It sits on the edge of campus - all crazy angles and shiny pleats and looking like something from out of this world. It doesn't match anything around it. It's confusing and different and yet, somehow it makes sense by the very fact that it's nonsensical. Many people love it. Some people hate it. But everyone feels something when they look at it - which is exactly what art is supposed to do.
MSU's Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum is big and bold and makes itself known, just like the architect who brought it to life. Zaha Hadid, the world-renowned, incredible talent who designed the Broad at MSU, passed away suddenly last week. I was saddened to learn that the world has lost this daring artistic force at far too young an age. I consider MSU to be extremely lucky to have the Broad, one of only two Zaha buildings in the United States. As Lou Anna K. Simon, president of MSU said, "Through the Broad Art Museum, Zaha's creative spirit will be part of MSU forever."
I was fortunate enough to have witnessed that creative spirit in person while I worked on communications during the building and opening of the museum. I met Zaha a couple of times when she came to campus and once in New York. Amidst her crazy feather boas and noteworthy pleated collars, I knew I was standing next to brilliance. One of the coolest things I've been able to do was to be with her as she first set on eyes on the completed museum - her vision brought to life.

In an effort to understand how HIV evolves resistance to drugs, an MSU researcher has found that it may be possible to steer the evolution of HIV proteins, and eventually make HIV stop evolving. Chris Adami, professor of microbiology and molecular genetics at MSU, found that in patients who have never taken medications to treat HIV, the virus' proteins don't evolve. However, patients who were on anti-viral drugs saw their viral proteins evolve quickly, and in a very particular way.
