The 10/14 session was another success. Attendance was again even higher than expected. Don’t worry, we’re working on getting more food for future events (I don’t think anyone went hungry, but some people only got one slice). We’ve gotten some mixed feedback about the pizza in the middle format. We’ve decided to keep this format for at least a few more weeks and then maybe test out having pizza at the end to see which works better.
As promised, here are the links to the tools discussed in the first talk by Anastasia Baryshnikova:
In other news, you will now get Two Think & Drinks in a Row! Due to scheduling conflicts we had to push the 10/7 meeting back to 10/14. However, the next Think & Drink will be Wednesday 10/21 at 4:30PM as planned. Next week we will hear from Monica Skoge from the Gregor Lab will tell us how Dictyostelium sense and remember complex chemotactic cues and Amir Haji-Akbari from the Debenedetti lab who will tell us about using forward flux sampling to understand nucleation rates.
ICAhN Think & Drink got off to a great start on 9/23 with two excellent talks, great questions, and attendance surpassing expectations. We would like to thank everyone who showed up and participated. We hope to see you all there again on 10/14 for another pair of exciting talks, this time from Anastasia Baryshnikova (LSI Fellow) and Molly Schumer (Andolfatto lab).
The schedule for the 2015-2016 academic year is set and we have an exciting lineup featuring researchers with a wide array of backgrounds and interests (see the calendar page for more details).
The first ever ICAhN Think & Drink will be held on
Wednesday September 23 at 4:30PM in CIL 101!
Arjun Krishnan will tell us about how to use genomic data to understand complex diseases and make important discoveries and Nicholas Treen will explain how the temporal regulation of a single gene can explain the evolution of tailless in multiple independently evolved lineages. See the upcoming speakers page for the talk titles and abstracts.
This is a great opportunity for postdocs and students affiliated with the Lewis-Sigler Institute to present their work to an interdisciplinary group of scientists and a chance for presenters and attendees to get to know institute labs outside of their usual circles.
Each session will feature two 20 min talks.
First and third Wednesday of every month at 4:30 PM in Icahn 101
FREE FOOD AND BEVERAGES!!!
