ribs. A man sits at a table holding a knife and fork and

NIH Lambda Lunch Meetings

An NIH Special Interest Group.

Date: Tue, 20 Nov 2012 09:27:10 -0500
From: Susan Gottesman 
Subject: Lambda lunch update, post-Thanksgiving

Lambda lunch update: 11/20/12
     It is time once again to nominate speakers for the WALs series.
I'll collect names  between now  and Dec. 3rd, and then send around a
ballot.  So - send in your suggestions (and a couple of sentences
about why they would be good).  This year's lambda lunch-sponsored
speaker is Margaret McFall-Ngai.  Keep in mind that speakers should be
appropriate for the larger NIH community.  Final nominations are due
Dec. 14th if you want to nominate independently of lambda lunch.
