NIH Lambda Lunch Meetings

Subject: lambda lunch update and WALS nomination

Jan. 16th (today) is the deadline for WALS nominations.  On behalf of lambda lunch, I have submitted a nomination for Carol Gross, our top vote getter.  Not that far behind were: Dianne Newman, Bob Sauer, Roberto Kolter, and Olaf Schneewind.  If you want to send in a nomination for any of these people on behalf of lambda lunch, please do so ASAP (I would guess the web site will still be open for a day or so), and let me know.  You can say that they were strongly supported by lambda lunch.

*Regular lambda lunch at 11:00 AM in Bldg 37, Rm 6107/6041. To schedule seminars, contact Susan Gottesman. To meet with an outside speaker, contact the person whose name is in parentheses.

If you're at NIH you can join the mailing list in either of the following ways.  (1) Send the message "SUBSCRIBE LAMBDA_LUNCH-L 'your name'" from the computer where you usually receive mail to LISTSERV@LIST.NIH.GOV. Replace 'your name' by your first and last names; or (2) go to http://list.nih.gov/, browse the lists to find Lambda_Lunch-L, and follow the instructions.  If you're not at NIH, contact mailto:susang@helix.nih.gov. Susan Gottesman. This schedule is also available at  http://www.lecb.ncifcrf.gov//lambda.html.
