IT WAS TUESDAY MORNING. Asad Tarsin, president of the Muslim Students' Asso-
ciation, was sleeping. University President Lee Bollinger was in New York City,
where he would accept the job as president of Columbia University in about a
month. Students, recovering from the rigors of Welcome Week, were adjusting
to the rigors of classes. Those unfortunate enough to have 8:30 courses were
showering. The Michigan Daily hit newsstands early, proclaiming that caller ID
was finally coming to the dorms. LSA freshman Amanda Czop was talking with
her roommate, who was instant-messaging a friend. IT WAS SEPT. 11, 2001.

8 A.M.
B. Joseph White sat
down in his faculty office
overlooking the Law Quad
to prepare a lesson plan. He
had been dean of the Busi-
ness School for 11 years but
had stepped down a few
months earlier to teach.
He'd returned six days ear-
lier from a trip to New York
City, where he'd attended a
board meeting with sev-
eral alumni who worked on
the 93rd floor of the north
tower of the World Trade

At about 8:50 a.m., his
phone rang. It was his

9 A.M.
E. Royster Harper,
vice president for student
affairs, was in a routine
staff meeting with her top
advisors and she was tired.
She excused herself to get
a cup of coffee. Walking
down the hall, she passed

a large conference room
and noticed the television
was on. She paused briefly,
watching a tiny speck dis-
appearing into the side of
what looked like the World
Trade Center with a poof.
That's odd, she thought
to herself as she returned
to her staff meeting.
When she got back to
her office, Dean of Stu-
dents Frank Cianciolo
said, "Royster, we're under

Last week. 1 told
you today's Daily
would introduce our
comprehensive redesign.
It turns out we're going
to hold off on that for a
short while. I won't waste
valuable newsprint going
over the details - they
involve fonts and money.
Forgive us our delays, and
we will forgive the bean-
counters who delay us.
Now, the good news:
we are launching a new
website today. We hope
you'll like the cleaner
design, easier navigation
and new RSS feeds. We've
also added two new blogs.
The Circuit will include
commentary on on-campus
and off-campus technology,
and The choice will provide
a forum for students,
faculty, administrators
and other readers to
discuss ethical issues.

Unlike the Daily's other
blogs, The Choice will be
written mostly by non-Daily'
staffers. Members of the
steering committee for
University President Mary
Sue Coleman's initiative on
Ethics in Public Life, along
with other contributors
of various ethical
perspectives, will provide
the bulk of the discussion.
E-mail Managing Online
Editor Phil Dokas at
com with comments-
and suggestions.
And watch for our print
redesign, which should
emerge in the very near
future. (No promises as
to when this time.)

'U' profs research
nano-Trojan Horses
to cure diseases
By Arikia Millikan
Daily Staff Reporter
University scientists are
doing big things in the sci-
ence of the small, and it could
change how and how long you
will live.
The University hosted the
first Nanotechnology Sym-
posium at the Biomedical
Science Research Building
Nanoparticles are only
a few billionths of a meter
wide, but their applications
to the medical field are wide-

University Prof. Mark
Banaszak Holl, a founding
member of the Michigan
Nanotechnology Institute
for Medicine and Biologi-
cal Sciences, recognizes the
monumental potential in
nanotechnology, the process
of taking nanoparticles and
assembling them into larger
Banaszak Holl is investi-
gating how the similarities
between a dendrimer - type
of synthetic nanoparticle -
and naturally occurring bio-
logical particles could benefit
the study of medicine.
A dendrimer is some-
what like a cellular Trojan
