NIH: "Call Me!"

After Writedit at Medical Writing, Editing and Grantsmanship criticized the National Center for Research Resources Task Force's "straw model" of proposed re-locations for NCRR projects and the National Institutes of Health's request for users' comments, the agency this week announced conference calls in which stakeholder communities can voice their opinions on the matter. NIH invites users to "join any of the discussions that may be relevant to you to share your comments and ask questions," according to its Feedback site. Complete call schedule and dial-in information is available here.
