"Our Scientists are Working on It"
I deas Requested!
As you may have seen on the rotating flat screens throughout the hospital, Brigham Health has been executing a new research campaign since January of 2019. They are looking for new and exciting material to use for their “ Our Scientists are Working on It ” series.  

They need short, punchy, eye-catching one-liners about BWH research, highlighting the translational impact of their work .

Ex. " Can viruses be used to treat brain cancer? Our scientists are working on it "

Every suggestion posted will highlight the specific investigators working on the issue, so this is nice opportunity to promote our research faculty and the transformative work they are doing .

Please reach out to Claire O'Brien with any questions you may have!
Post-doc Peer-to-Peer Mentoring Program
Do you know any post-docs who may be interested in a peer-to-peer mentoring program to help broaden their network, learn about the US funding system and options for career paths, improve their biosketch and CV, and more? BWH has a post-doc mentoring circles program to do exactly this! 

Junior post-docs could participate in this program as mentees and more senior post-docs would be eligible as mentors. Registrations for mentees and mentors are currently open. More information on the program and application forms can be found here.

The registration deadline is August 16, 2019.
