VTPP Science Friday conversations continue to be stimulating and helping develop more interactions. Faculty are encouraged to attend these important VTPP research-science friday and mission-focused discussions. The next Science Friday discussions are scheduled via Zoom for Thursday 8:30AM, July 1 and Thursday July 15. Faculty are encouraged to initiate similar interactions and discussions. If you have specific interests in leading any Science Friday discussion/topic or have specific aims to outline or develop, just let Dr. Suva know and come present and stimulate the conversation. Also, as faculty receive study section reviews, please share with Dr. Suva for subsequent discussion at Science Friday regarding response to reviewer concerns.

VTPP Research Infrastructure

VTPP continues collecting details of the major equipment and technical capabilities that exist in VTPP research laboratories.

This effort will develop a framework to support VTPP investigators identify skills and equipment resources in VTPP. By identifying VTPP resources these can be leveraged multi-investigator grant applications, but also help identify where we may lack important equipment. Current resources information is available on our VTPP website. If you have not done so, please send DH your most recent grant resources page so we can continue to compile the information.
