In our May issue, chief science correspondent Rajendrani Mukhopadyhay tells the evolving story of lysosomes. Once thought to serve as trash cans for the cell, Mukhopadhyay says lysosomes are having a “Cinderella moment” as researchers uncover their myriad contributions to the cell’s well-being. We also have a profile of the artist Kindra Crick, whose science-infused projects owe some debt to her grandfather Francis (yes, that Francis Crick), and we’re sharing sound advice about connecting with urban K – 12 communities from the outreach folks at The Rockefeller University.
