Tuberculosis: Illegal Immigrants And Deadly Spread, Abigail Foust 2022 University of Missouri, St. Louis

Tuberculosis: Illegal Immigrants And Deadly Spread, Abigail Foust

Undergraduate Research Symposium

Tuberculosis is a bacterial disease caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis. It most commonly affects the lungs, but it can develop elsewhere in the body. Untreated, tuberculosis usually leads to death. If tuberculosis is treated but consumption of the proper medicine is terminated prematurely, the bacteria can mutate into multi-drug resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB). In the United States, the largest percentage of people with tuberculosis are foreign-born individuals. This is due to a number of factors, including cultural stigmas associated with tuberculosis and a hesitancy to get treatment. This is an especially prevalent issue in the case of illegal immigrants. First of all ...


The Demise Of The Beef Industry, Natalie Powers 2022 University of Missouri, St. Louis

The Demise Of The Beef Industry, Natalie Powers

Undergraduate Research Symposium

Bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) is a neurological disorder commonly found in cows. The hypothesis for the causation of BSE surrounds a protein known as the prion protein. For the most part, prion proteins are not harmful to cattle. Yet, when it mutates, the protein begins attacking the central nervous system. The protein causes the infected cattle to lose coordination and become violent. This is where it gets its nickname, mad cow disease. The research in this project explores the economic impact of mad cow disease. The reactions from consumers surrounding BSE started the downfall of the economy. It also almost ...


Respiratory Diseases: Results Of 9/11 Rescue And Recovery Effort, Isabel Schnittker 2022 University of Missouri, St. Louis

Respiratory Diseases: Results Of 9/11 Rescue And Recovery Effort, Isabel Schnittker

Undergraduate Research Symposium

After the Twin Towers collapsed on September 11, 2001, first responders assisted rescue and recovery efforts. While clearing debris and searching for survivors at Ground Zero, first responders inhaled particulate matter (PM). PM included pulverized cement, glass fibers, asbestos, and lead. Although first responders had respiratory protective equipment (RPE), the organizations that oversaw the rescue and recovery efforts emphasized neither the necessity of wearing respirators nor the threat of toxins in the air. As a result, many first responders developed respiratory diseases, such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and asthma. For instance, James Zadroga was ...


Jesse James' Hideout Or Civil War Midden?, Steven Meyer, Tim Evers, Ben Ebert 2022 University of Missouri, St. Louis

Jesse James' Hideout Or Civil War Midden?, Steven Meyer, Tim Evers, Ben Ebert

Undergraduate Research Symposium

Whether the infamous outlaw Jesse James (1847-1882) ever lived in Iron County Missouri during his post-Civil War crime spree is a highly debated issue shrouded in legend and myth. A plot of land called “The Hideout” in Southern Iron County is a prime source for these legends to be tested. Archaeologists Benjamin Ebert, Steven Meyer, and Tim Evers will attempt to answer the question “Could Jesse James have stayed at the Hideout?” Iron County is steeped in rich history dating back to the Civil War, and other historic landmarks add credence to the legends
and help push tourism and preservation ...


Leprosy: How It Defined A King, Paul Sanders 2022 University of Missouri, St. Louis

Leprosy: How It Defined A King, Paul Sanders

Undergraduate Research Symposium

This project is looking at King Baldwin IV of Jerusalem and his successes despite contracting leprosy at an early age. There was a general mistrust in Europe against lepers because of what the majority of Christians thought leprosy was caused by. King Baldwin had many military and political victories while dealing with the physical effects of leprosy and the stigma surrounding it at the time.


Asthma In St. Louis: A Crisis Of Equity, Ashley Maempa 2022 University of Missouri, St. Louis

Asthma In St. Louis: A Crisis Of Equity, Ashley Maempa

Undergraduate Research Symposium

Asthma is a common disease that causes airways to become inflamed and swell, which leads to difficulty breathing, wheezing, coughing, and asthma attacks. Asthma can be triggered by things such as dust, pollen, colds, pollutants, and household pests. In St. Louis, asthma is highly prevalent, with both cases and hospitalizations well above state and national averages. The asthma problem also reveals stark health disparities between St. Louis’s white and African American populations, with African American children comprising a disproportionate majority of asthma hospitalizations and emergency department visits. This project is concerned with investigating the underlying causes behind St. Louis ...


Malaria: Existence Perpetuated By A Counterfeit Drug Industry, Nicholas Black 2022 University of Missouri, St. Louis

Malaria: Existence Perpetuated By A Counterfeit Drug Industry, Nicholas Black

Undergraduate Research Symposium

Malaria is a mosquito-borne disease that has plagued society for thousands of years. Malaria is often overlooked from the perspective of wealthier industrialized countries due to prevention efforts largely eliminating malaria from these locations. However, overlooking malaria’s continued global relevance is misinformed to the fact that nearly half the global population lives in regions at risk of malarial transmission. According to the CDC and WHO, such a high number of people at risk has subsequently led to an estimated 241 million cases and over 627 thousand deaths in 2020 alone. The purpose for the present research is to examine ...


Gender Dysphoria: The Widespread "Social" Disease Of The 21st Century, Aria Spencer 2022 University of Missouri, St. Louis

Gender Dysphoria: The Widespread "Social" Disease Of The 21st Century, Aria Spencer

Undergraduate Research Symposium

There has been a supposed increase in the cases of Rapid Onset Gender Dysphoria (ROGD) in the past 10 years. The term ‘ROGD’ is a non medical phrase that has been widely adopted by members of anti transgender groups. This harmful classification has been the baseline for many anti transgender youth legislature that have been introduced in Americans states as recently as February of 2022. Gender dysphoria has been discredited as a ‘social media’ disease, and the fear of having LBGTQ+ people in communities has caused the harm and mistreatment of both the transgender youth and adults in America. Gender ...

Vasily Grossman And Ilya Ehrenburg: Soviet Jews On The Nazis And Soviets, Joshua Heisel 2022 University of Missouri, St. Louis

Vasily Grossman And Ilya Ehrenburg: Soviet Jews On The Nazis And Soviets, Joshua Heisel

Undergraduate Research Symposium

Vasily Grossman and Ilya Ehrenburg were both significantly influential writers in the Soviet Union during and after World War II. Grossman and Ehrenburg were both Jewish war correspondents and witnessed Nazi war crimes. Prosecutors at the Nuremberg Trial used The Hell of Treblinka, written by Grossman, as evidence. Following the war, Joseph Stalin and the Soviet Union began to implement increasingly anti-Semitic policies. Jewish citizens faced discrimination, the Soviet state opposed “dividing the dead” of World War II, and it culminated in the Jewish Doctors Plot in 1953. Both writers covered extensively the Holocaust and how to treat Germany after ...


Putin's Russia: Lineage Of Totalitarianism, Micah Hillier 2022 University of Missouri, St. Louis

Putin's Russia: Lineage Of Totalitarianism, Micah Hillier

Undergraduate Research Symposium

Vladimir Putin is the current president of Russia and has taken many leadership cues from his country’s totalitarian past. Does Putin fit the mold of a classic 20th century totalitarian when one looks at examples like Hitler, Stalin, Mao, or the Kim dynasty? In what ways does Putin exhibit the telltale personality traits of these dictatorships? How does the current Russian administration’s policies, both foreign and domestic, mirror those of other authoritarian and totalitarian regimes?

The presentation will be a panel style discussion where these questions will be discussed and debated with research backed conclusions. Using historical ...
