1. Undergraduate research to be presented at health sciences research day
The College of Health Sciences Fourth Annual Student Research Day will feature biomedical research presentations by the 22 students from the college’s competitive summer program. Students will present their research Friday, Aug. 3, in the Grand Ballroom of the Alumni Memorial Union. Poster presentations will be from 9 to 10:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., separated by a 10:30 keynote address by Dr. Jack Brooks, former dean of the College of Health Sciences. Sessions will include presentations in communications, humanities, social sciences, psychology, engineering and physical sciences. Refreshments will be provided.
The students, rising sophomore, junior and senior undergraduate students with interests in biomedical research, conducted their projects in the laboratories of 14 participating faculty mentors. This year’s participants also included two students who were selected and funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse through its Summer Research with NIDA Program.

6. Marquette Interchange highlights for the week of July 30
The focus of the Interchange Project has shifted from demolition to construction. The placement of large steel beams requires changes in local streets and freeway closures. Due to the size of the beams and the height of their placement, overnight closures will run into daylight hours. Until all beams are placed, closures will be more frequent and will occur on both city streets and the freeway.
Much of this work is planned over the next 13 weekends, as well as a few evenings. These operations are extremely delicate and weather-sensitive. The contractors' goal is to get most of the remaining beams placed before cold and windy weather sets in. This will allow for other, less weather-related work this winter.
• Night deck pours and/or beam installation will occur south of Straz Tower from Monday, July 31, through Sunday, Aug. 5.
• Tory Hill/ Clybourn is partially open from 10th to 16th Street with a single westbound lane open in the eastbound roadway; eastbound is still closed from 16th to 13th streets.
• Wisconsin Avenue is restricted to a single eastbound lane between 19th and 20th street, and westbound between 4th and 10th streets, temporarily moving into the eastbound roadway.
• St Paul will be closed both directions from 5th to 13th streets:
Friday, Aug. 3, 9 a.m. to noon
Saturday, Aug. 4, all day
Sunday, Aug. 5, all day
Monday, Aug. 6, until 6 a.m.
