Campus-Submitted Announcements

Events
1.) CGeMM symposium — Whole Genome Sequencing: From Lab to Clinic
8 a.m. Nov. 12, Kornhauser Library Auditorium, Health Sciences Center
Sequencing technology currently being developed has placed population-level whole-genome sequencing on the near horizon. These advances will provide valuable clinical information and also challenges with respect to how and what data to disseminate to patients. The overall objective is to expose medical professionals to applications and implications of whole-genome sequencing to public health and individual patient management. CME and nursing credits are approved for this program.
Additional Information: Get more information or register. Event sponsor is the Center for Genetics and Molecular Medicine.

2.) PLAN events this week
“Paper Accepted?! Oh No, Now What? Effective Research Presentation Skills,” Nov. 8, noon–2 p.m., Room 105, Houchens Building, Belknap Campus
“Branding Yourself,” Nov. 8, 6–7:30 p.m., Room 105, Houchens Building, Belknap Campus

Miscellaneous
7.) Recycling batteries and light bulbs
Did you know that batteries and light bulbs contain hazardous constituents (such as lead, cadmium and mercury)? Do you know that you should not discard batteries and light bulbs at UofL into the normal trash? Improper disposal of these items can lead to release of these constituents to the environment. UofL DEHS has a program to recycle batteries and light bulbs in compliance with EPA regulations.
Additional Information: Email Cathy Price or visit the physical plant’s recycling page.

8.) Radioactive material Thanksgiving ordering schedule
The last day to order radioactive isotopes will be Friday, Nov. 16, for delivery on Monday, Nov. 19, or Tuesday, Nov. 20. This will ensure that radioactive material will not be delivered while the university is closed for the holiday. We will resume ordering Monday, Nov. 26.
Additional Information: Radiation Safety Office, Sarah Hughes, 852-5231
