The London Global Gateway Annual Review presents a roundup of the year’s conferences and events, which bring together academics and experts from around the world and participating Notre Dame faculty, as well as news and updates from the academic programs in London.
The XVth International Workshop on Molecular and Cellular Biology of Plasminogen Activation began this week at the University of Notre Dame Global Gateway in Rome. Held every other year since 1985, this year’s workshop will host more than 85 scientists from 16 countries.
Through a new model of cooperation with several universities in Asia, Notre Dame students are participating in research projects and gaining workplace experience with global corporations, including IBM, GE, Honeywell, and Oracle.
The University of Notre Dame has received $133.7 million in research funding for fiscal year 2015. This is an all-time record for the University and $20 million more than last year.
Huge thanks to all who participated in the Study Abroad Fair on September 14, 2015. Students wishing to learn more about specific programs are encouraged to attend the appropriate information sessions.
A group of thirteen international high school students are currently participating in the first ever International Summer Physics Institute (iSPI). The two-week program, July 27-August 7, has brought the high school students to Notre Dame from China and Ireland to explore their interest in physics.
The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering works with the London Global Gateway to offer rising juniors the chance to spend six weeks living and studying at Imperial College London. This summer, 28 students participated in the program. Marissa Martinez from Seattle, Washington, and Daniel Quigley from Mahopac, New York, both CBE majors (class of 2017), offered their thoughts on the experience.
Twenty doctoral students from Europe, Latin America, and the United States are participating in the Santander International Summer School on molecular catalysts from July 14-24 at the Heidelberg Center for Latin America in Santiago, Chile. Organized by the University of Notre Dame, University of Heidelberg in Germany, and the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile (PUC) in Santiago, the summer school will highlight the fundamentals and current developments in the field of molecular catalysts, with an emphasis on catalysts as synthetic tools.
The first Joint Summer School in Computational Chemistry was held at Heidelberg University in Germany July 6-11. Organized by the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Notre Dame and the Institute of Inorganic Chemistry and Interdisciplinary Center for Scientific Computing at Heidelberg University, the six day program provided the opportunity for students who primarily work on experimental research to combine their studies with theory-based approaches, in particular with electronic-structure-based computational chemistry.
Four Notre Dame students currently studying at the University of Oxford were recently invited to meet Lord Patten of Barnes, chancellor of the University, alongside Warren von Eschenbach, assistant provost for Europe and director of the London Global Gateway, and Michael Hannigan, a Notre Dame alumnus (Arts and Letters and Law) who is pursuing a master’s degree in higher education at Oxford.…

Notre Dame travelers have likely heard about cases of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (MERS-CoV) in both South Korea and China. Notre Dame International (NDI) is monitoring this situation.
The 2015 Rome Seminar, "Philology Among the Disciplines," organized by Notre Dame professors W. Martin Bloomer, Carsten Dutt, and Brad S. Gregory and co-sponsored by Italian Studies at Notre Dame, the Nanovic Institute for European Studies, the Notre Dame Institute for Advanced Study, and the Office of the Vice President for Research, is set to run from Sunday, June 14th, to Saturday, June 27th.
Noted international scholars from diverse disciplines will discuss the role and relevance of philology in its relations to archaeology, anthropology, history, art history, classics, law, philosophy, and theology.

Students studying abroad in Rome during spring 2015 curated a photo exhibit entitled Negli Occhi dell'altro: Cinque americani raccontano le periferie di Roma (In the other's eyes, five Americans portray the Roman peripheries), which was organized in collaboration with Centro Culturale Roma at Il Cantuccio al Senato and opened May 5, 2015. Notre Dame collaborates with several organizations in Rome, including the Community of Sant’Egidio…
During the summer of 2014, Patrick Butler and Patrick Valencia interned at the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) in Dublin, Ireland. Both internships were sponsored by the Keough-Naughton Institute for Irish Studies at the University of Notre Dame. Without that support, Valencia said, he wouldn’t have been able to “have this wonderful experience living abroad.”
“I knew I wanted to major in Irish; I did not expect to end up in Ireland my first summer,” said Caelin Miltko, a sophomore in the College of Arts and Letters. During the summer of 2014, Miltko interned at the National Folklore Collection of Ireland based at University College Dublin. Her work centered on digitizing the Schools Collection, a group of manuscripts gathered by Irish schoolchildren in the 1930s featuring stories and traditions from their families.
