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.
