Town Halls


Thank you for joining us as we launched the first phase of this exciting new initiative supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The Town Halls were a great success thanks to all of the participation from across the US.

What happened at the Town Hall

The purpose of the Town Halls was to help us understand what you consider to be the most interesting or compelling questions that might be tackled by integrating disparate sub-disciplines of biology. We heard from NSF Program Officer Simon Malcomber on this initiative and then broke out into small groups to discuss the questions from the community. Here you can find a list of questions generated at these events and the asynchronous submission mechanism. Hear Simon’s message to the community below.
