Join your fellow graduate students for a healthy dose of hot chocolate and holiday cookie decorating fun! We’ll provide the cookies, decorations, hot chocolate, and marshmallows, and you bring yourself and your creative ideas! For anyone who is less adventurous when it comes to cookie decorating, we’ll have loads of M&M sugar cookies that are ready to eat as well. No registration is necessary, but please bring your UNC One Card to be served.
Are you interested in learning more about a career in science editing? Join us for a Career Networking Lunch with Allyson Evans, PhD, the Senior Editor for the research journal Molecular Cell. After receiving her doctorate in Cell and Developmental Biology from UNC Chapel Hill, Allyson received the Ruth L. Kirschstein NRSA Postdoctoral Fellowship and continued her research on the role of SirT1 in cancer at MIT. She currently edits articles submitted to Molecular Cell, which is a journal that encompasses all of “traditional” molecular biology as well as studies of the molecular interactions and mechanisms that underlie basic cellular processes. She has recently worked with mitochondrial functioning and signaling. If you would like to learn more about a career path in science editing, please bring your questions and join us at the career networking lunch on Wednesday, December 10th.

The Office of Graduate Education in the UNC School of Medicine is pleased to announce that we are the recipient of an NIH Broadening Experiences in Scientific Training (BEST) Award! This signifies the beginning of a new program that we’re calling the Immersion Program to Advance Scientific Training, or ImPACT. You can read more about the program here: http://news.unchealthcare.org/news/2014/october/life-after-dissertation
We would like to invite all biomedical graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to an information session on Thursday, December 11th at 3 pm. We will discuss the ways this program will “ImPACT” you and your training, and we will outline the various program components, which will include broadened workshop offerings, a job shadowing and externship program, and groups called Career Cohorts, which are peer groups centered around career interest area. We encourage you to come to this informal, interactive session and learn about this important initiative and take the opportunity to ask questions about how you can become involved.
