Dear students, faculty, and staff,
Good Monday morning.
I hope this weekend gave everyone the time to rest and get ready for a productive week at Louisiana Tech. Thanks to all of you for your tremendous support and cooperation during this time.
Congratulations to our Bulldog football team for their exciting victory in Hattiesburg, Mississippi! We look forward to the season’s first home game at 6 p.m. this Saturday against Houston Baptist. Watch out LA Tech Athletics website (LATechSports.com) and social media (@LATechSports) for more information on this week’s game.
This week, we will continue to partner with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Louisiana Department of Health, and the Louisiana National Guard on our program of free COVID-19 testing for our community. Everyone – students, faculty, staff, and our Ruston neighbors – can come by for a screening test between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday at Argent Pavilion near the Thomas Assembly Center.
To make the testing move quickly, please register online at https://www.doineedacovid19test.com/Ruston_LA_1462.html and print your testing voucher.
Last week, we were able to provide testing services for about 1,000 people from across the community. Your response has been excellent, and we need to continue through this week.
New Frontiers seminar
There’s still time to register for today’s New Frontiers in Biomedical Research seminar – the first event in this year’s series. For seven years, we’ve welcomed researchers from throughout the country, and the 2020-21 series is no different.
The first seminar of the year will be held at 3:30 p.m. today and is being brought to you via webex. It will focus on The Biology and Pathology of SARS-CoV2 and COVID-19. Dr. Barbara Osborne, Professor of Veterinary and Animal Sciences at UMass Amherst will share research on the immune system and its response to SARS-CoV2 and Dr. Gordon Love (Louisiana Tech, ‘73), Professor of Pathology at LSU School of Medicine in New Orleans will share his findings related to COVID-19 pathology and the tissue damage sustained by those suffering from the disease.
No matter your area of academic interest, I encourage you to register for the free seminar to learn more about cutting-edge, multidisciplinary research and discovery. Special thanks to Dr. Jamie Newman and Dr. Mary Caldorera-Moore for their superb leadership in organizing this seminar series that is having such a positive impact across our campus!
Thank you for continuing your work to stay safe and healthy. Please remember to maintain physical distance and wear your masks. It’s great to see everyone on campus – let’s remember to stay safe both on and off campus to keep our neighbors safe.
