The 2008 edition of Horizons magazine will be delivered across campus over the next few weeks, as well as to educational leaders and decision makers throughout the country.

This year’s edition highlights several of NAU’s research achievements and other accomplishments. Articles include:

  • Several researchers who are working to beat cancer at its own game
  • Loretta Mayer’s research on women’s health, which has an offshoot that could lead to discoveries that would radically change the way animals are spayed
  • How the Martin-Springer Institute is applying lessons learned from the Holocaust to promote moral courage, altruism and tolerance
  • Anthropology professor Kelley Hays-Gilpin’s expertise on Native American rock art and its reflection of ancient society
  • The university’s multi-pronged approach to regain the nation’s advantage in math and science
  • Paul Beier and his work on “road crossings” for larger animals to help them thrive

A pdf version is available online.
