Faculty/Staff Activities

Brandy Russell gave a talk titled “Role of metal type and oxidation state in myohemerythrin folding and metal site assembly” at the spring national meeting of the American Chemical Society in San Francisco March 21-25. The talk was based on research done in collaboration with Alysha Dicke '10 and Veronica Taylor '09.

Julie Gilbert (library) published her article, "Using Assessment Data to Investigate Library Instruction for First Year Students," in Communications in Information Literacy.

Lynn Burg and Sarah Monson (both library) presented a mini-session at the MnPALS Acquisitions/Serials and Cataloging Workday, April 8, in St. Paul. Their session was titled "Local Holding Records and Macro Express."

Patricia Freiert (classics, emerita) will be showing her hand-dyed shibori scarves at the American Craft Council show at RiverCentre in St. Paul April 16-18. For more information: http://www.craftcouncil.org/.

Pamela Kittelson (biology) and a University of Montana colleague, Peter Lesica, published a paper in the Journal of Arid Environments titled "Precipitation and Temperature Are Associated with Advanced Flowering Phenology in a Semi-arid Grassland." They found that 24 of 32 Montana wildflowers are flowering earlier (~1.6 days earlier per year). Their work is one of the first studies to show that advances in first flowering date were strongly related to changes in temperature as well as winter precipitation.

Funding Opps

The Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations' weekly program or funding opportunity highlight:

  • Research in Undergraduate Institutions (RUI)... The Research in Undergraduate Institutions (RUI) program supports research for faculty members of predominately undergraduate institutions through the funding of 1) individual and collaborative research projects, 2) the purchase of shared-use research instrumentation, and 3) Research Opportunity Awards (ROA) for work with NSF-supported investigators at other institutions. Program objectives include supporting high-quality faculty/student research and strengthening the research environment in undergraduate academic departments. The three RUI programs are described on the NSF website. For program and deadline information, contact the NSF program director of the research program to which a proposal might be submitted.
