Thanks to all of you that made the BUMC March for Science event on Saturday so successful! It was great seeing so many faculty, students, staff and friends celebrating our shared passion for science.
BU Today even quoted many of you in today’s paper.
Thanks again for braving the weather and making the March such a fun and successful event.

We invite all faculty, staff and students to participate.
