From the Liaison-Dr. Patricia Thibodeau

"Looking towards the Fall"
I hope everyone is enjoying their summer! I’m finally getting together with other people outside, which has been a very welcomed change of pace. While RI C-AIM institutions release their re-opening plans for the Fall, it still means most students are limited in their ability to get into the lab.

I’m trying to keep motivated and maintain productivity while continuing to work from my dining room table for the fifth month in a row. Some RI C-AIM lab groups are getting a breath of fresh air with SURF students beginning their research this month (welcome!) We also have new postdocs joining C-AIM this summer (check out the highlight!), and the 2020 Vis-a-Thon is continuing to get underway with some projects already completed.

This Thursday and Friday is also the RI C-AIM Career Development Summer Intensive, so I hope you’ll join me in participating! As always, feel free to reach out to me if you need someone to bounce ideas off in your projects, or life!

To keep all our students in our research community connected, RI C-AIM is hosting monthly, informal virtual meetings via WebEx. We will have a lead speaker on various topics of discussion. The next get-together will happen on Thursday, August 13 at 4 p.m.
We want to hear from you!

Let us know more about your cool RI C-AIM research and how your routines have changed as a result of COVID-19, and we will share it via social media, our newsletters and website. For more info, contact RI C-AIM Communications Coordinator Shaun Kirby at [email protected]
