MTU, MSU Collaborate and Build Foundations in Inaugural Research Symposium

On March 13, professors and research leaders from Michigan Technological University and the College of Human Medicine at Michigan State University participated and presented at a collaborative research symposium titled “Engineering the Future of Human Health.” This inaugural event, hosted by MSU, was held at the Secchia Center in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

The symposium was spearheaded by Michigan Tech Vice President for Global Campus and Continuing Education David Lawrence and planned by a joint MTU and MSU team. Melissa Kacos, events manager at MSU, used her superior organizational skills to make the symposium a success.

Twelve researchers from MTU and 12 from MSU delivered presentations during the event's six sessions. The event also featured an 18-poster display from faculty, researchers and M.D. students.

MTU was represented by:

Representing MSU were Brian Johnson and Nureddin Shammakhi (Tissue); Erin Purcell and Jinxing Li (Biosensors); Taeho Kim and Bryan Smith (Biomedical); Aitor Aguirre and Tomasz Timek (Cardiovascular); Rebecca Knickmeyer and Shreesh Sammi (Neurological and Aging); and Anna Moore and Kurt Zinn (Cancer).

The purpose of this collaborative event was investigating areas of shared goals, mutual interests and possible research collaboration in crucial areas of human health. Or as Christopher Contag of MSU affirmed, the symposium "will help integrate the research aims of the two universities for a collective endeavor to develop the tools, technologies and knowledge that will impact human health across the state.”

Sean Kirkpatrick of MTU agreed, noting that the event marked “a good first step towards working across university boundaries and leveraging our unique individual strengths to improve the health of Michiganders.”

The next step will be developing these research aims and shared human health initiatives in a second collaborative symposium hosted by MTU on Oct. 27, which is timed to go along with the Upper Peninsula Medical Conference. In this symposium, researchers will elaborate on the theme of engineering the future of human health, but in these key areas: Big Data, Data Analytics, Artificial Intelligence, Image Processing, Epidemiology, Human Factors and Neural Engineering.

Lawrence, Kirkpatrick, Cooke and Caryn Heldt (ChE/HRI) are MTU’s co-sponsors of this second symposium. Co-sponsors for MSU are Adam Alessio, Departments of Computational Mathematics, Science, and Engineering; Biomedical Engineering; and Radiology; and Bin Chen, Department of Pediatrics and Human Development.

As the second symposium approaches, the Global Campus team will be sharing more details. Stay tuned for ways to attend or participate in this innovative event.

PhD Defense: John Velat, HU

Ph.D. in Rhetoric, Theory, and Culture candidate John Velat will present their doctoral defense at 10 a.m. April 3. The defense will be held in Walker 318. Virtual attendance is also invited via Zoom.

Velat's defense is titled “The Rhetorical Art of Risk Assessment: Lessons from Risk Management in Rural and Tribal Communities.”

From the abstract:
Risk assessment, mitigation, and communication rely on data from multiple sources to form a complete understanding of hazards and how to manage them. Experts can use these data to make informed decisions about the nature and extent of risks and inform the public to protect health, the environment, and economic welfare. However, in an effort to objectively make decisions, technical experts and policymakers increasingly rely on quantitative data as the most important determinator of risk, which can alienate the public, limit risk understanding, and delay or miss obvious signals of impending catastrophe. I examine several cases based on my experiences practicing and researching traffic safety, public safety, and technical and professional communication (TPC). The cases include a look at the impact of limited quantitative data in addressing motor vehicle traffic injuries and death in American Indian and rural communities; the challenge of collecting accurate data by first responders and firefighters to better understand and respond to health and physical hazards; and a recent history of failures to prevent airline and aerospace disasters due to an overemphasis on quantifiable data and devaluation of expert knowledge. The results of this study call attention to the weaknesses resulting from a quantitative imperative in risk management and a proposal for renewed focus on risk assessment using rhetorical practices and qualitative data readily available from expert and non-expert perspectives.

BioSci Seminar with John McCall

John McCall will present as part of the Department of Biological Sciences (BioSci) Seminar Series/Defenses from 3-4 p.m. tomorrow (March 23). The seminar will be held in the Great Lakes Research Center, GLRC 202.

McCall is a master's student in biological sciences at Michigan Technological University. He will present "Epi- and population genomic assessments of stamp sand toxicity to salmonids and consequences for Lake Superior fisheries."

From the abstract:
The Keweenaw Peninsula in Michigan historically had significant native copper deposits which made the region the second largest global producer of copper between 1850 and 1930 (Murdoch 1943). Two mines deposited over 22 million metrics tonnes/50 billion lbs of mine tailing wastes (“stamp sands”) along the shore of Lake Superior’s Big Traverse Bay (Pepin 2017). Erosion of this pile has resulted in stamp sands being distributed over 35% of Buffalo Reef, a natural spawning reef for lake trout (Salvelinus namaycush) and whitefish (Coregonus clupeaformis) that is estimated to produce almost 1/3 of the regional catch of these species in Lake Superior. We used reduced representation bisulfite sequencing and genotyped fish from Buffalo Reef and Lake Superior to quantify adverse developmental or toxic effects associated with stamp sand dispersal onto spawning habitat and potential consequences for the fishery. Bisulfite sequencing identified over 22k loci in lake trout that were screened for unusual DNA methylation at cytosine and guanine dinucleotides, which is a conserved epigenetic marker in vertebrates shown to modulate gene expression due to environmental stress. Buffalo Reef lake trout were hypomethylated and had an aberrant methylation pattern compared to a Lake Huron outgroup, suggesting acute or chronic toxicity from legacy stamp sand exposure. Genotype data showed Buffalo Reef lake trout had more heterozygosity than allopatric fish in Lake Superior and a gradient of genetic differentiation across a large spatial scale. Individual fish were also genetically admixed across sites suggesting high gene flow between populations and potential loss of genetic diversity or demographic consequences for fishes due to continuing stamp sand inundation at Buffalo Reef.

ME-EM Graduate Seminar Speaker: Sandip Mazumder

The next Department of Mechanical Engineering-Engineering Mechanics (ME-EM) Graduate Seminar speaker will present at 4 p.m. tomorrow (March 23) in MEEM 112.

Chemistry Seminar with Louisa Hope-Weeks

Louisa Hope-Weeks from Texas Tech University will be presenting her seminar "Porous materials: From aerogels to energetic materials" for the next seminar in the Chemistry Seminar Series.

The presentation will be Friday (March 24) at 3 p.m. in Chem Sci 101.

From the abstract:
Currently, there are many important applications for low-density, porous materials which exhibit tunable morphologies and composition. The applications for these materials are diverse and include catalysis, sensing, energy storage, filtration, and water purification. To this end, we have investigated a relatively simple process to form monolithic organic and inorganic simple, composite, and complex oxides in various applications. Utilizing this simple technique, sol-gel materials were prepared from cheap readily available starting materials. The gels were dried either by supercritical solvent extraction or by ambient temperature drying. The resulting porous monolithic materials are composed of an interconnecting network of particles with nanoscale dimensions. The materials were characterized via SEM, TEM, XRD, and nitrogen adsorption-desorption isotherms. The analysis shows that the morphology and crystalline nature of the sol-gel materials are dependent on the initial metal salt, the solvent system, and concentration. Calcinating the dried gel often resulted in the crystallization of single or mixed-phase metal oxide; analysis indicates that the calcined materials were nanocrystalline. The average crystallite sizes of these materials were determined from XRD line broadening and were in good agreement with the SEM and TEM results.

Huskies Mourn Passing of Geof Kotila

Michigan Tech men's basketball Hall of Famer Geof Kotila passed away Monday (March 20) in his sleep at the age of 64. The news was reported by the Danish professional basketball league, Basketliga.

Kotila was a four-year starter for the Michigan Tech men's basketball team. He helped the Huskies to a 63-37 record and the school's first-ever Northern Intercollegiate Conference title in 1979-80.

He was named MTU's outstanding newcomer in 1978-79, earned the club's most improved player award in 1980-81, and was team MVP in 1982-83. He was also recognized with the Raymond L. Smith Award as the University's most outstanding male student-athlete.

Kotila played 102 career games at Tech and ranked third in all-time career points (1,394) when his collegiate career ended. After his playing days, he served as assistant men's basketball coach (1985-87), then head men's basketball coach (1987-94). He amassed 82 wins over his seven-year tenure at the helm. He also served as head men's cross country coach (1985-86).

Andrew Fiss (HU) is the author of a chapter published in the new book “Algorithmic Modernity: Mechanizing Thought and Action, 1500-2000” from Oxford University Press.

The chapter is titled “‘For Computing Is Our Duty': Algorithmic Workers, Servants, and Women at the Harvard Observatory."

Fiss analyzes the work of human computers at the Harvard Observatory in 1879 and 1929, investigating shifting ideas of gender, social class and work through their authorship and production of a site-based opera called “Observatory Pinafore,” which parodied Gilbert and Sullivan’s “H.M.S. Pinafore.” In the volume, the chapter connects the historical work of human computers with the development of computing machines.

Workshop: 'Heritage and local development in postindustrial contexts'

The Department of Social Sciences is hosting Professors Lucie Morisset and Luc Noppen, Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM), who will hold a workshop today (March 22) from noon to 1 p.m. in AOB 201 and virtually via Zoom.

The workshop is titled "Heritage and local development in postindustrial contexts: overview of the research at the Canada Research Chair in Urban Heritage."

Founded in 2001 at the UQAM School of Management, the Canada Research Chair in Urban Heritage supports work on heritage from a strategic community development perspective. It focuses on knowledge, but also on the symbolic and functional requalification of built heritage, particularly in the context of deindustrialization, based on the critical principle that heritage has the capacity to transform the physical and social environment in which it is deployed.

Morisset and Noppen will present some of the research they are conducting in this spirit. They will briefly address the issue of disused churches in urban areas, as well as the future of former company towns and historic industrial complexes. They will conclude with the presentation of a deep mapping project designed to federate such research and, in the long term, to encourage community participation and enhance social knowledge.

Refreshments will be served in the Social Sciences Commons in AOB 209 after the workshop.

About the Speakers
Lucie K. Morisset has been working for the last three decades on the knowledge and preservation of the built landscape. She is a professor in the Urban and Tourism Studies Department at UQAM and chairholder of the Canada Research Chair in Urban Heritage. A historian of architecture and urban planning, Morisset is distinguished by her historical, theoretical and practical approach, linking scientific expertise with the experience of residents and owners of heritage buildings. Planned communities and the social justice of heritage feature prominently in her work. President of the Association of Critical Heritage Studies from 2017 to 2020, she currently sits on the boards of the International Committee for the Conservation of Industrial Heritage, the Quebec Association for the Industrial Heritage, and the International Council on Monuments and Sites Canada. A Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada since 2011, Morisset received in 2022 the Gérard-Morisset award, the highest distinction awarded by the Quebec government in the field of heritage.

Luc Noppen is a full professor in the Department of Urban and Tourism Studies at the UQAM School of Management Sciences. After a career at Laval University, he was the first holder of the Canada Research Chair in Urban Heritage at UQAM in 2001. An architectural historian by training, Noppen has worked extensively on the characterization and protection of built heritage. He has published some 20 books and several hundred articles and research reports, and has received numerous awards and distinctions, including the Killam Fellowship from the Canada Council for the Arts and the Prix du Québec Gérard-Morisset. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada in 1994.
