Join us for a live Q&A with Bill Lindstaedt, Executive Director, Career Advancement, International and Postdoctoral Services, University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) to discuss the importance of career planning for science trainees in all academic stages and how undergraduate and graduate students, and postdocs can use the Individual Development Plan (IDP) to plan and own their career paths.

This live Q&A is brought to you by iBiology in collaboration with National Research Mentoring Network (NRMN).

Conferences are a key part of science. We attend them to hear about other people’s work and present our own, discuss new ideas, and network. Scientific conferences are also important stepping stones in the career development of trainees. In this live Q&A, presented by iBiology in collaboration with National Research Mentoring Network, panelists will offer practical advice and share their experiences getting the most out of a conference to help you advance your career.

Join us July 21, 2016 from 2:00-3:00pm / 11:00am-12:00pm!

Numerous challenges, such as an increase in competition for funding, face the US biomedical workforce and threaten to undermine the progress of the research enterprise. Dr. Ronald Germain (NIAID), a thought leader in the scientific community, links many of these issues to how the NIH funds biomedical research. He proposed, both in a Cell paper and an iBiology talk, to replace the R01 grant system with one that supports individuals, not projects, and holds the recipients accountable through retrospective review. He argues that a system like this “would permit creative, unfettered research by new investigators, better tie ongoing research contributions to continued funding, and help match the number of investigators seeking support with available funds.” His proposal is influenced by the successful funding programs of the NIH Intramural Program and the HHMI. 

Join us on Tuesday October 20th, 2015 for a live Q&A with Dr. Ronald Germain to talk about the need to reform the NIH R01 grant system and to dive deeper into his “person-not-project”-based proposal. Dr. Ronald Germain is chief of the Lymphocyte Biology Section and Laboratory of Systems Biology at the NIAID (NIH). The event will be moderated by Dr. Ron Vale, a UCSF professor, HHMI investigator, and founder of iBiology.

The views expressed by Germain are his own and not those of the NIAID, NIH, or DHHS.

Mentoring is essential to improving the success of underrepresented minority (URM) scientists. Join us on Monday October 5th, 2015 to talk about culturally responsive mentoring and the importance of taking into account diverse cultural experiences to establish more effective mentoring relationships. Our esteemed panel of experts will discuss culturally responsive mentoring, why it matters and how it can help diversify the U.S. biomedical workforce.

This live online Q&A will feature Dr. Angela Byars-Winston of the University of Wisconsin-Madison; Dr. Kenneth Gibbs, Jr. of the National Cancer Institute; Dr. Joel Oppenheim of New York University; and Dr. Sonia Zárate of the University of San Diego. The event will be moderated by Dr. Mónica I. Feliú-Mójer, Science Outreach Program Manager for iBiology and Vice-Director for Ciencia Puerto Rico (CienciaPR).

In this new talk, Abby Dernburg (UC Berkeley) explores how homologous pairs of chromosomes come together during meiosis. Her lab studies this question in C. elegans, an excellent model system for observing meiosis and homolog pairing.
