Year in Review | July

Dr. Cecilia Moloney, a professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Memorial, was named NSERC/Petro-Canada Chair for Women in Science in Engineering (CWSE) for the Atlantic Region July 16. She plans to introduce new initiatives to encourage women of all levels interested in science and engineering careers. Dr. Moloney has been with the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science since 1990. She teaches mainly in the areas of systems and signals, and signal processing.

Two outstanding individuals with connections to Memorial University were named to the Order of Canada. Dr. Patrick Parfrey, a faculty member in Medicine, was named an officer of the Order of Canada. Alumna Sister Elizabeth Davis (BA, 1974; B.Ed, 1974; LLD, 2002) was named a member of the Order of Canada.

Memorial was once again home to the summer school of the Atlantic Association for Research in the Mathematical Sciences (AARMS). From over 100 applications and expressions of interest, 35 (mostly graduate) students accepted an invitation to participate in the third annual school. Students from Austria, Croatia, Egypt, Italy, Poland, Romania, Spain, Turkey, California and six Canadian provinces from Newfoundland to B.C. took two graduate courses delivered over a period of four weeks. The courses offered include number theoretic cryptology, statistical genomics and mathematical biology.

Ryan Snelgrove, a student at the School of Pharmacy and active student member of the Canadian Society of Hospital Pharmacists (CSHP), was selected from six applications from across Canada as the national student delegate to CSHP. In this position he will be responsible for representing the views of pharmacy students at the national level.

Memorial University alumnus, Bill Rowe (BA'62) was named Newfoundland and Labrador's first representative to the newly founded Federal-Provincial Relations Office in Ottawa. The announcement was made by Premier Danny Williams. Mr. Rowe will have a mandate to provide the province a stronger presence in Ottawa and focus attention on concerns relating to equalization, transfers, resource benefits and the numerous other issues that affect the province and its economy.

Memorial University's Marine Institute teamed up with the provincial Department of Human Resources, Labour and Employment, to present Marine Pursuits - Making Waves 2004 a summer career camp. The Marine Pursuits camp increases awareness among high school students of the career opportunities available in the marine and related industries. Participants are provided with the chance to explore various marine careers through hands-on learning activities in the field, at sea, and in the lab. During the five, week-long camps, students also learn through lectures, demonstrations, and tours of the facilities at the Marine Institute.
