  • Ray Barbrick to Edna McGlynn - July 19, 1943

    Barbrick, Ray (1943-07-19)
    At the outset of World War II, Dr. Edna McGlynn began corresponding with Salem Teachers College (Salem State) students and alumni who left home to serve in the military. The Collegiate Defense Committee (CDC), with McGlynn as faculty advisor, was formed to write letters and send care packages to Salemites serving at home and abroad. McGlynn and the CDC corresponded with over one hundred students and alumni; they also maintained current mailing lists of those in the service and prepared and distributed “The Salem Newsletter” in which Dr. McGlynn edited summaries of news from the letters she received.

  • Diversity Matters: From Evolution to the Workplace

    Quiñones-Soto, Semarhy; Salem State University Biology Department and ThermoFisher Scientific (2024-02-15)
    Diversity can refer to genetic variations within an evolving population or to different individuals who contribute to a productive workplace. This talk focuses on the intersection between science and art as a way to teach about diversity.
  • Prolonged Blue Light Exposure Alters Phototransduction Efficiency and One-Carbon Metabolism Processes in the Drosophila Eye

    Stanhope, Sarah; Sponsored by the Salem State University Biology Department and ThermoFisher Scientific (2024-02-15)
    Oxidative stress in the eye is associated with the development and progression of ocular diseases including cataracts, glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy. This talk focuses on how blue light exposure results in oxidative stress in the Drosophila eye and will discuss proteins that are susceptible to changes in oxidation status and/or redox signaling events. Interestingly, we identified several key phototransduction and one-carbon metabolism proteins with oxidative modifications correlating with changes in enzymatic activity.
  • Strategic Growth in Social Vertebrates

    Buston, Peter; Salem State University Biology Department and ThermoFisher Scientific (2024-02-12)
    Recent evidence suggests that social vertebrates can modify their growth and size in an adaptive fashion in response to fine-grain changes in social conditions. In this talk, I will review experimental evidence for strategic growth in social vertebrates, describe conditions under which strategic growth commonly occurs, and highlight examples of convergent evolution of strategic growth across the tree of life.
