OFFICE OF EQUITY, DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION-NEW OFFICE-BUT STILL MAKING STRIDES TO MAKE NIH GREAT
OEODM is launching a new organization, the Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) during the week of March 24th. We have a week of activities planned in an event called EDI Week to help NIHers understand the new office, portfolio, and to experience some of the services they will be providing as EDI. For more information on EDI Week, please visit our current website at http://oeodm.od.nih.gov/
A big part of the launch of EDI involves the creation of a new and dynamic website. Their designers have been working hard on a new site but they need your help. Take 2 minutes to give them some feedback on their new website: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/YRV76BH
Washington, D.C. science policy immersion program
The long-running Washington, D.C. science policy immersion program returns for the summer of 2014. Graduate students in science and engineering who are interested in how decisions about science and innovation funding, regulation and policy are made will benefit from this program. Students with an interest in careers in science policy will also find this to be an excellent opportunity to learn about important fellowship programs and meet current science and innovation policy professionals.

Graduate student seminar series (GS3) - Thursday, March 20, 2014
On March 20th from 1:00-2:00 pm in Bldg. 50, Rm 1227, the Graduate Student Seminar Series (GS3) will be hosting the following speakers:
Yevgeniy Gindin (NCI; Boston University) - "What determines the temporal order of genome replication in human cells?"
Amit Kumar (NIDDK; Johns Hopkins) - "Understanding pathophysiology of Type 2 Diabetes using multi-tissue computational modeling"
This is a great opportunity to hear interesting science and interact with your peers at the NIH. Even if the topics above are outside of your field and/or interests, the speakers really benefit from the anonymous audience feedback forms collected at the end of the talks. Yevgeniy, Amit, and I hope to see strong support from the GPP community on Thursday!
