Call for Research Cluster Proposals for 2017-18

The DCII offers a home for informal collaborative and interdisciplinary research clusters who wish to meet together at least twice during any given semester to discuss shared interests. These clusters should be open to faculty and graduate students from across the campus and should each have two faculty or grad student conveners responsible for the cluster’s activities. We welcome participants from other universities in the DFW area as well as from the broader community. Deadline for Proposals is May 20. For more information: http://www.smu.edu/Dedman/DCII/Programs/ResearchClusters

Dallas’ Most Innovative Health Care Startup: BioLum

Dallas Innovates Originally Posted: March 9, 2017 The Tritex Group is always on the hunt for the latest and greatest talent in Dallas’ startup community. As one out of 10 people in the U.S. suffer from asthma, it did not take long to find a group of three hungry entrepreneurs who are innovating asthma management. New technology has been developed to help parents and patients better manage the chronic illness on a day to day basis. Yes, there is an app for that, thanks to Dallas-based BioLum Sciences. Started by three former Southern Methodist University students, Edward Allegra, Jack Reynolds, and Miguel Quimbar, BioLum Sciences is entering its third year of operation. Their product is a mobile health solution for asthma management. The device analyzes [...]

Meet the 10 People Protecting Dallas’ Natural Gifts

DMagazine Originally Posted: March, 2017 These conservationists are on the front lines of a battle to save the Trinity River landscape. Tim Dalbey An archaeologist and paleontologist, Dalbey has studied the Great Trinity Forest for more than two decades. Of particular interest is the area around Big Spring. Dalbey, who earned his doctorate from SMU, is known as the man to talk to when it comes to the Native American tribes (the Caddo, among them) that settled there as early as 11,000 years ago.
