Student Spotlight! Melissa Coyle is starting her sophomore year with a major in Biological Sciences and a minor in the Honors Program. She keeps busy conducting research at Chapman’s Pharmacy School where she studies protein signal transduction in #breastcancer cells. She’s excited to begin her own project which involves identifying which peptide effectively brings in siRNA in certain breast cancer cells. Outside of research, Melissa is a member of the Provost Student Advisory Board, TriBeta, AMSA, WIST and the World Affairs Council of Orange County. Melissa also has a passion for figure skating and is training for the fourth out of eight USFS moves in the field tests as a United States Figure Skater. This past summer Melissa spent her time taking Organic Chemistry I & II at Columbia University. Can’t wait to see what’s next, Melissa!

Recent Biological Sciences graduate Alex Himstead nailed his Research in 60 Seconds regarding his work studying the chemical and behavioral defenses associated with sea hares. To compensate for their loss of a protective shell, sea hares and other soft-bodied gastropods have learned to avoid daytime high tides and nocturnal predators, allowing them to hide rather than defend.

Recent #Biochemistry and #MolecularBiology graduate Zachary Ellis just barely made it under 60 seconds when describing his research regarding temperature regulation of methanogenic activity in Peatlands. Zachary's preliminary results confirmed that temperature plays a large role in peatland's methanogenic activity as suggested by a greater production of CH4 and the presence of a mCRA gene.

Recent Environmental Science and Policy (#ESP) graduate Allison Scavo took part in our Research in 60 Seconds series to explain her research analyzing whether fish on both the east and west coasts of the United States respond differently to climate change! Despite the poor predictive power provided by sea surface temperature, salinity, and chlorophyll, she concluded that fish populations do seem to have unique responses to #climatechange.

#TBT to 2014 when chemistry and physics alumnus Dara Hok '16 spent his summer at #ChapmanU researching the application of gravitational potential onto the Schrodinger equation. “The ten-week research-intensive program is like a small snippet of what graduate life entails... It gives you a good sense of [whether or not] this is the type of career you’d like to pursue because it provides an accurate picture of graduate life and research.” Soon Dara will be leaving to Stanford University where he'll begin doctoral studies.

"On a recent afternoon, biology majors AJ Silvia ’18 and Matt Ibrahim ’18 hunkered down to study in the Hope room, surrounded by the artwork of African-American artist Michael Massenburg. They enjoyed it for its own sake – 'I just love looking at the artwork,' Ibrahim said. But they were also moved by its significance. 'I’ve walked into all the rooms and looked at the photos and images,' Silvia said. 'It’s beautiful artwork that introduces you to new artists and pulls you in. And it makes you think.'"

Thousands of super-strong threads – each more than 100 times thinner than a human hair – weave throughout the goo. If those strands can be replicated and mass-produced, they might provide an alternative to petroleum-based fibers like nylon and Kevlar."
