Call for Contributors to The Canadian Biotechnologist2.0 Blog

May 25, 2012 at 2:35 pm Leave a comment

The Canadian Biotechnologist2.0 Blog is devoted to the productivity of the Canadian biotechnology sector and the fine people who take part in this profession across the country. We are inviting undergraduate and post-graduate students, bench scientists, and technologists to contribute content: posters, tools, research, presentations, articles, white papers, multimedia, music downloads and entertainment, conference announcements, videos, etc.

We are interested in publicizing the work of your lab and the people that work in it. Generally, we are looking for 250-500 word articles on the topic. Participating guest bloggers will gain recognition from the broader community, exposure to job opportunities, and personal exposure from page rankings on Google and other search engines. We are working toward building a broad community across Canadian labs. If you could pass this information along to anyone in your lab who may be interested in being a guest blogger, it would be highly appreciated.

We are also interested in learning about your personal insights on the biotechnology scene. Please take a few moments to answer the following questions so that we may publish your responses with attribution on the blog:
1. Briefly describe your current position and current interests.
2. What path brought you to this point?
3. What projects of interest (that you feel comfortable talking about) are occurring at your lab right now?
4. What trends do you see in the profession of biotechnology in academics and industry?
5. What advice can you give to students entering the field?
6. What blogs and other online sites do you use?
7. One goal of the blog is to introduce our audience to new methods, tools, and career advice. In your opinion, what relevant methods, research techniques, and protocols would help our readers?
8. From a blue-sky perspective, can you comment on the potential for online social networks to promote collaboration in the biotechnology community? Can social networks lead to the creation of new tools?
9. Can you comment of the shift in funding methods in the U.S. and how it will impact funding in Canada?
10. Is there any other content you would recommend, particularly tools that a broad biotechnology life sciences audience would find of interest?.

Cheers!
