Petri Dishes: From the Immediate Past-Director: January 2020 Issue

A Note From the Immediate Past-Director

The BRI kicked off the new year by continuing to host events for our researchers, provide funding opportunities, and help support investigators. We hosted many events, including our recurring events; Carrie Hall was at full capacity for the January Research Connection LIVE Lunch featuring an overview of the Partners Biobank. I’m excited to share that the BRI will not be providing single-use plastic waters anymore, so next time you attend one of our events be sure to bring your own water bottle!
Although Discover Brigham 2020 is nearly a year away, the Call for Sessions and Demos at Discover Brigham in November is already open – see below for more details and instructions on how to submit your ideas.
In the spirit of recognizing the caliber of our research, kudos to the five Brigham investigators and their teams with papers in the Altmetric top 100 papers of 2019 (see below). Similarly, please enjoy our Research Paper of the Month.
