Foods for Health and the Office of Diversity & Inclusion collaborated during Spring 2018 to identify and place four talented undergraduate students from diverse backgrounds for paid summer internships in Ohio State metabolomics labs. The students will present their research involvement at a Summer Research Internship Culminating Seminar on Thursday, July 26. The four ODI Scholars (pictured left to right) selected as the inaugural Metabolomics Interns are: Brett Mitchell, mentored by Dr. Willa Hsueh; Neway Araya, mentored by Dr. Matthias Klein; Kyler Wilson, mentored by Dr. Vicki Wysocki; and Kiran Boyinepally, mentored by Dr. Ken Riedl and Dr. Ewy Mathe.
Through the InFACT-led AgriCULTURE Gardens Initiative, a demonstration plot featuring native plants was seeded outside of Smith Lab in May 2018. In collaboration with Landscape Services, students from the Landscape Architecture program at Ohio State's Knowlton School designed the garden. Students from Ohio State's Sustainable Growing Club (GrOSU) and staff from InFACT will maintain the space.
Cranking up your headphones or scrambling for a front-row spot at rock shows could be damaging more than your hearing. "Hearing loss, even minor deficits, can take a toll in young people - they're using cognitive resources that could be preserved until much later in life," says Yune Lee, a CBI affiliate and assistant professor in Speech & Hearing Sciences. "Most concerning, this early hearing loss could pave the way for dementia."
The 2nd Annual Ohio Mass Spectrometry and Metabolomics Symposium (OMSMS) was held at the Blackwell Inn on May 16-17, 2018. Over 200 participants from 37 organizations attended plenary sessions with keynote and invited speakers in Food and Nutritional Metabolomics (Chair: Josh Blakeslee), Multi-omics for Health (Chair: Ewy Mathe), Advances in Mass Spectrometry (Chair: Amanda Hummon), and NMR- and/or MS-based Metabolomics (Chair: Rafael Bruschweiler); poster and oral presentations (submitted abstracts); industry-sponsored Lunch and Learn sessions; breakout sessions (Preparing for a Career in Industry and Making Your Science Accessible with Foods for Health Ted-style Discovery Talks); and evening reception.
