Welcome to ABOG

The Academic Business Officers Group (ABOG) is an organization of senior business officers from academic departments, research organizations, and administrative units who gather information about, provide input to and comment upon policies and practices affecting the operation of their organizations.

ABOG's objectives are to improve communications among teaching, research, service, and administrative offices, provide a forum for discussion of common concerns, provide the administration with a broad-based planning resource group that is closely involved with campus issues, and assist members to improve the operation of their units.  For a further description of ABOG purpose and objectives, please refer to our by-laws.

Mouse optic nerve head in the retina. The red color is stained with an antibody against the protein GFAP which labels the astrocytes, the green color is GFP that labels the cell bodies of the astrocytes, and the blue color is another antibody Collagen IV which labels blood vessels.  This image was captured by Gabriel Luna using a laser scanning confocal microscope.
