Mobile Youth and Poverty Study

In this research opportunity, students will work with the Data Archivist for the Mobile Youth and Poverty Study and/or other identified faculty, based on the students' interests to create research publications, both manuscripts and conference proposals that explore risk and protective factors for primarily adolescents who grow up in impoverished communities. This opportunity lends itself more toward quantitative methods, but qualitative opportunities may be explored. In this research opportunity, students will work with secondary data sources. Typical work may include conducting literature reviews, data analysis, and manuscript and/or conference proposal preparation. Students' research interests will be taken into consideration, and there m...

Phylogenomics and Evolutionary Genomics of Marine Invertebrates

I'm looking to recruit a computer scientist interested in biology and bioinformatics to work on a project that aims to improve the methods used to identify orthologous genes (genes related by speciation and not gene duplication). My collaborators and I previously developed a program to this end (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3825643/) and I am looking for a top-notch student interested in helping to further develop this software or to write a new, more advanced program. This work is expected to result in one publication describing the approach and software that would be led by the student researcher as well as opportunities to collaborate on other publications employing this software. ...

Online Monitoring System for Concrete Structures Affected by Alkali-Silica Reaction (ASR)

Students will be tasked with assistant a graduate student with fabricating reinforced and unreinforced concrete specimens for this project funded by the Department of Energy to study how to monitor the progress of alkali-silica reaction in concrete structures. This project is a collaborative effort with researchers at Nebraska, South Carolina, Georgia Tech, and Idaho National Laboratory. It involves research at the intersection of construction materials, mechanics, structural health monitoring, and geochemistry. There will be opportunities to meet faculty and students from these different institutions. Initial tasks will include fabricating formwork, tying rebar, installing instrumentation, batching materials for concrete mixes, and as...

Playing molecular "legos" through layer by layer assembly of molecules

Kids can build up fascinating giant objects by using a variety of Lego pieces of different shapes. The assembly of these giant objects relies on layer-by-layer assembly (more precisely, piece by piece) that is based on the recognition between the Lego pieces and the assembling object. Such recognition can be repeated owing to the generation of new anchor points by the assembled Lego piece for the next Lego piece. The question is what happens if “Lego” pieces are in the nanometer range, such as molecular “Lego”. How can we assemble them and would it be interesting? Our view is that if we can understand molecules, Lego pieces of a size of (10-10 m), and their interaction with other molecules, we should be able to manipulate these mo...

Xylochemistry - Chemistry for a Sustainable Future.

Xylochemistry - the use of wood as a source of raw materials for chemical synthesis - provides a climate-neutral alternative to the conventional use of fossil carbon sources such as natural gas or oil. Xylochemistry and specifically the STANCE Consortium (a collaboration between UA, the Johannes Gutenberg University-Mainz, Germany, and the Virginia Commonwealth University) is developing an economically and environmentally sustainable technological path from wood to commodity chemicals, materials, pharmaceuticals, and fuels. In the early days of organic chemistry natural substances such as ethanol or bitter almond oil (benzaldehyde) were the only organic chemical substances available with relative purity. In the 19th century the initiall...

Brain Biomarkers that Predict Risk for Alzheimer's Disease

Brain data can be useful in predicting individuals that might be more susceptible to age-related diseases like Alzheimer's disease. Help will be needed in any of the following areas: 1) Conduct a literature review on brain differences in populations at risk for Alzheimer's disease, 2) Conduct cognitive testing on individuals that might get Alzheimer's disease, 3) Conduct MRI testing in Birmingham to measure brain variables in individuals who might get Alzheimer's disease, 4) Analyze data using brain and cognitive variables to test for group differences. There will be a steep learning curve and a strong internal-motivation of learning new material is required....
