Contribute to BioLine

Thank you for taking the time to contribute to CBS BioLine! Our research is important and should be celebrated. It’s also a critical part of training to effectively articulate our work to those outside of our fields. We hope that your involvement will help you become a better science communicator and highlight your hard work as a CBS researcher.

Want extra support? 

We regularly hold BioLine Boot Camps to guide writers through the process. Sign up for the Fall 2021 BioLine Boot Camp. Sessions begin September 28 and space is limited.

Potential writers

Any undergraduate, graduate student, postdoc, or researcher involved in research in CBS. 


  • Published research with a co-author from a CBS lab. Ideally within the past year.
  • Experience at a recent conference you attended.
  • A funny lab story.
  • Anything else you think is worth sharing with others in CBS. 


  • Research summaries — Want to share findings out of your lab or another CBS lab? Write a summary about the manuscript. Keep it under 400 words and make it accessible to someone outside of the field.
  • Vignettes — Tell a short story poem, comic or something along those lines about your life in science. This does need not focus on research findings. 


All submissions will undergo review. Writers are encouraged to utilize the new SciComm Coaching Lab for feedback on drafts.


The full length piece will appear on the blog. Shorter versions will appear in the quarterly newsletter.
