And the Winners Are…

Six hundred and forty runners and walkers participated in Friday’s SHARES Runaround, which marks the 28th consecutive time this annual 3 km race has been held. Justine Owen won the women’s race with a time of 13:18, and, for the fourth year in a row, Dula Parkinson won the men’s race with a time of 9:40. Complete results will be published in The View on Nov. 18, as well as in a couple of weeks on the Runaround website.

Synthetic Biology Seminar
Series Kicks Off Oct. 25

van Oudenaarden

The Synthetic Biology Department’s seminar series launches Oct. 25 with a lecture by MIT’s Alexander van Oudenaarden on noisy feedback regulation in gene networks. The series, which features seven speakers from around the U.S., takes place on Tuesdays at 4 p.m. in Bechtel Hall’s Sibley Auditorium.
