fundraising competition as well as a live-streaming broadcast featuring many elements of the University, including key areas of Notre Dame Research.

On Sunday, April 24, watch Director of the Center for Research Computing Jarek Nabrzyski take a live, three-dimensional scan of Mike Golic’s head. Later on that evening, hear from Mollie Limb, a student at the University, discussing the transportation program she started through the Harper Cancer Research Institute to help cancer patients get to and from their scheduled appointments.

The next morning, April 25, Brett Peters, assistant director of the Notre Dame Linked Experimental Ecosystem Facility (ND-LEEF), will discuss the eagle nest at St. Patrick’s County Park and their efforts to fund a live, in-nest eagle camera. You can view the current eagle camera 24/7 at http://environmentalchange.nd.edu/programs/nd-leef/eagles/.

In the afternoon don’t miss Alex Perkins, Eck Family Assistant Professor of Biological Sciences, and Katherine Taylor, associate director and director of global health training at the Eck Institute for Global Health, as they talk all about Notre Dame’s research on the Zika virus.

Later Richard Taylor, associate vice president for research and professor of chemistry and biochemistry, will provide a live tour of the first dedicated research building, McCourtney Hall. Construction on the facility will be complete this coming summer and will be fully open for the 2016 fall semester.

These events and many more will highlight the innovative and ground-breaking research taking place at the University of Notre Dame. To watch the festivities live and vote for Notre Dame Research entities participating in the fundraising competition, please visit notredameday.nd.edu.
