In 1841, Blessed Basil Anthony Moreau, a French priest and the founder of the Congregation of Holy Cross, sent Rev. Edward Sorin, C.S.C., to the northern end of the Diocese of Vincennes to set up a new school for boys.
Moreau’s educational philosophies, outlined in his 1856 work, “Christian Education,” set his intentions for the study of science at the new university he had a key role in founding the following year — the University of Notre Dame. At a time when many religious were skeptical about how science and theology could co-exist in one institution, his thoughts were clear.…
Inaugural summit in rare disease advocacy demonstrates how students, faculty, and biopharmaceutical companies can work together to bring about new treatments.
Professor Marya Lieberman and the Distributed Pharmaceutical Analysis Lab (DPAL) at the University of Notre Dame today announced a partnership with ARTiFACTS, creator of the world’s first blockchain-based platform for scientific and academic research, to develop a prototype solution for tracking pharmaceutical chain-of-custody information in real-time using distributed ledger technology. Working with ARTiFACTS, DPAL will record all physical handling and research metadata starting from the point-of-purchase of prescription drugs and sustained throughout the testing, analysis and reporting requirements.
