Volleyball requires high-impact landings, leading to increased risk of lower extremity injuries, especially in females. The purpose of this study was to quantify and characterize the jump landing patterns that occur during competition in order to help coaches develop safer approaches to training and conditioning.

An ischemic stroke results in a decrease of oxygen and glucose to the brain. Our preliminary results indicate that argongas promotes survival in cells exposedto decreased oxygen and glucose. We will measure cell survival and the expression of key signaling molecules in response to injury and/or argon treatment.

Exertional heat stress increases gastrointestinal barrier permeability and risk of exertional heatstroke via a TLR4-mediated inflammatory pathway. Curcumin has been shown to inhibit the MyD88 & TRIF dependent pathways of TLR4 signaling in vitro but has not been examined in a human exertional heat stress model.

Rosacea, a condition which enlarges facial blood vessels causing redness of the skin, is believed to be caused by Bacillus oleronius, a bacterial commensal of the human hair follicle mite, Demodex. Our current study explores the interaction of common topical antibiotics, and methylglyoxal, anantibacterial component found in Manuka honey.

Coagulase-negative staphylococci (CNS) are involved in hospital-acquired infections, particularly with medical implants. Biofilm production is a factor in these infections. Staphylococcus haemolyticus has the broadest range of antibiotic resistance out of the CNS group. The effects of common antibiotics and FDA-approved compounds on S. haemolyticus were determined through biological assays.

Rosacea is an inflammatory disease of the skin that affects nearly 16 million people in the United States. Methylglyoxal, an active ingredient found in manuka honey, increased the sensitivity of B.oleronius, a rosacea associated bacteria, to a number of commonly prescribed topical antibiotics.

Guest Artist Lindsay Shepherd’s Same Shirt, Different Day explores the contrast between social conformity and one’s individuality. It also expresses the power of vulnerability and human interaction. The work was inspired by the music and how the addition of tap as a percussion element w ould blend with the strings and wind instrument
