Joe Raiker's research on diagnosing ADHD was highlighted by the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation
Properly handled, information provided by parents and teachers should help doctors determine with greater clarity whether a child has attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). That’s the premise of a study published March 5 in the Journal of the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry.
When students see their science classmates as very interested in the class, they are more likely to develop an interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) careers, according to the national study led by FIU professors Zahra Hazari and Geoff Potvin and published recently in Science Advances.
Mayor Philip Stoddard, an FIU biology professor and Faculty Mentor who was inspired by several California cities that passed similar ordinances, is pushing for new residential construction in South Miami to be equipped with solar panels.
FIU’s Institute of Water and Environment was one of the summit’s supporting partners. Institute researchers gave presentations and led workshops, including marine ecologist James Fourqurean, aquatic ecologist Evelyn Gaiser, geologist Rene Price, ecologist Joel Trexler and wetland ecologist Tiffany Troxler.
FIU researchers were awarded $7,642,368 in May 2017. Here is a listing of awards received by Faculty in the Faculty Mentor Program.
Timothy F. Page, associate professor in the Department of Health Policy & Management, and faculty mentor program member, found that despite declines in revenue few businesses changed their prices, inventories or staff levels. This was consistent with the belief that the downturn would be temporary and business would return once the outbreak was over.
In the grand scheme of Dade County, South Miami doesn't matter. The oversize village of 12,000 souls wedged between Kendall and Coral Gables is known as a quiet place to live if it's known at all. That's why Philip Stoddard's tale is all the more remarkable.
Philip Stoddard, mayor of South Miami, professor and faculty mentor program member, sees zero benefits to the president’s decision to leave the Paris Climate Agreement.
At the 2017 Florida Annual Meeting and Exposition, three Emerging Young Investigators of the American Chemical Society were highlighted: Dr. Yan-Yan Hu from FSU, Dr. Francisco Fernandez-Lima from FIU, and Dr. Eugene DePrince from FSU. These young investigators are being recognized for their early independent work, which is quickly gaining recognition in their respective fields. Join me in congratulating Dr. Francisco Fernandez-Lima for this well-deserved professional achievement!
Sakhrat Khizroev, an electrical engineer, physicist and professor at the College of Engineering & Computing and the Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine, in collaboration with other co-inventors, has developed a new physical model to describe how nanotechnology can be used to treat cancer.
