I. Media Appearances

Communication activities mostly began with interviews (34) which led to media appearances either directly or by way of press release (8). The more prominent media events have included articles in national print media (3 in C&EN, 1 in Science) and tens of appearances in major popular media (USAToday, Fox, MSNBC, BBC...). The activities have resulted in appearances in regional media by way of newspapers (4), radio (4) and TV (1), as well as in numerous appearances in Campus media. These events have spawned a flux of secondary media appearances by way of an amazing variety of online venues with global reach and, for example, via Asian News International (ANI). Only a few of these secondary events are included below; the following list is not and will never be complete. (Last Update 12/24/09)
