Facilitator’s note, May 17
Dear Life Sciences Supermind,
Many thanks for your contributions during the first three weeks! We received 119 contributions, 124 comments, and 96 supports. Great work everyone!
During this week, our team will be categorizing the contributions received so far, in preparation for next week. Then you’ll be invited to vote on the categories you believe have the greatest potential to transform the institutions, processes, policies, and tools we use across the life sciences.
In a new area of the site, called Last Call for Contributions, you can contribute any ideas that occur to you this week. We encourage you to continue submitting ideas, especially if you haven’t yet had a chance yet to participate! This area is also the space for submitting ideas developed during the synchronous Super Sessions. It will close on Friday, May 21 at 11:59 pm Eastern US time. Contributions submitted to this part of the site will be categorized along with all of the others prior to the start of voting.
You can also still comment on and support submissions made before the May 16 deadline in the six original subject domains.
We’ll be in touch later in the week with more information about the voting phase.
Thank you again so much for your continued energy and activity on the platform!
