Facilitator's note, May 7

Dear Life Sciences Supermind,

Thank you so much to everyone who has contributed to the platform! We have a few exciting updates we would like to make all of you aware of:

New Challenge Area
While the Life Sciences Supermind is future-focused, thanks to the thoughtful suggestion of several of our Supermind participants, we decided to add a 6th category to our exercise: Ending the Current Pandemic: India and Beyond. We hope you will contribute your energy and creativity toward ideas that can go toward managing the current pandemic, including strategies to address the urgent needs in critical areas such as India, along with thoughts regarding how best to mitigate the effects of the likely additional outbreaks that will occur around the world in the coming months and years.

Head over to the new challenge area page to dig deeper into this topic.

Synchronous Super Sessions
Remember to sign up for our Super Sessions – the first of which is this upcoming Tuesday!
