The Medical Physics Course Union (MPCU) hosted an excellent workshop this week in order to teach undergrads (and some grad students) the finer points of the LaTeX typesetting system. LaTeX is one of the premier tools for authoring scientific papers and posters, so it's a really valuable skill set to learn and use as an undergraduate student. Looking forward to seeing the results next April during Fourth Year Thesis Poster Presentations!
Big thanks to Daniel C for running the event!
