While in Lexington …


… for the recently-started Spring Meet at Keeneland (it really is this pretty), I suggest that you find time to attend the 2013 Naff Symposium at the University of Kentucky. This is an annual event put on by the Dept. of Chemistry and centers on aspects of chemistry and molecular biology. This year’s topic is The Origin of Life, and the line-up of speakers is pretty amazing.

    Prof. Hunt, I went to the first session and the second session and did a write-up on the talks (which I am willing to share with you if you are interested). I found this webpage while searching for notes from Dr. Krishnamurthy’s talk, which I was unable to attend due to a scheduling conflict. If you went to that one and have notes you’re willing to share it would be great! sdmo228@g.uky.edu Thank you!
