Publications and Research

Photosynthesis is a chemical process through which light energy is used to convert inorganic material (water and carbon dioxide) into organic molecules. Anaerobic photosynthesis, also known as anoxygenic photosynthesis, is the process by which certain bacteria use light energy to create organic compounds but do not adequately involve oxygen. In this experiment we are trying to influence photosynthesis (light and dark reactions: PS-I and PS-II by electron rich gadolinium/iodine complexes like Eovist and Isovue. We also performed X-ray and NIR reflection spectroscopy (NIRS) to measure Gd difusivity and PS-I/II infrared response. The results for X-ray (45kvp and 5 ...

Ethical Implications Of The Legal Definition Of Brain Death In Light Of Modern Technological Advancements, Jordyn Elise Fullaway Apr 2020

Ethical Implications Of The Legal Definition Of Brain Death In Light Of Modern Technological Advancements, Jordyn Elise Fullaway

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

Modern medical advancements in resuscitation and life support shifted the idea of death from a cardio-respiratory view to that of a neurocentric view. As a result, the definition of brain death (BD) emerged, which is the irreversible loss of brain function in both the brainstem and cerebral cortex. One is considered brain dead if they have no brainstem reflexes, a lack of cerebral blood flow, and an absence of cerebral electrical activity. Consequentially, guidelines for determining BD were defined under law, and it is now legal to remove a patient from life support if they are diagnosed as brain dead ...

Barred From The Outdoors: Barriers To Participation Among Underrepresented Populations In Outdoor Recreation, Diana Khosrovi

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

For many years, outdoor recreation has been an important part of American life. The numerous benefits of outdoor recreation include a general increase in health and practice of a unique skillset which creates a greater sense of self-efficacy for individuals in outdoor spaces. However, not everyone has access to outdoor recreation. Within the outdoor community lies a barrier that affects people of color and underrepresented communities including: the queer community, "unlikely hikers" (individuals who face a physical stigma in outdoor spaces), lower income communities, mentally ill individuals, etc. The purpose of this study is to discover what the barriers behind ...

Fact Or Myth: The Flu Can Be Caused By The Flu Vaccine, Arleigh Wood Apr 2020

Fact Or Myth: The Flu Can Be Caused By The Flu Vaccine, Arleigh Wood

Student Showcase for Research and Creative Inquiry

To many, the flu vaccine seems like a threat to an otherwise healthy individual. People often get the flu after receiving the flu shot, which does not promote confidence in the general public. These and other reasonings have created a myth that the flu vaccine can cause the flu. Understanding how the vaccination is created and how it interacts with the immune system helps to realize why the flu vaccine cannot cause the virus. For the vaccine to work, adaptive immunity must be activated by the introduction of the viral particles in a safe manner. An effective immune response from ...

Abstract

Recent studies have explored the importance on integrating Autism-Specific Care Plans (ACP) into practice. These care plans provide patients with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or their caregivers the opportunity to identify individualized needs that are imperative for healthcare providers to provide personalized care and accommodations. These ACPs identify baseline characteristics, behavior patterns, communication techniques and management strategies for the patient with ASD during hospitalization. The focus of the ACP is to recognize patient needs and make those available to those providing care. Understanding the patient’s normal behavior variations can alert providers to a problems or stressors of the ...


Defining Stress Among Oregon Corrections Professionals, Jessica T. Ballin Apr 2020

Defining Stress Among Oregon Corrections Professionals, Jessica T. Ballin

OHSU-PSU School of Public Health Annual Conference

Corrections professionals experience some of the highest levels of chronic stress compared to other occupations. This leads to poor mental and physical health, increased mortality, negative job performance, and increased economic costs, such as work-related injuries, sick leave, worker’s compensation claims and disability. Improving health and safety among this occupation requires identifying the factors contributing to stress and the associated economic impact. We assessed corrections professionals (n=296) working at six different Oregon Department of Corrections facilities near the Portland-area of varying security levels. Participants completed a cross-sectional survey, including demographics, work history and validated stress and occupational constructs ...
