Improving police cars, recovering lost manuscripts: UH research day delivers

HOUSTON, March 28, 2006 From hard sciences and engineering to psychology and literature, a treasure trove of projects will be showcased at an event to focus on cutting-edge research and scholarly programs at the University of Houston.

UH's sixth biennial Research and Scholarship Day will take place from 9 a.m. to noon, Friday, March 31 in the Conrad Hilton Ballroom at the UH Hilton Hotel. Exhibits describing various projects and research programs will be on public display with UH researchers and scholars on hand to give demonstrations and to discuss their research. Held every two years, this event celebrates research and scholarship activities happening on campus and showcases the university's outstanding research efforts and potential for intra- and interdisciplinary collaborations. In addition to being open to the public, Houston-area educators, members of business and industry, Texas Medical Center personnel and others from the area's academic community will be in attendance.

"Research is an integral part of our educational mission," said Arthur C. Vailas, vice chancellor and vice president for research and intellectual property management at UH. "We have many exciting research programs taking place on our campus, and we support an atmosphere that enhances scientific and creative activities."

Featured at this year's event are projects ranging from recovering lost Latino writings that date back from the American colonial period by way of the Arte Pblico Press to highlighting the growing partnership between academia, industry and the law enforcement community in fighting crime with special high-tech police cars courtesy of the "Smart Police Car Test and Evaluation Project." Other projects on display will include exhibits and demonstrations from the Texas Learning and Computational Center from its state-of-the-art computation, visualization and educational facilities for environmental studies, biological, biomedical and energy res
