We're busy arranging for the Fall Mixer Event and have selected the place and time:

We will have catered snacks, and free wine and beer!

Our four 2015 GIAR Award Winning Graduate Students will be giving 10 minute presentations on their summer research.   

I hope you can join us to socialize with new and old friends and be inspired by our 2015 Sigma Xi Award winning graduate student researchers!

Kind regards,

Margaret Hanson
