I was proud when many of our staff members braved the August heat last week as volunteers for Cougar First Impressions, a program to help new students navigate our campus for the first time. With their highly visible red T-shirts and welcoming smiles, they sent a clear message that UH is a university that cares about its students.
I am always proud of the faculty of the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics. As researchers and teachers, they are among the best in the nation. I hope you enjoy the features about Associate Professor Ioannis Kakadiaris, who is developing imaging technology to help doctors prevent heart attacks, and Professor Arnold Eskin, whose research laboratory provided an outstanding experience for a local high school student.
Our alumni are yet another source of pride. Herman D. Suit, MD, DPhil, who graduated from the University of Houston with a degree in biology, was honored by the UH Alumni Association this spring for his considerable achievements. Our science writer, Noelle Heinze, caught up with Dr. Suit for a personal interview.
I hope you enjoy reading these stories and others in this issue of Momentum. Please let me know what you think.
