Before we turn the calendar to December, here’s a look back at some images captured in November across the University of Rochester. Photos by J. Adam Fenster unless otherwise noted.
LAUNCH PARTY: A composite of eight image bursts from a single photo showing metal balls shot through a spring-loaded launcher. Students apply statistical tools to predict where the balls will land during professor of mechanical engineering Doug Kelley’s Repeatability and Statistics lab, part of the course ME 240: Fundamentals of Instrumentation and Measurement. Faculty members are working with industry advisors to modernize hands-on aspects of the department’s curriculum.
PARADISE BY (ELECTRIC) CANDLELIGHT: Visitors view pages of handwritten medieval manuscripts—part of a collection at the Rossell Hope Robbins Library—by electric candlelight in the Great Hall, Rush Rhees Libary. Read more about the event.
TEAMWORK MAKES THE DREAM WORK: Members of the men’s basketball team enjoy lunch at Witmer House during a gathering of first-year athletes hosted by University President Sarah Mangelsdorf. (University of Rochester photo / Lauren Petracca)
SUPER SLEUTHING: Electrical and computer engineering PhD student You (Neil) Zhang is photographed in the Computer Studies Building. Zhang received a National Institute of Justice fellowship to develop audio deepfake detection systems for forensics and security.
A RUN TO REMEMBER: Members of the University community participate in the annual Veterans Day 5K run at Edwin Fauver Stadium. (University of Rochester photo / Adrian Kraus)
IT’S SNOW TIME: Rongren Zhou ’27 of Guangdong, China, reacts to seeing snow for the first time by building a snowman on the Eastman Quadrangle.
CELL CULTURE CLUB: A modular µSiM (m-µSiM) tissue chip platform, used to model vascular barrier tissues and containing an easy-access open well for cell culture, is pictured in the lab of James McGrath, the William R. Kenan Jr. Professor of Biomedical Engineering. McGrath is one of the recipients of this year’s Goergen Awards for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching.
ANOTHER DIMENSION, ANOTHER DIMENSION: First-year PhD students of professor of biomedical engineering James McGrath look at renderings with 3-D glasses during a tour of the Center for Integrated Research Computing (CIRC), URNano facility, and High Content Imaging Core (HCIC) to familiarize themselves with research tools at their disposal.
ANGLING FOR MORE: Goergen Hall’s M.C. Escher-esque atrium as seen from below.
