Validate Summer Seminars 2020

Weekly Round-up #121


Welcome to VALIDATE's 121st  Weekly Round-up. We have an important announcement and the usual collection of news and opportunities for our members!

VALIDATE Summer Seminars 2020

The lock-down has meant that VALIDATE has not been able to organise any face-to-face events. However, we are now excited to announce our 2020 Online Summer Seminars Series! Taking place in June and July 2020, we hope to bring together members from across the world via the power of the internet, and allow researchers to present their findings to the VALIDATE community.

We have scheduled two seminars and hope to add at least one more to the roster soon.

Host your own seminar

If you would like to share your research through the medium of an online seminar, get in touch and pitch an idea – validate@ndm.ox.ac.uk.



Training Opportunities and Events:

Events are still being cancelled and postponed due to the lockdown so there is not much to report:

We keep the Training Opportunities and Events pages updated regularly.

Job Opportunities: 

Our jobs page has details of all the latest roles you may find interesting.

    We update our Publications Page with relevant research papers from our members. If you have any recent publications you'd like to promote, email validate@ndm.ox.ac.uk.


    Highlights on Twitter this week

    We were very busy on Twitter continuing our #HappyBirthdayVALIDATE campaign. On Wednesday, we tweeted our VALID8 interviews with our Network Director Prof Helen McShane and new Affiliate Member Moagi Shaku. On Thursday we highlighted our £800k of pump priming projects and dedicated a thread welcoming some of our newer members including Dr Paramadeep Singh, Shikama Felicien, Olusola Olawale Olaleye, Prof Mario Alberto Flores-Valdez, and Prof Heidi Larson. Also on Thursday, we celebrated our Fellowships by tweeting an infographic about VALIDATE Fellow Dr Rachel Tanner (who then sent a thank you to us). On Friday we shared our new “Why Join VALIDATE” infographic and ended our birthday week by celebrating VALIDATE reaching 800 followers on Twitter! This week we've flagged a Pharma Times interview with Prof Helen McShane and our new pinned tweet includes the "Why Join VALIDATE" infographic. All this and much more @NetworkVALIDATE.
