Maker at Boston Fed Plans to Retire
University trustee and alumna Cathy Minehan '68 announced Thursday that
she is retiring this year from her post as president of the Boston Federal
Reserve Bank. “I have decided that the time is right to move on
in the interests of broadening and diversifying my career,” says
Minehan. “I have no specific future plans beyond continuing my
involvement in nonprofit activities, and will not consider any opportunities
until my successor is in place.” (Also reported by the Boston
Business Journal, and other news outlets.)

Sells Health Unit for $2.6B
David Waldman, professor of imaging sciences, comments on Kodak's decision
to sell its health group to Toronto investors. "This will give

player with the technology."

Vote for Embryonic Stem Cell Research
"As expected, a large majority in the House of Representatives
voted Thursday to lift restrictions on federal funding for embryonic
stem cell research. But with President Bush promising to veto the measure
as he did last year, and with House leaders acknowledging that they
lack the votes to override such a veto, the national outlook for the
research remains unsettled."
