March Madness in Madison!

Congratulations to the MudPhuds
our very own UW MSTP MDPhD intramural basketball team 
that won their first playoff game this past Tuesday! 

Pretty impressive for a team with an average age about 15 years
greater than that of its competition. 

Team members include all-stars such as: 

Jason C. 
Patrick B. 

Rachel L.
Josh L.
Brandon W.
Larenda M.
Dre E. 
Erika S. 

The intramural games are being set up single elimination style, 
just like March Madness, so if you want to show some support for these 
really really ridiculously good looking basketball playing science people, join us at
the SERF at 8:30pm this Tuesday (4/1) 
and be ready to CHEER THEM ON! 

Like this guy; he seems pretty excited.

2) Nab some awesome NIH-mandated ETHICS seminar credits. Today's talk is categorized as discussing conflicts of interest.

3) Snack on some DELICIOUS PIZZA from Madison's very own Glass Nickel.

4) Come catch up with your MSTP BESTIES. You know you miss seeing everyone after a long week of benchwork/studying/meetings/etc.

5) This pug wants you to.
