Global health, renewable energy, scholar profiles, interview with the Provost and more.

The Summer 2010 edition of the Gates Scholar Magazine features issues that matter to scholars and alumni – such as global health improvement, renewable energy in Africa and violence against women. A forum on the role of spiritual beliefs in research and a piece on free will and politics provide interesting topics for debate.The issue also includes alumni updates, personal profiles of scholars and an interview with Provost of the Trust Dr Gordon Johnson.

Cameron Taylor, Editor-in-Chief of the magazine, said: “I’m delighted with this issue of the magazine. Kristin and I were determined to create a revamped publication maintaining a balance of contextual and aesthetic appeal that would reflect the Gates community identity. Doug Brumley’s amazing photography – as well as thoughtful forum and article contributions by scholars and alumni – were indispensable to achieving this. It is also fantastic to be able to highlight innovations such as Amber North’s academic forums and David Green’s new book.”
