Editor's Letter: Spring Forward

Spring came late this year to HHMI headquarters in Maryland. But once here, it was glorious: the redbuds and azaleas zinged with pinks and purples, and the robins arrived in legions. At least 45 dotted the ground in my neighborhood park one recent morning. Quite a sight—even my dog took notice.

Not to rush us through this gentle season, but as summer edges near I want to take a moment to remind you that the next issue of the Bulletin will arrive in the fall. That’s right, the Bulletin is on a new publication schedule, coming out three times a year—fall, winter, and spring.

This doesn’t mean the Bulletin will be idle, however. We’ll be updating the website with fresh content over the summer. Look for additions to our structural biology feature, for example, reporting late-breaking technological advances—including a new kind of camera that could change views on crystallizing proteins. You’ll find other stories from our researchers as well. After all, scientific discovery doesn’t take a vacation!

Join us online this summer, and we’ll see you again in print—and on the Web and iPad—come September.
