With several IAB folks retiring or transitioning soon, we need to have a series of parties! To start, to celebrate the many years of service of Mike Abels, Ed Debevec, Skye Greer, and KC Love, we've reserved the Moose Creek Pavilion at Pioneer Park (Alaskaland) from noon to 5pm on Friday, 18 June, 2021. Please bring something to grill, drink, side dishes, dogs, frisbees, kids, and friends. It will not rain. See you there!

We have two candidates for separate positions as Research Assistant Professors with IAB in association with TRiM, our Center for Transformative Research in Metabolism that is supported by the NIGMS COBRE award (K. Drew, PI). Dr. Oivind Toien will present "Hibernating black bears as a biomedical research model" via Zoom on Thursday, 17 June at 11:00 a.m. Dr. Anya Goropashnaya will present "Genetic diversity and functional genomics of Northern species" via Zoom on Friday, 18 June at 11:00 a.m. Both will be available for one-on-one discussions with faculty and students Mon-Wed the following week. Please contact them directly for an appointment. There will be an advisory vote by the faculty that follows.
