Copy Number Alterations on Human Chromosomes 21 Associated with Prostate Cancer

Fiona Halloran
The goal of my thesis project was incorporate my skills of computational biology, genomics, computer science and mathematics into something that would contribute to the knowledge of the scientific community and public in a useful way. In pairing with Dr. Philip Anderson, I was able to accomplish this goal. The research I pursued was focused on identifying potential regions of importance in prostate tumorigenesis. I analyzed publically available from The Cancer Genome Atlas using the...

The Migration of Sensory Neurons Following Chemical-Genetic B-Cell Ablation in Danio reno Larvae

Amanda Rocker
Peripheral nerves act as a vital bridge between the environment and the brain; environmental information is received by sensory neurons and transported, through electrical impulses, along axons to the central nervous system (CNS). The brain processes the information and sends a response back to target organs or muscles through motor axons. When any component of the peripheral nerve is damaged a condition called peripheral neuropathy can develop. This condition often presents in the form of...

Feminist Art: Steps Towards an Egalitarian Society

Elyse Krupinski
Art is a powerful form of media because of the way visual stimulus can create a visceral reaction. Art is used to inspire activism; protest art can be seen in multiple political and social movements. A movement in particular which showcases a great number of artists using visual media to promote social change and equality is the feminist movement of the 1970s. Feminist art from the 1970s is particularly notable and inspiring because the Women's...

The joy of pain and the pain of joy: In-group identification predicts schadenfreude and gluckschmerz following rival groups' fortunes

Charles Hoogland, D. Ryan Schurtz, Chelsea Cooper, David Combs, Edward Brown & Richard Smith
Four studies examined how in-group identification in the domain of sports is associated with schadenfreude in reaction to another group's suffering or gluckschmerz in reaction to another group's good fortune. Schadenfreude increased as a function of in-group identification when the outgroup was a rival team rather than a non-rival team in Study 1. Study 2 showed that those who experience schadenfreude at learning of an outgroup player's injury will also tend to feel gluckschmerz when...

A conceptual model of systems thinking leadership in community colleges

Anne Powel Davis, Eric B. Dent & Deborah M. Wharff
The pluralistic and often competing goals of myriad constituents, the changing demographics of students, the uncertainty of funding, and the growing demands for accountability from stakeholders have increased the complexity of systems which community college leaders must manage. Emerging from the recent literature on community colleges is a call for new models of leadership in the context of leading in an increasingly uncertain and complex environment. Systems thinking offers a means to help leaders respond...

Utilizing Ayurvedic literature for the identification of novel phytochemical inhibitors of botulinum neurotoxin A

Chinni Yalamanchili, Vamshi K. Manda, Amar G. Chittiboyina, Rebecca L. Guernieri, William A. Harrell, Robert P. Webb, Leonard A. Smith & Ikhlas A. Khan
Ethnopharmacological relevance Ayurveda, an ancient holistic system of health care practiced on the Indian subcontinent, utilizes a number of multi-plant formulations and is considered by many as a potential source for novel treatments, as well as the identification of new drugs. Our aim is to identify novel phytochemicals for the inhibition of bacterial exotoxin, botulinum neurotoxin A (BoNT/A) based on Ayurvedic literature. BoNT/A is released by Clostridium species, which when ingested, inhibits the release of...

A matrix-focused structure-activity and binding site flexibility study of quinolinol inhibitors of botulinum neurotoxin serotype A

William A. Harrell, Rebecca C. Vieira, Susan M. Ensel, Vicki Montgomery, Rebecca Guernieri, Vanessa S. Eccard, Yvette Campbell, Virginia Roxas-Duncan, John H. Cardellina, Robert P. Webb & Leonard A. Smith
Our initial discovery of 8-hydroxyquinoline inhibitors of BoNT/A and separation/testing of enantiomers of one of the more active leads indicated considerable flexibility in the binding site. We designed a limited study to investigate this flexibility and probe structure-activity relationships; utilizing the Betti reaction, a 36 compound matrix of quinolinol BoNT/A LC inhibitors was developed using three 8-hydroxyquinolines, three heteroaromatic amines, and four substituted benzaldehydes. This study has revealed some of the most effective quinolinol-based BoNT/A...

Long-Term Exposure to Ambient Air Pollution and Type 2 Diabetes in Adults

Robin C. Puett, Lesliam Quirós-Alcalá, Jessica A Montresor-López, Nedelina Tchangalova, Anindita Dutta, Devon Payne-Sturges & Jeff D. Yanosky
PURPOSE OF REVIEW We identified 24 publications from January 2010 until September 2018 in the peer-reviewed literature addressing the relationship of long-term air pollution exposures and type 2 diabetes-related morbidity and mortality among adults. We examine key methodological issues, synthesize findings, and address study strengths and limitations. We also discuss biological mechanisms, policy implications, and future research needed to address existing knowledge gaps. RECENT FINDINGS In general, the studies included in this review employed rigorous...

Socially-assigned race and health: A scoping review with global implications for population health equity

Kellee White, Jourdyn A. Lawrence, Nedelina Tchangalova, Shuo J. Huang & Jason L. Cummings
Self-identified race/ethnicity is largely used to identify, monitor, and examine racial/ethnic inequalities. A growing body of work underscores the need to consider multiple dimensions of race – the social construction of race as a function of appearance, societal interactions, institutional dynamics, stereotypes, and social norms. One such multidimensional measure is socially-assigned race, the perception of one’s race by others, that may serve as the basis for differential or unfair treatment and subsequently lead to deleterious...

Working Across Disciplines and Library Units to Develop a Suite of Systematic Review Services for Researchers

Nedelina Tchangalova, Eileen G. Harrington, Stephanie Ritchie, Sarah Over & Jodi Coalter
Since their inception in the health sciences field, systematic reviews have expanded into many other sub-ject disciplines. To address this growing need, subject librarians at the University of Maryland Libraries collaborated on a pilot program in three phases to introduce researchers to the process of conducting sys-tematic and scoping reviews. This article describes the design and development of a workshop series based on participant feedback. Assessment and evaluation techniques are shared to encourage further refinement...

“I run the world’s largest historical outreach project and it’s on a cesspool of a website.” Moderating a public scholarship site on Reddit: A case study of r/AskHistorians

Sarah Gilbert
Online communities provide important functions in their participants’ lives, from providing spaces to discuss topics of interest to supporting the development of close, personal relationships. Volunteer moderators play key roles in maintaining these spaces, such as creating and enforcing rules and modeling normative behavior. While these users play important governance roles in online spaces, less is known about how the work they do is impacted by platform design and culture. r/AskHistorians, a Reddit-based question and...

“A Lot of Flexibility within the Structure”: Academic Library Collection Development & E-Resources Management from an Athletics Perspective

Randall A. Lowe
There is an established history of academic libraries collaborating with their institutions’ athletics departments to provide learning and research support to student-athletes in order to achieve positive educational outcomes. It is rarer to find documented the effect that athletics has had on the professional life of an academic librarian. The author details how the skills acquired and lessoned learned being an athlete and collegiate coach directly influenced his approach to providing leadership in various collection...
