Scientists at the Johns Hopkins University recently announced advances in the creation of a synthetic vitamin D, which could be used as an anti-cancer or anti-psoriasis drug, and a new class of biodegradable polymers for controlled drug delivery and in orthopedics. They also said they have identified two enzymes that can withstand high temperatures.The findings were presented at a meeting of the American Chemical Society in August.A synthetic vitamin D could alter the makeup of natural vitamin D so that it does not assist the growth of cancer cells but also does not disrupt other properties, such as helping the body absorb calcium.

Twenty years after opening its first large residence for students, the Maryland Institute College of Art plans to build a $16.5 million addition that will increase the number of undergraduates living on campus and help revitalize Baltimore's North Avenue corridor and northern Bolton Hill. College officials intend to break ground this fall on Commons II, a five-story building with 62 apartments that can accommodate about 240 students. When it opens in the fall of 2013, MICA will have on-campus housing for more than 1,000 students, up from practically none in 1991 and enough for more than half of its undergraduates.

When I was a Ph.D. student at Yale, I dreamed of working as a university professor, directing a research laboratory, and training students of my own. I have been a professor for a little over four years now. Of the lessons I have learned in this time, the one I have taken most to heart is that scientists at American universities spend far more time dreaming of research than actually carrying it out. By "dreaming," I mean that university scientists design...

Thank you for your portrayal of the recent downtown Baltimore sit-in ("'Occupy' protesters gather," Sept. 5). Reporter Peter Hermann 's account of a 53-year-old former real estate broker who quit her job to sell costume jewelry and now complains about not being able to afford "a bookkeeper" and a "web designer" brought home the degree of self-absorption, entitlement, neediness and sheer dweeb-iness of the assorted suburban PTA moms, tenured sociologists,...

Jessica Soto Perez was working toward a doctorate in biochemical engineering, hoping, her fellow students said, to one day return to her native Puerto Rico to teach. Yesterday, her classmates and professors at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, mourned the loss of a friend who, as one put it, "radiated her love for learning." Perez, a 26-year-old graduate student at UMBC, was fatally shot Tuesday night in the parking lot of the school's Catonsville campus by her husband, who then shot himself, witnesses told Baltimore County police.
