Special session for former colleagues

Sunday 3 December 2006

Centre for Drug Development Science
University of California
Washington Center 1608
Rhode Island Ave. NW
Washington, DC


The special session is an opportunity for those who worked closely with Lewis at UCSF to meet old friends and make new ones. The afternoon program will offer a series of informal recollections of working with Lewis and its effect on our lives today. Please register even if you do not plan to attend.


There is a program of speakers who have been asked to describe some of the main features of life with Lewis and how he is still affecting their lives. However, everyone is encouraged to participate in an afternoon of memories and celebration of being with Lewis. If you want to bring a Powerpoint presentation with one or two slides of photos/special words then we will find some time for you too.
