Focus On

A resource for journalists to find stories and sources.

At Asia Research News, we have a strong network of researchers at institutes throughout Asia and beyond. Every couple of months we highlight ongoing research and expertise around one theme or topic. Journalists are welcome to contact researchers directly, or reach out to us if you need help finding a source. If you are a researcher and would like to be added to a Focus On, please contact us. We are at: [email protected] 


With the new coronavirus outbreak happening now, we have prepared an abbreviated Focus On to help connect journalists with experts who are prepared to speak with international media as the situation unfolds.






In line with the publication of Asia Research News 2020, we kick off the Focus On series with the brain. Research ranges from basic structure and function, to technology, diseases and treatments.
