The NIGMS Green Team (GT) works to encourage environmentally responsible practices by increasing awareness of recycling options, promoting reusable products, and suggesting methods for reducing waste.
We are always looking for new and more effective ways to help our IC become more “green.” Feel free to email the co-chairs at the addresses below (click on their names) or attend one of our meetings.
