Founded in 2003, Science News for Students is an award-winning online publication dedicated to providing age-appropriate, topical science news to learners, parents and educators. Published in the February 1, 2017 issue of Science of the Total Environment, the study was coauthored by Jeffrey Weidenhamer (Trustees’ Distinguished Professor of Chemistry), Meghann Fitzpatrick (Senior Biology major), Alison Biro (Toxicology ’15), Peter Kobunski (Biochemistry ’15), Michael Hudson (Associate Professor of Geology), Rebecca Corbin (Professor of Chemistry), and Perry Gottesfeld (OK International).
It not only continues, as before, to give news but also comments on them, criticizes the people and the government, deals with social, political, industrial and religious questions, reviews books and periodicals, ventilates grievances and does many other things, In fact there is hardly any public activity of man which does not come within the purview of the modern newspaper.
In addition to his research and courses in molecular and cellular biology, genetics and botany, Dr. Brauner recently ended a long term as the Director of Ashland University’s Environmental Science Program He was instrumental in securing significant government and foundation funding for development of our environmental preserves, and planning for our environmental lecture series , which is entering its 20th year.

While in Australia, he presented invited lectures at CSU, in a symposium on root zone interactions at the International Botanical Congress , in a symposium on root-soil interactions hosted by the E.F.
