Studying these cells could lead to new treatments for diseases ranging from gastrointestinal disease to diabetes.
On Thursday, Sept. 13, members of the MIT community will be able to visit with more than 100 vendors of goods and services at MIT. The vendors will display products like scientific/laboratory equipment, office supplies, temporary help, copier suppliers, computers and furniture, and they will be able to answer any questions.
The fair gives vendors and attendees a chance to discuss how to achieve MIT's supplier-consolidation goal of reducing costs while enhancing the quality of goods and services. It is a great opportunity to meet many of MIT's new partner vendors.
The event will take place under a tent on McDermott Court (outside building 54 and building 18) from 9 a.m.-2 p.m., rain or shine. Refreshments will be available. For more information, call Diane Shea, Director of Procurement, at x3-8370.
