2020 in Review: The Good Parts!

While we've all been very aware of the not-so-good parts of last year, we are proud of the achievements of our community members and wanted to aggregate their diverse accomplishments and share them with our community. Please join us in congratulating these fellows for publications and awards last year!

New Newsletter Out Now!

Please check out our newest newsletter, which focuses on demystifying the major events affecting postdocs on visas. Inside, you will find interviews with immigration law experts and conversations with our international colleagues. Our aim was to provide a resource that can explain major immigration challenges facing members of our community, and to outline steps that can be taken to address them moving forward.

Virtual Scientific Event Support

Are you interested in a virtual scientific event or career development course, but are daunted by the fee?

The PDA will fund up to $100 toward your registration fees!

Please submit an application by emailing postdoc@childrens.harvard.edu with the following information:

  • full name and lab
  • title of the course
  • date of the event (must be scheduled between April 2020 and December 2020)
  • four to five lines about what motivates you to attend this course, and how it helps your career

We will hold a raffle to select winners (the number of winners will depend upon the total cost of events)


We are busy planning a very exciting slate of events for the new year. We look forward to seeing you there. And, with great vaccine-related news, we are hopeful that we will be able to see you in person one day soon!
