OUR CLUB 
	The formation of a Metropolitan Area Cell Death Society (Club) at  
Rockefeller University, with meetings each month, has been a great success.
  
Attendance hovers around 60-90 people, coming from several institutions,  
and a mailing list of over 200, from several countries.  If you are  
interested in getting details of the monthly meeting, and having others  
know about your interest in cell death, please contact us.  In addition, it
 
would be helpful if you let others know about us and ask them to get this  
information to us.  
 
FOR INSTRUCTIONS, DIRECTIONS, HOTEL INSTRUCTIONS, ETC. CONTACT ZAHRA ZAKERI
 
AT ABOVE ADDRESSES.
