Biochemistry Alumna turned Science Writer Nicholette Zeliadt in Latest Issue of The Scientist

Nicholette Zeliadt, an undergraduate in the Department of Biochemistry from 1997 to 2001, has parlayed her science education into a science writing career.

Her most recent article, “Tailoring Your Proteome,” is in this month’s issue of The Scientist. Earlier articles have appeared in Scientific American, Science, Nature, and The Scientist.

As a biochemistry student, Nicholette took a Technical Communications course, for which she gave a presentation on pathogenic prions–arguably her first real piece of science writing for an audience.

Her professional science writing career was launched when, after earning her PhD at the University of Minnesota, she interned at Scientific American for a summer during her mass media fellowship from the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).
