It was an extremely satisfying experience working with the Research Features Team. The team asked for specific information to be included in the article and provided simple instructions that were very easy to follow. I was particularly impressed with the incisive questions for which I was asked to provide detailed responses. In retrospect, these questions really allowed the article to capture the flavor of our research endeavors. I sent a limited number of illustrations to the team that were reproduced beautifully in the final version of the article. I was unprepared for just how fabulous the final article looked. I took a copy of the journal where he article appeared to a meeting of the Penn SRP Center investigators.
There was universal enthusiasm at the meeting regarding the production quality and the impact of the text. Perhaps more importantly, I will have a trifold version of the article to take with me to lectures, visits to EPA and industry, as well to meetings with other stakeholders involved in funding the Center. I anticipate that this will be a tremendous asset in justifying the work done at Penn by our NIEHS-funded SRP Center.
