Daniel A. Henderson, president of PhoneTel Communications, Inc. and a member of the Albert Dorman Honors College Board of Visitors, assisted the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History in the acquisition of two prototypes and related documentation for a pioneering wireless picturephone technology developed in 1993. Henderson recently was awarded six U.S. patents for innovation incorporated in the wireless system and device. The donation adds to a previous collection of wireless technology that Henderson donated to the museum's Information Technology and Communications Division in 2003. >>

Researchers at  NJIT have developed an inexpensive solar cell that can be painted or printed on flexible plastic sheets. “The process is simple,” said lead researcher and author Somenath Mitra, PhD, professor and acting chair of NJIT's Department of Chemistry and Environmental Science. “Someday homeowners will even be able to print sheets of these solar cells with inexpensive home-based inkjet printers.” >>
Dan Watts is on a crusade. The NJIT research professor would like the pharmaceutical industry to adopt safer, greener, more efficient and more effective manufacturing processes. Last week Watts brought his crusade down to the grass roots level at a five-day workshop at which 16 faculty from universities around the nation developed ways to encourage their students to pursue careers in the pharmaceutical industry so this new way of thinking can flourish. >>

Humanities Professor Elected A Fellow of the International Biographical Association Karl W. Schweizer, PhD, a professor in the department of humanities, was elected a Fellow of the International Biographical Association in Cambridge, England. Graduate Student Receives Schering-Plough Science and Innovation Award Amit Goyal, a chemical engineering major at NJIT, was one of 13 graduate students throughout the country who received the 2007 Schering-Plough Science & Innovation Award. Selected by the academic faculty at their respective schools, the students have the opportunity to present their individual research during a two-day symposium attended by their faculty advisors and researchers from Schering-Plough Research Institute, the company's research and development arm. Architecture Student Awarded Scholarship at National Consulting Firm Joshua Prol, an architecture major at NJIT, was awarded a paid internship at GreenbergFarrow, the national planning, architectural, engineering and development consulting firm, as part of its University Partnership scholarship program. >>
Tiffany Small, systems manager of NJIT's Office of International Students and Faculty (OIS&F), served as the program chair for the fsaATLAS track for the March 2007 SunGard Summit conference. This is only the second year that SunGard Higher Education has had a track solely dedicated to its fsaATLAS software, used by OIS&F and the Office of University Admissions to report international student and exchange visitor data to the Department of Homeland Security. As a result of her efforts, the number and variety of fsaATLAS sessions increased, as well as the number of session attendees. >>
Senior outfielders Derrick McCain and Kwesi Mitchell were the home run heroes for NJIT in its 8-7 10-inning baseball win over visiting Felician College Sunday afternoon at Bears & Eagles Riverfront Stadium. Sunday's game was played before an Alumni Day crowd of 300 that included numerous former Highlander standouts. >>
Students at NJIT work side by side with professors on the university's most prominent research projects—projects that could lead to new technologies in fields such as biomedical engineering and cancer research. During the Third Annual Provost's Student Research Showcase on April 11, top students will illustrate that research with poster presentations, which will run from 1-4 p.m. in the Campus Center Atrium. The event is free and open to the public. >>
A breakthrough patent awarded to an NJIT researcher will enable manufacturers to create a device to uncover miniscule amounts of airborne pollutants. Using computer chip technology, Somenath Mitra, PhD, professor and chair of NJIT's Department of Chemistry and Environmental Sciences, has developed and patented what could eventually become a simple keychain device to detect tiny, though potentially lethal, amounts of airborne carcinogens. >>
Anette Hosoi, PhD, assistant professor in the department of mechanical engineering at MIT, will speak on "Optimizing Low Reynolds Number Locomotion" on Feb. 9 at 11:30 a.m., Cullimore Lecture Hall II. >>
