A Crash In The Night, Mary Ann Steiner, Sam Taylor, Judy Diamond Jun 2019

A Crash In The Night, Mary Ann Steiner, Sam Taylor, Judy Diamond

Zea E-Books

The illustrations in this book describe a wildlife encounter. Wild animals, like people, have challenges in life. They are adaptable and inventive, and they find new ways of solving problems to help them survive. As you turn the pages, describe what you see. How would you solve this wildlife challenge?

Mary Ann Steiner: Working on this story was exciting to me because I believe at any age, we can notice what is happening around us and make decisions to protect and enjoy nature! In this story, the kids see an exciting new character in the community. Once they figure out ...

Conservation Education: Using Birds To Connect Communities To Their Natural Environment, Kathryn A. Olson May 2019

Conservation Education: Using Birds To Connect Communities To Their Natural Environment, Kathryn A. Olson

Graduate Student Portfolios

The theme of my portfolio is conservation education, using birds as an example of how to connect people of all ages to their natural environment. Birds were chosen as an example because of a personal curiosity for the animal, and because they are an accessible and tangible element of nature for all people, urban and rural. The first component is a Curriculum Development Guide created for the Wings Over Water program of the Montana Natural History Center. It synthesizes scientific research on Ospreys, relates central themes of the literature to Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and provides inventive activity ideas ...

Weighted Pathway Genetic Load Analysis Of Hyperbilirubinemic Infants Indicates A Potential Genetic Component For Susceptibility To Bilirubin Neurotoxicity, Sean M. Riordan, Jean-Baptiste Lepichon, Steven Shapiro, John Cowden, Monica Villagullen, Laurence Thielemans, Dina Villanueva Garcia, Jesus Aguirre-Hernandez Apr 2019

Weighted Pathway Genetic Load Analysis Of Hyperbilirubinemic Infants Indicates A Potential Genetic Component For Susceptibility To Bilirubin Neurotoxicity, Sean M. Riordan, Jean-Baptiste Lepichon, Steven Shapiro, John Cowden, Monica Villagullen, Laurence Thielemans, Dina Villanueva Garcia, Jesus Aguirre-Hernandez

Posters

Severe kernicterus spectrum disorder (KSD) is described as motor and auditory deficits resulting from brain damage caused by hyperbilirubinemia. The severity of HB does not always predict the severity of injury. The lack of a strong monogenetic link to susceptibility suggests bilirubin-induced brain damage may be due to impaired bilirubin response pathways. This poster describes work to use a modified pathway genetic load (mPGL) score method to perform a targeted genetic analysis of whole exome data from patients with various degrees of neonatal HB, with an ultimate goal of developing a neonatal screen to susceptibiltiy to bilirubin neurotoxicity.

Genetic Basis For Elevated Rheumatic Heart Disease Susceptibility, Joshua J. Cassinat, Justina P. Tavana, Josue D. Gonzalez Murcia, Rachel C. Mcdonald, Ben Bearss, Joshua K. Parker, John S.K. Kauwe Apr 2019

Genetic Basis For Elevated Rheumatic Heart Disease Susceptibility, Joshua J. Cassinat, Justina P. Tavana, Josue D. Gonzalez Murcia, Rachel C. Mcdonald, Ben Bearss, Joshua K. Parker, John S.K. Kauwe

Library/Life Sciences Undergraduate Poster Competition 2019

Rheumatic heart disease is an inflammatory heart disease that affects millions of people around the world. Especially high rates of the disease can be found in Oceania, including the island nation of Samoa. Genetic studies of immune response genes have provided insight into a possible genetic link to increased susceptibility to rheumatic heart disease, including the genes that code for the toll-like receptor (TLR) protein family. One of the functions of TLR proteins is to recognize the presence of bacteria via identification of bacterial flagella.

Finding A Link Between Impetigo And Rheumatic Heart Disease, Lindsey Meservey, Thomas Knapp, Nathan Mella, Tyler Heaton, Tanner Heaton, Jonathon Hill, Paul Savage

Library/Life Sciences Undergraduate Poster Competition 2019

Rheumatic heart disease is a deadly condition pervasive in tropical third world countries like Samoa. In order to prevent rheumatic heart disease, we seek to understand the origins of rheumatic heart disease. Specifically, we want to understand if streptococcal infections of the skin, commonly called impetigo, could be responsible for triggering rheumatic heart disease.


You Are What You Eat At Any Age: Carbon And Nitrogen Analysis Of Mummies From An Ancient Egyptian Necropolis, Stephen Funk, R. Paul Evans Apr 2019

You Are What You Eat At Any Age: Carbon And Nitrogen Analysis Of Mummies From An Ancient Egyptian Necropolis, Stephen Funk, R. Paul Evans

Library/Life Sciences Undergraduate Poster Competition 2019

The BYU Egypt Project at Fag el-Gamus necropolis and adjacent Seila Pyramid has studied over 700 mummies excavated over the past 30 years. The necropolis includes an open area with densely located vertical burial shafts and a hill with horizontal burial shafts. The chronological and dietary history of the mummies was assessed using stable isotopy and 14C analysis of accessible biological samples.


Macrophage Infiltration And Activation In Old And Young Skeletal Muscle Following Lengthening Contractions, Jamie P. Kaluhiokalani, Jacob R. Sorensen, Robert D. Hyldahl Apr 2019

Macrophage Infiltration And Activation In Old And Young Skeletal Muscle Following Lengthening Contractions, Jamie P. Kaluhiokalani, Jacob R. Sorensen, Robert D. Hyldahl

Library/Life Sciences Undergraduate Poster Competition 2019

•Human skeletal muscle is capable of robust regeneration following damage. •Muscle repair following injury is dependent on the timely activity of pro-inflammatory (M1) and anti-inflammatory, pro-regenerative (M2) macrophages. Following acute muscle injury, healthy skeletal muscle experiences a rapid and vigorous inflammatory response. •Macrophages clear necrotic tissue and facilitate satellite cell behavior through the secretion of cytokines and growth factors. •It is known that aged muscle experiences poor regenerative potential following injury, but the cause is not well-understood.

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to investigate macrophage behavior in old and young people in the context of muscle damage.

The Investigator Research Magazine

We are excited to launch The Investigator, a new magazine which will be produced annually by the Office of Research at Kennesaw State University. You will find stories that span the spectrum and which impact the community through the research, service and creative activities conducted by KSU faculty, staff and students.

One feature describes how Jonathan McMurry and John Salerno partnered to create KSU’s first incubator company, New Echota Biotechnology. Another feature details the first year success of KSU Upward Bound programs, implemented in Polk and Paulding county high schools which help prepare students for college.
