To learn more about science policy, check out the Journal of Science Policy & Governance. JSPG is a peer-review publication with an editorial board comprised of graduate students and and early career professionals that allows students, policy fellows, and young scholars from all academic backgrounds to publish on a wide range of topics at the intersection of science, technology, and public policy.
The Emory Science Advocacy Network (EScAN) is a graduate student group at Emory University that seeks to promote biomedical research funding through advocacy and education. EScAN currently has about 90 members represented from the Laney Graduate School Graduate Division of Biological and Biomedical Sciences (GDBBS), the Rollins School of Public Health, Emory University School of Medicine, and Emory College of Arts & Sciences Departments of Chemistry and Physics.

Student Organization Seeking GSGA Recognition or Renewing Registration
The purpose of the Emory Science Advocacy Network (EScAN) is to provide a forum for graduate students interested in science policy and advocacy to stay informed, discuss current issues facing the biomedical field, and to determine what we, as scientists in training, can do to support robust federal funding of biomedical research.
