Tainted Chinese infant formula has sickened thousands of babies and is blamed for four deaths in China. Could it happen here? My article in the LA Times says 'no, but...' Baby formula has been deemed safe, but FDA investigators are scouring the shelves of Asian food markets for illegal imports. New concerns are cropping up about other foods that may contain powdered milk products, such as coffee creamers, baking mixes, and frozen desserts.

The University at Albany has a new slogan and with it a new push to accentuate those areas in which it excels. I wrote a couple articles in the fall issue of the alumni magazine about two of these areas: Modern Vision and Life-Enhancing Research. I profiled the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering and some of the research being done in the new Life Sciences Building.
