As I was finishing high school, I began receiving offers from colleges around the nation. Despite the reputations of these schools, I knew that I wanted to stay in state for my collegiate education. When my mother and I arrived to tour Tulane, the beautiful buildings, feel of campus life and the smaller class sizes I was ecstatic when truly impressed me. I opened it and saw My biggest concern, however, was the cost. When the envelope came from Tulane, “accepted,” and even more I had butterflies in my stomach. What if I thrilled when I saw the got accepted but had to turn it down befinancial aid package that cause of tuition costs? I was ecstatic when I opened it and saw “accepted,” and even I had been offered. more thrilled when I saw the financial aid RICHARD ROSIER package that I had been offered. It had all worked out: I was going to Tulane! The students here at Tulane are all accomplished, and this contributes to a very intellectual, stimulating environment. There are intelligent students from all over the world. If I want to have a conversation about neurological pathways, or gerrymandering, or the effects of gender on power dynamics, there is someone that I can talk to that will be open to discussion. They will have their own perspectives to add, which are often very different from mine. It is this assemblage of differing intellectuals that truly makes Tulane great, by exposing young people like me to new ideas and viewpoints. I’m very thankful that I could come here. When I go home, my family always tells me how proud they are that I am at Tulane. They know its reputation for excellence, and that it is preparing me for a successful life. I’m enjoying the experience, and very appreciative of the scholarships and donors that have allowed me to succeed here.

TULANE IS HIS FIRST CHOICE
GIVING THANKS FOR GUIDANCE Gene Miller (A&S ’54, G ’59) counts his experience at Tulane University as one of the most important in his life, one that transformed a boy from a small town in the Midwest into a successful chemist and company chief. He was eager to return the favor to Tulane, endowing a professorship in honor of his mentor, Joseph Boyer. He left behind a town of only 150 to attend Tulane. “When I graduated from high school, my graduation present was the Korean War,” he joked. He noted that the conflict abroad provided strong incentive to keep his grades up as an undergraduate. Although he completed his bachelor’s of science degree in chemistry in the spring of 1954, he elected to stay at the university in order to pursue his passion for organic chemistry as a graduate student. That same spring, Lois Cullen, a native New Yorker, was busy completing her bachelor’s of science degree in chemistry and mathematics at Bucknell University. After graduation, she relocated to New Orleans to begin Tulane’s graduate program in organic chemistry. At Tulane, another type of chemistry took hold between the two graduate students, and Gene and Lois married 1957. Together they raised six children and were blessed with ten grandchildren. Sixty years after his graduation, Miller established a professorship in honor of Professor Joseph Boyer. It was Boyer who first introduced him to the mysteries of organic science, providing him with the expertise to do great things in chemical sciences. Tulane provided him with the fellowship that allowed him to complete his doctorate.

Shelton Hendricks (A&S ’63, G ’66, G ’67) was a senior at Tulane University, and he didn’t know where his future was headed. Then he enrolled in Arnold “Arnie” Gerall’s physiological psychology course, and the rousing lecturer made the science of behavioral biology come alive. “I had no intention of going into research until I took Arnie’s course my senior year,” says Hendricks. “I just loved his course and it changed the shape of my career.” Hendricks never forgot that charismatic man who had such an influence on his life and career. Gerall passed away in 2013, and Hendricks is honoring him by giving back to Tulane University School of Science and Engineering. His gift will complete the funding for an established award for student researchers, a cause that was close to Gerall’s heart. Following undergraduate graduation in 1963, Hendricks completed a masters and doctoral degree under Gerall’s tutelage at Tulane. Now retired, Hendricks served 43 years on the faculty of the University of Nebraska-Omaha in the Department of Psychology. “I met Arnie as an undergraduate student but did my graduate work under his direction. He was such a great role model as a scientist and teacher,” says Hendricks. “We remained colleagues and friends throughout his life.‘‘ Gerall was a noted behavorial neuroendocrinologist and a longtime faculty member in the Tulane Department of Psychology. Known as a dynamic teacher and inventive researcher, during the course of his career he mentored more than 30 doctoral students. Most of those students followed Gerall’s example with a career in research and academia. Gerall’s friends, colleagues and former students provided the initial funding for the Arnold A. Gerall Award for Distinction, which is awarded to an undergraduate or graduate student who has demonstrated excellence in neuroscience and psychology. Hendricks’ generosity has given the award an endowed status and it will now provide the awardee with funding for conference travel and a research stipend. “This award was what Arnie wanted,” says Hendricks. “He was such a big supporter of student research, and it’s a small encouragement for a student beginning their research career. I’m really happy to be able to do this.”

What if you could build any structure that you could imagine? Tulane University students will soon be able to create anything their imagination can create thanks to the vision of alumni and faculty. Located in a former mechanical services workshop, the Maker Space is a center for design, invention, innovation and fabrication. A 1000 square foot ideation gallery rises above 3000 square feet of shop floor installed with high-volume modern prototyping tools alongside traditional hand and power tools. “You can turn original creative ideas into a reality that you can hold in your hand,” says biomedical engineering professor Cedric Walker. “A student can come up with the idea, create it with a 3-D printer or laser cutter, and have that physical reality in his hands in just a few hours.” Walker’s enthusiasm and vision for the Maker Space made him an ideal candidate for the position of Maker-in-Chief. In that role he will help students from across the university have a safe place to experiment with their ideas. Tulane biomedical engineering graduate Leilani Stritter (E ’87) believed in Walker’s vision and wanted to support the future of the Maker Space. THE PROPOSED “One of my favorite professors was Dr. Cedric M A K E R S PA C E Walker,” says Stritter. “When I heard he was one of the R E N O V AT I O N early visionaries of the Maker Space and that he would SET IN THE be leading the charge, it seemed to make sense to give CURRENT SITE OF THE back to Tulane and pay it forward to future students by M A C H I N E S H O P. supporting his role as Maker-in-Chief.”

ALUMNI STEP FORWARD TO AID K-12 STEM For the past two years, the K-12 STEM education program at Tulane has offered high school girls a chance to learn about orthopaedic surgery and engineering. When funding for the Perry Initiative was threatened, Tulane alumni raised the resources needed to continue the program. “A classmate and fellow science and engineering board of advisor, Dr. Warren Bourgeois (A&S ‘78, M ‘82), and I got to thinking that this could be a place where our support could make a difference,” says orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Stephan McCollam (A&S ’78, M ’82). “Through the generosity of Dr. Bryan Hawkins (E ’79, M ’83), Warren and myself, we were able to underwrite the program for 2015.” The Perry Initiative inspires young women to become leaders in orthopaedic surgery and engineering, two fields where women are historically underrepresented. At Perry Initiative events, girls watch hands-on demonstrations, participate in creative problem-solving, learn orthopedic implant design process, and view mock surgical scenarios. “After over 25 years in practice and serving at the state and national level in leadership roles in my profession, I have seen very few female orthopedists enter the field,” says McCollam. “This is a wonderful program that inspires and prepares girls to look at bio-engineering and orthopaedics.” YOUNG The Perry Initiative has been a great success WOMEN FROM in its first two years at Tulane. Each year, the program has THROUGHOUT grown, demonstrating its impact in the New Orleans comLOUISIANA munity.

Walking to a classmate’s uptown house to have a home-cooked meal, spending long hours with a slide rule and leaving funny messages for the engineering dean. Those are all memories that the Class of 1963 will never forget. Now their legacy will live on for future generations of chemical engineering students through a new class scholarship. “The Class of 1963 is a very tight-knit group,” says Anne Robinson, chair of the Department of Chemical and BioIn 1894, Tulane molecular Engineering. “They always make a big University was push to try to get the entire class to come back for the first school every reunion.” It was during his 50th reunion that Clay Lewis in the South and (E ’63) first started discussing creating a chemical the third in the engineering scholarship in honor of the class.

These experiences inspired Lewis to establish the scholarship, which will give future generations the opportunity to have the same special experience that he did. And just like Lewis pushed for his classmates to come back to campus for their 50th reunion, he also encourages them to support the Class of 1963 scholarship fund. “Our students go out and do wonderful things in the world,” says Robinson. “Scholarships like this one keeps that momentum going. It enables students to attend Tulane when they otherwise wouldn’t be able to.” Lewis and his classmates hope to encourage other classes to come together and remember Tulane in this special way.

As technology advances so does our dependence on the latest products, but as a result our global energy consumption is growing at rapid rates. Daniel Shantz, inaugural Entergy Chair in Clean Energy Engineering at Tulane University, is working to find a way for you to continue to enjoy the latest technology while reducing our carbon footprint. “We all like to have energy whenever we want it,” says Shantz. “But the big challenge is to develop new technologies so we can sustainably produce that energy.” Shantz’s newly constructed lab plans to tackle that challenge on two fronts. He hopes to develop technology that will transform carbon dioxide emissions from air into usable products like plastics and fuel. Shantz also has creative ideas on how to effectively capture alternative fuels, such as cornbased ethanol, without excess waste and energy. “Many current alternative energy routes, such as biomass to fuels, have the challenge of large energy inputs to isolate the desired product,” says Shantz. “You often end up with a huge water management problem.” In his previous lab at SABIC, Shantz found that he could selectively capture certain molecules of value, from a mixture with many different molecules, in an energy efficient way. He hopes to expand on those findings at Tulane. “There are a lot of challenges that the planet faces and meeting these needs are not trivial,” says Shantz. “But we can all agree that it is an important challenge.”

CORPORATION PROMOTES STUDENT RESEARCH When Ben Rosenthal, a senior engineering physics major, got the opportunity to work in Professor Doug Chrisey’s lab, he was excited about the incredible opportunity. Now his research contributions have earned him the title of Schlumberger Scholar. Schlumberger, the world’s leading supplier of technology, integrated project management and information solutions to customers working in the oil and gas industry worldwide, donated $25,000 to support undergraduate and graduate students at the School of Science and Engineering. In addition to Rosenthal, graduate students Michael Hopkins, Alex Breaux and “George” Ezeh as well as undergraduate student Laurent BEN ROSENTHAL DelaFontaine were named Schlumberger Scholars. WAS CHOSEN Rosenthal’s project involves alternative energy production, AS ONE OF FIVE SCHLUMBERGER specifically the use of a hydrogen pump that draws power SCHOLARS FOR from a difference in temperature on different sides of the THE 2014-2015 device. Rosenthal grows nanoparticles for the pump and proACADEMIC YEAR. cesses them through the use of high-technology equipment including a scanning electron microscope and a specialized printer that uses nanoparticle ink. “I enjoy what I do in part because of the amazing equipment I get to work with, and the science is so interesting,” says Rosenthal. “I’m very excited to be a Schlumberger Scholar. They are involved in every area of energy production, and that really fits in line with what I want to do.”
Schlumberger also recently donated $8 million worth of in-kind software to be used by faculty members. This software is widely used in the industry, and will allow students to be familiar with the product as they enter the workplace.

In 2011, the National Institutes of Health and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced a comprehensive joint study to gauge the behavioral and health impacts of new government tobacco regulations. Little is known about the long-term effects of new tobacco products, such as e-cigarettes and second-hand vapor exposure. Due to tobacco’s well-documented health risks, or the stigma associated with accepting funds from tobacco companies, few scientists are entering the field. Altria Group is sponsoring research efforts at universities across the country in an attempt to bring in early career investigators. It granted $100,000 to the Tulane University School of Science and Engineering to support a 12-month doctoral stipend and research supplies for two Tulane students, including Cell & Molecular Biology scholar William (Chase) Anderson. Anderson will have the opportunity to compare the effects of cigarette smoke versus e-cigarette vapor on vascular endothelial cell tissues. Corporations and government agencies provide a majority of the research funds at universities in the United States, including Tulane. Tulane applies the same strict ethical standards and integrity protocols to all industry-sponsored research, regardless of the company. Dean Nicholas Altiero says he understands that accepting resources from tobacco companies is controversial. “This decision was not made lightly,” says Altiero. “We spent two years discussing the pros and cons at the highest levels of Tulane leadership. Ultimately, this is about getting our best scientists in the relevant fields to do this important research.”
