Come meet your fellow postdocs at the March Brown Bag Lunch Social! Bring your lunch to the small room of the cafeteria in Building B on Monday, March 11th from 12:30-2PM. Hope to see you all there!
It is with great pleasure that we announce our Keynote Speaker for the Postdoctoral Symposium during USU Research Days, Dr. Jonathan Yewdell. Dr. Yewdell's laboratory at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases focuses on the cell biology of recognition of viruses by antibodies and T cells. He also studies the mechanisms that contribute to antigenic drift in influenza A with an emphasis on improving vaccine development. Visit Dr. Yewdell's laboratory webpage.
In addition to his scientific achievements, Dr. Yewdell has exhibited great mentoring to young scientists. His laboratory has graduated 27 postdoctoral fellows, over half of whom have established their own laboratories in academic settings. He wrote a two part essay for Nature Reviews Molecular Cell Biology entitled "How to succeed in science: a concise guide for young biomedical scientists".
NIH is offering a seminar on making the transition from postdoc to faculty on Tue March 5th from 8:30-10AM in Building 1, Wilson Hall. More information and online registration
