Conference Highlights Careers in Biomedical Industry
The future of the expanding biomedical industry in upstate New York, including the latest trends, innovative research, and career options, will be the topic of a conference on Friday, April 16, hosted by the University of Rochester and Rochester Institute of Technology.

Repaving Will Close Part of Road Near Goler House
Beginning at 7:30 a.m. today, Central Utilities crews will be at the northwest corner of Goler House (near the bus stop) removing cold patch and re-paving the roadway around a manhole and catch basin. The portion of road will re-open Thursday, April 15. A portion of the small through road between Goler House and Eastman Dental Center parking lots will also be closed. There will be no effect on entrances/exits to parking lots in the area, but pedestrians and vehicular traffic are asked to use caution while in the area.
