RSVP for Duke Basic Science Day 10/12/2010

Thursday, August 26, 2010

Memo from Mary Klotman and Monica Kraft:

We strongly encourage you to attend the upcoming Basic Science Day presentations and events here at Duke on Tuesday, Oct. 12 and ask that you encourage your postdocs and graduate students to attend.

This is a first-of-its-kind event for the School of Medicine, and a chance for basic scientists throughout Duke to connect with people you may know or whom you've wanted to meet – among the 14 presentations on the program (see attached PDF) is a talk by Geoff Pitt, MD, PhD, presenting his work on ion channels, and a keynote by Richard Brennan, PhD, incoming chair of the Department of Biochemistry, titled “How Bugs Escape Drugs.”

It is important for researchers in the Department of Medicine to be well represented at this event and to be seen as active partners at this meeting. We hope to see you there.
