Cecilia Giulivi, associate professor, Department
of Chemistry, published two papers with collaborators at the University
of Southern California. "Mechanism of hydrogen peroxide-induced formation
of dityrosine and tyrosine oxidation products in hemoglobin and red blood
cells and their release by proteolysis," (Giulivi, C. and Davies,
K. J. A.) was published in Journal of Biological Chemistry 276,
24129-36. With collaborators from the University of California at Los
Angeles she published, "Hydrogen peroxide and superoxide anion generation
by menadione in the thyroid cell and the effect of menadione on intrafollicular
protein iodination," (Sugawara, M., Wen, K., and Giulivi, C.) in
the Proceedings of the Society for Experimental Biology and Medicine.
Jill D. Jenson and Dorothy Morrison, assistant professors, Department of Composition, published "Textbooks versus Technology: Teaching Professional Writing to the Next Generation of Technical Communicators" in IEEE Transactions on Professional Communication, December 2001, Vol. 44, Number 4, 234-242.

craft-media exhibition's juror was Beth Ann Gerstein, Executive Director
of the Society of Arts and Crafts, Boston.
Subhash Basak was in Washington, D.C. to participate in the review committee of the FLAIR program of the National Cancer Institute to review anticancer drug discovery proposals. Brian Gute and Basak published the paper "Molecular Similarity Based Estimation of Properties: A Comparison of Three Structure Spaces" in the Journal of Molecular Graphics and Modeling, vol. 20, pp. 95-109 (2001).
Donna J. Forbes, associate professor of Anatomy and Cell Biology and Arlen R. Severson, professor and head of Anatomy and Cell Biology have released their CD-ROM "NeuroTime?", a computer-assisted neuroanatomy learning program. They have demonstrated this software and the results of their experience using it in their medical school teaching at a number of national and international meetings over the past two years. A demonstration of the software is available at http://www.neurotime.com.
Kendall B. Wallace, professor, Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, recently returned from Salt Lake City, Utah where he was co-chair of a symposium entitled "Mechanisms of Mitochondrial Pathobiology" at the annual meeting of the American College of Veterinary Pathologists. In addition to chairing the session, Wallace presented an invited seminar on "Differential Diagnosis of Mitochondrionopathies."

Drewes, professor, Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, and W. Kuschinsky presented a paper entitled "Correlation between densities of monocarboxylate and glucose transporters in rat brain" at the 20th International Symposium on Cerebral Blood Flow and Metabolism in Taipai, Taiwan (2001).
B.L. Lim, S.F. Chew, Paul M. Anderson, adjunct professor, Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, and Y.K. Ip published a manuscript entitled "Reduction in the Rates of Protein and Amino Acid Catabolism to Slow Down the Accumulation of Endogenous Ammonia: A Possible Strategy Adopted by Mudskippers (Periophthalmodon chosseri and Boleophthalmus boddaerti) During Aerial Exposure in Constant Darkness" in the Journal of Experimental Biology 204:1605-1615 (2001).
