Musicology Series: Evidence of Muses
Tuesday, September 26, 2017, 7:30 – 9pm Weeks Center for Recording and Performance, Clarke Recital Hall Musicology Series—Evidence of Muses Frank Cooper, lecturer This lecture tackles the broad subject of unseen but real-enough powers and humanity’s need to embody, personify, and demystify them via monstrous, human or other forms. Born of polytheism yet brought into monotheism by transformation, the muses have possessed many changing identities, complex personalities, and multiple attributes. They could confound as readily as inspire through invocations and prayers directed to them collectively and individually; by dedications to them; and by referencing them through prose and poetry, works of art, and choreography. A jaw-dropping experience.  Purchase tickets here

SEEDS: Presentational Skills and Career Networking Development Through Theatrical Training by Prof. Laura Rikard
Friday, October 6, 2017, 12 – 5pm This half-day workshop will apply performance pedagogy, traditionally used in training theatre practitioners, to help faculty and graduate students enhance skills for interpersonal networking and when presenting in the classroom, at conferences, and interviews. In the pursuit of study and research in areas such as the sciences, scholars are often well versed in research and applicable practice in one’s area of expertise. However, often in these pursuits the time for developing skills in how to communicate this information (outside of the written form) can be overlooked. This workshop offers faculty and graduate students an enjoyable and comfortable environment to enhance and develop this skill.

Thursday, October 12, 2017, 7:30 – 9pm Weeks Center for Recording and Performance, Clarke Recital Hall Musicology Series—The Future of Muses Frank Cooper, lecturer In this final installment of the musicology series, this lecture deals with the pursuit of ideas realized through hard work and persistence. Professor Emeritus Cooper examines the potential for epiphanic moments and flashes of illumination in formerly dark places. The human subconscious erupts into consciousness in order to solve problems and can result in masterpieces, which we may never be able to grasp. Muses’ hands bestow supernatural charms to grace humanity with the desire to seek what is unimaginable today but may be available tomorrow. Thus, the muses venture to respond to our needs—when and as they will. Purchase tickets here

SCCC BBSR Weekly Quantitative Science Clinic
Monday, October 23, 2017, 12 – 1:30pm The Biostatistics and Bioinformatics Shared Resource (BBSR) at the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center will host a weekly Quantitative Science Clinic, open to all Sylvester members, affiliates and staff, every Monday, from noon to 1:30 p.m., in the Don Soffer Clinical Research Building, room 705. A light lunch will be provided. At the clinics, researchers will discuss their statistical questions or issues in a group environment. The Quantitative Science Clinic staff will provide expert biostatistical, bioinformatics, and computational advice to cancer researchers, on all phases of research, including analysis plans, sample size calculations, statistical study design, interpretation of quantitative findings, and high throughput genomic data analysis. To participate, researchers will need to complete a Quantitative Science Clinic request form and submit via email to the BBSR clinic general email account (bbc-clinic@miami.edu) at least three days in advance. Clinics will be confirmed by an email response from the BBSR administration outlining scheduled date and time, requesting researcher, location, and topic for discussion. (Note: Mentors/supervisors are strongly encouraged to attend the clinic with students and postdoctoral fellows.) Researchers who have simple datasets to be analyzed have the option of emailing their de-identified data, prior to clinic discussion, to the BBSR clinic general email account (bbc-clinic@miami.edu). Preferred formats are R, SPSS, SAS, and .cvs files. Identifiable data MUST be removed from the files prior to submitting to our core. For more information, contact Steven Chen, Ph.D., Core Director, at bbc-clinic@miami.edu or 305-243-2865.
