firstname.lastname@example.org!As the current NICHD Basic Sciences Institutes and Centers (IC) Representative, I represent NICHD postdoctoral fellows at the Fellows Committee (FelCom) meeting every month and share the latest news with you here. Do you have a concern or question that you want brought up at the next meeting? Contact me at
Two FelCom committees are looking for new members to help support their activities:
- The Social Committee plans social and networking events for NIH fellows.
- The Career Development Committee organizes monthly panels exploring career options for scientists.
If you are interested in joining the Social Committee, please contact Nick Madian (email@example.com), or if you are interested in joining the Career Development Committee, please contact Victoria Hill (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Amit Singh (email@example.com).
The Women Scientist Advisors Committee is hosting the annual Anita Roberts Lecture on Monday, November 1, from 1–3 p.m. The speaker this year is Michele K. Evans, MD, Deputy Scientific Director and Chief of the Health Disparities Research Section at NIA. The link for this virtual event is: https://videocast.nih.gov/watch=41534.
A guest presenter spoke at this month’s FelCom meeting—Brandon Levy, the editor of the I am Intramural blog. He spoke about the numerous means by which the IRP shares the research going on at NIH, to both educate the public and inform other scientists in the field. Please see their website to find links to their social media pages and the I am Intramural blog, as well as postdoc profiles, Research in Action stories (profiles on senior scientists) and SciBites (video series featuring fellows and their research presented for the public). If you are interested in having your research featured as a postdoc profile or creating a SciBite video, please contact the FelCom Outreach Liaison Alison Jane Martingano (firstname.lastname@example.org).
