I would like to congratulate University of Michigan College of Engineering student Katherine Sebeck on her selection as a 2013-2014 fellow for the J. Robert Beyster Computational Innovation Graduate Fellows Program. During her time as a fellow, it is my understanding that Katherine will pursue computational materials simulations of the dynamic polymerization of the epoxy/graphite interface.

This work could have implications for improvements in the area of fuel efficiency. I hope to have the opportunity to meet Katherine when I return to Michigan this fall for Homecoming.

I see that J. Craig Venter Institute recently announced a gift that Betty and I made to the organization. The gift will be used to help complete construction of the Institute’s sustainable laboratory and programs in microbial genomics in marine environments.

It’s no secret that I have long been an admirer of Craig and the work that his talented team is doing on a variety of scientific fronts. It is good to see this kind of pure scientific research being done here in San Diego, and I look forward to seeing the results of their work.

– Bob
