The Science Media Center Germany

Mouse egg cells made from skin cells. Driverless car has fatal accident. Trigger for recurring bladder infection discovered. Limits for fine dust and nitrogen oxides diverge. DNA analysis to be extended in criminal cases – the Science Media Center Germany helps journalists with their reporting.

When current events are linked to research and breaking science news causes a public stir – journalists are faced with a challenge: How and where to find quick and reliable scientific expertise? Where to reach experts who are not only willing, but also able, to provide quotable answers and additional information? How to discover sources for factual arguments and hard facts when debates get emotional?
