Mathew Forbes Romer Foundation Honors Murphey and Blakely Richard Gordon
Rod Murphey, Ph. D., director of FAU’s Jupiter Life Science Initiative and chair of the Biological Sciences Department, and Randy Blakely, Ph. D., executive director of the FAU Brain Institute, were recently honored with “See the Light” awards at the Mathew Forbes Romer Foundation's "Sweetness & Laughter Gala."

“We are recognizing joint leaders, Drs. Blakely and Murphey, who have helped pioneer the FAU’s Brain institute and the world-class Jupiter neurosciences campus in partnership with Scripps Research Institute and Max Planck," said Kevin Romer, president of the Mathew Forbes Romer Foundation.

The Mathew Forbes Romer Foundation was founded with a mission to promote and lead critical awareness, testing, counseling and research initiatives that hold promise for the prevention and eventual cure of fatal children's genetic diseases of the brain.


Shamma Receives Seed Grant For Poetry App Richard Gordon
South Florida Culture awarded a seed grant to Wilkes Honors College Assistant Professor of American Literature Yasmine Shamma, Ph.D. for her project titled “Stanza: Mapping the Poetry of Place.” Shamma has created an app that offers a digital archive of poetry written near the app user. The seed grant will cover server costs for the first year of the project’s publication, and Shamma intends to apply for larger scale funding from national organizations that support the digital humanities and innovation. The first phase of the project focuses on mapping where poetry was written in the Florida Keys.

Wilkes Honors College “Scholars Day” a Success Richard Gordon
The Wilkes Honors College’s annual “Scholars Day” was held last week and welcomed a select group of high-preforming potential students to information sessions about the college. These top-prospects also interviewed with faculty members for prestigious scholarships. Dean Goldey spent time with the students and provided special remarks about the exciting opportunities available at the Wilkes Honors College and the Jupiter campus.
Florida Atlantic University’s John D. MacArthur Campus in Jupiter presently enrolls more than 1,500 students and offers a broad range of upper-division and graduate courses. The campus houses the Harriet L. Wilkes Honors College and the nation’s largest Lifelong Learning Society. Both the FAU Brain Institute and the FAU Center for Molecular Biology and Biotechnology call the MacArthur campus home, providing cutting edge research infrastructure and educational programs that link to other FAU campuses. The Jupiter Life Science Initiative serves to unite scientists and students in campus research and training activities, and helps sustain FAU’s close affiliations with Scripps Florida and the Max Planck Florida Institute, which are also located on the campus.
