‘Art in Silico’ Juried Art Show Reception

Art in Silico” welcomes you to enjoy refreshments, art and live music at our Juried Art Show Reception at the Historic Orpheum Theater in Hancock today (April 13) from 5-7 p.m. A $15 donation is requested, and funds will be split between Copper Country Community Arts Center and MTU student scholarships.

Awards will be presented to artists and we will have interactive displays. Friends, family and the greater community are all welcome and encouraged to attend!

The inaugural “Art in Silico” is a computational art exhibition and event series that examines the expressive world of creative computation and the confluence of technology and art, connecting circuit board to canvas. As technology pervades our existence, forming new universes — metaverses — in which we can live, act and perceive, the spaces between the conventional science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines and the creative arts have shrunk to the infinitesimal. “Art in Silico” celebrates the continuum of arts and STEM, seeking to hack your mind and STEAM your brain to experience a world in which data are compelling, evocative, provocative, ugly, beautiful and appealing.

UP Regional Blood Drive This Friday!

The Society of Medical Laboratory Scientists is hosting a blood drive at Michigan Tech tomorrow (April 14) from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the DHH ballroom. All blood donated stays in the Upper Peninsula! Donate and save up to three lives!

Sign up to donate. Walk-ins are also welcome.

‘She Said’ Movie Event

In recognition of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, SAVE (Sexual Assault and Violence Education), the MTU Film Board and Title IX will show the award-winning movie “She Said” on Sunday (April 16) at 6 p.m. in Fisher 135.

The movie is based on actual events in which two journalists work to shake up the system and expose decades of silence surrounding sexual assault and harassment in Hollywood. We invite students, faculty and staff to join us for this showing and to support our awareness and prevention efforts on Michigan Tech’s campus. Admission to the movie is free, and all attendees will get a drink and snack of their choice at no cost.

We believe that by coming together and starting the conversation about sexual violence, we can educate, raise awareness and create a culture of prevention, ultimately leading to a safer and more supportive campus community. Dial Help and University staff members will be available at the event with on-campus, local and national resources.

Sixth Annual Keweenaw Native Plant Symposium

Award-winning author Nancy Lawson will deliver the keynote address April 22 at the Sixth Annual Keweenaw Native Plant Symposium, co-sponsored by the Sustainability Demonstration House.

The symposium is free and runs from 9 a.m. to noon on Zoom. To register, visit the Sixth Annual Keweenaw Native Plant Symposium page.

In addition to Lawson, two Michigan-based experts will be featured, including Stephanie Graef, who will discuss shoreline protection, and Duke Elsner, who will speak on the use of native plants to attract beneficial bugs to the garden.

Nancy Lawson is the author of "The Humane Gardener" and "Wildscape." She will present "A World of Discovery: How Science and Heart Can Make You a More Ecological Gardener." She will discuss how plants and animals perceive the world around them, the unintended consequences of noise, light and odor pollution, and how we can mitigate these disruptions and create sensory refuges in an increasingly noisy world.

Erwin "Duke" Elsner is a Michigan State University Extension educator emeritus. He will speak on "Plant Selection to Attract and Support Predator and Parasitoid Insects." The larvae of many species of predatory insects, including wasps, eat many garden pests. However, once these immature wasps become adults, they change their diet and rely instead on flower nectar and pollen. Elsner will provide examples of wasps' favorite flowers and show how planting them can control many pests in our vegetable gardens.

Stephanie Graef, owner of Eagle Shoreline Protection in Chassell, will present "Living Shoreline: Benefits to the Ecosystem." Graef installs living shorelines: protected, stabilized coastal edges made of natural materials such as plants, sand or rock. Unlike a seawall or other hard structure, which impedes the growth of plants and animals, living shorelines provide wildlife habitat, as well as natural resilience to communities near the waterfront.

MTU Students Receive NSF Graduate Research Fellowships

Jenna Brewer, a Michigan Tech graduate student, and Megan Guyer, a Tech undergraduate student, have been awarded National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowships. Another graduate student who earned their bachelor’s degree and received NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) writing support at Tech, Kaylee Meyers, was also awarded. Two additional Tech graduate students, Hunter Roose and Reed Arneson, received honorable mentions.

The oldest STEM-related fellowship program in the United States, the NSF GRFP is a prestigious award that recognizes exceptional graduate students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines early in their career and supports them through graduate education. NSF GRFP fellows are an exceptional group; 42 fellows have become Nobel Laureates and about 450 fellows are members of the National Academy of Sciences.

The fellowship provides three years of financial support, including a $37,000 stipend for each fellow and a $12,000 cost-of-education allowance for the fellow’s institution. Besides financial support for fellows, the GRFP provides opportunities for research in national laboratories and international research.

The Graduate School is proud of these students for their outstanding scholarship. These awards highlight the quality of students at Michigan Tech, the innovative work they have accomplished, the potential for leadership and impact in science and engineering that the country recognizes in these students, and the incredible role that faculty play in students’ academic success.

MS Defense: Christina Boody, BioSci

M.S. in Biological Sciences candidate Christina Boody will present a master's defense tomorrow (April 14) from 3-4 p.m. in Dow 708. Virtual attendance is also invited via Zoom.

Boody's defense is titled “Establishing Degradation of the C. elegans DREAM Complex in the Germline.”

From the abstract:
The highly conserved Dp, Rb, E2F, and MuvB (DREAM) complex is responsible for the transcriptional repression of cell cycle genes. The DREAM complex has been extensively studied in somatic (non-reproductive) cells, but there is a gap in knowledge regarding how the DREAM complex may function in germ (reproductive) cells. To demonstrate loss-of-function of DREAM in the germline, we used the auxin inducible degron (AID) system to establish degradation of LIN-54, a subunit of DREAM’s MuvB subcomplex, and the Retinoblastoma-like pocket protein LIN-35 in C. elegans. Using transgenic lines that express the Arabidopsis thaliana TIR1 E3 ubiquitin ligase ubiquitously through all C. elegans tissues or specifically only in somatic tissue, we evaluated the effects following treatment of auxin that triggers TIR1-mediated rapid degradation of degron-tagged LIN-54 or degron-tagged LIN-35. In our LIN54 evaluation, brood size counting experiments showed a difference in fertility between worms exposed to auxin and the control group in both TIR1 transgenic lines, suggesting either that LIN-54’s somatic activity is important for fertility or the somatic-expressed TIR1 transgene had some activity in the germline. Subsequent fluorescence microscopy revealed decreased expression of LIN-54 or LIN-35 in the germline in each TIR1-expressing transgenic worm background when exposed to auxin, as compared to the control group, indicating that the somatically-expressed TIR1 transgene does have activity in the germline. These results suggest that DREAM disruption in the germline negatively affects germ cell production and fertility. Our results underscore that new TIR1-expressing transgenic lines will have to be generated to confirm that DREAM’s somatic activity does not contribute to fertility in some form.

MS Defense: Kimia Hamidzadeh, ChE

M.S. in Chemical Engineering candidate Kimia Hamidzadeh will present their M.S. defense tomorrow (April 14) at 10 a.m. in person in Chem Sci 201 and virtually via Zoom.

BioSci Seminar with Margret Shirinian

Margret Shirinian, assistant professor, American University of Beirut, Lebanon, will present virtually as part of the Department of Biological Sciences (BioSci) Seminar Series from 3-4 p.m. today (April 13).

Join the presentation via Zoom (use passcode 046347).

Shirinian's presentation is titled "A tale of histone and DNA modifications in brain tumors using the Drosophila melanogaster model."

From the abstract:
Central Nervous System (CNS) tumors are the second most common cancers affecting children and adolescents after leukemia. Approximately half of these CNS tumors are childhood gliomas. Our understanding of high-grade gliomas (HGG) in children was revolutionized by the groundbreaking discovery of somatic recurrent driver mutations in Histone H3.3. Although the repertoire of cancers harboring these “oncohistones” expanded significantly the underlying molecular mechanisms affected by these Histone H3.3 mutants is still under intensive investigation. In our lab we work on unraveling the molecular mechanism through which histone and DNA modifications impact CNS development. We use Drosophila melanogaster as a model system to understand some facets of epigenetic regulation in normal development and cancer.
