Our new sister site: Chembites

If you’ve been enjoying following the astrophysical literature by reading Astrobites, check out our new sister site, Chembites, which does the same thing for chemistry. If you know any undergraduate chem majors or anyone else interested in the science, be sure to point them towards it: http://chembites.wordpress.com/.

Chembites has recently been founded by a group of seven chemistry graduate students at MIT. They’re posting summaries of chemistry journal articles aimed at undergraduate readers, just like we do for astronomy.

For example, check out their recent post reviewing recent research looking for an imaging agent for myelin, which would help track the progress of Multiple sclerosis .

About Nathan Sanders

I am one of the members of the team that founded Astrobites in 2010 and a co-founder of ComSciCon, the Communicating Science Workshop for graduate students. I earned my Ph.D. in astronomy at Harvard University in 2014, focusing on observations of supernovae and their host galaxies; investigating how massive stars explode and enrich the interstellar medium. I did my undergraduate work at Michigan State University.
