  • TITLE: Interdisciplinary Simulation: Perceptions of Graduate Health Science Students.

  • Interprofessionalcollaboration has been linked to improved patient care [1]. The unique combination of programs within the College of Health Sciences allows for meaningful surgical simulations between specialties mimicking real professional interactions. The World Health Organization, Institute of Medicine and many diverse healthcare professional organizations in the United States support interprofessional education [2-4]. Simulation training is an ideal method of interprofessional education [5].

  • One of the barriers to effective interprofessional education and collaboration is the presence of negative preconceptions held by the participants [6].

  • This study intends to use the revised Interprofessional Education Perceptions Scale [7] to assess student perceptions of their own profession and other professions before and after collaborative simulation exercises between nurse anesthesia, podiatric medicine, and cardiovascular science students.

  • TITLE: Identifying the NPM1 interactome in neuroblastomacells

  • Neuroblastoma, a cancer arising from the sympathetic nervous system, is the most common extra-cranial solid tumor in children.

  • Our data corroborates a previous study that shows an increase in NPM1 in high-risk neuroblastoma. NPM1 is a nucleolar protein and participates in a wide range of biological processes including ribosome biogenesis, chromatin remodeling, cell cycle, apoptosis and DNA repair. NPM1 functions in these processes via interaction with different binding partners in some cases by sequestering them in the nucleoli. Of the relatively small number of known NPM1 interactors phosphorylation status often modulates interactor binding.

  • Here we propose to identify novel NPM1 interactors in neuroblastoma using a Yeast two-hybrid (Y2H) screen followed by confirmation of interactions in neuroblastoma cells.

  • These pilot studies will identify a pool of NPM1-interactors to study further and generate a neuroblastoma cell line with tagged NPM1 for future mechanistic studies. This work will help elucidate the role of NPM1 and its interactome in neuroblastoma and may identify novel targets for drug therapeutics.

Research club
Research Club

  • A forum for those interested in research to share their ideas, concerns, and needs...

  • Monthly meetings usually include an informal half-hour presentation of ongoing research by a faculty member, then discussion of some set of related topics.

  • Discussion topics have included where to go and from whom to get statistics support, what should be expected of master’s level research students, what kind of equipment needs to be requested through capital budget requests and who would share the equipment, how research ideas can be magnified by collaborations among MWU faculty, what equipment is broken and how long it will take to fix or replace, and so on.

  • Ellen Tarr and Kathy Lawson are the organizers, and they do a terrific job.

-Dr. Soby’s excellent description

Research survey

  • CHS Dean’s Office will be sending out a scholarship and research survey for faculty

  • Please complete 

Sample size calculation
Sample size calculation

  • n = s2(Z1-b + Z1-a/2)2a = 0.05

    (m0 – m1)2b = 0.20

    power = 0.8

    n number of measurements per group

    s variation in the sample

    a probability of type I error

    b probability of a type II error

    m0 – m1 treatment effect

    Z values from stats tables

    Z0.8 = 0.84

    Z0.975 = 1.96

Sample size calculation1
Sample size calculation

  • n = s2(Z1-b + Z1-a/2)2a = 0.05

    (m0 – m1)2b = 0.20

    power = 0.8

    = (1.7)2(0.84 + 1.96)2

    (14.3 – 15.7)2

    = 11.56, so 12 per group
