School of Science Multi-Disciplinary Colloquium – Tuesday, March 18th

School of Science Multi-Disciplinary Colloquium – Tuesday, March 18th

The macromolecular structure of biochemical compounds often plays a large role in their cellular function. Unique cycles and helices can dictate the ability of a hormone, peptide or whole protein to perform its job inside and outside of the cell. When the relationships between such compounds are implicated in the disease state, they can be traced to the interactions between the varying shapes of the compounds involved. We have been working on synthesizing peptide-based compounds that imitate the structural features of naturally found peptides, butContinue Reading

Computer Science Students Earn Top Rankings in Research Competition

Computer Science Students Earn Top Rankings in Research Competition

Our Computer Science mentored research capstone experience is an engaging way to develop skills outside of the classroom. Guided by a faculty member, students conduct research and development in areas beyond the traditional curriculum. Capstone students gain presentation skills by participating in either our Celebration of Computing event, held during the fall semester, or by presenting a poster during the college-wide spring event, Celebration of Student Achievement. Some students may be encouraged to present theirContinue Reading

Seismology in Action

Seismology in Action

As a seismologist, Associate Professor of Physics Maggie Benoit looks at squiggles. “Whenever there is a big signal from anything, I usually go to the seismic data and look it up so I can see it,” she said. A big signal came earlier this week from a gas explosion at a nearby townhouse community in Ewing on March 4 and Benoit and a colleague quickly got to work dissecting the data. “Seismologists are able to tell, by looking at the Continue Reading
