On Thursday, April 25, Dr. Vishnu Suppiramaniam, professor, Department of Drug Discovery & Development  and  director, Center for Neuroscience Initiative, will present “Establishing a Center of Neuroscience at Auburn” at the Discover Auburn Lecture Series sponsored by Auburn University Libraries. The lecture will begin at 3 p.m. in the Caroline Marshall Draughon Auditorium on the ground floor of the Ralph Brown Draughon Library.

Dr. Suppiramaniam will discuss how Auburn researchers will work in the new center to mitigate against mental, neurological and substance use disorders, which make up a substantial proportion of the world’s disease burden. A team of experts in chemistry, physiology, development, degeneration, and imaging of the brain are collaborating to develop a neuroscience center to increase fundamental knowledge about the brain and nervous system, and how that knowledge can be used to reduce the burden of neurological disease.

The public is welcome and a reception will follow the program.

On Thursday, March 7, Dr. Mark Liles, professor, Biological Sciences, will present “Drugs From Dirt - Development and Characterization of Novel Antimicrobial Compounds” at the Discover Auburn Lecture Series sponsored by Auburn University Libraries.  The lecture will begin at 3 p.m. in the Caroline Marshall Draughon Auditorium on the ground floor of Ralph Brown Draughon Library.

Dr. Liles’ research seeks to address the many disease-causing organisms that are resistant to current drug therapies. Researchers will test and develop new therapeutic strategies for treating infectious diseases through the study of antibiotic-producing bacterial cultures they have discovered in soil. These are potentially life-saving antibiotics that could have application in human medicine, agriculture, and veterinary practice.

A reception will follow the lecture and the public is welcome.

Auburn University Libraries has opened “John Jenkins Wilmore: Engineering Education”, a new exhibit in the Auburn University Libraries’ Special Collections & Archives Department. The exhibit tells the story of Wilmore’s life and work, including 55 years at Auburn, through his letters, essays, and photographs.

The archives recently acquired the papers of the former dean of engineering, which include Wilmore’s personal papers and family records dating back to 1834. Wilmore began his career at Auburn in 1888 when he designed a steam engine that was used to generate electricity for Langdon Hall and Old Main. He served as dean of engineering from 1907 until his death in 1943. Wilmore worked alongside Bolling Crenshaw, Luther Duncan, George Petrie, and many others who shaped the university during the beginning of the 20th century.

The exhibit will continue through December 2019 and is located on the ground floor of the Ralph Brown Draughon Library inside the Special Collections & Archive Department. It is open to the public during all regular Special Collections & Archives hours. Hours for Special Collections & Archives may be found here. For more information on the Wilmore papers, visit the SC&A page here.
