2008 College of Science Research Day

A few of the many College of Science
Research Day poster presenters for 2008

The 4th annual College of Science Research Day was held Friday, May 2nd, 2008 at Cleveland State University's Fenn Tower and Woodling Gym.

Research Day is an opportunity for College of Science students and faculty to present and share posters of their current research, teaching and service accomplishments. They represent the strong commitment of our faculty and students to scholarship. Each year the posters demonstrate a wide range of exploration, from basic science to direct health care, from mathematical modeling to research on educational strategies. The work reflects not only the scholarly interests of individuals, but the close relationship between scholarly and educational endeavors.

This year, Research Day featured a keynote presentation by a scientist, researcher, or academician in one of the College of Science disciplines. The keynote was presented by Dr. Harry F. Noller, renowned researcher in the area of cell and molecular biology. Also, as recognition of the research and scholarly accomplishments of our faculty, two College of Science faculty members, nominated by their colleagues, were presented with the 2008 Outstanding Research Award.

Dr. Harry F. Noller is the Robert Louis Sinsheimer Professor of Molecular Biology and Director of the Center for Molecular Biology of RNA at the University of California, Santa Cruz. Dr. Noller studied bio-chemistry at the University of California in Berkeley and earned his doctorate in chemistry at the University of Oregon. He was a National Institutes of Health Postdoctoral Fellow at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge, England and at the Institute of Moleculary Biology, University of Geneva, Switzerland. Dr. Noller has worked at the University of California in Santa Cruz since 1968. Dr. Noller has received several awards for his work in the field of RNA and ribosome research, including the Massry Foundation International Award and Medal for Ribosome Research in 2004 (jointly with Ada Yonath), the Lifetime Achievement Award of the RNA Society in 2003, the Newcomb Cleveland Prize of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in 2002. Most recently, he has been awarded the Paul Ehrlich & Ludwig Darmstaedter Prize and the Gairdner, a prestigious Canadian biomedical award, for his work on the elucidation of the ribosome structure, the protein synthesizing apparatus of the cell.
