- Final Friday Fling, May 5, 2006
The regular BMS Friday seminar series winds up with a bang this week, as students researchers in the BMS labs
take the stage and present their results for all to see. We'll kick off at the usual time (2 pm) in the usual
place (Copernicus 231) with short seminars by Frank Soucy and Ania Bolcun. Next, departmental awards will be...
well, awarded, followed by a dessert party. Kathy says she's got an even better recipe for cookies than her
classic version. Please join us
for a last get-together before finals, graduation, and goodbye!
