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

NIH Lambda Lunch Meetings

An NIH Special Interest Group.

From: Susan Gottesman [gottesms@HELIX.NIH.GOV]
Subject: Lambda lunch update, Nov 17

Students, postdocs, postbacs: If you are interested in having lunch
with John Mekalanos on Dec. 10th, send me your name/lab/contact
information.  Box lunches are provided.  There is a limit of 11 people,
and if we exceed that, I will try to spread the spots between
labs/institutes.   Your participation will be confirmed early on the
week of Dec. 10th.  Meetings with PIs will also be arranged, once I
know his travel arrangements/time constraints, but let me know if you
would like to meet with him (and when you are available).
