  • OHIO: Compass | Russ College bioinformatics course gives students chance to study rare disease
    class along for the ride Welch tasked the students with examining the DNA code of the APTX gene which causes the apraxia as well as related genes that are involved in the disease in an effort to understand their interrelationships He has seen the personal aspects of this case motivate the students to work through the course s challenges They re excited they want to find the disease related patterns and codes he said If we discover them then that s a new insight into these genes and potentially into this disease Robert Schmidt a first year computer science master s student says the course cross trains students in genetic biology and computer science in order to develop them into computational biologists The AOA1 Project that Dr Welch has assigned to us tasks us with developing software that can search for motifs in the APTX gene sequence in an attempt to gain a better understanding of the genetics behind oculomotor apraxia Schmidt said Welch pointed out although the work may be stimulating due to its cross disciplinary nature it can also be extremely daunting at times A computer scientist who wants to do bioinformatics has to take courses in biology and chemistry A biologist who wants to do bioinformatics has to take courses in calculus and one or two courses in math and then they re going to need to take some computer science courses he explained It s hard work and they have to be really motivated and inspired to do that extra work Meg Nicol a biological sciences major said the possibility of helping out a family like the McCollisters is worth it This is certainly one of my most challenging classes this semester but I also feel that it will be the most rewarding she explained The McCollisters aren t some fictitious family in part of a prompt they are real people whose children are dealing with the disease every day According to Brian McCollister the respect is certainly mutual My wife and I love Ohio University students and we care deeply for our children McCollister said It is rare that these two worlds connect so we are deeply grateful that Ohio University students are looking for ways to research this rare disease The consensus among the students is that they are glad to help What we do makes a difference Schmidt said Even if this project doesn t lead to any short term results it might just be the spark that ignites the flame in one of our minds published December 10 2012 9 48 AM Submit an Announcement Comments Subscribe to Compass listserv Share an Accolade Faculty Staff Student or Departmental Achievement When you bring your first child home from the hospital to see them grow and be so full of life is the ultimate joy as a parent said Brian McCollister Athens resident father and Missional Team Leader for Cru a not for profit Christian organization However when Brian and his wife Jenny noticed

  • OHIO: Compass | OMSAR developing ways to support former foster care youth
    in my head Walters said Enthusiastic about the potential impacts of the program Walters renewed his position as a liaison with the Ohio Reach Program The Ohio Reach Program is a statewide initiative to support the retention and recruitment of emancipated foster care youth in higher education The program is directly linked to institutions across the state through on campus liaisons Walters plans to carry out his duties as a liaison by designating OMSAR as an office of support for emancipated foster care students I really want to integrate Ohio Reach seamlessly with what we offer already through OMSAR said Walters Much of what we do academic related community service and leadership will definitely relate to this group One way that OMSAR will serve emancipated foster care youth is through LINKS a mentorship program for first year students The program offers peer mentorship free tutoring and workshops that promote academic success The LINKS program I think is a huge bonus for this population emancipated foster care youth because they re going to start college with a lot of support from the jump that they wouldn t ordinarily get at other institutions said Walters Walters added that emancipated foster care youth could also benefit from OMSAR s merit based scholarships which are specifically geared toward students from disproportionally represented populations We are seeing that there is this group that we have potentially neglected so we seek to make ourselves and the college campus aware of this situation and proactively create interventions that will promote retention and academic success said Walters Programming for success Emancipated foster care youth have experiences that are unique and different from the average college student Without a home to go back to some students who grew up in the foster care system are left without options during

  • OHIO: H1N1 - H1N1 Flu Information
    to 1 30 p m Monday through Friday CPS also provides consultation to faculty administrators and parents of students What is H1N1 swine flu H1N1 previously referred to as swine flu is a new influenza virus causing illness in people This new virus was first detected in people in the United States in April 2009 This virus is spreading from person to person worldwide probably in much the same way that regular seasonal influenza viruses spread What are the signs and symptoms of the H1N1 virus in people The symptoms of H1N1 flu virus in people include fever cough sore throat runny or stuffy nose body aches headache chills and fatigue A significant number of people who have been infected with this virus also have reported diarrhea and vomiting Illness with the new H1N1 virus has ranged from mild to severe While most people who have been sick have recovered without needing medical treatment hospitalizations and deaths from infection with this virus have occurred Will the University test students who become ill to determine if they have H1N1 Individual health care providers as well as the Ohio Department of Health determine when to perform these tests on individual ILI cases To date Hudson Health Center has sent one specimen for H1N1 testing The results of that test were positive We ask that our University community keep in mind that the general treatment for ILI whether it is seasonal influenza or H1N1 is the same For this reason it is not essential in most cases to determine whether they are H1N1 or seasonal flu According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention CDC in the Northern hemisphere winter is the time for flu While seasonal flu outbreaks can happen as early as October most of the time influenza activity peaks in January or later As the time for seasonal flu is not yet upon us individuals experiencing influenza like illness ILI at this time are most likely to have H1N1 How long can an infected person spread this virus to others People infected with seasonal and H1N1 flu shed virus and may be able to infect others from 1 day before getting sick to 5 to 7 days after This can be longer in some people especially children and people with weakened immune systems and in people infected with the new H1N1 virus How does H1N1 virus spread Spread of H1N1 virus is thought to occur in the same way that seasonal flu spreads Flu viruses are spread mainly from person to person through coughing or sneezing by people with influenza Sometimes people may become infected by touching something such as a surface or object with flu viruses on it and then touching their mouth or nose Is there a vaccine for H1N1 The university will hold a 2009 H1N1 vaccination clinic from 1 to 6 p m on Sunday Jan 10 for all Ohio University faculty staff students and dependents The clinic will take place at the Walter Hall
