- Biology Club Poinsettia Sale!
It is that time of the year again for the Annual Biology Club Poinsettia Sale. The proceeds from this sale each year allow approximately 50
students to attend the Eastern Colleges Science Conference. This conference is one of the oldest undergraduate research conferences in the
country. The students present either poster or platform presentations of original work, and meet about 300 students from other universities--a
highly worthwhile venture. Once again we will be selling red and white poinsettias. Tentative delivery date will be during the last week of
classes (Dec 5-8). The cost is $16 for each plant. To order poinsettias simply send an email to Jim Mulrooney (email@example.com) with
the number of red and/or white poinsettias you would like. Please be sure to include your office phone, room and building for delivery, or
please indicate if you prefer to pick them up at Copernicus Hall instead. If you have any questions please feel free to contact Jim.

- New BMS Courses Offered, Spring 2006
The BMS Department is pleased to offer three new courses this Spring:
(Posted November 7, 2005)
- BMS 320, Histology, is a two-credit
laboratory, focusing on...well, histology. The instructors, Cheryl Watson
and Jim Mulrooney, are eager to show you their new tissue embedding/sectioning and fancy microscopy setup.
- BMS 414, Pharmacology, Physiology, and Drug Development, is a three-credit lecture course
taught by Cheryl Watson and Barry Hoopengardner. They will focus on
pharmacology of the nervous and cardiovascular systems, and on physiological
mechanisms underlying drug action.
- BMS 490/540, Topics in BMS: RNA Modification, is a three-credit offering
of the ever-changing "Topics" course for graduate students and advanced
undergraduates. The "New Guy" (Barry) will discuss one of the topics he
knows best, the wacky world of post-transcriptional modification. You
weren't actually lied to in BMS 201, but things are a great deal more
complicated (and interesting!) than you thought.
