It is with the sweet sorrow of parting that DORA says goodbye this week to our Program Director, Dr Anna Hatch. Over the past four years Anna has been a essential part of the DORA team. All those who have had the good fortune to interact with her during that time will be aware of the professionalism, imagination, zeal and can-do spirit that she brought to the role. She will be sorely missed at DORA but we wish her every success in her new role as Program Officer, Open Science Strategy at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. We will shortly begin the search for a new Program Director, but in the meantime Program Manager Haley Hazlett will take the reins as interim Program Director.
