Biology and Environmental Science News

The Biological Sciences department would like to congratulate the 34 Biology, Biotechnology, and Medical Laboratory Science graduates. Best wishes on your future endeavors!

Congratulations to Kari Norquist (left), Kelly Spencer (middle), and Erin Wolfe (right) for being the department’s first Biotechnology/Forensic Science (BT/FSCI) BS/MS graduates! The BT/FSCI BS/MS option became available during the fall of 2010. Students interested in this program apply during their junior year and are able to start taking graduate classes during their senior year in order to earn their master’s degree in as little as one year after obtaining a bachelor’s degree. These students completed and graduated from the undergraduate biotechnology program this past May and are continuing their graduate studies in forensic science this upcoming fall.

The School of the Sciences’ own Sean Reynolds was selected to be the SU Pin Award winner during the 2014 Commencement Exercises. The SU Pin Award is “the most comprehensive honor the university confers on one graduating senior whose total personal performance is meritorious, including academic achievement, independence, integrity of thought and action, reliability, respect for others, and involvement in university or community affairs.” Congratulations Sean!

Congratulations to Christopher Snyder (BS Biology ’14) for having his capstone research published in the Medical Science Monitor Basic Research journal! His article, titled "The effects of morphine on Parkinson's-related genes PINK1 and PARK2", can be found using this link: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4026148/. Chris did his capstone research in the laboratory of Dr. George B. Stefano at the Neuroscience Research Institute at SUNY Old Westbury in Old Westbury, New York and is currently working there full-time.

Congratulations to Assistant Professor of Biology Kimberly Pause Tucker on the publication of her research into the identification of bacterial viruses in the environment. The research, entitled “Diversity of environmental single-stranded DNA phages revealed by PCR amplification of the partial major capsid protein,” was done in collaboration with scientists in Florida and France. It sheds light on the presence of and diversity of bacterial viruses called phages in the environment. Dr. Pause Tucker is also the Director of the Center for Environmental Sustainability here at Stevenson University.
