Think About This!

After researchers have conducted experiments and analyzed their results, they often publish these findings in journals. They publish these results to help educate people and to further the scientific knowledge that is available to others! Additionally, scientists hold conferences where people give talks on their work. These forms of sharing information can be very helpful to other researchers because they inspire new ideas and provide easily accessible scientific information.

For example, after the students in professor Gellman's group have designed molecules and tested them to see if they work to fight cancer or HIV, they publish these results to help educate people and to further the scientific knowledge that is available to others!
