Elkin Isaac Alumni Lecture (-)

The 26th Annual Elkin R. Isaac Student Research Symposium

Speaker: Dr. Samata Singhi, '05

Deadly Virus Hunter Nathan Wolfe Shares Exploits as Albion College Isaac Symposium Keynote (-)

The "Indiana Jones of virus hunting," internationally respected biologist Nathan Wolfe discusses the exciting work of pandemic disease prevention for Albion College's 2015 Joseph S. Calvaruso Keynote lecture, capping Albion College's Isaac Student Research Symposium. Wolfe takes the stage at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 23, in Albion College's Goodrich Chapel. The Symposium opens Wednesday, April 22, at 7:30 p.m. in Norris Science Center Towsley Hall, as international health expert and child neurology resident Samata Singhi, '05, presents the Symposium's Alumni lecture.

Hailed by such publications as Time and Rolling Stone for his global contribution, Wolfe travels the world to track, study, and eradicate the next pandemic before it strikes. He has established field research sites in countries most at risk for developing deadly animal-to-human diseases like HIV, SARS and West Nile virus. Wolfe's proactive approach to disease prevention has the potential to save millions of lives worldwide, and he has received over $16 million in support of his work, from Google, the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and the U.S. Department of Defense, among others.

At Albion, Singhi's academic and co-curricular work in the U.S. and in India were the basis of an honors thesis that earned her the Maurice L. Branch Award for outstanding research and scholarship in economics. Singhi earned a master's degree in international health from the London School of Economics and Political Science then graduated from the medical school at Case Western Reserve University, where she focused on pediatric neurology. Singhi is currently chief resident for the Child Neurology Program at Boston Children’s Hospital/Harvard Medical School.

From 8 a.m. through 3 p.m. on Thursday, April 23, more than 100 Albion students will present research papers and other scholarship during the Elkin R. Isaac Research Symposium. The Symposium honors alumnus "Ike" Isaac, '48, who served for 25 years at Albion as a coach, professor and athletic director. Isaac later taught and served as athletic director for the University of the Pacific. The Symposium was established in 1991 by Isaac's former students and team members.

All Symposium events are free and open to the public. For further information, see the Symposium Web page, http://www.albion.edu/isaac/ or contact Symposium coordinator Michael VanHouten at mvanhouten@albion.edu or 517/629-0382.

Bobbitt Visual Arts Center
5:00-6:15 pm
Friday, April 24, 2015

Charles Crupi believed that poetry matters and that poets matter and that all the finest poets were once young poets. Over 30 years ago Charles acted on those beliefs. In order to acknowledge, value, and encourage the iimportant work of high school poets, he started what he called "The Michigan High School Poetry Contest" and what we now call "The Charles Crupi Memorial Poetry Contest."

Please come and help us celebrate!  Introduction of the contest winners, poetry readings, and a toast to all things poetry are included in the celebration. Light refreshments will also be served.

Crupi Poetry Contest Brings Michigan High School Poets to Albion (-)

Albion College's English Department announces its annual Charles Crupi Memorial Poetry Contest event Friday, April 24, at 5 p.m. in the Bobbitt Visual Arts Center.

The event will include refreshments and presentation of poetry and poets. Four winners were chosen from entries submitted from high schools across Michigan.

A highlight of the event will be presentation of the second group of teachers invited to the Charles Crupi Society for Excellence in the Teaching of Poetry. This award "recognizes the incredible and important work of teachers," says Albion College English professor Jess Roberts. She explained that Crupi "believed that all students could learn to read and to write poetry and that we are all the better for it."

This year's Crupi Society inductees are David Griffith from Interlochen Arts Academy and Albion College English professor Helena Mesa, who will also serve as the event's guest poet.


One of Albion's most popular professors for some 35 years, Crupi retired from the faculty in 2009, passing away in 2010. During his long tenure as the English department chair, Crupi established the Michigan High School Poetry Contest, now renamed in his memory.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact department secretary Shannon Aikins, saikins@albion.edu or 517/629-0232.
