Cancer Prevention & Health Promotion Research in Indian Country
The 16th Annual American Indian Health Research Conference (AIHRC) takes place Saturday, October 20, 2018, at the University of North Dakota School of Medicine and Health Sciences in Grand Forks. The conference offers opportunities to discuss research directions, partnerships, and collaboration in health research focusing on American Indians.
Rodney Haring, PhD, MSW, assistant professor of oncology in the Department of Cancer Health Disparities Research at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center in Buffalo, New York, is the keynote speaker. The 2018 AIHRC will also feature speakers from the: American Indian Cancer Foundation, American Cancer Society, American Indian Public Health Resource Center at North Dakota State University, and Minnesota Department of Human Services
Plan to attend the ND INBRE Annual Research Symposium, scheduled for October 13 & 14, 2018. Undergraduates and faculty from across the state will present their research in a series of morning oral sessions and an afternoon poster session. An interactive presentation on graduate and medical school admissions is planned. On Sunday, a variety of technical workshops are available for students to attend. These include Western Blotting, Confocal Microscopy, qPCR, Immunohistochemistry and Flow Cytometry.
Award winners have been announced for Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) that was held in Pittsburgh, Penn., recently. Among the winners was Cavalier, N.D., native Alyssa Kemp, the Senior Division’s third place winner at the 68th Annual North Dakota State Science and Engineering Fair, held in the UND Memorial Union in April.
In Pittsburgh, Kemp won two very generous scholarships from Arizona State University and Drexel University—the Intel ISEF Scholarship and Full Tuition scholarship, respectively—for her poster “Buffering the Bloom: The Effect of Nutrient Management Practices on Pond Eutrophication.”
At the North Dakota State level, each region sends 1-3 students (depending on participation) to ISEF. This year, twelve students qualified and travelled to the international fair. Julian Spilman from Mandan High School, received a Fourth Award ($500) in Environmental Engineering for her project “ Enhanced Biofilter Control of CAFO Green House Gas Emissions”.
