News and Announcements

$15M Will Help Expand Bioterrorism Research
The Medical Center has again received federal bioterrorism funding, allowing investigators to build on several discoveries made during the past five years to improve the ability to treat radiation injuries, especially those resulting from an act of terrorism.

Grant to Fund Study on Effects of Parental Conflict
Children respond to marital conflict in myriad ways. To identify precisely how these different coping behaviors develop, Melissa Sturge-Apple, an assistant professor of psychology, and Patrick Davies, a professor of psychology, have been awarded a $3.1 million grant to study 250 families over three years.

Wilson Commons Reopens Next Week
Wilson Commons will reopen on Monday, Aug. 16, with some minor renovation activity still under way. Starbucks will open Aug. 16 and the newly renovated Commons Food Court will open Aug. 23. Visit the Campus Dish Web site for dining hours. The HSBC ATM in the building is not currently available.

Alternate Parking on Freshman Move-In Day
Freshmen will arrive on campus and move into housing on Wednesday, Aug. 25, having a significant impact on campus traffic flow and parking. Valentine Lot, all of Park Lot, and the entire length of Intercampus Lot will be needed for the move-in process. Employees who regularly park in these lots will need to park in the AAC Lot (formerly the River Road Lot) or the Wilson North Lot. Shuttle buses will be available from the AAC Lot from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. Cars left in Park Lot will be towed to the far end of the lot. Parking maps are available. For more information, call the River Campus Parking Office at 275-3983.
