The annual lecture held in memory of Department Chair and Professor of Mathematics, Susan Palmer Slattery, was held last Thursday, September 18, 2014. Dr. Slattery was an inspiration to both students and faculty and will always be remembered by the Stevenson Community.

This year’s lecture featured Arlene G. Weiner, an Environmental Engineer for the Baltimore District of the US Army Corps of Engineers. Ms. Weiner utilized her 30 years of experience as an environmental professional to speak on building a career in Applied Mathematics. Following the lecture, Applied Mathematics major Anna Foote was named the 2014 Slattery Scholar. She was presented the award by Ms. Thea Zimmerman, Dr. Susan Slattery’s sister. Congratulations to Anna and warm wishes to the Slattery family!

Congratulations to Assistant Professor of Biology Kimberly Pause Tucker on the publication of her research into the identification of bacterial viruses in the environment. The research, entitled “Diversity of environmental single-stranded DNA phages revealed by PCR amplification of the partial major capsid protein,” was done in collaboration with scientists in Florida and France. It sheds light on the presence of and diversity of bacterial viruses called phages in the environment. Dr. Pause Tucker is also the Director of the Center for Environmental Sustainability here at Stevenson University.

Dr. Sydella Blatch, Assistant Professor of Biology, wrote the most read online article of 2013 for ASBMB Today, a publication by the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (http://www.asbmb.org/asbmbtoday/201401/OpenChannels/TopArticles/). Her article, titled “Great achievements in science and technology in ancient Africa” was published in February 2013 and has since been downloaded and read more than any other article published in 2013. It has also created chatter on Twitter from many students who have used it in their science classes. Read the article here – http://www.asbmb.org/asbmbtoday/asbmbtoday_article.aspx?id=32437. Congratulations, Dr. Blatch!
