Physicist remembered for research

    He came to San Diego as a senior research advisor at General Atomics from 1956 to 1967, at which time he became a UCSD professor of physics and a professor for Advanced Study. He later became the director of the Institute for Fusion Studies at the University of Texas. Rosenbluth eventually returned to La Jolla, and retired in 1993 as a professor emeritus of physics.

    Rosenbluth was known by his colleagues as a leader in helping to foster international collaboration in the study of fusion and physics research. Family members have requested that in lieu of flowers, donations be sent to the Marshall Rosenbluth Memorial Fund in the Division of Physical Sciences at UCSD.

    Scripps celebrates hundredth birthday

    Scripps Institution of Oceanography officially turned 100 years old on Sept. 26. The centennial celebration continues with a series of public events, science presentations and various activities planned in the upcoming month.

    One of the events includes an open house on Oct. 25 when visitors can meet Scripps researchers and see various scientific exhibits for free. The Scripps Pier will also be open to the public from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. In addition, Scripps invites the public to celebrate its Centennial through its virtual tours, various Web sites and the Birch Aquarium, where admission is $1 off if visitors say ìHappy Birthday Scrippsî at the ticket booth.

    As one of the largest institutes for research and graduate training, SIO has grown to over 300 research programs in a variety of scientific areas. It also operates an academic fleet with four oceanographic research ships and one research platform.

    School of Pharmacy breaks ground

    In a groundbreaking ceremony and other activities throughout the week, the class of 2007 entered the new UCSD School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Studies on Sept. 25. During the ceremony, students, staff and dignitaries gathered to break ground on the 104,000-square-foot facility that will be the headquarters for the new school. The four-story building will cost $42 million and will include classrooms, care facilities and laboratories to aid in research for drug information, pharmaceutical chemistry, biological sciences and computational studies. It will also include a 250-seat auditorium that will be used for lectures, research facilities and fundraising events. The building, which is located south of the Basic Science Building on the School of Medicine campus, is scheduled to open by fall 2005.

    The class of 2007 was also part of the celebration and attended a White Coat Ceremony, where they each received white coats that will be used during their four years of study. The class was selected out of 510 applicants and includes 26 students, 14 women and 12 men. These students come from 17 different undergraduate colleges throughout California and the United States. The students were chosen not only for academic achievements, but also for volunteer experience and leadership skills in their activities.

    The School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences is the second publicly-supported school of pharmacy in California. It was approved by the Regents in 2000 and the first class of students entered the school in Sept. 2002.
