The Ethics of Partnering with Industry for Public Health

You will help develop an annotated bibliography of articles, policy papers, and websites addressing the influence of industry on nutrition policy and public health research. This will become a web-based resource that will complement a book project on the ethical challenges of partnering with industry to promote public health. I hope to have a first draft by the middle of Spring 2016. If you have questions, please email me, as I check email more frequently than I check voicemail. Many thanks...

The Structures of Crystalline and Quasicrystalline Intermetallic Compounds

X-ray diffraction studies of the atomic arrangements in various intermetallic compounds containing aluminum, rare earths, or other metals are being carried out. Each material presents some interesting challenges. Some materials exhibit twinning, some are high temperature phases, and some have large unit cells. Of particular interest are the quasicrystalline phases which exhibit symmetries forbidden in crystalline structures. Methods for the study of the structures of these strange materials...

Ukiyoe Research Internship

Students meet with Dr. Eubanks and Palmer Museum staff in the first week of the semester for an orientation. They then select 5-6 woodblock prints from the Museum's collection to research thoroughly, creating a 3-5 page written description for each. The internship gives students an opportunity to polish critical writing skills, learn art preservation and handling techniques, and work with library and museum staff with critical materials. Students earn 3 credits (LA 495).
