  • Funding will provide support to Dr. Aguanno to advance her continuing project in an undergraduate biology research training program, The role of cyclin dependant kinase 5 (CDK5) in the development of mammalian tissues.

    Dr. Aguanno has established a method of faculty and peer training program that
    centers on an ongoing research project in celular and molecular biology, neuroscience, and
    developmental biology. The project is kept continuous and advances through the training of new (“junior”) students by the “senior” students in the lab.

    Dr. Aguanno’s students regurarly present their research findings at regional and national research conferences, often earning top prizes.

  • Funding will support Prof. Mushtare to develop a new series of work, History Repeats Itself and the exhibition of a work developed over the summer of 2010, Story Quilt.

    History Repeats Itself is a data visualization project that manifests itself as yards of fabric hung in a galelery space. It is expected that the patterns will visualize repeating trends with small new twists. The repeating patterns will be automatically generated by a software application created by Prof. Mushatre. The work will be displayed in physical space by using one generated pattern per piece of fabric that will hang from ceiling to floor.
