Two research groups from Molecular, Cellular & Developmental Biology have science journal covers in the 2014 Science Covers Celebration at the Shapiro Science Library. This year's group of 23 journal covers will be recognized at the event on April 2, 4-6 pm. The event is free and open to the public. A welcome at 4:15 by Jen Green, head of the Science, Engineering and Clark Library will be followed by: Science Stories: Research Highlights from UM Authors
