Since Nature Network launched in 2007, the plan has always been to launch more new city-based ‘hubs’ to serve the many local communities of scientists active on Nature Network.
Nature Network New York has its own blog, forum, jobs and events listings, geared towards researchers based in the greater New York area and those around the world interested in the scientific activities happening in the Big Apple. With more than a dozen top research institutes concentrated in a relatively small area, New York is a hotbed of research and Nature Network New York intends to bring that community closer together.
NN NY is run by two scientists from Columbia University, Caryn Shechtman and Barry Hudson. They will be posting regularly to the New York blog about the latest news and trends in New York city science. You can check out their latest posts here and here.
Check it out and let us know what you think. You can post to the NY forum or email us at network at nature.com.
