Biological Sciences - Master of Arts (MA)

Body: 
  Introduction   The Master of Arts (MA) in Biological Sciences serves as the core degree for those seeking additional academic credentials while offering academic enrichment, skill development, and career advancement for working scientists. Designed for professionals employed in biology-related fields such as health care, agriculture, environmental science, and teaching, the program equips graduates to take on new challenges and expanded workplace responsibilities. The primary options for MA track include: the MAGB (MA, General Biology track): a literature-based thesis in the biological sciences the MABE (MA, Biology Education track): an education focus for certified teachers the MAAB (MA, Applied Biosciences track): focusing on business / biology skills for those in commercial / industrial fields Course selections allow additional flexibility. The program is structured to accommodate students’ work schedules. Many students enroll on a part-time basis to balance their professional duties with graduate school. In recognition of that need for balance, Delaware State does not require students to complete a laboratory-based research thesis for the MA degree. For those seeking research laboratory experiences, see the Master of Science (MS) degree in Biological Sciences. Professional Preparation Graduate students in biology at Delaware State develop superior academic and communication skills. They learn to design experiments, analyze results, present their findings to peers, and write for scientific publications. Faculty Master’s candidates in Biology work closely with faculty members to design a literature topic. The program’s small scope and size ensures a high degree of direct interaction between professors and graduate students. Delaware State’s biology faculty includes highly accomplished researchers and educators. Graduate students benefit from professors’ experience as well as their professional and academic networks. Research and Experience Although MA students do not participate directly in laboratory-based research, they can interact with active researchers and draw upon their wealth of knowledge and resources. The literature-based thesis requires extensive knowledge-based research since the final report is presented to a thesis committee. Although there are active, well-funded inquiries on campus in such fields as neuroscience, biofuels, cancer, DNA analysis, plant breeding, and gene manipulation; the topic can be selected by the student and an appropriate advisor / committee will be identified, if possible.

Article contributed by Dr. Renu Tripathi. Dr. Murali Temburni awarded competitive NSF Research Initiation Award grant April 28, 2014 - Dr. Murali Temburni, Assistant Professor in the Biological Sciences Department, received notification of award for funding by the National Science Foundation for his grant proposal entitled "Role of Astrocytes in the development of sychronized bursting behavior in neuronal networks." This two-yr grant funds Dr. Temburni's ongoing work in the field of neurobiology.  Neurons communicate in the brain by firing signals called action potentials. During synchronous activity, groups of neurons in the brain all fire action potentials at the same frequency. This synchronous activity is important during brain development for neurons to recognize and link up with functionally similar neurons – thus dividing the brain into functional modules. Abnormal synchronization can also occur in the awake brain leading to epileptic seizures. Unraveling the cellular and molecular basis of neuronal synchronization is necessary not only for understanding the development of neuronal networks but also for developing meaningful therapies for epilepsy. Currently there is no effective therapy for epilepsy. Glial cells (of which astrocytes are a subset) were traditionally thought to be support cells for neurons to grow, develop and survive. However, recent evidence shows that they not only help neurons survive and form connections, but also participate in neuronal communication. The current view of neuronal communication involves a “tripartite synapse” with a pre-and post-synaptic neurons and a peri-synaptic glial cell. This project which received an overall rating of “excellent” was conceived and developed at DSU. Dr. Temburni, a molecular biologist studying synapse formation in the vertebrate brain using the developing chicken brain as a model system, came up with the idea for this proposal at DSU in collaboration with DSU scientists. According to Dr. Temburni, this project would not have been possible without input from his mentor, Dr. Melissa Harrington, a neurophysiologist and collaborator, Dr. Tomasz Smolinski, a computational neuroscientist and support from his Chair, Dr. Leonard Davis. Dr. Temburni’s team of researchers – Karla Sanchez, a graduate student, undergraduates, Nkoli Agbazue, Jaskirandeep Kaur and Kasey Cosden are generating exciting data which confirms their initial suspicions – astrocytes are necessary for neurons to synchronize their activity. The team is currently working on unraveling the molecular pathways involved. This NSF funded project will also involve high school students from the Early College High School at DSU. Dr. Judi Coffield, Director of the ECHS, is part of the team and will select high school students interested in research to work in Dr. Temburni’s lab. The selected students will participate in research under the guidance from Dr. Temburni, along with their peer undergraduate mentors. According to Dr. Temburni, “catching them early” is the surest way of hooking students on scientific research – and this project will help achieve that goal. Dr. Noureddine Melikechi and Ms. Alissa Mezzacappa receive high honors from NASA for contributions to ChemCam Instrument Dvlpmt & Science Team   April 24, 2014 - As members of the Mars Science Laboratory ChemCam Instrument Development & Science Team, Dr. Noureddine Melikechi and his student Ms. Alissa Mezzacappa, Ph.D. candidate in Optics, have received one of NASA’s Highest Honor Awards: the Group Achievement Award.  The ChemCam team has received this award “For exceptional achievement defining ChemCam’s scientific goals and requirements, developing the instrument and investigation, and operating ChemCam successfully on Mars.” This NASA Honor Award is presented to a number of carefully-selected teams who have distinguished themselves by making outstanding contributions to the NASA mission.    Dr. Michael Gitcho receives Alzheimer's Association grant Dr. Michael Gitcho pictured above with Katie Macklin, executive director for the Delaware region of the Alzheimer's Association Delaware Valley Chapter April 16, 2014 - Dr. Michael A. Gitcho, Assistant Professor in the Biological Sciences Dept , was recently awarded a research grant by the Delaware Valley Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association. This award was granted into support of Dr. Gitcho's research, which focuses on a protein (TDP-43) that is critical to the normal function of the brain cell.  When TDP-43 is altered, this results in the development of neurological diseases, such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and dementia. One of the most common form of dementia, Alzheimer's accounts for 70 to 80% of all cases and the greatest risk factor is aging.  This progressive disease slowly destroys memory, thinking, and reasoning and over time it makes even the simplest tasks impossible to do.  Currently, there are an estimated 5.3 million people aged 65 and older with the disease and it is projected that over the next 10 years there will be an additional 10 million diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.  Dr. Gitcho and colleagues have observed that mice that are engineered to have Alzheimer-like symptoms, similar to those with Alzheimer’s disease, also have an increased level of abnormal TDP-43 (TDP-43 has been found to be altered in up to 50% of those with Alzheimer’s disease).  Dr. Gitcho is hopeful that his research will provide insights into the relationship between TDP-43 and Alzheimer’s disease which could provide us a better understanding of how this devastating disease progresses and, in turn, lead to the development of new therapeutics.  OSCAR Student and others take 2nd place at Innovative Business Plan Competition in Washington DC April 5, 2014 - This year a team of six (6) students from DSU’s College of Business and the CMNST’s Department of Physics and Engineering won second place at the Innovations in Social and Business Entrepreneurship Business Plan Competition 2014. The competition, organized by the School of Business & Public Administration of University of the District of Columbia, took place on April 5, 2014. Students participating in the competition  represented universities and colleges in the District of Columbia, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia. The purpose of the competition was “to educate and provide an experiential opportunity to showcase the creativity of tomorrow’s business leaders.” Teams were challenged to: Create business plans that addressed an identified social issue or need, using a social business entrepreneurship business model; and Present business implementation plans or delivery modes that demonstrate how the plan can impact communities. DSU’s team presented a business plan based on an interdisciplinary project that developed a sensor to assess environmental air quality at local (e.g. Kent County) and state levels. Entitled “Next-generation sensors for improving human health and urban air quality- A technology driven business model for young entrepreneurs,” the project was funded through a DSU PRIDE grant that was authored by Dr. Mohammed Khan, Assistant Professor of Physics (PI); Dr. Mukti Rana, Assistant Professor of Physics (co-PI); and Dr. Nandita Das, Associate Professor of Business (co-PI). The project entails a prototype greenhouse gas sensor technology for environmental applications, developed in DSU’s own engineering laboratories, which will be transformed into a marketable product through a model business plan developed by DSU’s College of Business team. The goal of the project is to expose students to the critical stages of research conducted in the laboratories and the aspects of commercialization of such technologies through interdisciplinary collaboration in a unique academic setting.  Biology student receives prestigious Arthur Ashe Award March 27, 2014 - Accolades go to Forensic Science (biology) major and student athlete, Elaine Peete, who was recently named a 2014 Arthur Ashe Jr. Sports Scholar by Diverse Issues in Higher Education. This award (created in 1992) is sponsored by the Diverse Issues in Higher Education publishing group to help recognize minority student-athletes who are competing at high levels of both academics and athletics.
