Good news! IT has begun the process to restore the integrated address books in both Exchange and CardMail. Over the next week you will begin to see your Exchange and CardMail address books re-populate with names from both email systems. When complete the address books will contain the names of all users who have an active university email account, including faculty, staff, students and retirees. Notification will be sent when the process has completed.
Two noticeable changes from the previous integrated address books:
- For some individuals you will see two entries in the address books. This indicates that person has both an Exchange and CardMail account. When using the address book you should take care to select the appropriate entry.
- Lync sessions created between CardMail and Exchange accounts will now require use of the complete email address, for example, firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. You will no longer be able to select entries from the address books.
We thank you for your patience while we addressed the various problems encountered with your email service.
Questions: Contact the HelpDesk at 852-7997 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
University of Louisville law and medicine professor Mark A. Rothstein has received a two- year $612,000 grant from the National Institutes of Health to foster international collaboration on genetic research while maintaining human rights and privacy.
Rothstein is an expert on the legal and ethical issues raised by genetic research—including compiling large collections of biological specimens.
“International collaboration in genetic research is extremely valuable in advancing understanding and developing new therapies,” Rothstein said. “We need to make sure that essential privacy laws don't unnecessarily interfere with research."
Rothstein has a joint appointment at the Louis D. Brandeis School of Law and the School of Medicine. He holds the Herbert F. Boehl Chair of Law and Medicine and is the founding director of the university’s Institute for Bioethics, Health Policy and Law. He frequently writes and comments on issues of bioethics, genetics and health privacy.
Rothstein will conduct the research with co-investigator Bartha Maria Knoppers, a medicine professor and director of the Centre of Genomics and Policy at McGill University, Montreal, Canada. Legal experts from 26 countries will take part in the research effort.
Their findings and recommendations will take aim at removing legal impediments to international collaboration on health research and be published in the Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics in 2016.

Longtime law professor Edwin Render, who died last January, was honored Aug. 26 in a ceremony attended by faculty, staff and Render’s family and friends.
A large portrait of Render was unveiled before the group. The portrait will hang in the Cox Lounge at the school.
Render was a fixture in the law school for more than 45 years. He taught property, evidence and labor law and was a founding member of the Carl A. Warns Jr. Labor and Employment Law Institute, which has been renamed the Warns-Render Labor and Employment Law Institute in his honor.
“He was such a fine man and impacted the careers of so many people,” said Dean Susan Duncan. “It seems so odd to start the school year without Ed.”
A smaller version of the portrait was given to Render’s family.
