Ralph Regula School of Computational Science planning committee to hold meeting July 28

Among the issues the committee plans to discuss are: a description of the approved competencies for the undergraduate minor in computational science; draft documents for the policy advisory committee discussing shared curricula; a draft of the governing board and advisory committee structure; updates on school projects; and National Science Foundation reviewer comments on an ATE proposal.

Doctors deliver high-tech training to Central America

Two surgeons from Central Ohio recently traveled to Nicaragua on a humanitarian mission to treat children with serious ear, nose and throat conditions. However, this year they brought along some help in the form of high-tech equipment designed to appeal to a generation that grew up playing video games – not to entertain the children, but to train the local doctors and medical students.

$1 million grant to OSC and partners to provide business with workforce training and supercomputing portals

Man at computer

The National Science Foundation last week designated nearly $1 million to provide Ohio’s workforce with crucial training in computational modeling and simulation. The grant also supplies Ohio’s businesses with advanced Internet portals that will offer cyberinfrastructure resources companies need to compete in the global marketplace.

OSC Implements Virtual Pipeline for OSU Summer Course in Plant Biology

This summer quarter from July 25-Aug. 5, 2005, The Ohio State University is offering its annual practical summer workshops on functional genomics. Advanced undergraduate and graduate students, faculty members and postdoctoral researchers are invited to enroll for the plant-focused workshop.

The workshop is open to a maximum of 20 students. The lab portion of the workshop is full, however, those interested in signing up for the lectures may still enroll. The course is Plant Cellular and Molecular Biology (PCMB) 694 and is available for two college credits.
