Fellowship honors Zhang

first_imgLast fall, the 2013 NDnano Undergraduate Research Fellowship (NURF) was dedicated to Saint Mary’s sophomore Ziqi Zhang, who died when she was struck by a car near the College’s entrance in October 2012. This spring, Saint Mary’s junior Rachael Bridgman received the fellowship in Zhang’s memory. Zhang participated in the NURF program during the summer of 2012, and Bridgman said she “[hopes] to do her name justice.”  “It is a true honor to be able to continue down the path that Ziqi loved, which was research,” Bridgman said. “I am happy to do this summer job in part on her behalf because this is what she would have done this summer. I have heard only wonderful things about her.”  Bridgman she said she didn’t know she was under consideration for the fellowship until recipients were announced on April 12.  “I think I was chosen because I am from Saint Mary›s and also have a great deal of passion for the research I am doing,” she said. “I have also shown a lot of dedication to the lab. I have been working there all year and have put in many hours and come in on the weekends as well to do work.”  This grant, offered by the University of Notre Dame Center for Nano Science and Technology, provides Bridgman, a molecular cell biology major, with an opportunity to experience her first paid research position this summer.  “It covers a 10-week research opportunity with [Notre Dame biochemistry professor] Dr. Zach Schultz in his biochemistry lab and weekly seminars with other undergraduate researchers,” Bridgman said.  The 28 recipients of the award will receive a total of $5,250 for their participation in research this upcoming summer, but Bridgman said she looks forward to benefits beyond the paycheck.  “I get the chance to explore research as a career and participate in high caliber research,” Bridgman said.  Bridgman’s unpaid research was driven by a genuine desire to gain a deeper understand of proteins, she said.  “To be honest I have always been very interested in proteins because they are the building blocks for life after the nucleotides that create them,” Bridgman said. “Single protein detection using probes is useful for a wide range of applications. It has been used to sequence DNA, differentiate between strains of the influenza and analyze movement of molecules across cell membranes in real time. All these applications can lead to medical therapeutic and diagnostic research as well.”  The undergraduate researchers will present the results of their research at the end of the 10 weeks, she said.  “I have to do a presentation at a poster session on my work at the end of the summer,” Bridgman said.  Haley Gordon, a sophomore chemistry and chemical engineering major at Saint Mary’s and Notre Dame, respectively, said Bridgman’s fellowship was well-deserved, and notable because it was given to a Saint Mary’s senior. “She’s one of the most hardworking students I know,” Gordon said. “She’s incredibly diligent.” Bridgman said she plans to pursue a career in cancer research and oncology.

NPFL…NPFL…NPFL… Wikki Piles Pressure on Flying Antelopes

first_imgWikki Tourists yesterday moved into second place on the Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) table after a 3-0 spanking of bottom team Ikorodu United in Bauchi.Wikki now have 31 points, same as Rivers United, but enjoy a superior goals difference.The Bauchi club is just a point behind leaders Rangers, pending the final determination of the expulsion of Giwa FC from the league.The leading scorer in the league Godwin Obaje did not score for Wikki yesterday, but Saidu Abdullahi got a brace with Hamza Tiya also on target for the home team.There were also home wins for Warri Wolves and Lobi Stars.Wolves beat El Kanemi 3-1, while 10-man Lobi pipped Rivers United 1-0.Lobi defender Solomon Kwambe was sent off after his second booking and Rivers United had the chance to draw level at the stroke of full time but Chinonso Okonkwo blasted wide his penalty.Meanwhile, Rivers United coach, Stanley Eguma, has warned that it is too early in the campaign to start talking of his club winning the Nigeria league crown.Rivers United failed to go top of the table after the loss to Lobi as the league reaches the halfway mark.However, experienced coach Eguma insisted the journey to the championship is still a long way off.“Talking about us winning the title at this stage of the season is an insult to all the other teams in the league,” he maintained.“It is still too early to start talking about such things because we have not even got to the half way stage of the season.“There are still so many games to be played, but our objectives are clear to us.“We will continue working hard and taking things one game at a time.”Eguma is still without first choice defenders, Yaovi Douhadji and Chigozie Ihunda, while Ghanaian marksman Godbless Asamoah, who suffered a hamstring strain in midweek, did not travel to Makurdi.Ivorian star Guy Kuemian however made a welcome return to first-team action when he played for the first time since April 10 in Wednesday’s 1-0 win over Akwa United in Port Harcourt.Eguma also said his side was the underdogs in yesterday’s match in Makurdi.Rivers United has won four of their last six games.MATCH DAY 19Plateau Utd 0-0 PillarsLobi 1-0 Rivers UtdWikki 3-0 IkoroduAkwa Utd 2-0 3SCWolves 3-1 El KanemiAbia War’ 1-2  SunshineShare this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
