RICHLAND, Wash. – The Pacific Northwest’s leading scientific research institutions have launched a website devoted to sharing research news from the region’s science universities, institutes and national laboratory. The website – ScienceNorthwest.org – is primarily designed for news media, but may also be of interest to others interested in science, engineering and related topics.

ScienceNorthwest.org will include links to news releases and research magazines from the partner institutions. Research news from other Northwest organizations – such as regional or private colleges, and science centers – will also be added. Ultimately, site organizers hope to add original news material. Media and others can sign up to be notified each time a news release is posted to the site.

Partners include the University of Washington, Washington State University, the University of Oregon, Oregon State University, Oregon Health & Sciences University, the University of Idaho, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Institute and the Institute for Systems Biology, both in Seattle.

ScienceNorthwest.org is maintained by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in Richland.


ScienceNorthwest is a website devoted to the public understanding of science in the region through sharing research news from the Northwest's preeminent research institutions.  The website is edited and maintained by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in Richland, Wash.
