ALL ACADEMICS AT UCSD
Many of you are aware that the campus has maintained a centralized Biosciences Website for the past few years which was designed primarily as a recruitment tool for graduate students. It has also proven very useful for recruiting new faculty, and as a resource for new and current faculty to keep them informed of the resources and potential collaborations available at UCSD. The Website was originally established by UCSD's Basic Biosciences Steering Committee under the direction of Professor Andy McCammon. The site includes links to the various general campus departments and schools as well as to the research institutions surrounding the campus. At this time, we are updating the site and need your help.
There are several components to the site but the one we especially need your help with is the Areas of Research http://lifesciences.ucsd.edu/biosciresearch.html. Each of the fields of the biosciences has a separate lead-in page with a link to Faculty Websites. While an effort has been made to place faculty in their correct fields by looking at departmental Web pages and descriptions of faculty research interests, it has been impossible to include everyone who should be included in each field. Therefore, we would ask of you at this time to please review the Website http://lifesciences.ucsd.edu/ (formerly http://biosciences.sdsc.edu) and answer the following questions:
1. In which Areas of Research do you want to be included? (Many of you will, of course, go into several areas.)
2. Do you want to be linked--the public will have access?
3. Which URL (Web address) do you want used, a personal address or a lab group address?
Please note that the information on this website, as well as its reliability and utility, is contingent upon the efforts of individual faculty to keep it up-to-date.
Please send this information as soon as possible to Pat Walsh (firstname.lastname@example.org); or you may call her at 858-534-3112. Any comments or suggestions you have to improve the site would be most welcome.
This is a work in progress--any omission or inclusion where inappropriate should not be seen as intentional but rather as an error on the part of the Webmaster. The addresses to remember:
