Certain companies involve interns in high-profile projects, but that’s not always the case. Whether you liked it or not, chances are you got stuck doing a bunch of grunt work when you were an intern. Let’s just hope you didn’t get used to it!
In contrast to being an intern or a student, full-time employees—even entry-level ones—are expected to do more than just follow orders. “At permanent positions, you’re expected to have more than a superficial understanding of the work topic and be a bit more independent,” says Luz Claudio, professor and chief of the Division of International Health at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City.
So, how can media coverage of science be improved? Research scientist Luz Claudio, Ph.D., author of How To Write And Publish A Scientific Paper: The Step-By-Step Guide, advises researchers to write their own press releases with the help of their institution's press office to get the message out. "Also, they should answer reporters' inquiries in writing rather than giving telephone interviews in order to reduce the potential for misinterpretation of results," she says in an e-mail interview.

Claudio knew that she wanted to work at the intersection of public-health research and policy. Today, as head of the division of international health at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City, Claudio has won renown for her work on asthma in low-income communities. She credits her relationship with the committee member: “That experience changed my life.”
“One measure of success for professors is the success of their students,” says Claudio.
As a result of this project, we will train over 180 people to develop team skills to understand, select and use genomics data tools and approaches,” Kovatch and colleagues Luz Claudio, Ph.D., professor of preventive medicine, and Andrew Sharp, Ph.D., senior faculty member and associate professor of genetics and genomic sciences, stated in an abstract of their grant proposal. The course will be offered online via Coursera, they added.."
Because of this experience, Dr. Claudio applies the same principles as a mentor for underrepresented students in science. She says all of her mentees “are expected to publish their research in peer-reviewed journals or present them in professional conferences… because the publication of a scientific research paper in a peer-reviewed journal is one of the top accomplishments that a student can have in a STEM program.”
