Hello all, this is your president speaking. We’re now well into October, and I thought that this would be a good time to tell everybody about recent and upcoming TSF and GCT events. First of all, I’d like to thank everyone who came out for our welcome back party, and especially thank Fred for hosting the party at his house. Additionally, thanks to everyone who was able to attend the TSF journal club, alumni speaker, and the Dr. Vore lunch. Rest assured that we’ll have additional lunch/discussion opportunities with our director over the next semester.
On Friday, October 29th we’ll be having a TSF Halloween party. As the date approaches, we’ll be sending out e-mails with more information. From November 14th to the 17th UK will be hosting the 5th annual NIEHS Metal Conference, and on November 19th the department will host the John P. Wyatt Symposium on Environmental Health and Disease. As always, TSF will continue to have journal club meetings, as well as social events, throughout the rest of the semester – keep an eye on that calendar!
So, exciting times! I hope that you all can make it out to some, or all, of these events – see you there!
