IU’s Big Ten Network series: Beyond the Syllabus

Posted: August 13, 2010 by ljhadvisor in Events

What can you learn in an hour and a half?         •        What difference can you make to IU in that time?

All IU students are invited to be part of the studio audience as we tape two pilot programs called BEYOND THE SYLLABUS for airing on the Big Ten Network:

  • On Monday, Aug. 23, 2010, at 2:30 p.m., celebrated Professor of Chemistry Richard DiMarchi – the IU scientist who discovered a drug combination that reduced body weight in lab mice by 25 percent and body fat by 40 percent within a week – will discuss the life sciences discoveries you can expect to see in your lifetime. (Radio-TV Building Room 251)
  •  On Tuesday, Aug. 24, at 2:30 p.m., internationally renowned Psychological and Brain Sciences Professor Olaf Sporns will lead you on an amazing journey through the human brain. (Radio-TV Building Room 245)

Enjoy a free lunch, then listen while some of IU’s best minds share ideas and research discoveries that will change the way we live in the 21st century.

All audience members will be filmed and should expect to be on TV as part of the finished programs.  Space is limited; reservations are required.  RSVP to kelljone@indiana.edu to confirm your attendance at this free event; specify which date you would like to attend (or both days).  Participants are asked to wear either non-branded clothing (preferred) or IU shirts.
