The Department of Biochemistry at Vanderbilt University is pleased to announce a special symposium honoring the contributions of Professor Walter Chazin in his scientific career thus far and in honor of his 60th birthday this year.
The aim of the symposium is to bring together the scientific family and friends who have been influenced and inspired by Professor Chazin throughout his career, from his tenure at The Scripps Research Institute through the present at Vanderbilt University, including former students, postdocs, colleagues and collaborators. The symposium will cover topics representing the various scientific chapters in Walter’s structural biology career.
Registration is required for this event.

This is a joint Biomaterials Day event being hosted at Vanderbilt University, and being co-hosted by the University of Kentucky and University of Memphis. This event is sponsored by the Society for Biomaterials and the Vanderbilt University School of Engineering.
The theme of this event, "Synthetic Biology: the Next Horizon in Biomaterials Research?", hopes to bring together regional researchers in both academia and private industry to discuss cutting edge work being performed in the areas of biomaterials and synthetic biology. This is further highlighted by two invited keynote speakers, Joshua Lenoard and Junghae Suh, who work at the junction of this exciting and rapidly developing field.
This event is free to attend for graduate and undergraduate students, professors, and local industry partners, though attendees must register at NashvilleBiomaterialsDay.org. Lunch, refreshments, and a dinner reception will also be provided for event participants.
A fun-filled, joint-friendly aerobic and strength workout in the pool. Non-swimmers are welcome!
Beginner Yoga paced yoga class with a focus on building strength, flexibility, stamina, and balance. Students will learn healthy and healing body alignment in and through yoga poses—breaking poses down so that new or refreshing students can understand how classical yoga postures work and how to implement them in a home practice. Students learn breath awareness and the therapeutic benefits of synching movement with breath. Appropriate for individuals interested in a traditional yoga class, including first time students. Instructors are able to show modifications for each pose and for general health concerns.
An Occupational Health nurse will be roaming VCH 3rd Fl. OR and 4th Fl. NICU from 6 - 10 p.m. on March 6, 2015 to provide immunizations, flu shots, and TB skin tests to Vanderbilt faculty and staff.
