Important! This is only the first page of our September 2007 newsletter. To read the entire newsletter, download it.
I hope that our members have
enjoyed this past academic year
and that you were able to get away
from your laboratories for some
rest and relaxation. As illustrated
by the photo on this page, I mixed
business with pleasure in exotic
Thailand! Confronting tigers was
good practice in fine-tuning fundraising
skills. On that note, we
are most pleased that Cubist
Pharmaceuticals joined AB
Biodisk and AdvanDx as our most
recent corporate sponsors at the
Gold Award status. We hope that
other vendors will follow their
lead in supporting our branch.
Our branch continues to be successful due to a team of dedicated clinical microbiologists who comprise the NYC ASM council. Their ideas in planning educational events, composing programs, newsletters & capturing "Kodak Moments" is indeed commendable. In order to continue to present AFFORDABLE programs, we owe a debt of gratitude to our corporate sponsors who underwrite a huge proportion of our expenses. Our symposia fees offer the best buy for the buck in the nation!
The next academic year promises more incredible scientific symposia - I think we have truly raised the bar for the quality of educational opportunities offered in the tri-state area. Please continue to attend our meetings, not only to learn, but to network and exchange ideas and gossip with your colleagues.
We hope that you visit our attractive and informative website www.nycasm.org often for information about upcoming scientific symposia, job opportunities and more!
Note This is only the first page of our September 2007 newsletter. There's more: highlights and photos of the 2007 Spring Annual Meeting; the Trivia Contest Winners; job opportunities; plus info about the Dade Behring Travel Award. To read the entire newsletter, download it.
