The intent of this minor is to build scientific communication, engagement, and leadership practices. Students will be equipped with the following:
- The ability to communicate effectively about the science they undertake and the challenges they face in ways that are meaningful related to their field of study.
- The skills to participate and lead others in scientific ventures. Eight credits of coursework must be unique to the minor.
Accolades celebrate the professional achievements of the faculty and staff in the College of Science. The following accolades are published for the months of December 2017 and January 2018. (more…)
Join us at 2 p.m. on December 20, 2017, as we hear from Alessandra Luchini and Lance Liotta, Mason scientists from CAPMM, who developed a nanotechnology-based urine test that could lead to early TB detection.
Submit your questions below and we’ll ask them during the Facebook Live chat.

Scientists at George Mason University have developed a nanotechnology that for the first time can measure a sugar molecule in urine that identifies tuberculosis with high sensitivity and specificity, setting the stage for a rapid, highly accurate and far less-invasive urine test of the disease that could potentially prove to be the difference between life and death in many underdeveloped parts of the world.
