Central Campus sports some new sculpturestwo anchors from 19th-century sailing ships. The anchors were recently moved from North Campus when the Center for Great Lakes and Aquatic Sciences (CGLAS) moved to new quarters in the C.C. Little and Dennison buildings.
Seen with the anchors are Svetlana Rudnicka (left) and Nergui Soninkhisig, visiting scientists working this summer in CGLAS facilities.
Rudnicka, a fisheries research scientist from Varna, Bulgaria, is working the David Jude, CGLAS and School of Natural Resources and Environment research scientist.
Soninkhishig, from the Department of Botany/Biological Research and Training, State University of Mongolia, Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, is working with Mark Edlund, a CGLAS research fellow, in the phytoplankton laboratory facilities of Eugent Stoermer, professor of natural resources, CGLAS research scientist and Herbarium research scientist.

Richard Adelman, research scientist, Institute of Gerontology, and professor of biological chemistry, is collaborating with developer Dean Solden to offer intellectual and cultural programming, including lectures and concerts in the new facility.
Adelman is spearheading an effort to stimulate contact between residents of the facility and members of the U-M community, including faculty, research scientists, performing artists and students. He also plans to use the facility as a field site for pilot studies with older adults.
University Living will draw upon the resources of the U-M community to provide assistance for the bodies, minds and spirits of our residents, Solden says.
Nationwide, about 1.2 million people live in about 30,000 assisted-living facilities that offer a range of personal and medical services for the frail elderly who are too healthy to need skilled nursing services on a 24-hour basis but who are no longer able to live on their own.
