Carolina Biosciences Alumni Reunion and Symposia slated for May 16 and 17

The School of Medicine Office of Graduate Education and the Biological Biomedical Sciences Program are sponsoring a reunion for biosciences graduate alumni from 14 member PhD programs from the School of Medicine, College of Arts and Sciences, School of Pharmacy, and School of Dentistry.

The School of Medicine Office of Graduate Education (OGE) and the Biological Biomedical Sciences Program (BBSP) are sponsoring a campus wide reunion for biosciences graduate alumni on May 16 and 17, 2013. The 14 BBSP member PhD programs, including bioscience programs in the College of Arts and Sciences, School of Medicine, School of Pharmacy and School of Dentistry, are inviting alumni back for reunion activities on May 16.

On May 17, the OGE is sponsoring campus wide activities such as an alumni networking event for current biosciences graduate students, and a scientific symposium open to faculty, staff, students and alumni.  There also will be an afternoon symposium open to the public focusing on personalized medicine.

In conjunction with the event the OGE is sponsoring an Art of Science competition open to any UNC staff, student or faculty member.  Additionally, graduate students have organized a 5K run and a science symposium for alumni and members of the local community which will be held on Saturday May 18th.

We hope everyone in the UNC biosciences community can join us to celebrate graduate training at UNC, past and present.  For more information about the Alumni Reunion event, to register to attend a session or to find out about the Art of Science Competition please visit our website at http://biosciencesreunion.web.unc.edu/.  Questions and comments should be sent to Anna O’Connell at aboconnell@unc.edu.
