It’s time to take a deep breath…See lists of events and jobs

I don’t know about you but I’ve been distracted by the past week’s events, including the political races and the Aurora massacre. As a result I don’t have a blog to share this week. I suggest that we all try to make the coming week a more sensible one and find time to smell the roses!

Please find below the highlights of this coming week’s events. You can tune into BioCentury TV Today and hear about handling of leaks at the FDA, learn about X-ray imaging with minimum radiation at the Bio2Device Group meeting, or attend an East Bay AWIS resume session with peers helping each other among others. You can download the full details of events through Dec. in the list Audrey’s Picks and see the latest Jobs that Crossed My Desk Through July 23 by right clicking on the highlighted titles.
