VP named for human resources
Charlene Moore Hayes of N.C. State to succeed retiring
Charlene Moore Hayes views her
greatest strength as "relationship building." As the
university's newly appointed vice president for human
resources, Hayes will undoubtedly utilize this talent as
she helps prepare Johns Hopkins for the expected growing
pains associated with the upgrading of many of its
business-related services and functions.
Restoration begins on wet books
In what has become a tale of two cities, the nearly 8,500
recently water-damaged historic books from the university's
George Peabody Library continue their restoration process
in an upstate New York facility, while back in Baltimore
the Mount Vernon Place library itself is undergoing a
large-scale dehumidification procedure in an effort to
"stabilize" the environment.
Hopkins obtains powerful genotyping
Ahead of other U.S. academic institutions, The Johns
Hopkins University School of Medicine and its
McKusick-Nathans Institute of Genetic Medicine have pooled
resources to obtain a commercial system capable of
processing hundreds of DNA samples and
determining up to 600,000 genotypes a day.
