Weekly Round-up #123

Along with our usual collection of news and updates, we have an exciting new Summer Seminar to tell you about and an important survey for our members.

VALIDATE Online Summer Seminar - Nonspecific factors in the immunopathogenesis of leishmaniasis

A couple of weeks ago we launched our Online Summer Seminar Series. We are pleased to announce an addition to the programme from leishmaniasis researchers Assoc Prof Hiro Goto and Dr Eduardo Ramos Sanchez at the University of São Paulo. You can find out more and register online.

You can also still register for other upcoming seminars:

VALIDATE Members' Communications and Resources Survey

We would greatly appreciate it if VALIDATE members would participate in a short survey to give us feedback about how we communicate with you and what you think about the resources we offer our members. It should take less than 5 minutes to complete and will help us identify the best ways to keep you up to date and to make VALIDATE as useful to you as possible.



Training Opportunities and Events:

The Training Opportunities and Events pages are regularly updated with the latest events that VALIDATE members will find interesting.

Job Opportunities: 

Our jobs page has an up to date list of roles relevant to our members.


Keep checking our Publications Page for an up to date list of our members' recent publications and email validate@ndm.ox.ac.uk if you have published recently so that we can flag your paper to the community.


Highlights on Twitter this week

This week we have retweeted VALIDATE Member Tushar Shaw who published the first case of melioidosis documented in Gujarat, a news article warning dog owners in France about the dangers of canine leishmaniasis, a photo of the Angorichina Hostel in 1925 where the first TB vaccine in Australia was deployed, and we shared the Oxford Vaccine Group’s video on Typhoid. We also retweeted Write That PhD who have arranged an online Webinar on using Research Design Canvas to plan, progress and finish your PhD and shared 40 tips for thesis writing by Prof Tim Leighton.
