About Current Exchange
Current Exchange is published and managed by the Meetings & Courses division of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL). It is intended to communicate the science and stories that arise from all of our programs, including the ~30 small conferences and ~30 short courses we run each year in biology and biomedical science. Current Exchange is also a forum for discussions on a number of non-science topics that are covered in our meetings and courses, including career development, scientific communication, and public engagement. The blog features regular posts from Meetings & Courses staff members as well as guest posts from CSHL scientists and trainees. Regular features include:
- A Word From…: Casual, one-on-one discussions with the senior scientists who organize our meetings and training courses. This series provides an insider’s look into meetings and courses at CSHL.
- Visitor of the Week: A weekly feature that spotlights visiting graduate students and postdocs who are on campus for one of our meetings or courses.
- #CSHLCourseLife: A series designed to equip CSHL course applicants and trainees with information they need to prepare for their stay at CSHL. Each post covers different stages in one’s #cshlcourselife – from receiving an acceptance letter to travel options to on-campus activities.
- Repeat Visitor: A special series that celebrates - and shows appreciation to - the scientists who participate in multiple meetings and/or courses in a year.
