The Microbiology Student Association is hosting a Research Symposium on April 9, 2016 from 9am to 5pm in Kearney Hall, room 112. Admission is free. Researchers from universities in Oregon and Washington will present their work on a wide range of topics.

Dr. Betty Kutter from the Evergreen Phage Lab will deliver her keynote presentation, Characterization and Implementation of Bacteriophages as Natural, Self-Replicating and Self-Limiting Antimicrobials, at 9:15am. There will be a lunch break from 12-1pm and a poster session with refreshments from 4-5pm in the Kearney Hall atrium on the first floor.

This is an excellent opportunity to network and learn about exciting research being done at nearby institutions. Feel free to stay for the entire day or attend specific talks you are interested in. See the attached program for a list of speakers, topics, and presentation times. The talks may be of interest to many science students, not just those interested specifically in microbiology.

Please feel free to contact Emaan Khan at or Vanlena Le at with any questions.

OSU MSA Research Symposium flier April 9

MSA Research Symposium Program

Information Services is pleased to announce Hackathon 1.0: Innovation Unscripted, a one-day event for OSU employees to collaborate, innovate, and build or propose something new for the benefit of OSU. It will take place on Friday, May 6, from 8:30-5, in the Memorial Union.

–          Unlike many hackathons, what you create does not have to be technical (for example, you could design a new process).
–          There will be fun prizes, including one team getting the opportunity to pitch their idea to campus leadership!
–          This will be a day of fun, camaraderie and productivity. What’s not to love?

We hope you’ll join us. Fair warning, though, participation is limited to twelve teams, so register soon! Registration is open from April 1 through 25.

We look forward to seeing you there!
