Welcome to the July 2006 issue of the In Vitro Report. As new co-editors of the newsletter, we would like to introduce ourselves and invite you to submit “anything” of interest to the SIVB and its members for inclusion in future issues. Dr. Carol M. Stiff was involved in research and teaching in her previous life and now is President and CEO of her company, Kitchen Culture Kits, Inc. (www.kitchenculturekit.com) and can be reached by email at kck@turbonet.com. Dr. Michael J. Fay is an Associate Professor of Pharmacology at Midwestern University in Downers Grove, IL. He can be reached by email at mfayxx@midwestern.edu.

We are both new at this job and are open to your suggestions and input. Everyone in the SIVB reads the newsletter (we hope) so this gives us a sense of “community” and unity. It is through this unity that our society will endure. We look forward to working with all of you!

Best Regards,
Carol and Mike
