Progress in Coursework, Membership

Posted by Daniel Kimbel on March 01, 2012 | SRF Education

Last month, the Academic Initiative took an early and important step towards the completion of its first online course: we held our first filming, recording a lecture by Dr. Judith Campisi. This will be the first of nine guest lectures we get on video, each of which will be delivered by a well-known and experienced scientist. When we have completed the course, we will make all of the lectures freely available on our website.

The Academic Initiative has been progressing as an organization, as well. Our membership grew considerably in January, and that rapid growth has continued in February. New committees are forming, our older committees are growing, and we are beginning new literature review and bench projects. In all, we're expanding at the best rate we could reasonably hope to.
