Clarkson's Dana Barry Of Canton Receives Apex Award For Publication Excellence
Clarkson University Center for Advanced Materials Processing (CAMP) Technical Writer Dana M. Barry has received a 2002 APEX Award for Publication Excellence.
This is the seventh time Barry’s work has been recognized with an APEX Award. Her winning entry was the CAMP Annual Report Newsletter (2000-2001). The award was based on editorial content and overall communications effectiveness and excellence. APEX Awards are sponsored by Communications Concepts Inc. in Springfield, Va.
Barry’s outstanding career includes over 70 professional publications and numerous awards and citations for professional excellence. She has published five books and recently received an Outstanding Achievement Award from the Northern New York section of the American Chemical Society. Other honors include biographical listings in several national and international reference publications, including Something About the Author, 1000 Great Scientists and the Dictionary of International Biography, 30th Anniversary Edition.
This past summer, Barry was a visiting professor at Suzuka National College of Technology in Japan where she presented lectures on an innovative method for teaching college and high school chemistry that uses music and science experiments to reinforce concepts. Barry developed the method in collaboration with Professor Hideyuki Kanematsu of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Suzuka. Other Suzuka professors working on this project are Tatsumasa Kobayashi and Hiroshi Shimofuruya.
Barry is currently writing an article on the ongoing collaboration between Clarkson and Suzuka for the January 2003 issue of the Japanese chemistry research journal the Bulletin of the Tokai Kagaku Kougyoukai (The Society of Midland Chemical Industries).
In addition to her CAMP position, Barry is a certified professional chemist and serves as an external professor for Ansted University in Malaysia.
