Oxidative stress is a key component in the development of many chronic diseases, including Alzheimer’s, cardiovascular diseases, and carcinogenesis. Heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) is a highly inducible cytoprotective protein that produces the antioxidant, bilirubin. Bilirubin is the most potent antioxidant in mammalian serum, and thus is critical for mitigating oxidative stress and inflammation. Small molecule electrophiles and metals have independently been shown to induce HO-1. We hypothesized co-treatment could generate more-than-additive, synergistic induction of HO-1. We find that sulforaphane does synergistically induce the HO-1 protein when combined with Cu(II). The mechanism of this synergy is explored.

Now entering its eighth year, the Amgen-UROP Scholars Program invites undergardatues to participate in faculty-mentored summer research in MIT laboratories. This intensive nine-week program focuses on cultivating and supporting partnerships between MIT faculty and undergraduates in the areas of science and biotechnology. Students indicating a strong desire to engage in research collaborations within these areas will be selected from colleges and universities from around the U.S., as well as the MIT undergraduate population.
The 2014 Summer Program runs from June 9th to August 8th. Apply online between November 1, 2013 to February 3, 2014: www.amgenscholars.com; Admissions decisions: Early March 2014; July 2014 (dates TBA): Mid-summer symposium at UCLA in Los Angelese, CA (travel expenses; room & board are covered).
Amgen-UROP Scholars working 40 hours per week for the nine-week period will earn $4,700, at an hourly wage of $13.05. In addition, an $800 meal allowance and on-camus housing is provided to all Scholars. Travel to and from MIT for the beginning and end of the Program is covered for visiting (non-MIT) students. Must be a U.S. citizen or U.S. permanent resident; undergraduate students enrolled in accredited four-year colleges or universities in the U.S., Puerto Rico or other U.S. territories; and Sophomores (with four quarters or three semesters of college experience), juniors or non-graduating seniors (who are returning in the fall to continue undergraduate studies). U.S. Program applicants must also have: a cumulative grade point average of 3.2 or above; and an interest in pursuing a Ph.D. or M.D.-Ph.D. To learn more about the MIT Amgen-UROP Scholars program and how to apply please visit: www.amgenscholars.com

UT Southwestern is also sponsoring the Quantitative and Physical Science Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (QP-SURF) Program. This program, initially funded by a NIGMS training grant and now funded internally, will accept 10 students who are earning their undergraduate degrees in the field of biomedical engineering, mathematics, computer science, physics, or chemistry. The goal of QP-SURF is to give students an intensive, research experience and demonstrate to students in the physical and quantitative sciences how their knowledge and skill sets are applied in a biomedical research setting. QP-SURF students would carry out their 10-week research project in a biomedical engineering, biophysics, computational biology, or quantitative/analytical chemistry laboratory. For more information, and to apply online, please go to www.utsoutwestern.edu/QP-SURF.
Both summer program will run from June 2nd through August 8th, 2014. Participants will be selected based on their letters of reference, course work, and experience. The stipend for the 10-week program is $4,000. If a fellow requires housing, the costs will be covered by the program: however, fellows are responsible for paing their own travel expenses. Application deadline is February 9, 2014. Any problems or questions, please email email@example.com
Carnegie Mellon University Department of Chemistry's 3rd Biennial John A. Pople Lectures in the Theoretical and Computational Chemistry
Bryn Mawr College is a small liberal arts college 20 minutes west of Philadelphia, located in a beautiful suburban environment. There is easy access to Philadelphia by train and a consortial arrangement exists that provides our students access to the University of Pennsylvania for courses and/or facilities when needed.
If you feel Bryn Mawr might offer an attractive environment for some of your students to pursue graduate studies in chemistry, please direct them to the website for our graduate program:
http://www.brynmawr.edu/chemistry/graduate/. At the website you can learn about our faculty and their research areas, see where our current students come from, and read why they chose Bryn Mawr for graduate studies towards a Ph.D.
We will be hosting a Graduate Open House on Oct. 26th. This is a terrific opportunity for students to meet faculty and current students and see first hand what doing graduate work in a liberal arts environment would be like. I will be sending a small poster (see attached) by US mail that advertises our Open House on Oct. 26th. Please mention this opportunity to any of your students who might be interested. Students may email me to register for the event.
If you or your students have any questions, please contact me.

CHF presents Vernacular Science of the New Madrid Earthquakes: Creating knowledge in the Early United States - March 15, 2013
Wednesday, February 27, 2013
Thursday, February 21, 2013
The Symposium will commence at 5:00 PM on the Saint Joseph's University Campus in Philadelphia, PA. It will open with the keynote address in the Wolfington Teletorium in Mandeville Hall. The poster sessions will start at 6:45 in the Campion Student Center.
This year's keynote speaker is Dr. Irene Pepperberg, Research Associate and Lecturer, Dept. of Psychology, Harvard University, and Adjunct Associate Professor, Dept. of Psychology, Brandeis University. Her talk is entitled "Numerical Competence Studies on a Grey Parrot." This talk is free and open to the public. Dr. Pepperberg will also be this year's recipient of the Christopher Clavius, S.J. award. This award recognizes the work of inspirational scientists, researchers and policy makers. Clavius, a Jesuit mathematician and astronomer is best known as an architect of the modern Gregorian calendar and as an inspiration to such thinkers as Kepler, Descartes and Leibniz. As one of the world's foremost authorities on animal cognitive capabilities, Dr. Pepperberg is particularly deserving of this award. Indeed, over the course of her impressive career she has been the recipient of many fellowships, grants, and awards. Her book, The Alex Studies, describing over 20 years of peer-reviewed experiments on Grey parrots, received favorable mention from publications as diverse as the New York Times and Science. Her memoir, Alex & Me, was a New York Times bestseller and won a Christopher Award. She has presented her findings nationally and internationally at universities and scientific congresses, often as a keynote or plenary speaker, and has published numerous journal articles, reviews, and book chapters. She is a fellow of the Animal Behavior Society, the American Psychological Association, the American Psychological Society, the American Ornithologists' Union, AAAS, the Midwestern Psychological Society, the Eastern Psychological Association (where she is now also a board member), and presently serves as consulting editor for three journals and as associate editor for The Journal of Comparative Psychology.
The registration fee for the symposium is $25 for students and $40 for faculty members. The optional dinner at Saint Joseph's is an additional $15 for both students and faculty. Registration and abstracts are due by Tuesday March 19th, 2013. For more information including online registration for the symposium, please visit http://www.sju.edu/srs. Please share this announcement with any potentially interested students or faculty. We look forward to seeing you and your students this April.
