The GSC-FelCom Liaison is responsible for attending the monthly GSC and FelCom meetings and keeping FelCom officers and members aware of the events and activities taking place in the NIH graduate student community.


  • FAES Liaison — The Foundation for Advanced Education in the Sciences (FAES) provides educational and professional services in addition to fostering a collegial environment for the NIH scientific community.

In addition, FAES provides us with the Graduate Student Lounge (Building 10, Room 4-3330), a unique space for graduate students to meet, study, and conduct events specific to the NIH graduate community. The FAES liaison of the GSC provides a critical voice for graduate students in the design and implementation of FAES initiatives.
