News releases related to biology and medicine are posted online on the date of their embargo. Our releases are accessible to qualified journalists on EurekAlert!, an online news resource sponsored by the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and Newswise, a press release distribution service. We will share embargoed news releases and manuscripts on request.
The News Office is available to assist journalists and media professionals with breaking news, as well as finding expert health care sources, including physicians and researchers.
