Fatéma Dodat, PhD student at IRIC and Faculté de Pharmacie, created a popular science blog to allow students to promote research

Published on August 28, 2020

Lockdown and the pandemic caused multiple consequences among which an increase in screen time and more people looking for reliable scientific news. At the end of her PhD in Pharmaceutical Sciences and passionate about popularizing science, Fatéma Dodat took advantage of this period to develop a blog (https://www.point-science.com/) that promotes accessible scientific news.

Every week, this platform publishes articles written by graduate students or young graduates.

“In addition to allowing graduate students and young graduated to share their passion for their work or to take stock of current scientific topics related to their field of expertise, this blog also offers visibility to authors”, explains Fatéma Dodat.

Congratulations for this initiative and do not hesitate to write to her to participate!
