Did you miss the last VMS “Building Capacity for a Thriving Research Lab at a PUI (Primarily Undergraduate Institution)“?  We’ve posted the presentations by plenary speakers Rika Anderson (Carleton College) and Terry McGlynn (California State University Dominguez Hills), as well as a variety of other resources identified by meeting participants including online communities with a focus on Science at PUIs.

Mark your calendars for the next virtual meeting “Techniques for Isolating DNA from Tough Samples” on July 9, 2021 (10:30AM – 12:00PM Pacific). This VMS features plenary speaker Jackie Goordial (University of Guelph) who will present “Squeezing DNA from a rock: DNA extractions from low biomass settings”.

The virtual meeting series is held monthly during the first week of each month, with a regular rotation of science workshops and professional development workshops. Each workshop contains about 90 minutes of programming, including plenary presentations by invited speakers, a community building breakout session, and a plenary Q&A session.
