The 55th annual New Horizons in Science briefings were presented in San Francisco, California, as part of the 10th World Conference of Science Journalists. The WCSJ2017 program was an "international edition," with many science sessions proposed and organized by colleagues around the world. Co-hosts of this special presentation were the University of California, San Francisco and UC Berkeley.
CASW was able to present the 55th annual New Horizons in Science briefings and co-organize WCSJ2017 through the generosity of many sponsors of the World Conference of Science Journalists. We extend special thanks to the conference's Diamond Sponsor, Johnson & Johnson Innovation.
