Spring Special Topics Publication

Scientists work across disciplines to solve complex scientific problems, and thus increasingly work in teams to write scientific content. The Spring 2020 Special Topics focused on “Team Writing”. There are a number of behavioral and organizational skills essential for effective team writing and this interactive course provided practical experience in team literature research, outlining, drafting, editing, and formal classroom presentations.

The class used a deliberate approach to develop a professional scientific review article that was submitted and published in the Journal Pharmacology & Therapeutics titled “The Chemistry and Toxicology of Vaping”.
