Welcome to the April Duke Physics Newsletter

Thursday, April 29, 2010
As the 2009-2010 school year comes to a close, it's time to look back at a year of achievements and progress among faculty, staff, graduate students, and undergraduates. Faculty and students have participated in research collaborations all over the world and have continued to win research grants, fellowships, and awards. We've presented our work in physics journals and international meetings, and we've been covered by the media. We've also developed a new graduate curriculum and are offering a new major in biophysics. Looking ahead to next year, we've recently welcomed 15 new graduate students to the program for fall of 2010. These 15 students were accepted out of a pool of almost 200 applicants and they will be the first to experience our new graduate curriculum. Students in the incoming class come from five countries and their research interests represent a variety of physics sub-disciplines. Congratulations to the class of 2010! We'll see you soon. We love to receive your input and submissions. We invite all alumni and current Duke community members to contribute photos, events, and information to news@phy.duke.edu. Thanks and Stay in Touch!
