"However, very little has been known about how this might work in real social interactions with real consequences—such as when making decisions about whether to date someone or not.Come share your work and learn about the diverse research going on in the CEE department in an event that is all about asking questions and making connections. Our so-called Translational Research Bazaar, which took place in October, used a format popularized by speed dating: Two groups of people--in this case, basic scientists and clinical/translational researchers--sit on opposite sides of a table and chat for a few minutes until a bell rings, signaling that it's time to move on and strike up a new conversation.This process continues until everyone in one group has met everyone in the other group.This year we will be awarding prizes to the best talk and poster presentations. Time: pm – pm Location: E52 – 7th floor Event Program: – Welcome: Markus Buehler (Faculty) – Dinner Reception and award ceremony Please RSVP by March 3 for the event here. In one event, there was hardly any space between the tables.

Whether or not we like to admit it, we all may make snap judgments about a new face.
