Jonathan Maletic, Ph.D., professor in the Department of Computer Science in the College of Arts and Sciences at Kent State University, has received a three-year, $290,610 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to help support basic research on how programmers write and develop large-scale software systems.

His project “An Infrastructure That Combines Eye Tracking Into Integrated Development Environments to Study Software Development and Program Comprehension,” or more simply, iTrace, will help grow the applications of eye-tracking software.

Pet or person, caregiver’s burden is similar, Kent State researcher finds

The mental and physical stress on individuals caring for elderly loved ones with chronic and terminal disease is well-documented and known as caregiver burden. It is linked to depression, anxiety and poor quality of life. There are ways to prevent and treat it. But what about caregivers of pets with chronic and terminal diseases? Do they carry the same level of stress and burden?

Famed science fiction writer and biochemistry professor Isaac Asimov once said, “The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the only one that heralds new discoveries, is not ‘Eureka!’ but rather, ‘Hmm ... that’s funny.’”

Members of Kent State University’s scientific community gathered to celebrate the grand opening of its new, state-of-the-art Integrated Sciences Building on Sept. 15, and they are hoping to hear many more “Hmm … that’s funny” comments coming from their labs, classrooms and hallways for decades to come.
