Weekly Round-up #145


We are excited to bring you yet another packed VALIDATE Weekly Round-up this week. 


VALIDATE Now Ends November 2021!

In excellent news, VALIDATE has been awarded a six month no-cost extension by our funders, the MRC & BBSRC, due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our activities and projects. With this extension, VALIDATE will be able to support its members until 30 November 2021, which is fantastic.

If you have any thoughts about what activities VALIDATE should host in 2021, or how Team VALIDATE can support you over the next 12 months, get in touch at validate@ndm.ox.ac.uk.

Our December talks are all open access and online, making them accessible from around the world, so do please spread the word to colleagues, collaborators and even school kids - anyone interested in our members and their research is welcome:
