Partner Network Advantage - New Job Board Feature
Why post your job on NAVBO's career center rather than going directly to the larger job networks?
Pricing on the mass job boards can vary, but to get a job noticed you typically have to sponsor it for $5 - $10 per day, which can add up quickly especially since you also pay for each click the job gets. When you add it all together, you could be spending up to $45 per day on your job posting. But, when posting a job on NAVBO's career center, you simply pay a flat fee! The Premium package includes our Exclusive Extended Partner Network - which means the jobs are broadcast to sites like ZipRecruiter and Jobs2Careers and more for a flat fee.
With special member pricing, you can post a job for as low as $300 with this Partner Network. You never pay for each click, just the flat fee on the NAVBO career center. In addition, the Premium package includes a 60-day job posting making it a great value. The Premium packages also offer features like having your company's logo featured on the career center homepage, having your job appear first in search results, and more.

Vasculata 2019 - We've Added Something New!
Consider being a Mentor for a Vasculata Attendee
This year's Vasculata will feature an exciting, new mentoring program.   Attendees at Vasculata will receive the added benefit of connecting with a new mentor.  This will be strictly online and mentors need not attend Vasculata.  Once a trainee has registered for Vasculata, they will receive access to the mentor database.  This will extend the educational benefits of Vasculata far beyond July 2019!

We are currently looking for volunteers. 
So many NAVBO members reach out to our staff asking how they can get more involved with the society.  This is a great first step!  You can help train the next generation of vascular biologists. Regardless of the stage you have reached in your career, you can be a mentor.  For example, postdocs can be great mentors to graduate and undergraduate students.

Please consider this request.  We look forward to seeing your name in the Vasculata mentoring program site!  Vasculata begins on July 15, 2019  and we hope to have a complete listing of mentors by July 1. 

For more information on this program and to sign up, go to our web site: http://www.navbo.org/events/vasculata2019/mentor

Spotlight on Trainees
A creative cure for poster session woes?
Youtuber and industrial-organizational psychologist Mike Morrison has released an animated account of his ideas on "How to create a better research poster in less time," which has garnered over 80,000 views and even a shout-out in Nature Briefing in its first ten days online. Irrespective of one's opinion of Mike's thoughts on how to efficiently display and absorb a poster's main message, trainees-nay, all scientists-will appreciate his spot-on depiction of the agonies associated with presenting a poster to indifferent conference attendees or frantically cruising the cardboard canyons to find the good stuff.  As is often the case with ideas subjected to the scrutiny of social media, the comments accumulating under Mike's video, covering the full spectrum of reactions, are at least as enlightening as the video itself.

Dynamic changes to lipid mediators support transitions among macrophage subtypes during muscle regeneration
Nature Immunology
Muscle damage elicits a sterile immune response that facilitates complete regeneration. Here, we used mass spectrometry-based lipidomics to map the mediator lipidome during the transition from inflammation to resolution and regeneration in skeletal muscle injury.  Read more

Upcoming conference on research integrity in the academy
Northwestern University, the Council of Graduate Schools, and the Office of Research Integrity of the US Department of Health and Human Services have announced a conference, "The Role of Research Integrity in Promoting Excellence: Tools for College and University Leaders," to be held May 22-23, 2019, in Chicago. The conference will challenge participating institutions to question the strength of their culture of academic and research integrity.  Sessions will provide information and examples of how to assess institutional climate around issues of academic and research integrity and how to respond to the potential risks that may be identified.  The conference will feature as speakers graduate deans and vice presidents for research who are experts in building a culture of integrity.
Information sought on heart failure classifications and phenotyping
The National Heart Lung  and Blood Institute has released a Request for Information inviting comments and suggestions on the potential development of a Challenge Prize for Heart Failure Phenotyping.  Feedback is solicited on scientific gaps, unmet medical needs, and future prospects in heart failure classification or subphenotyping schemes, as well as the feasibility of initiating a challenge prize competition to reward advances in heart failure classification systems.  Responses are sought from stakeholders throughout the scientific research community and the general public and must be submitted electronically to the RFI webpage by May 15, 2019.

Residential courses on lipid disorders in the MENA region
The International Atherosclerosis Society and the Oman Society for Lipid & Atherosclerosis offered the fifth in their course series on "Lipid Metabolism and Cardiovascular Risk" in Muscat, Oman, on February 8-11, 2019.  This series of residential courses aims to increase the knowledge and experience of early- to mid-career English-speaking clinicians practicing in the Middle East and North Africa region and interested in the management of lipid disorders.  Information on the scientific program, faculty, and participants in the 2019 course, as well as presentation slide libraries, are available online.
