Yale's Research Featured on National Coalition's Web Site
Yale University’s scientific advances and on-going research will be featured May 11-17 on a World Wide Web site sponsored by The Science Coalition, a national resource for information on federally funded university research. Each week, the Coalition highlights research at two member universities.
The sampling of about a dozen Yale research projects includes a sonar robot, discoveries about a promising new class of cancer drugs called angiogenesis blockers, an optical resonator that could expand the capacity of fiber-optic networks, and a new way of studying the impact of ancient earthquakes. Most of the research was funded by the National Science Foundation or other federal agencies
Each of the research stories has a photograph as well as links to a Yale news release and the researcher’s home page. Web browsers also can link to the Yale front door from the site or to web pages for the Yale Faculty of Engineering, the School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, the Faculty of Arts and Sciences or the Yale Medical Center.
The Coalition web site is found at http://www.sciencecoalition.org. Click on the “On-campus” section for news about research at Yale and other member universities. Visitors to the Coalition’s site can catch up on the latest legislative news, chat with science enthusiasts in the “Science Cafe,” browse through the “On-campus” archives, or read a multitude of science and technology documents in the web site’s library.
The Science Coalition comprises more than 60 major public and private research universities, together with more than 350 businesses, voluntary health organizations, medical groups, health-care providers, scientific societies and individuals, dedicated to sustaining the federal government’s historic commitment to federally funded university science research.
