New medical school student finds undergraduate research experience invaluable

New medical school student finds undergraduate research experience invaluable

Jose Castellanos is hitting the books this summer, trading fun and sun for round-the-clock studying. Fueled by a desire to help others, the 2015 biology graduate is already applying the skills he learned at Saint Mary’s in a summer program at the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine. Castellanos will do his first year of medical school at the Urbana-Champaign campus and then his second through fourth at the Peoria campus. His goal: to graduate from medical school in four years and become a surgeon. “I’m confident,” he said. “I can see how I’m performing in comparison to other students who went to bigger universities. I’ve developed good study skills and that has translated well into the medical school pace,” he said. Castellanos did extensive lab research in his Saint Mary’s undergraduate program, and presented those findings publicly. And that experience already gives him an advantage. “I’m finding that’s not something everyone does during their undergraduate years,” he said. “Very few students from bigger schools were able to do research alongside someone with their Ph.D. If they did research, it was with another student. “For me, that’s a big deal, to be able to work with professors who teach you their techniques,” he said. “I enjoyed applying the things we learned in the classroom, seeing how things actually work.” Castellanos’ senior project involved the effect of over-expression of TBX2 in Mus musculus epidermal cells and migration. “We know this gene has been linked to melanoma, a very invasive type of skin cancer,” he said. “There are a lot of factors that can contribute to the cancer. We...
GIS students to help find missing Minnesota fort

GIS students to help find missing Minnesota fort

WINONA, Minn. — Today’s geospatial technology will soon be applied in the hunt for a 300-year-old historically significant site in Minnesota. The Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota M.S. in Geographic Information Science (GIS) program has been awarded a Minnesota Historical and Cultural Heritage Grant in the amount of $8,800. The Minnesota Historical Society awarded the grant as part of efforts to find the historical location of Fort L’Huillier, believed to be located near Mankato, Minn. Fort L’Huillier was founded by Pierre-Charles Le Sueur around 1700. Le Sueur had begun mining along the Blue Earth River, only to discover what he thought was copper ore was “blue” clay. When Le Sueur returned to the fort, he found it attacked and abandoned with no sign of the 20 original settlers. As the years passed, the location of the fort was lost. Numerous attempts to locate the fort, between 1835 to 1987, have been unsuccessful. The site is considered historically significant because this French Contact Phase location is important in the early history of Minnesota and the Upper Minnesota Valley. Last summer, Saint Mary’s students in the Advanced Modeling and Analysis GIS class, researched the fort’s location for about a week. The project fit perfectly with the course objectives: to explore “real-world” modeling scenarios with practical and applied scholarship. This summer, as part of the MHS grant, students will begin validating and expanding upon previous research, examining historical oral accounts and written documents for spatial clues. “We plan to bring some newer technology to this project,” said John Ebert, assistant professor and GIS program director. “We will go through historic documents to...
Music lover discovers English is his forte

Music lover discovers English is his forte

Paul Schmitt advises incoming college students to “leave yourselves open to experiences.” The jazz musician and music aficionado discovered he had a profound interest in writing and studying literature. For a little extra spending money, he’s mapping wetlands with the GeoSpatial Services at Saint Mary’s. And he’s not too shabby at ceramics. “You don’t need to have your life mapped out,” he said. “It became evident right away that I could be involved with everything I wanted to at Saint Mary’s, and my interests were very broad. This was the place where I could explore my passions, even if it wasn’t for my profession.” The self-proclaimed “band geek” from Sebeka, Minn., originally thought music was his forte. With blue-collar working parents, Schmitt said he was raised to be practical. His parents encouraged him to think about his potential profession, and not just about getting a degree. Schmitt thought that the music industry program would provide him with the specialized training and job outlets he would need. Through performing with the jazz band and the Oldie Moldie All-Star singing group, taking leadership roles in the music fraternity Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia, and getting on stage for the school’s music variety shows, Schmitt became immersed in the music scene. And although he credits the strength of the music program, he came to realize that English, and in particular literature and writing, was his true calling. Always pragmatic, Schmitt first dabbled in public relations and copywriting, working for the Cardinal student newspaper as well as interning with an advertising agency in La Crosse, Wis. “(English Department faculty member) Dr. Carolyn Ayers has...
