Weekly Round-up #147
Weekly Round-up #147 has all the usual updates about job vacancies, new funding calls and recent publications relevant to VALIDATE members - and this week is Outreach Week at VALIDATE and you can still get involved by telling us about any interesting public engagement you have carried out recently.
VALIDATE for Schools!
Earlier today, over 200 students in schools around the UK joined VALIDATE members Prof Helen McShane and Dr Rachel Tanner on Microsoft Teams for the first VALIDATE for Schools event. Helen and Rachel talked about their careers, TB, animal testing and sweaty t-shirts. They also responded to some fantastic questions from the students on subjects that ranged from scientist salaries to CRISPR. The video will be available on YouTube very soon.
This will be the first of many VALIDATE for Schools talks. If you wish to host a similar event for schools near you, whether face to face or via the internet, VALIDATE can help so get in touch - firstname.lastname@example.org.
