articles to be featured in the newsletter through this REDCap survey.
*The gold colored buttons denote COVID-19 related publications.
In May there were:
1,121 total papers listed in PubMed with Brigham authors
69 tweets about new research and 119K tweet impressions
6 papers features in "What's New in Research"
67 awards with $34,607,077 in new grants
A Reminder from the Office of Strategic Communication: If you have research news to share, please contact us. Ideally, we work with researchers as soon as a paper is accepted at a journal to develop an appropriate communication strategy in advance of publication. For media relations and social media support, email mediarelations@bwh.harvard.edu or contact Haley Bridger directly at hbridger@bwh.harvard.edu
