Dr. Orlando-Marquez C. Kittrell, founding director of the Office of State Grants (OSG), presented  “PWI Access, DENIED!” on June 2, 2016 at NCORE 2016 in San Francisco, CA.

The NCORE 2016 poster presentation and discussions examined the collective legislative actions that established higher education opportunity programs in PA, NY and NJ; opportunity programs that focus on academically underprepared and economically disadvantaged students; the majority of students are considered ethnic minorities. In part, these programs were designed to facilitate access to a college education and to increase the number of historically underrepresented students attending independent colleges and universities that are considered predominately white institutions (PWIs).

Jean Hardwick, Professor of Biology, was a awarded a 3 year research grant (~$365,000) from the National Institute of Health to support her research on the role of neuropeptides in the remodeling of the cardiac nervous system with heart disease.  Hardwick and her students are examining the changes induced by chronic heart disease in an animal model of myocardial infarction (or a heart attack) to determine how specific signaling molecules are changing and whether these changes are contributing to the pathology of the disease, or acting to improve cardiac function.  The NIH grant, which will begin later this summer, will allow the lab to purchase new equipment for sophisticated electrical recordings from neurons, as well as funding student research opportunities during the summers.
