Ava Bromberg '02
Chemistry and Ceramics Combine in Summer Research Project
In the summer of 2001, Ava Bromberg '02, with the support of an Emerson Grant, completed a project titled "Glaze Chemistry: Where Art Melts with Science, an Interdisciplinary Exploration." Working with Professor Robert Palusky from the art department and Associate Professor Karen Brewer from chemistry, Bromberg performed a time-consuming and somewhat tedious battery of tests on hundreds of ceramic tiles. In an attempt to find viable substitutes for commonly used glazes that are becoming increasingly scarce, she used hundreds of test glazes. In researching possible substitutes for these glazes, Bromberg varied temperatures and materials as she fired thousands of test tiles. She examined the chemical compositon of the glazes in conjunction with the structure and performance of the inorganic oxides, essential for providing color. More ...
Astrid Helfant, Visiting Instructor of Biology
Helfant Publishes Article in Current Genetics
Current Genetics recently published an article by Visiting Instructor of Biology Astrid H. Helfant titled, "Composition of the Spindle Pole Body of Saccharomyces cerevisiae and the Proteins Involved in its Duplication." In her review paper, Helfant focuses on the centrosome in the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, referred to as the spindle pole body (SPB). The centrosome is an organelle found in fungi (including yeast) and in most animal cells and is known to play a key role in maintaining the genomic stability of the cell. Upon its duplication, the centrosome forms a bipolar spindle responsible for separating the genomic DNA of a dividing cell. More ...

Henry Chicaiza '04 working in a Hamilton lab
Rosenstein and Summer Fellows Try to Control Stereochemistry
Henry Chicaiza ’04, Gabrielle Markeson ’04, and Hima Poonati ’05 are working with Associate Professor of Chemistry Ian Rosenstein as summer research fellows. The group is trying to control the activity of radical reactions in chiral canters, working independently on their own piece of the project. They are three of the 90 students on the Hamilton campus doing summer research in an area of their choosing. The Hamilton Summer Science Research Program is a highly selective opportunity for students of all concentrations to experience laboratory research conducted in close collaboration with a Hamilton professor.

Hinks Quoted in New Haven Register
Peter Hinks, assistant professor of history, attended a three-day conference on slavery at Yale University. One of the goals of the conference was to debunk the myth that slavery did not occur in New England. According to Hinks, “at the time of the American Revolution about 5,000 Africans were enslaved in Connecticut.” Slavery was not abolished in Connecticut until 1848. He said, “the revolution gave the Africans the impetus to seek their freedom.” More ...
On the Cutting Edge in Geoscience
Barbara Tewksbury, the Stephen Harper Kirner Professor of Geology, headed a workshop for professors of undergraduate geoscience from July 28 to August 3 on the Hamilton campus. The workshop is part of the program “On the Cutting Edge: Workshops for Geoscience Faculty,” supported by the National Association of Geoscience Teachers and DLESE, with funding provided by a $4.2 million grant from the National Science Foundation. Hamilton has been awarded more than $70,000 from the grant for 2002, and will receive additional funding each year for the next five years. More ...
