BioLine Boot Camp — Fall 2022

BioLine - sharing bio-related research beyond the bubble

Strong science communication skills are essential in academia, industry, nonprofit and beyond. Hone your writing skills and contribute to BioLine, a blog launched in 2020 by CBS grad students, that shares stories and findings from UMN labs. Write for audiences beyond your academic bubble and get helpful feedback as you write.

Participants will:

  • Decipher what jargon is worth explaining and what can be left out. 
  • Brainstorm creative analogies to explain complex concepts in your research.
  • Write, peer-review, and submit a piece for BioLine.


  • Open to anyone interested in submitting to BioLine
  • 4 workshops, 2 hours each
  • Wednesdays, 8:30 - 10:30 a.m. CT | Oct 26, Nov 2, Nov 16,  Nov 30
  • In-person (St. Paul or East Bank) or virtual, depending on participant feedback




Spots are limited.
