Michael Rosenwald, John F. Lauerman, Scott Nibauer, Peter Lien


Michael Rosenwald, “Newsroom to Bio Boom,” p. 40, is a staff writer at the Boston Globe, where he writes about issues dealing with the new economy, the workplace, and recruiting talented workers. He also writes for the Globe Sunday magazine. Rosenwald has also worked as a crime reporter at the Post-Gazette, and written for the New York Times, ESPN Magazine, and other publications. He says his interest in science is a recent development and that he likes to think that his stories, such as the one about Tom Petzinger’s bioinformatics incubator, will make his parents feel guilty about punishing him when he brought home all those Cs and Ds in science.
