- IACUC Training
What's an iacuc? It's short for the Institutional Animal Care and Use Council, the group responsible for
overseeing all experiments using vertebrate animals at CCSU. They arrange yearly training sessions on animal
care. Attendance is required for faculty and students working with vertebrate animals in their research and
teaching. This year, the training will be March 10 from 3-4 pm; the location (a room in Copernicus Hall) will
be identified soon. If you think you need, or would like, this training, talk to one of the BMS faculty.

- BMS is Getting Bigger!
To help take care of the all students joining the BMS department, we’ve gotten permission to hire a new faculty
member, who will begin teaching and research this Fall. We’re in the late stages of the hiring process, and now we
need student input before we make our final choice. Over the next three weeks, several candidates will be coming
to Central to meet BMS faculty and students. Each candidate will meet with students at 1:00 pm, and give a
research seminar at 2:00. The first candidate is coming on Monday, February 28, meeting with students in
NC 311, and giving a seminar in NC 155. Schedule information for the other candidates will appear here soon; for
details of the individual candidates, see the flyers posted around Copernicus. Students: get involved in
this decision! This person will be one of your instructors and research mentors, and you should take advantage
of this chance to influence your future.

- ECSC at CCSU!
This year’s Eastern Colleges Science Conference is being hosted by CCSU on April 8-9. The schedule and details
are available at the ECSC website. The Conference will be an opportunity for students to present the results of
their independent research projects, or just come and see presentations by students from Central and dozens of
other colleges in the Northeast. If you want to attend, please see Jim Mulrooney for registration details. We’re
also beginning to plan the staffing for this event, which will depend on lots of student volunteers. Students can
get involved through the Biology
Club, or by contacting any of the CCSU science faculty.
