About

AlisonTakemuraCropped

Alison writes about science, digging for the unexpected and nourishing. A current banana slug in the UC Santa Cruz Science Communication Program, she earned a doctorate in microbiology at MIT in September, and holds a bachelor’s in biochemistry and cell biology from Rice University. She’s now based in Boston for the summer as an intern with the seriously inquisitive and delightfully punny life sciences magazine, The Scientist.
