Where's My Jetpack? Seminar - Why Innovation Takes So Long

ProSPER is proud to announce the next chapter of our seminar series, “Where's My Jetpack? Why Innovation Takes So Long.” This June we are inviting experts in biomedical research and ethics to discuss medical innovation. How do research and business intersect? What are the challenges researchers face when trying to discover new drugs or bring drugs to clinical trials? Why does drug development take so long and why is it so expensive? What types of policies surround clinical trials? Come be a part of this exciting and important discussion! http://gradpages.wustl.edu/prosper

Annual Advocates for Opera event – June 8

The Opera Theatre of St. Louis is organizing a special evening for local attorneys, law professors, and law students – the 8th annual “Advocates for Opera” event. Advocates for Opera is designed both to bring together colleagues who love opera and to introduce opera to those who could turn out to be new fans. Spencer Burke, the past chair of the board of OTSL who launched this affinity group, taught for a year at WashULaw. Now, Professor Adrienne Davis has joined the board and enthusiastically supports this tradition. This year's event will take place on Wednesday evening (8 pm), June 8, when OTSL will present "Puccini's La Bohčme." As in the past, a number of tickets will be available at the student rate of only $15. For student tickets, you must call the box office at (314) 961-0644 to order and then bring a student ID to pick up the ticket. (Graduating students are included.) In addition, OTSL is offering excellent seats at 15 percent off the regular single ticket rate – if you miss out on the student tickets or you prefer different seating. For more general information, see: http://www.opera-stl.org/ OTSL is a local treasure, offering world-class productions in an informal setting that includes picnics on the lawn before each show and an opportunity to celebrate with the performers afterwards. If a group from the law school wants to gather for a picnic before the performance, Professor Appleton can arrange for tables. Please email her appleton@wustl.edu if you plan to come.
