Dr. Lagally – Winner of 2010 URO Mentorship Award!

In a recognition for his outstanding qualities in mentoring and supporting undergraduate research, we nominated Dr. Lagally for the URO Mentorship Award. Today, we are very happy to announce that he just won the award (got the news from CHBE)! Here is a snippet from the application:

Faced with a disorganized group of undergraduates with widely varying levels of research experience, a competition in a field that was just emerging, and a desperate need for funding and resources in the middle of an economic recession, Dr. Lagally poured himself into the effort and, was able to produce a Gold-medal winning team that has been lauded in the Ubyssey and UBC Reports, as well as honoured before the Board of Governors.

Congratulations again Dr. Lagally!

iGEM Presents at the M&I Seminar Series

Alex Ng and Eric Ma will be presenting at the Microbiology & Immunology seminar series at 4PM, this Friday at LSC3. Come down to make iGEM’s presence known! Socializing over free snacks & drinks (including beer!) will take place after the seminar series. We’ll have some organization to get people down – please meet Amelia in front of the LSC West entrance (facing CHBE) at 3:50PM, and we’ll all storm in together. If you need directions, please contact Amelia at 604-726-0537 on that day. Hank will be saving seats for everybody. We’ll be going out for dinner together after the seminar, so stick around if you have time!

We’re back with a Gold Medal

Our team has just came back from 2009 iGEM Jamboree. It was a fantastic event! We learned many cool project and ideas from other teams. Also, we were one of THE GOLD MEDAL WINNERS for our team’s hard work. Come out tomorrow to our JC meeting to learn more about our experience!
