Year in Review | July

About 30 graduate students and four faculty from around the world descended on Memorial for the AARMS (Atlantic Association for Research in the Mathematical Sciences) summer school program. Conceived, developed and run by Memorial's Dr. Edgar Goodaire, this unique program is perhaps the only one of its kind in North America. Modelled on a similar program in Italy, the AARMS summer school is about to embark on its second annual session at Memorial. The primary objectives of the school are to bring together emerging and established researchers in the field of mathematics, .

Memorial researchers, Dr. Hu Liu, Dr. Lili Wang and Wu Xiao, School of Pharmacy, developed a new radio-imaging probe designed to identify plaque lesions associated with atherosclerosis. Dr. Liu and Dr. Wang described the technology as "a special chemical which has been developed and packaged into a blood-borne particle which has strong affinity to seek the plaques already formed in the arteries."
