February 2021
The Science Spotlight newsletter features publications from Brigham researchers in high-impact journals and research metrics from the prior month. The gold colored buttons denote COVID-19 related publications. Brigham authors are bolded.
In January there were:
33 papers led by Brigham researchers published in top-tier journals
43 tweets about new research and 68.6K tweet impressions
79 awards with $27,436,067 in new grants
One of our guiding principles at the Brigham is inclusivity. In our BRI communications, we recognize the importance of proactively promoting and addressing equity in alignment with one of our core values of embracing a culture of shared humanity and dignity. As we celebrate and honor Black History Month, note that this February Science Spotlight newsletter highlights a diverse group of BWH scientists.
A Reminder from the Office of Strategic Communication: If you have research news to share, please contact us. Ideally, we work with researchers as soon as a paper is accepted at a journal to develop an appropriate communication strategy in advance of publication. For media relations and social media support, email mediarelations@bwh.harvard.edu or contact Haley Bridger directly at hbridger@bwh.harvard.edu

Submit Your Publication to Science Spotlight
In Science Spotlight, we highlight publications from Brigham researchers in high-impact journals that can be found in Harvard Medical School's Paper Chase research database. We recognize there are many other Brigham publications in Journals that may not be included on this list, so we would like to extend the opportunity to our research community. If you and/or your Brigham colleagues are the first and/or last author on a recent publication, we want to include you in our Science Spotlight newsletter! Please fill out this brief REDCap form with the details of your publication.
