Annual Awards and Membership Banquet

The Charleston Chapter of Sigma Xi invites you to attend our annual awards and membership banquet on Wednesday, April 23, in the Regimental Commanders' Riverview Room, Coward Hall, The Citadel.

Our speaker, Dr. Paul Nolan, is an associate professor in the Department of Biology at the Citadel and has adjunct professorships with the Graduate Program in Marine Biology and the Graduate Program in Environmental Studies, both at the College of Charleston. His talk is entitled "Applying Evolutionary Theory to Antarctic Conservation."
Talk summary: Animals often "are what they eat," but they also "are" a representation of their life experiences and the environment in which they live. Their outward appearance can both literally and figuratively reflect their physiology, nutrition and overall health. Evidence from a wide variety of taxa supports the hypothesis that an animal's phenotype--the external manifestation of its genes, or what you actually observe--can signal features such as its stress levels on different time scales, its reproductive receptivity, even its developmental history. My previous research has studied the use of that information by individual birds making mate choice decisions, but we can also use it to assess the condition of birds encountered in the wild. Antarctic penguins display a variety of colors in their feathers, feet, and beak. Those colors depend on pigments gained from the environment, and represent a tradeoff between pigment use in signaling vs. use in the immune system. Stressors in the animals' environment should be reflected in their integumentary color, and may also be captured as elevated stress-hormone levels as measured in feather samples. I will describe a new project in which my colleagues and I are examining variation in penguins' stress levels relative to characteristics of their physical and social environment.

A reception commencing at 6:15 pm will begin the evening's festivities. Sweet tea and water in punch bowls with floating lemon wheels as well as unsweetened ice tea in pitchers will be available. Dinner will be served at 7:00 pm with the program following.

The Charleston Chapter of Sigma Xi invites you to attend our annual membership banquet, Thursday, April 19 in the Regimental Commanders' Riverview Room, Coward Hall, The Citadel. Our speaker, Dr. Lou Guillette, is the COEE Endowed Chair in Marine Genomics . His CV is also available.

The title of his talk is "Scrambled Eggs - Can Wildlife Provide Clues about Birth Defects in Humans" Abstract: Many chemicals introduced into the environment by humans adversely affect embryonic development of animals, including humans. It has been hypothesized that many developmental alterations are due to the endocrine disruptive effects of various contaminants, as the endocrine system exhibits an organizational effect on the developing embryo. An understanding of the developmental consequences of endocrine disruption in wildlife has led to new indicators of exposure and a better understanding of the most sensitive life stages as well as the consequences of exposure during these periods for wildlife and humans.

Annual Awards and Membership Banquet

The Charleston Chapter of Sigma Xi invites you to attend our annual membership banquet, Tuesday, April 26 in the Regimental Commanders' Riverview Room, Coward Hall, The Citadel. Our speaker, Dr. Roger Markwald, is director of the Cardiovascular Developmental Biology Center at the Medical University of South Carolina. His talk is entitled "Periostin: an ancient, adhesion gene that may determine how the adult mammalian heart responds to injury."

Talk abstract:
A major question today is "why does the human heart not regenerate when injured"? Why instead, when injured after a heart attack, does a fibrous scar form and not new healthy heart muscle cells? One potential clue may be found in the gene periostin. After birth, periostin rapidly declines and is barely detectable in adult human hearts but, remarkably, its expression is increased 8 to 64-fold if an injury occurs. As the result of an injury to the heart,perostin normally correlates with differentiation into fibroblastic scar tissue rather than new, healthy heart muscle. Our work is attempting to change this outcome in hopes of generating new heart muscle. Genes like periostin are currently important candidate therapeutic targets for promoting fibrogenic wound healing (if activated) or heart regeneration (if silenced), but never both.
