The Yin of Tax Legislation: U.Va. Law Professor Returns From Influential Policy Position

AMERICA MAY BE the land of the free, but not when it comes to taxes. With taxes mandated in nearly every facet of our society — income, transportation, energy, healthcare, environment, housing, retirement policy and more — there are few issues facing Congress that do not involve taxes in some way. Until five months ago, it was George Yin (left), a professor in the University of Virginia’s School of Law, who as head of Congress’ Joint Committee on Taxation led collaborative efforts with members of Congress and their staffs on every aspect of the tax legislative process. Full story.

Cities Have Made Gains on Suburbs Since the 200 Census, U.Va. Study Shows

The two researchers found that the increases in per capita income and median owner-occupied housing values in 22 cities in large metropolitan areas relative to their suburbs shows improvement on their performance in the 1990s. Per capita income increased on average from 86 percent to 89 percent of the cities’ metropolitan areas’ income from 2000 to 2004. Full story.

U.Va. Researchers Part of Collaborative Effort to Develop Drug Delivery That’s Right on Target

Until now, there hasn’t been much hope for patients diagnosed with Glioblastoma multiforme, a particularly malignant form of brain cancer. It grows rapidly and is essentially always fatal. Even after surgery, a patient’s median survival time is approximately one year. The disease also has a track record of being resistant to the best efforts of medical science, therefore resulting in relatively few significant advances in treatment over the last 25 years. University of Virginia engineering professors George T. Gillies (left) and Joseph A. C. Humphrey (right) are working to put an end to this deadlock with a new method of drug delivery. Full story.
