Intramural Research Program Has A New Online Site
Until last month, the collection of NIH intramural research programs (IRP) lacked an integrated website. Many institutes have their own online presence, but there was never a central hub for all NIH intramural research. The new site features research advances, the people behind the programs, and new opportunities at NIH, among other interesting tidbits about the IRP. Check out this new site at http://irp.nih.gov.
Don’t Forget to Attend the NICHD Exchange
The upcoming NICHD Exchange is about “Getting the Message Out: From Social Media to Grassroots Campaigns.” Join Triesta Fowler-Lee, Yvonne Maddox, Jeremy Swan, and Kate Winseck for this interesting look at how to successfully achieve public outreach in the sciences. The NICHD Exchange meeting will be held on Friday, October 7, 2-4 p.m. at 6100 Executive Blvd, 5th floor conference room.
