IPFW Featured Faculty Class of 2011:

Creating Knowledge
Hosni Abu-Mulaweh   William DeMott   James Moore   Hedayeh Samavati 

Universities exist in order to create and transfer knowledge. IPFW faculty are engaged in the creative process of research every day in our laboratories, studios, classrooms, and the surrounding community. These Featured Faculty embody IPFW's commitment to this most essential facet of university life.


The Featured Faculty lecture series runs each Friday in February at noon on the second floor of Helmke Library.

Hosni Abu-Mulaweh, professor of mechanical engineering. Abu-Mulaweh's research is about converting energy, using the principles of heat transfer, thermodynamics, and fluid mechanics.


William DeMott, professor of biology. DeMott studies a microcosm of the food chain--zooplankton--tiny aquatic animals comparable in size to a fleck of dandruff.


James Moore, professor of management. Moore's expertise is operations research, or applying analytical techniques to support decision making.

Winter Storms Shrink Blood Supply

Avalanche-o-donSince January 1, winter storms have forced the cancellation of over 750 blood drives across the country, resulting in a shortfall of more than 28,000 blood and platelet donations. In February, the Indiana-Ohio Region was forced to cancel over 20 blood drives. All blood types are needed, but type O-negative donors can make the difference between an adequate blood supply and a shortage.


Because the need for blood is constant, the American Red Cross is urging everyone who is able to schedule an appointment. Please call 1-800-REDCROSS or visit the Web site.
