Provost's Newsletter: January 2021
Message From the Provost
New Year’s greetings! We are excited to share with you the winter edition of the Provost's e-newsletter. Our students and faculty continue to amaze us as they pursue the interdisciplinary research and knowledge needed to solve real-world problems for a better future. In this edition, we have highlighted just a few of their stories. I hope you enjoy reading them.
— Robyn Hannigan, Provost
The Big Chill
As St. Lawrence County prepared to receive coronavirus vaccines, it needed an ultra-low temperature (ULT) freezer — and Clarkson came to the rescue. Biology Professor Susan Bailey and her Experimental Evolution and Bioinformatics Lab lent their ULT to Canton-Potsdam Hospital.
Clarkson Praised As Green and Cool
At Clarkson, we don’t just talk the talk, we walk the walk — or plant the plants, as the case may be. Whatever we’re doing, The Princeton Review, Sierra Club and others clearly approve, because, once again, we’ve earned their recognition for our sustainable practices.
Business Is Our Business
From starting a business in their first year to pitching business ideas to investors, our students are honing their entrepreneurial skills in one of the best places. And we’re not the only ones who think so. Entrepreneur magazine and The Princeton Review recently ranked Clarkson’s undergraduate entrepreneurship programs among the best in the country.
Keeping on the Sunny Side
In the future, sunscreen might not be the only thing you wear on your skin to protect it from harmful UV rays. Clarkson researchers have created a wearable sensor that indicates the amount of UV radiation exposure. Not only is it small and portable, the sensor is low-cost and made through 3D bioprinting.
