Weekly Round-up #148
Weekly Round-up #148 will be the last of 2020 as Team VALIDATE will be on leave for the next couple of weeks over the UK Christmas break. We wish those who celebrate the season a Merry Christmas and everyone a happy New Year, and we look forward to getting back in touch for what will be a busy 2021. VALIDATE will be back in action on the 4th January.
VALIDATE on YouTube
We have added a few videos to our YouTube Channel, which might make some entertaining viewing over the break.
You can watch last week's brilliant VALIDATE For Schools session by Prof Helen McShane and Dr Rachel Tanner, as well as Dr Julen Tomás-Cortázar's videos about T-cell immunity which he recorded in English, Spanish and Basque. These are all videos aimed at the public so please feel free to share them.
You can find all three VALIDATE Winter Seminars, which are open-access and so can be shared with researchers who might be interested:
You will also find videos from previous VALIDATE Annual Meetings and interviews of some of our members on their thoughts on VALIDATE. If you have your own interesting video you'd like to share, particularly any outreach projects, do let us know and we may be able to host it on our YouTube channel.
