What topic should I write my first article for the University Science Magazine about?
I’m contemplating writing about quorum sensing among bacteria and the fact that antagonists of this phenomenon may well be the answer to our problems with regards to there being no new, useful antibiotic discoveries, and obviously their overuse and misuse.
As a biomedical scientist, I obviously find this interesting however I want to appeal to a wider audience and make non-scientists fall in love with science! I’m aware many people find bacteria boring though. It’s also my first article and haven’t written anything like in many years.
Any help on interesting topics to cover or what angle to go from with the above topic in order to make it seem more appealing to non-scientists would be greatly appreciated!
