of the Week
Technological progress has merely provided us with more efficient means for going backwards.
All science is concerned with the relationship of cause and effect. Each scientific discovery increases man's ability to predict the consequences of his actions and thus his ability to control future events
All the heavy elements that make up the rocks under our feet, the carbon and iron that pulse through our veins - all of these things were created by suns that had reached the ends of their lives and erupted into supernovae. We are all dust of the stars.

YOU ARE INVITED TO HEAR GUEST SPEAKER, DR. MICHAEL A. KENNEDY
Dr. Michael A. Kennedy from Miami University, Ohio, will be a guest speaker on Monday, April 2 at 3:30 p.m. in BSC 336. An alumnus of Muskingum College, Dr. Kennedy will speak on "Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy: An Evolving Tool for Human Health Research."
Over the last decade, there have been significant advances in NMR technology, methods for labeling proteins, design of more sophisticated NMR experiments, and development of more powerful data analysis methods. The cumulative effect of these advances is that solution-state NMR spectroscopy has emerged as a significant technology, in comparison to x-ray crystallography, for protein structure determination, as demonstrated by the important role that NMR is playing in the National Institute of Health's Protein Structure Initiative. Over the same time, NMR has been developed into a powerful tool for investigating human diseases using the method of metabonomics, a technique that enables global comparison of the metabolic profile of biofluids such as urine or serum. Research in these two emerging areas will be discussed.
