FAQs

General

1. How often do you publish a newsletter?

Each issue is released at the beginning of each of the following months of the fall and spring semesters: September, October, November, January, February, March, and April. Newsletters are not published over the summer semester.

2. Where can I get a copy?

Hard copies are available in the back lobby of UA Whitaker and in front of Coffee Snobs (located in the atrium of the IBB). Online versions (including archives of issues as PDFs) are available at www.thepioneer.gatech.edu. If you are on a Coulter Department mailing list, then you may also receive a copy via e-mail.

3. Who is this for? Can I read this?

Yes! Our core audience is physically located in Whitaker and IBB, but we write for the Georgia Tech biotechnology community in general, which includes undergraduates, graduates, faculty, staff, and alumni. Also, anyone with biotechnology interests is welcome to read The Pioneer!

Sponsors

1. Why aren’t you going paperless? Why do you have hard copies?

We have an active online presence via e-mail and at this website, but the majority of our readers first have access to The Pioneer via hard copies. Having these newsletters allow readers to peruse an article while eating lunch, waiting for a class to start, incubating an experiment, et cetera … as well as keep articles they find pertinent.

2. What specifications do you have for advertisement material?

Specifications and other details are available in our sponsorship package.

3. What is your audience?

Graduates, undergraduates, faculty, staff, and alumni in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech, the Parker H. Petit Institute of Bioscience and Bioengineering, and the Georgia Tech biotechnology community.

Potential Staff

1. What positions are available?

Writer, copy editor, layout editor, photographer, and webmaster. For more details, see the Join Us tab.

2. What if I have no experience writing/copy editing/layout editing/photographing/webmastering?

No experience … no problem! Instead, we’ll ask you if you are interested in learning whichever position you wish to pursue. If yes, then we can teach you the software/program that we use.
