NEWS FROM CHICAGO

PHYSICAL SCIENCES' OXTOBY TO HEAD POMONA COLLEGE
David W. Oxtoby, dean of Chicago's Division of Physical Sciences since 1995, has been named the ninth president of Pomona College, effective July 1: http://pomona.edu/events/news/NewsItems/021003president.shtml

CUM LAUDE: HONORS FOR 17 PROFESSORS
In recent months five Chicago faculty members received distinguished-service professorships while 12 of their colleagues received named professorships. For profiles of the group--which includes an expert on modern South Asian history and historiography and a specialist in spatial statistics--go to: http://chronicle.uchicago.edu/030206/appointments.shtml

RESEARCH AT CHICAGO

BREATHING LESSONS: INSECT MECHANISM HAS HUMAN PARALLEL
Using the Advanced Photon Source, scientists at Argonne National Laboratory, the University, and the Field Museum have discovered a surprising new insect breathing mechanism that is analogous to lung ventilation in humans. Beetles, crickets, ants, butterflies, cockroaches, dragonflies, and other insects all display the mechanism to varying degrees. http://chronicle.uchicago.edu/030206/insects.shtml

PHYSICIANS FALL DOWN ON CHRONIC-DISEASE CARE
A nationwide survey of physician organizations conducted by researchers at Chicago and at the University of California, Berkeley, shows that millions of patients with chronic diseases do no receive quality care because recommended care-management processes are not always practiced. For more on the survey's results, published in the January 22 Journal of the American Medical Association, go to: http://chronicle.uchicago.edu/030206/care-manage.shtml
