Wistar Institute says "thanks for the memory" in science journalism award

The UK may have a diminishing number of awards for excellence in science journalism, but they continue to pour out of the USA. The latest writer to collect such a gong is Terry McDermott, a staff writer in the Los Angeles Times.

The piece on the award on Newswise Science News, Los Angeles Times Writer Wins Wistar Institute Science Journalism Award, tells us that "the judges also awarded an honorable mention—to Chip Rowe, senior editor at Playboy magazine, for his articles on male sexuality".

Terry won for a four-part investigative study of research on memory, “Chasing Memory: One Man’s Epic Quest for Understanding”. The award comes with a certificate and a $5000.
