Art in the President's Report
Images of scientific phenomena ranging from the distant
reaches of space to the innermost workings of neurons are
featured in this year's report. Taken from the work of Uni-
versity researchers across Grounds, these images and their
related research have practical applications in health care,
environmental studies, engineering, and many other dis-
ciplines. With private support generated by the Campaign
for the University of Virginia and other resources, the Uni-
versity is strengthening its capacity to produce innovative
science and technology programs to educate the leaders
who will use new knowledge to shape the future.
The Cover
The image of brain nerve cells shows structural changes
that help scientists and physicians understand the develop-
ment of epileptic seizures. Researchers in the Department
of Neuroscience have identified key neural events that are
precursors to certain types of epileptic seizures. By knowing
