In case you missed it: "NASA-backed launch for jobless postdocs"

This week members of the Translational Research Institute for Space Health (TRISH) published a letter in Nature regarding a new funding opportunity for 3rd-year fellows who have lost opportunities because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The letter describes the 'Go for Launch' program. See: Worman ZF, Dempsey R, Domingo C, Donoviel D. NASA launch for jobless postdocs. Nature. 2020 Nov;587(7833):197. https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-020-03138-y.
