VPA Events & News

VPA Weekly Email

April 10, 2017

Hello postdocs!

 

Announcements:

We are proud to announce the launch of the new VPA website! This is just the beginning so expect to see a lot more content and information in the near future. 

If you have any suggestions or changes you'd like to see to the website, please contact Mohit Chadha (mohit.chadha@vanderbilt.edu).

 

New! VPA Running Group 
Are you stuck in the lab and struggling to find time to exercise?
Have you though about running but could not muster enough motivation?
Or perhaps you are a runner and would like to make it a social activity?
If you answered yes to any of these then read on.
A few of us at the VPA would like to start organized but informal group runs and are trying to determine interest. We would meet few times a week (come as often as you like) to run, get fitter and have fun in the process. We would set goals for things like distance, speed, or preparing for a competition. 
Please take a moment to fill out this very short survey which should take no more than a minute or two. Your responses will determine if we can get going!


Events this month:
4/19 10am VPA&SR Symposium

The Symposium Schedule can now be found online. You can also find details about the Breakout Session speakers.The talks held in Light Hall 208 are open to anyone who is interested. This year we are trying "Lightning Round" style talks: very short directed toward a general audience. Come hear about exciting research going on at Vanderbilt!
