Welcome to PHAVES!
We've heard from many of you that you're missing out on hearing about each other's phage work, and that you already miss talking to your fellow phage researchers and developers! So we're planning a series of virtual phage events for 2020 we're calling PHAVES.
We'll be experimenting with a range of formats, including seminars, flash talks, interviews, panels and more! Plus, we'll be incorporating opportunities to meet and chat with other phage enthusiasts, so bring your video-on attire!
Event recordings: Provided speakers give their consent, events will be recorded and shared here after the fact. (Speakers, let us know anytime if this will be an issue for you).
Event summaries will be written up and published in Capsid & Tail, our weekly newsletter. Sign up to receive it here: https://phage.directory/capsid
Subscribe to our PHAVES Events Series
Our events occur approximately every two weeks, and we will email you the details the day of the event. Remembering to sign up for every event can get tedious, so you can just sign up here if you'd like to get updates for every event! (If it gets to be too much, unsubscribing is easy).
Once you're signed up, event details will be sent the day of each event.
State of Phage Survey
In celebration of our 100th issue of Capsid & Tail, we launched a survey called State of Phage 2020!
We created this survey to help us all better understand the phage research community globally, including what kind of phages people are collecting, what methods they're using, and more. If you work with phages, please fill it out! We'll compile and share the results in Capsid & Tail in 2021, and repeat the survey annually so we can all follow and share our community's exciting growth over time.
Oh, and don't forget to share the link with your phage friends! https://survey.phage.directory
Present, or suggest a speaker, topic!
Do you have a topic in mind or a person you'd love to hear from? (Eg. I'd like to hear Betty Kutter give an overview of the history of phage therapy; or, I'd like to hear phage therapy biotech companies discuss how they're designing their clinical trials).
