Happy 2010! May this be the best year ever in all your pursuits. May you grow intellectually, socially, spiritually, and in maturity – all while experiencing outstanding health! Make 2009 envious and intimidate 2011 by how 2010 brought great memories and great investments into your body, mind, and spirit!
At McMurry, the BIMS faculty are ready to do our part to help this wish for the coming year come true. Hard to believe this is only the second New Years observed by the BIMS program. Dr. Benoit, Dr. DiFrancesca, Dr. Sharp, Dr. Pyenta, and I all expect the maturing of the BIMS program during 2010 to bring greater courses, greater research projects in your labs, greater opportunities for you, and closer relationships among students and faculty as we grow into the vision upon which this program was built. New courses, fine tuning of the curriculum, new relationships with biotech firms and professional schools all will provide new opportunities, experiences, and skills to fuel that growth.
Your role? Don’t bypass an opportunity to learn, to experience, to grow. Your benefit from the program is in direct proportion to your immersion in the program. So dive in, and enjoy!
