Just a quick heads up, the 5th Annual EEMB Graduate Student Symposium is this coming Saturday (Feb 7th).
This is a great, and very efficient, way to find out what grad students actually DO! Unfortunately the schedule isn't online yet but I'm sure it will appear sometime this week.
You are meant to register, but it is free unless you want to attend the dinner. You might even get a free dinner if they still need volunteers (see the registration page).
