News & Events

Below is the schedule for the Year 4 monthly teleconference. The agenda will be similar to our previous format, with some time devoted to Center business and brief updates from attending PIs ~ 30 minutes, and then a more in-depth presentation which will be 1 hour. As previously, they will be held on the 3rd Friday of each month excepting those in which a Face-to-Face meeting is held. However, we would like to change the in-depth presentations to focus on a specific Project or Core each month. Thus, we are assigning each monthly presentation to be coordinated by the designated Project, Core, or CDP lead. The lead will consult with the PI’s on his project/core and designate who will present and how the presentations will be constituted. As previously, we would like to see a mix of senior and junior level presenters each month.
