The first class of GW’s School of Medicine and Health Sciences (SMHS) Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Medicine certificate program students were welcomed to Campus this week. Students in the program will use the recently completed chemistry, biology and physics teaching labs, a construction project valued at more than $3 million. The new teaching labs will allow for expansion of additional health science programs on Campus, including bioinformatics and medical lab sciences.

GW is making a strategic investment in the growing field of big data and analytics. Recently, Ali Eskandarian, dean of GW’s Virginia Science & Technology Campus (VSTC), assumed a leadership role as co-chair of the Northern Virginia Technology Council’s (NVTC) new Big Data & Analytics Committee. The Committee builds on GW’s partnership with NVTC and Attain LLC to sponsor a research report conducted by Chmura Economics & Analytics and released in May at a jointly organized big data symposium hosted at VSTC.
Imagine the scene. A 9.0 earthquake hit Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in March 2011 and triggered a tsunami with 46-foot high waves. The seawall was overwhelmed and three of its six nuclear reactors melted down due to the loss of electrical power from the flooding, resulting in the largest nuclear incident since Chernobyl. The disaster sparked new interest in the behavior of nuclear reactor cores during earthquakes, leading to an international interdisciplinary research project.
The George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences introduces a new program that offers candidates the opportunity to build a strong foundation towards a new and rewarding career in medicine.
The 2014-2015 academic year officially began on August 25th and brought with it a distinctly new feel to the Virginia Science and Technology Campus. Innovation Hall is now home to over 180 accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing students from the GW School of Nursing (SON) and 150 pharmacy doctoral students through our partnership with Shenandoah University.
