We started off the quarter with an event focusing on the U.S. government shutdown and its effects on science. We spoke about the impacts on scientists, the NIH, FDA inspections, the environment, and more!
We then had a policy position brainstorm to decide which positions to focus on and which lawmakers to interact with.
Finally, we had an effect aimed at helping graduate students and postdoctoral scholars transition to a career in science policy.
