IU South Bend biotech partnership produces student mentoring bonus
What started as a business arrangement quickly became an academic advantage for IU South Bends departments of Chemistry and Biology. The creators of Plateletworks, a new high-speed blood test with capabilities to reduce surgical complications, originally contracted to use the South Bend campus laboratories and equipment for their research. But now theyve also become irreplaceable campus mentors for students interested in the fast-growing and highly competitive world of biotechnical research.

A new type of E-learning software is available for the first time for free to educational institutions in the United States, thanks to an ANGEL.

A day in the life
Was the world of women two millennia ago all that different from the world of 21st-century women? Perhaps, but the smaller details of domesticity and personal adornment may not be all that far afield, according to an IUB curator and an archeologist who have combined their expertise to create the upcoming exhibit, The Spindle and the Shrine: Daily Life of Women in Classical Times, opening Saturday , Oct. 7, at the IU Art Museum in Bloomington. Ancient women socialized outside the home, served as pries ts, organized festivals and even performed as mimes, musicians, jugglers and acrobats in broad forms of street entertainment. And yet, even with six of the 12 Olympic deities being women, Greece and Rome were exceedingly patriarchal cultures that believed the home was the center of a womans universe.
