    the Belle Isle Conservancy Wayne State University and others the project seeks to clear Belle Isle of invasive plants and inform the public on how to control or prevent future invasions of aquatic plants and animals As has happened elsewhere in the United States and Canada invasive species such as Phragmites reeds and round goby fish have taken over large areas of forest and coastlines where they choke out or compete with native species and degrade the habitats for many others But the battle against them on Belle Isle has begun This past summer the project mapped invasive species all over the island park According to Sam Lovall head of the project Now that we know where many of the invasive species are located on the island we ve begun removal work this fall focusing on four of the worst offenders Phragmites reed canary grass purple loosestrife and Japanese knotwood The exhibits at the Belle Isle Aquarium and Belle Isle Nature Zoo will help visitors understand what is being done and how they can stop the spread of invasive species where they live At the aquarium Ram and his students can often be seen climbing in and out of tanks mounting exhibits or bringing in live invasive species already found in the Detroit River or Lake Erie for display Species that are not already found around Belle Isle are represented by models Ram says the public is invited to come see our new exhibit on northern snakehead a carnivorous fish that can breathe air and walk over land The snakehead is just one example of a dangerous invasive species that we hope to keep out of the Great Lakes The snakehead only a model but at 30 inches long an impressive one joins models of Asian carp 3D prints of

    at Wayne State in collaboration with Michael Janik Pennsylvania State University Suljo Linic University of Michigan and Will Medlin University of Colorado According to Nikolla current commercial chemical conversion systems consume a significant fraction of the world s energy resources such as the production of ammonia fertilizers from nitrogen gas This is because one single catalyst material is not optimal for all the elementary reaction steps that are required in the process said Nikolla The current catalyst system is the best compromise but it s still inefficient Improving upon this energy costly situation through application of new catalytic systems is a daunting challenge however Under the National Science Foundation s Designing Materials to Revolutionize and Engineer our Future initiative which this award was made under Nikolla and the multi institutional research team will develop new multicomponent catalyst materials that will allow greater efficiency in energy demanding reaction schemes The research team will seek to make new cascade catalytic materials using nanoscale synthesis techniques to link the multiple components that have different functions in an overall reaction Close linking of these catalytic material components in principle can reduce the formation of unwanted and environmentally hazardous byproducts and decrease the required energy input for necessary chemical reactions added Nikolla While the research team has demonstrated the concepts required to construct the individual catalyst features required for this approach predictive models are needed to guide the design of how to link these components to result in an improved process This project will develop the multi scale models necessary to design complex catalyst assemblies These models will be validated and refined through experimental testing of catalyst materials defined by computational designs Not only will this research bring to life important catalytic materials but it also aims to provide undergraduate students an opportunity to be

    Clinical Psychology that explores two psychological interventions separately and in combination to determine their effectiveness in offering relief to RA patients The study The Effects of Written Emotional Disclosure and Coping Skills Training in Rheumatoid Arthritis A Randomized Clinical Trial led by Mark A Lumley Ph D professor of psychology in Wayne State University s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences revealed cognitive behavioral coping skills training CST had positive effects on the pain and mood of patients that lasted for at least one year whereas written emotional closure WED expressive writing about stress had only temporary and inconsistent benefits on patients joints and functioning and did not help with pain or mood The combination of CST and WED had had no unique benefits CST trains patients in various cognitive and behavioral techniques or skills to enhance their ability to cope with pain and improve their behavioral and psychological functioning A few studies have shown that WED can reduce stress and improve health by having patients write privately for 20 minutes each day for three or four days about stressful experiences and their deepest thoughts and feelings Our study revealed that patients with RA receive positive benefits in both the short and long term using cognitive behavioral techniques such as relaxation increasing pleasant activities changing negative thoughts and problem solving said Lumley WED however was less effective and an examination of patients expressive writings suggests that many patients either did not have much unresolved stress or more likely did not know how to effectively identify important stressors label and express their negative emotions and learn from or resolve these conflicts while writing by themselves We probably need to identify and target those patients with unresolved stress or trauma and then help them more effectively disclose and work with their unexpressed

    by WERF to join other leading water research experts from around the world to provide oversight and coordination of the organization s six research program areas as well as make funding recommendations for research related to water quality Miller is an active water resources researcher focusing on both surface and subsurface water quality and quantity and has more recently investigated the water energy interface She is especially active in urban environmental issues and helped to launch the Urban Watershed Environmental Research Group UWERG which is geared to save protect and improve what s left of the urban pockets of fresh water throughout the Great Lake region Miller and colleagues developed and are testing a system control environment that will optimize the energy consumption of large water utilities such as the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department while improving the health of the Great Lakes The software has the potential to reduce the energy required to run large water utilities by 15 percent while improving the health of the Great Lakes through reduced polluting emissions Since WERF s founding in 1989 they have funded more than 120 million in water based research focused on developing smarter regulations innovative tools improved water treatments and ultimately how to create a cleaner environment It is an honor to be invited to be a member of the Water Environment Research Foundation s research council said Miller WERF is at the forefront of important research in water sciences and engineering and they are leading the way to help meet the water challenges of today as well as those of tomorrow Dr Miller s appointment to the Water Environment Research Foundation s research council is another example of the incredible researchers at Wayne State University that are working to make great changes and improvements in the world which

    Dr Guangzhao Mao professor of chemical engineering and materials science is seeking answers to this problem Mao will explore a new concept of manufacturing nanoscale devices using a solution based process with inexpensive raw materials Mao s concept could potentially revolutionize the field by allowing new functional materials to be added to basic devices from solution droplets Our research will investigate nanorod and nanowire synthesis using nanoparticles as seeds said Mao This will allow us to add flexible materials made of organics and polymers into nanoscale devices One of the devices Mao plans to make is an inexpensive and field ready electrochemical nano sensor Seed mediated crystallization is used to make drug crystals and gem stones and Mao believes that if small seeds are used she can reliably make small crystals These small crystals can be in the form of nanowires to connect to other units of the same device This solution based room temperature process can be scaled up for the manufacturing of molecular conductors connectors switches and networks In addition we will monitor the seed mediated crystallization process in real time as it occurs in a solution using atomic force microscopy to better understand this process added Mao
