We have a Facebook page!

Facebook users can now “like” and follow the PPCP GSA’s Facebook page. Posts on this blog will be shared there, so following us on Facebook is an alternative to following this blog by e-mail, if you want to be updated when there is a new blog post.

(There is also a Facebook “closed group” for members of the PPCP GSA. If you’re a GSA member and are not in this group yet, you can ask another member [with whom you’re friends on Facebook] to add you to the group.)

Also, members, remember that there will be a king cake party at 10:30 AM on Friday (correction from earlier text, which said “tomorrow”), in Life Sciences Annex A465.

Welcome new students!

Seven students began their MS or PhD studies in the LSU Dept. of Plant Pathology and Crop Physiology this semester, and an eighth has begun the LSU part of his “sandwich” PhD program. Pictured (top row, left to right) are Cesar Escalante, Ben McInnes, Isaack Kikway, Churamani Khanal, Nike Omolehin, and Daniel Debona, and (bottom row, left to right) Jorge Reyes and Alejandra Jimenez.
