The days are running together, but I have my HuBMAP meetings to keep me on track! However, I feel like there are important things coming up that I need to remember to do. Can you give me a few hints so I don’t miss anything in all the HuBMAP hubbub?
Wait, What Day Is It?
Dear Chronologically Challenged,
There is a lot going on in the next couple weeks, so to clear up the hubbub, here is a simple list:
The NIH-HCA Joint Meeting will be from 9:30am – 4:30pm, Monday, March 30 and 10:00am – 4:30pm Tuesday, March 31
Please take note of the different starting times – 9:30 on Monday, 10:00 on Tuesday.
If you registered for the meeting, you should have received an email from firstname.lastname@example.org entitled “NIH-HCA Joint Meeting” on March 19 and March 23.
In that email you are asked to please click the link to receive a Zoom ID, click another link to register for KI Storm, and a third link to say which of the breakout sessions you would like to attend.
If you have not done so, please do so now!
In other news, the members of the HIVE will be busy little bees (see what I did there?) as their quarterly progress reports are due on March 31, and their Year 3 renewal proposals are due on April 20!
Also, the RTI proposals are due April 1st, and that’s no fooling!
The HIVE-IEC has put together a survey pertaining to internal communications. Please fill out the survey when you have a spare moment! The survey closes on April 3.
We are tracking the various stages of consortium publications, from idea to published at this link. Don't forget to check in and update the tracker with any status updates or new publications that you and your team have in the works.
