CW LEADERSHIP PROGRAM
The UMD Commission on Women announces its second leadership program for
faculty and staff women on campus beginning January 2006. Women
in Leadership: Finding the Balance will be a four-part leadership
series offered to a cohort of ten campus women.
The program will provide an opportunity to experience a dynamic, interactive,
intensely personal, approach to finding balance. Members selected for
the cohort will represent diverse areas of campus, and will have expressed
an authentic interest and commitment to the program.
Applications are available at the Commission on Women website, www.d.umn.edu/comwomen/.
Applications will be accepted until December 16. Applicants will be notified
of their acceptance by December 22.

In the spirit of the new Integrated Biosciences (IBS) graduate program,
three recent UMD graduates in three different academic programs have published
a research article titled Digital transcriptome analysis indicates
adaptive mechanisms in the heart of a hibernating mammal. The article,
published in the journal Physiological Genomics, was authored by
Katharine Brauch (M.S. Biology, 2005), Nirish Dhruv (M.S. Computer Science,
2004) and Eric Hanse (UROP, B.S. Biology, 2005).
Brauch is now a tenure-track faculty member in Biology at Hibbing Community
College; Dhruv works for Credit Suisse First Boston, an investment bank
in New York; and Hanse is a research assistant in the Department of Medicine
at the Minneapolis Medical Research Foundation. The complete citation
for their work is below.
