We were delighted to invite all NIMBioS participants and others who were interested to join us in NIMBioS Interactive on Friday, February 19 from 1 to 5 p.m. EST. This Reunion featured a panel of all of our former Advisory Board Chairs (Alan Hastings, Susan Holmes, Colleen Webb, Raina Robeva, and Jorge Velasco-Hernandez) providing comments about current and future challenges in quantitative biology and a panel of former NIMBioS Postdoctoral Fellows giving their perspectives. There were additional comments from Suzanne Lenhart and Sergey Gavrilets, who have guided NIMBioS education and scientific efforts from the start. This was followed by a large number of breakout rooms to meet individually and in small groups with those from NIMBioS Working Groups, Workshops, and Tutorials, as well as rooms for participants in our postdoctoral, summer research experience, and undergraduate research conference programs.
The Reunion was held in NIMBioS Interactive using the avatar-based Sococo platform that allows participants to move about and meet with others in small groups and individually. Panels were held in Zoom webinar, which was linked from NIMBioS Interactive.
