Congratulations goes out to Nathan Kelley in the He lab on successfully defending his Ph.D. dissertation, “Characterization of the Novel NLRP10 Inflammasome”.  We wish him all the best! 

Dr. Eric Sebzda will present a seminar, entitled “An Ultra-exciting seminar on Peripheral Tolerance Starring a Very Boring Lymphocyte”, on Wednesday, March 15, 2023, 12:00 – 1:00 p.m., at  the CS Mott Center, 275 East Hancock St.  

Important Message from School of Medicine’s Facilities Manager, Krista Mitchell: 

In preparation for our final city inspection on the Scott Hall elevators, a pre-test to check the elevator’s reaction to the fire alarm and all the fire system components within the elevators will take place on Tuesday, March 14 from 6:00 AM - 10:00 AM.  While this testing is taking place, one or two elevators at a time will be taken off line and tested with the fire alarm system.  During this time there will be visual and audible fire alarms activated for short periods.  It will not be necessary to leave the building when these alarms are activated. 

Testing should be completed by 10:00 AM.  At that time, the elevators and fire alarm will be returned to normal function. 

Please accept our apology for any inconvenience this may cause, but we thank you for your patience and understanding during this vital pre-test period.
