HyperConnect is a virtual one on one meetup event organized in the Indian Life Science Network Discord server by Next Gen Scientists Foundation. To participate in Hyperconnect one must be part of our discord server. You can know more about the server and steps to join here.

Using HyperConnect, we are helping aspiring researchers draft emails to prospective PIs for their summer internships. Registered participants will get 15 minutes with an NGSF member to get feedback on their email drafts using the screenshare feature on Discord. Users are allowed to book only one slot. Repetitive booking will lead to deregistration of the participant. All slots will be booked on first come first serve basis. The event will happen December 4, 2021 from 06:30 to 07:30 PM. Only 12 slots are available after which there will be a waitlist. Depending on the response, we may have more such events in the near future.

Prior to event, find a lab of your interest and draft the email you plan to send to the PI to enquire internship vacancy.

You can use your own format or read the following articles to make a draft email:
