The division is excited to announce two ways in which we are improving transparency and communication. The first is a bi-annual newsletter that can be found here. In this newsletter you can expect to read in-depth articles about the science, workshops, and tremendous outreach that you and your colleagues have been able to accomplish. In addition, the newsletter will include introductions to new program directors and announce opportunities such as internships and fellowships that may be useful for students.
The second communication mechanism is the MCB blog. The blog will feature short weekly posts that will cover a range of topics including MCB at your meeting, tips for successful applications, deep dives into MCB funding numbers, and other timely news. Our vision is that the blog can be a space for two-way dialogue. We invite you to subscribe at the bottom of the page, leave comments, and even use the feedback form to suggest blog content that you want to see in the future.
As we work to improve our communications with you, we hope that you will become regular readers of the blog and will share your honest feedback with us.
