Dear GNOBB members,
I have myself checked and found all the functionality of the website working fine. Some members initially sent their comments but now it’s quiet for the last few days. About use of PayPal, there is hardly any response after 8 members paid their annual dues. Now the new website has become user friendly. Subject to Coordinator’s approval any paid member can comment on any posting, post any exciting news in the field of biotechnology, update his/her CV, pays his/her annual dues and yet the response is appallingly low.
May I appeal to the GNOBB members to come forward with their suggestions for further improvement of the website. As I have repeatedly said through this medium GNOBB is your Website.
There is a further suggestion from my side: Now that we expect to earn some money, I propose to begin with two annual awards be instituted for the best research workers in the field of biotechnology, one from the scientists above 40 and the other from young scientists below 40. We can approach some pharmaceutical firms and Bangladesh Academy of Sciences to give us a grant for this purpose. I invite opinion from the members on this issue and modus operandi including criteria for selection, how the prizes be awarded,
