@HARVARDRESEARCH DEBUTS ON TWITTER

From basic science to the arts and humanities, research advances happen every day at Harvard. Now, for the first time, there’s a single source dedicated to research news from across disciplines and across the University.

A new Twitter account, @HarvardResearch, aims to showcase the breadth of Harvard’s research enterprise and the collective power of the University’s creativity and discoveries. Through a partnership involving all of Harvard’s Schools — and drawing content from each — @HarvardResearch is a one-stop source for news on all the latest advances in research, scholarship, and the arts across Harvard.
