The Outreach Liaison announced opportunities for fellows to share their work with the greater NIH community:

  • Postbacs, graduate students, postdocs, and research fellows can share their research in a simple and engaging way as part of a series of short videos called “SciBites.”

If you are interested in these opportunities, please reach out to Alison Jane Martingano (alisonjane.martingano@nih.gov).
