Dear Biology Alumni,

We’re back with a new and improved BU Biology Alumni Newsletter, Summer 2013 edition! Please take a minute to catch up on the latest news from the BU Biology Department — you’ll find a range of stories to explore online, but let me highlight just a few things here:

  • First, please save the date! You are invited to the first annual Biology Department Alumni Reception on Friday, October 25, 2013 during BU’s Alumni Weekend. Please join us for a complimentary happy hour and reconnect with our faculty and your fellow alumni.  We hope to see you there!
  • The online newsletter includes stories about our current research, ranging from cancer biology to global change, as well as news about our outstanding students and faculty. There’s lots to read, but don’t miss the recent CAS Magazine feature entitled Biology 3.0, which highlights the work of three of our professors.
  • I would also like to ask for your support of the Thomas H. Kunz Fund in Biology, which was recently established to honor our friend and colleague. Please read more about the effort here and then make a contribution to help us reach our initial $100,000 goal.
  • Finally, after you’ve had a change to explore the latest news about BU Biology, take a minute to connect via Facebook or LinkedIn and/or give us some feedback. We are interested to know what you would like to see in future newsletters and also to hear what you are doing now with your Biology degree.

Best wishes for rest of the summer and hope to see you in October!

Michael Sorenson
Chair, Department of Biology
