An Officer and a Physician

Rush University will recognize more than 800 graduating students at its 45th commencement ceremony Thursday, May 25, from 4-6 p.m. at the UIC Pavilion (525 S. Racine Ave., Chicago). Christopher B. Howard, DPhil, MBA, president of Robert Morris University near Pittsburgh, will be the honorary degree recipient and speaker. Howard graduated with distinction from the United States Air Force Academy, earned a doctorate in politics as a Rhodes Scholar from the University of Oxford and received an MBA with distinction from Harvard Business School. After 9/11, he served in Afghanistan in the Air Force Reserve and was awarded the Bronze Star for gallantry in battle. Rush graduate will go on to be Navy doctor.

Special X-Ray Technique Allows Scientists to See 3-D Deformations

3D_Bragg_900px.jpg

In a new study published last Friday in Science, researchers at Argonne used an X-ray scattering technique called Bragg coherent diffraction imaging to reconstruct in 3-D the size and shape of grain defects. These defects create imperfections in the lattice of atoms inside a grain that can give rise to interesting material properties and effects.

Skin Color No Shield Against Skin Cancer

The misconception that people with more pigment in their skin cells are protected from cancer-causing ultra-violet rays can be deadly. Melanoma, the least common form of skin cancer but also the deadliest, are more likely to be caused by genetics than the sun. Thus too many people of color don’t think to look for changing moles that can be fatal.

Study Reveals a Crucial Feature Common to Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and Huntington's Diseases

RitterFig.jpg

A study has found that abnormal proteins found in Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Huntington’s diseases share a similar ability to cause damage when they invade brain cells. The finding suggests that an effective treatment for one neurodegenerative disease might work for other neurodegenerative diseases as well.
