Your 2018 Top 100 Science Students!
April 19, 2018

INDIANAPOLIS – With 41 students on this year’s Top 100 list, nearly half of the students recognized are enrolled in the School of Science. This year’s Top 100 honorees were recognized at the annual awards dinner where the Top 10 students and Top student were also named.

A panel of alumni, faculty and staff select the top students based on nominations by faculty and staff. The students who were selected show strength in scholastic achievement, collegiate and co-curricular activities and civic/community service.

INDIANAPOLIS -- In work that brings researchers closer to the goal of precision medicine approaches to treating glaucoma and other neurodegenerative vision diseases, a new IUPUI study has, for the first time, been able to identify a wide variety of previously unknown cell subtypes in the human eye. The cells -- called retinal ganglion cells, also known as RGCs -- are the neurons that take visual information from the eye to the brain for processing and interpretation, which is how we see things.

INDIANAPOLIS - While predictive policing aims to improve the effectiveness of police patrols, there is concern that these algorithms may lead police to target minority communities and result in discriminatory arrests.  An IUPUI School of Science computer scientist conducted the first study to look at real-time field data from Los Angeles, CA and found predictive policing did not result in biased arrests. p_a_f_csi_george-mohler.png

INDIANAPOLIS - IUPUI professor of mathematical sciences Michal Misiurewicz has been elected a foreign member of the Polish Academy of Sciences. This honor recognizes Misiurewicz's lifetime achievements in mathematics, including proving some basic results in one-dimensional dynamics.

This distinction is "a clear indication of our great appreciation and of (Misiurewicz's) leading position in science, as well as of (his) significant contribution to the development of scientific cooperation with Poland," stated Polish Academy of Sciences president Jerzy Duszynski.

There's more to artificial intelligence -- AI -- than robots taking over the world. Zachary Balda and Brandon Boynton say what they do is machine learning, a subset of AI. Word choice aside though, it kind of sounds like they're helping machines replace the need for a human brain.

Male professors at prestigious U.S. institutions are more than twice as likely to speak at colloquia than their female counterparts. A new study found that this disparity can't be explained by academic rank or differential interest in giving talks.

The study, published last month in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, found there were 3,652 colloquium speakers in 2013-14 in six disciplines at the top 50 U.S. universities and colleges, as defined by U.S. News & World Report.

When George Mohler was an undergraduate mathematics student at Indiana University, he had no idea that his work would eventually have the potential to shape crime prevention and incident response for major metropolitan police departments.

Mohler's Ph.D. studies in the University of California system steered him into predictive modeling and data analytics. His first assignment was in Los Angeles -- no small task.

INDIANAPOLIS -- No drug treatment exists for hydrocephalus, the buildup of fluid known as "water on the brain" that can occur at any age.

A multidisciplinary team of researchers on the IUPUI campus has received a $1.8 million grant from the U.S. Department of Defense to gain a better understanding of hydrocephalus and commence developing potential treatments.
