Even before the first case of Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome, or MERS, turned up in Indiana last week, a Purdue team was trying to thwart the disease. Biology professor Andy Mesecar has been studying MERS for about a year. That’s on top of a decade trying to kill a fatal disease which caused a worldwide panic a decade ago.

Purdue President Mitch Daniels took time Thursday to honor two men who helped evacuate residents from an off-campus apartment that was totaled by fire earlier this month.

Daniels gave the school’s “One Brick Higher” award to sophomore ROTC cadet Greg Cohen and to 28-year employee Kevin Thedans.

Both helped rescue people from the blaze, which took the life of 22-year-old Cody Day.

Daniels says he talked with both men in the days leading up to the ceremony, and neither sought praise.

The next evolution of science is not happening in a lab, but in a basement in a rural Florida county. Thanks to online crowdsourcing, thousands of non-scientists can visit a site called Notes From Nature and lend a hand to university researchers cataloging their collections, from bark to bugs.
