Hello Incoming Biosciences PhD Students!
+
<br>
-
Each year, BioMASS organizes a camping trip the weekend before classes start for incoming PhD students to get away from campus and get to know each other and some current students. The School of Medicine and the Medical Center Alumni Association are partially sponsoring our trip this year from Friday, September 18 through Sunday, September 20 at Big Basin Redwoods State Park. The camping is very simple car camping and we can provide all the necessary supplies (if you prefer to bring your own camping supplies, you may). We will even work out carpooling to make sure that everyone who is interested will be able to come.

In order to register for this wonderful event, you will need to go to the following website [http://www.stanford.edu/%7Emmogri/biomass2009.html http://www.stanford.edu/~mmogri/biomass2009.html] and fill out the web form BEFORE Tuesday, September 1. We are asking everyone to send in a $20 check to reserve a spot on the trip and to help pay for food/equipment for the weekend (the address and information for submitting the check will be emailed to you after registering, and the check must be received by Monday, September 14). The size of the campsite limits the number of people that we can take, and so we recommend that you sign up/send in your deposit early in order to ensure that you get a spot. This weekend is really a great chance to get to know people outside of your program, and a number of students say that they met their core group of friends during this orientation event. Some pictures from last year's camping trip are available [http://biomass.stanford.edu/biomass%20web%20page%202005/pics.html here].

Access is also available to M.D. students and M.S. students in School of Medicine programs. Because the spaces are limited in size, their use is restricted to such students, and faculty, postdoctoral researchers, and staff do not have access.

LKSC 4th Floor

The facilities on the 4th floor include multiple study and conference rooms, lounge areas (including a deck with a beautiful view of the hills and a large-screen, high-definition TV that hopefully will be functional before the start of the World Cup!), a well equipped fitness center, shower rooms, a photocopier, and common computer facilities. Lane Library services will also be available through remote and on-site consultation. Some of these facilities are available now, and others (including the fitness center) will be available soon.

To clarify the rules about access to the LKSC 4th floor: Access is available to all Ph.D. students in the 13 Biosciences programs (including Biology and Biophysics) and in Bioengineering, regardless of whether their dissertation work is being conducted in a School of Medicine laboratory or elsewhere on campus. Access is also available to M.D. students and M.S. students in School of Medicine programs. Because the spaces are limited in size, their use is restricted to such students, and faculty, postdoctoral researchers, and staff do not have access. Similarly, students in other programs such as Chemistry, Physics, other Engineering departments, etc., are NOT eligible to use the spaces unless they are working in a School of Medicine laboratory or there is a special inter-program event to which they have been invited as individuals.

Please note that 4th-floor access requires a special hospital key card card to work the elevator and open the doors. These are being issued (instructions have been sent and will be sent again), but this process will take a while given the large number of cards to process. So please be patient - all will be running smoothly soon.

Use of the 4th floor is a privilege and as such we need all students to follow the Code of Conduct.
