Dear Friends of HMRI,
As the situation with the coronavirus pandemic continues to evolve, I want to take a moment to share an update:
HMRI is tracking daily information and following guideline provided by Centers for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), and Los Angeles health authorities. With this in mind, the following guidelines are in effect at HMRI until further notice:
- Our emergency/safety team has put in a place a work from home policy for those able to work from home
- Our research and experiments continue. Our laboratory scientists and technicians are working staggered hours in the laboratory to minimize the number of personnel in the laboratories at any given time; they are following social distancing guidelines, working no less than 6 feet apart. They all wear Personal Protective Equipment (lab coats, glasses, gloves) and wash their hands thoroughly after leaving the lab.
We are pleased to be offering our monthly lectures via Zoom webinar presentations! The Bob Mackin Scientific Lecture Series and Researchers Roundtable are scheduled for later in June. If you’d like to receive notifications of these talks, please visit https://hmri.org/hmri-lecture-series/ or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For 66 years, HMRI has been training the Next Generation of Scientists with its Summer Student Internship program. Though modified this summer, this highly regarded program starts on June 15th. Please click here to learn about this summer’s program.
Thank you for visiting our website! Stay safe and please check back for periodic updates.
