Requested move 4 June 2022[edit]

The following is a closed discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review after discussing it on the closer's talk page. No further edits should be made to this discussion.

The result of the move request was: Moved. Little participation after three relistings, but current discussion is generally in favor of moving the page. CollectiveSolidarity (talk) 22:00, 2 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

(non-admin closure)

BiohubCZ Biohub – If we are not going to use the full name, we should use CZ Biohub as that is how they shorten it themselves. See, for example [1]. They don't refer to themselves as just "Biohub" and I don't think we should either.

Infobox improvements for CZ Biohub[edit]

Hello! My name is Patricia. I work for GMMB, a communications firm that has been contracted by CZ Biohub. As part of my role, I'm here to help improve the organization's Wikipedia page. I have a financial conflict of interest, so I am following Wikipedia's directions for COI editors. I will not edit the organization's page myself and will instead put forward edit requests for independent editors to review.

There are two improvements that I would like to suggest for the Biohub Infobox:

  1. Adding a logo, which you can find on Wikimedia Commons here:
  2. Adding a "Purpose" line, which I've seen in other research institute pages. Per the page content and existing sourcing, the purpose may be listed as: "Working with partner universities, to investigate biology and develop technologies that will lead to new diagnostics and therapies to help cure, prevent, and manage disease."

I'm eager to see the above improvements, or help respond to any questions you may have.

User:ZimZalaBim I spotted your (now completed!) proposal above to change this page's name to CZ Biohub. This change made perfect sense to me, and I thank you for your interest in the organization's page. If you are able to help with my request, I'd be grateful.

  • Inserting the logo and purpose line would be changes done to the article, so as you correctly understand, those changes would have to be done by a non-CoI editor. But proposing a move is something you can do, by listing this request at WP:RM, since it is a matter of starting a discussion and you have already declared your CoI. — Charles Stewart (talk) 14:00, 19 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    Hello, Chalst! To clarify the above, I was thanking an editor who already successfully proposed that the page name be changed from "Biohub" to "Chan Zuckerberg Biobub." So I don't need any help with that, but thank you! While I have you here, would you mind reviewing the infobox updates I requested? As you correctly pointed out, I can't make those changes myself, and you seem like someone with a good grasp of how the review and implementation process works. I would really appreciate any help you could provide. Patricia at GMMB (talk) 17:56, 21 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Name should be "CZ Biohub", as originally proposed by User:ZimZalaBim, not sue why it was changed to "Chan Zuckerberg Biohub" instead. Eccekevin (talk) 18:22, 21 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Since the original motion was to move to CZ Biohub I will move it to such after 7 days if there are no objections. Eccekevin (talk) 04:38, 25 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Organization section draft[edit]

Hello again! I closed the infobox edit request above. Thanks so much to User:Ptrnext for adding the logo to the page! I would now like to ask if any editors would mind reviewing a CZ Biohub Organization draft that I recently uploaded my user page. You can review the full copy by using this link, but I'll summarize briefly here. My aim with the Organization section is to provide details about:

  • What CZ Biohub is, and what it seeks to accomplish
  • The types of medical research projects CZ Biohub is involved in, and how those projects are carried out
  • How the organization coordinates with its university partners
  • How the organization is structured and funded

This draft incorporates and updates some information that is in the current article: most of the History as it stands is actually about the organization, and I've either included or would suggest cutting it. I think this list captures everything that I've tried to include or that I'd suggest simply cutting:

  • Details about CZ Biohub's aims
  • The paragraphs about its key people
    • Please note that I did not include Jennifer Doudna as she is no longer part of the CZ Biohub Advisory Group, so I suggest cutting her information from the page
  • Details about the organization's structure, headquarters etc
  • Information about the institutions and Investigator Program
    • The details about medical research facilities at the universities did not feel relevant, so I didn't include this paragraph and suggest removing it from the page

As User:Eccekevin and User:Chalst have shown some recent interest in strengthening the Biohub article, I'll flag them down here, but obviously any editor is welcome to give feedback or make changes to what I've proposed. If you have thoughts or questions, please reply below. Thanks in advance to anybody who jumps in to help out with this request. Cheers!

Hey there,User:Estateiii! I noticed that you recently updated the CZ Biohub page with some details about Jennifer Doudna's credentials. Thanks for adding that information! Would you have any interest in reviewing the Organization draft I've proposed above? I propose a few other updates to that section there. No worries if not, but I thought it couldn't hurt to ask. Patricia at GMMB (talk) 14:43, 1 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
This generally looks good to me, from scanning the text. Ref 12, used as one of two supporting refs for the claim "Additionally, the organization's technology platform teams develop new technology and tools for biomedical research, and for clinical and public health applications", wouldn't normally qualify as an RS for this claim, but the other souce, ref 9, comes from American City Business Journals, who are Conde Nast partners and therefore I assume reliable. Otherwise the sourcing looks solid. I'll look over this a bit more closely soon. — Charles Stewart (talk) 09:09, 30 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hi, User:Chalst! Thanks for taking a glance at my draft. As you dig in deeper, please let me know if you have any questions or feedback. I'm happy to try to improve sourcing and/or content as needed. Talk soon! Patricia at GMMB (talk) 13:12, 11 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'm removing the request flag from this for now, as I'm going to post a note about this and other content I have to help update this article. Since this provides a good summary of the changes in the Operations, I'm leaving it up for editors' reference. Patricia at GMMB (talk) 22:47, 12 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Section drafts for review[edit]

Hello again! While waiting for editors to review the Organization draft above, I have been researching and writing some other section drafts that I think would also improve the Biohub page. I've decided to close the Organization-specific edit request above, upload all the material I've composed to my user page, and open up a new edit request inviting editors to review that material. Everything I've composed is available for review at this link. Here's a brief description of what you'll find there:

  • A revised History section, which covers the founding of the Biohub and its major milestones
  • The aforementioned Organization section, which includes information about the Biohub's research, funding, structure, and how it accomplishes its aims
  • A Biohub Network section, which has details about a billion-dollar initiative that seeks to improve connectivity among scientific researchers and institutions

My hope is that by grouping these section drafts together, editors can pick and choose what they want to review. Obviously, I would be thrilled if someone were to take a look at all three section drafts, but if anyone was interested in reviewing even just one of them, that would be great. I'm around to field questions or feedback as needed. Thanks! Patricia at GMMB (talk) 22:50, 12 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
