Josh Baxt

Science Writer

San Diego - Go Padres!

Josh Baxt has been a science and healthcare writer for more than 20 years, working at Scripps Health and Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute before becoming a freelance science writer and journalist. He writes about molecular and cell biology, digital health, emerging therapies, public policy and other health and science-related topics. His work has appeared in San Diego Magazine, MedCity News, BioSpace, Pharmaceutical Executive and other outlets.

Josh has a BA in history from James Madison University and an MFA in creative writing from San Diego State University. When writing about complex topics, his priorities are telling good stories and translating the science into English. It’s not enough for people to understand the technology; they need to get the significance as well.


Why is storytelling your purpose?

Writing about science and technology, I’m constantly amazed we can do all this cool stuff. Everyone should know.
