    • Lab outing – afternoon on the Fens– We had a nice picnic on the Fens to celebrate Bianca’s birthday, and to wish her farewell as she headed off to Portugal to start her PhD studies in chemistry. Thai takeout, volleyball, and some much-deserved chill time! Good luck, Bianca!picnic_2010
    • 2010 Fall ACS meeting in Boston — The group presented three posters (photos below) on the TrypDAC (Cheri), TbrPDE (Helen), and TbrAUK (Stefan) programs, and TrypTOR (Josie), and Caitlin gave an excellent talk on the TrypTOR project in the General Med Chem papers on Thursday afternoon. All were well received and garnered attention from a number of people. Great work representing the team!
