Ka-che Yip named Presidential Research Professor

Prof. Ka-che Yip is UMBC's Presidential Research Professor for 2010-2013!

Professor Yip has made significant contributions to the study of China as well as the more broadly conceived history of public health and disease. His work bridges historical scholarship in the East and West as well as making significant contributions to contemporary policy debates on public health issues. He is the author of the pathbreaking book, Health and National Reconstruction in Nationalist China: Development of Modern Health Services, 1928-1937, as well as Disease, Colonialism, and the State: Malaria in Modern East Asian History (Hong Kong University Press, 2009). Prof. Yip is also the author of thirty-five journal articles, book chapters, and encyclopedia entries. He is a sought after scholar as an external reviewer and has presented at numerous conferences both inside and outside the United States. Prof. Yip's membership in the International Network for the History of Malaria is further evidence of his stellar reputation among malariologists, social scientists, historians of medicine, and medical doctors throughout the world. Dr. Yip was also the UMBC Presidential Teaching Professor in 1994.

Sina Negabaum

Sina Negabaum was chosen to participate in the 2009 NSAISS Seminar. He writes, "It was truly phenomenal I felt so proud to represent UMBC. I was the only Maryland student represented out of a crop of 40 graduate students. Moreover I was the youngest student selected, amongst students who had come from Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard and Princeton." Congratulations!
