UROP Poster Symposium

The Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) funds student-faculty collaboration across all disciplines. Each year, students are awarded fellowship that fund a one year research project.  Posters will be on display February 27th through March 1st.  An information session led by current UROP fellows on February 27th from 11 AM to 1 PM.  This is an opportunity to explore current student research and learn more about UROP.  Feel free to print event flyer and distribute in your area.

Current UROP Scholars describe their work:

Corinna Bellwood - Department of Biology  I am working in Dr. Monroe Duboise's Virology Research Laboratory. Through UROP, I was given the opportunity to work on my own research project, within the context of the Duboise Lab research, studying bacteriophages 1MC2-1 and 1N2-2. I am hoping to create a basic understanding of these organisms which may aid in further research in creating new vaccine platforms targeting diseases such as malaria.

Zach Hope - Department of Environmental Science I’ve been working with Dr. Karen Wilson and Dr. Theo Willis assisting in their research of aquatic ecosystems. The focus of the study is to hypothesis how fish navigate through, up, and around natural barriers at various flows and aims to better understand how river hydraulics act as an impedance to fish passage.

Layla Venturini - Department of Criminology  My research is with Professor Jim Messerschmidt. I am studying the Deepwater Horizon, BP oil well blowout that caused one of the largest environmental disasters. I am trying to specifically determine what (if any) crimes were committed prior to the explosion, who is responsible for those crimes and how can they be prevented in the future.

Jeffrey Thompson - Department of Computer For the last two years I have been doing research with Professor Clare Bates Congdon in bioinformatics. We have been extending a software system, known as GAMI (Genetic Algorithms for Motif Inference) that is used to investigate how genes are regulated. We hope that by incorporates biological structure with a comparative a genomics approach we will improve GAMI's ability to infer the regulation of genes.

Catherine Lobo - Department of Biology  I am working Dr. Monroe Duboise.  I conduct research in Microbiology, Genetics and Molecular Biology of bacterial viruses and their host bacteria that have been isolated from extreme alkaline/hypersaline soda-lake environments of the Kenyan Rift Valley. I hope to contribute to a vaccine project using extremophiles phages (organisms that live in high Ph, temperature or saline environments) as a platform for studying human diseases. 

Lauren Redmond – Department of Geosciences Lauren is working with Dr. Stephen Pollack (Geology) using Geobarometry and Geothermometry to determine formation conditions of rock formations in South Central Maine.

Peter Juarez - Department of Mechanical Engineering  Given this opportunity through UROP, my mentor Dr. Lin Lin and I have been collaborating on a project involving ultrasonic evaluation. Using an ultrasonic transducer, I have set out to design and test a device to allow for ultrasonic measurements to be performed on a pressurized desalination tank during operation. This device will hopefully allow Reverse Osmosis desalination tanks to run more efficiently and extend the life of the membrane filters that they use.

Bethany Araujo - Department of Biology My research, with Dr. David Champlin, uses the model organism Manduca sexta, the tobacco hornworm, to study the regulatory mechanism for the gland which produces the steroid hormone ecdysteroid, which plays a critical role in molting and metamorphosis.

Anthony Bullentini - Department of Chemistry Anthony, is working with Dr. Lucille Benedict using X-ray Florescence Spectroscopy to study Aqueous Metals

STONECOAST READING SERIES KICKOFF AND CELEBRATION OF BLACK HISTORY MONTH WITH PERFORMANCE BY LADY ZEN

University of Southern Maine’s Stonecoast MFA Program will kick off its Stonecoast Reading Series on February 27 in celebration of Black History Month and the MFA Program’s Tenth Anniversary. The event will feature the music and poetry of Stonecoast student and local performer, Lady Zen.

 “Black History Month highlights a tradition of creative expression,” says Stonecoast’s Associate Director, Robin Talbot. “One of Stonecoast’s fundamental values is to foster culturally diverse writers who have a clear understanding of the role writers play in social activism. We honor those writers who have contributed to these values.”

 One of these writers is Stonecoast student and social activist, Lady Zen. Born in Brazil and adopted by American parents, Lady Zen began a journey in creative expression as a vocal child prodigy. She won numerous awards, including a J. William Fulbright Scholarship for Opera Performance. In 2007, Lady Zen moved to Portland, ME and experienced a renewed sense of creativity. She shifted her focus to poetry and began working with Portland’s music scene. In 2010 she released a five-track EP titled "Poverty to Poetry.” Lady Zen was also named a Maine Poet of the Month in 2012 and was a semi-finalist on the 2012 season of the X-Factor.

 The Stonecoast Reading Series will occur on a bi-monthly basis beginning in February and will feature students, faculty and alumni from the program. Stonecoast’s Director Annie Finch said of the Reading Series, "Stonecoast MFA has long wanted to start a reading series in order to give something back to this inspiring creative community. Our tenth anniversary is the perfect time to launch, and Robin Talbot has developed a fabulous, must-see kickoff event."

 The Stonecoast Reading Series kickoff event will take place at 7:00pm, Wednesday, February 27 at Local Sprouts on 649 Congress St. in Portland.

 For announcements and a schedule of upcoming events in the Stonecoast Reading Series visit the Stonecoast MFA website, at https://cms.usm.maine.edu/stonecoastmfa.
