Dartmouth's first "Celebration of Research" scheduled weekend of Oct. 20 and 21

Posted 09/15/00

As part of Dartmouth's efforts to emphasize its accomplishments in research as well as liberal arts teaching, an October event called Celebration of Research will showcase the College's research projects.

The celebration, scheduled for Oct. 20 and 21, is open to the Dartmouth community, and will particularly introduce Dartmouth's undergraduates to faculty research. The afternoon of Oct. 20 will feature simultaneous seminars and symposia across campus by faculty members from Dartmouth departments. A party with refreshments and live music in Alumni Hall will follow.

On Saturday morning, six faculty members, one from each of the professional schools and the divisions of Arts and Sciences, will speak in Filene Auditorium about their research. Presenters include:

  • Kusum Ailawadi, Associate Professor of Business Administration, Tuck School, "How Advertising and Promotion Work: Learning From P&G's Value Pricing Strategy"
  • Tillman Gerngross, Assistant Professor of Biochemical Engineering, Thayer School, "How Green are Green Plastics?"
  • Mary Hudson, Professor of Physics, Arts and Sciences, "Space Weather at the Millennium Solar Maximum" and
  • Randolph Noelle, Professor of Microbiology, Dartmouth Medical School, "Curing Autoimmunity"

On Saturday afternoon, participants may tour selected laboratories and other research facilities.

This is the first year Dartmouth has held such an event, and faculty and administrators plan to organize similar showcase events every year. Specifics about the event, locations of symposia, speakers names, etc., will be posted on the Web at a later date.

Dartmouth has television (satellite uplink) and radio (ISDN) studios available for domestic and international live and taped interviews. For more information, call 603-646-3661 or see our Radio, Television capability webpage.
