A Poster for the seminar is attached as e-files, MS Word and pdf. We
would greatly appreciate your posting it at your institution. An

I am pleased to announce that Susannah Fritton (CCNY,
fritton@ccny.cuny.edu), with the help of Luis Cardoso (CCNY,
cardoso@engr.ccny.cuny.edu), have agreed to taker over the
organization of the NYC bone seminar series starting with the Fall
2008 series. It would be very helpful to the new organizers if people
would submit suggestions for Fall 08 speakers to Susannah and, if
possible, volunteer to host (i.e., verify facilities on the night of
a seminar and introduce the speaker).
