On Tuesday, Sept. 8, the University of Maryland will launch a new university calendar that will streamline and replace the FYI and Free Stuff @ UMD calendars. Beginning Sept. 8, you will be able to submit your events to the new campus calendar for review and approval, much like the current process for FYI and Free Stuff @ UMD. On Sept. 8, if you visit this website, you will automatically be redirected to the new calendar. In addition, a new weekly email called UMD This Week will launch on Sept. 8, replacing the daily FYI email. UMD This Week will be delivered at the beginning of every week and will highlight top upcoming events. The email will include details on how to access the new calendar and how to submit events for approval. Questions? Email

Free Lecture: 02/13/13: PSLA Presents Dr. Zhenbiao Yang, UC Riverside, 4:00 pm, 1130 PSB,

When: Wednesday, February 13, 2013 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Where: Plant Sciences : 1130
Event Type(s): Community Service

Dr. Yang has focused on 2 inter-linked areas in plant cell biology: molecular basis for cell polarity development/cell shape formation & signaling networks controlled by a plant-specific GTPase switch called Rop. Evidence has emerged from Dr. Yang's laboratory & several other laboratories that Rop acts as a versatile switch in signal transduction in plants. Dr. Yang's research shows that Rop signaling provides a general mechanism for the control of cell polarity & cell shape formation; & he has demonstrated that cell shape formation in intact tissues involves two phases with distinct mechanisms. His laboratory is identifying signals that regulate Rop-dependent directional cell expansion & other components in the Rop-dependent pathways.
