A. [SECOND CHANCE!] (no need to respond to this question if you have alreay done so)
There will be a talk/discussion Friday, February 25, some time between 9AM and 11AM, by David Harper, Chief Scientific Officer of BioControl a subsidiary of Targeted Genetics. He is the founder of his company, which has the goal of targeting bacteriophage to human pathogens. You can read a bit more here about BioControl's approach and Sulakvelidze et al (2001) for a general account of phage therapy.
- Would you be interested and able to attend?
- Do you have a preference as to the format and nature of the encounter? He is willing to give a conventional talk or lead a more informal discussion of biotechnology and your possible roles in it.
B. Any miscellaneous comments, questions, suggestions, concerns?
