Garner Soltes, PhD Candidate in Molecular Biology

 Candidate in the Molecular Biology Department.  Garner will talk with us about his work on bacterial antibiotic resistance in general, as well as some of his recently published work that describes the molecular machines that help bacteria maintain their membranes and survive in the presence of drugs and the gastrointestinal environment.

As always, there is sure to be a lively discussion! Please join us.

PICS Alumni Partners Needed

Fears, or the past 2 PA3 has provided financial support for 1 to 2 summer interns at local non-profits through the PICS program.    The Executive Director of PICs has asked us to spread the word to local alumni about their need for mentor/partners during the summer. 

Dear Local Princeton Alumni,

PICS has seen a tremendous expansion this year and we will have 150+ interns in the field this summer (up from 115 last summer).  As you can imagine, pairing alumni partners has become more involved and I am hoping some in PA3 would be interested in volunteering.  We would greatly appreciate your support in finding alumni interested in interacting with current undergraduates  to fill these roles.  I need alumni partners for the following placed internships still:

 1.  The MDS Foundation in Yardville.

 2. The Center for Supportive Schools in Trenton.

 3.  Princeton - Blairstown Center (2 interns placed).

Below is what I tell those we ask to volunteer and I have attached our partner handbook:

PICS is an independent Princeton University alumni organization that places Princeton undergraduates in nonprofit paid summer internships across the US and abroad.  We will have over 150 interns in the field in 2016.

An integral  part of our program is providing each intern with an “alumni partner”, a Princeton alum who will reach out and connect with the student over the summer, help expose him or her to the Princeton alumni network generally and the networking opportunities that it offers, and field questions or issues if any arise over the summer. The role of the alumni partner is not job mentor, but rather life mentor: a friendly Princeton face for a student who is not from the area, who can answer some questions about the area, provide any work advice that might come up, spend time at a lunch or dinner,  and become a first exposure to the Princeton networking experience.   Some interns really enjoy the contact and like to make time to meet, while others are content to know someone is there that they can turn to if necessary.  Many of these connections lead to long term friendships, and are a good way to connect with current Princeton undergrads. 

 I am writing to see if you would also be interested in becoming an alumni partner to a PICS intern this summer in New York. 
I have attached our handbook for you to review as well as this link to our website,

Thank you,

CASTING CALL: Manuel vs. the Statue of Liberty

a concert reading of the musical comedy "Manuel versus the Statue of Liberty" - written by Noemi de la Puente (*86 S*89) and David Davila. The show won awards at the New York Musical Theatre Festival this past July. We have done some rewriting and are using this Princeton reading to test the new script.   It will be performed twice during the evening of February 20 at Princeton's Wilson College Black Box Theater. 

Here is the description of the role we are trying to cast in the Princeton area:

Middle aged or older gentleman, any race, to play Mr. Walsh, and Senator, has some solo singing, as well as ensemble singing.

Time commitments for rehearsals and performances on the Princeton University Campus:

- February 11, Thursday, from 7:30 - 10:00 table reading , most likely in Forbes College Black Box theatre

- February 19th - 1 - 5 PM musical rehearsal, Wilson College Black Box Theatre (Wilcox Hall)

- February 20th - all day, rehearsal, and then public performances at 7 PM and 10 PM, Wilson College Black Box Theatre (Wilcox Hall)

It is a reading so there is no memorization necessary, but the actor/singer must know his music. Vince DiMura (Theatre Dept.) is the musical director who will be working with the actor/singers, and Enzo Toral (Dept of Spanish and Portuguese) will be directing it. There will be some meetings with them as the actor/singer schedule allows.

For more information, any interested actor/singers can contact me directly, and I'd be happy to answer any questions or provide the latest copy of the script.
