Winter 2010: Research Abloom

Research comes in many forms, from the traditional hypothesis-based scientific model to the scholarly compilation of facts and stories that were never combined before.

In recent months, Pacific’s faculty and student scholars have benefited from a new focus on research and the awarding of major grant support. All of this has helped spur activity on a variety of inquiries in the natural sciences, social sciences, healthcare and teaching. In fact, there is so much happening on the University’s four campuses that we call this issue "Research Abloom."

For the full digital version of the magazine, click on the cover graphic on this page; for more information on what the four colleges are up to and a video about two Pacific researchers, please see our "Web Extras."

And as usual, please let us know what you think at
