The association organizes professional development and social events for postdocs, including three workshops this fall. The first, "From Lab to Entrepreneurship: CU Resources, Tech Transfer and the InDevRCase Study," is scheduled for 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 16. For more information, go to
