The BroadMinded Blog aims to provide an interactive forum for the public to learn more about the science, culture and life of the Broad Institute.
The guidelines listed below offer a brief overview of what it means to be a part our new community. As a member of this community, you have the opportunity to “hear” from — and respond to — a variety of contributors throughout this blog. While these voices are integral to the diverse and vibrant culture that permeates our organization, please note that any views expressed are the blog contributors’ alone, and do not necessarily reflect those of the Broad Institute.
First and foremost
Visit often. The Broad is a fast-paced and dynamic place, so we plan to post something new every day (Monday through Friday, and possibly even on weekends.)
Share with others. Like the Broad Institute itself, this blog is a community of people and their ideas. Let us know what you think!
Ask questions. Ultimately, science is about inquiry. If you read something — here or maybe even elsewhere — that you don’t understand, ask us. We plan to feature readers’ questions, and the answers, on a regular basis. Click on firstname.lastname@example.org to send us your questions.
Attack an individual, group or organization. This is a forum for learning, not for airing grievances or slinging insults.
Stray off-topic. When posting your comment, stick to the subject at hand. If you have a question about a related — or unrelated — topic, feel free to send it to us by emailing email@example.com
Seek — or offer — medical advice. Although the Broad is deeply engaged in transforming medicine, we are not a clinical organization. That means we do not treat patients and are unable provide medical counsel.
