Greetings from the Chancellor FSU Family and Friends, It is my pleasure to present the 2013 Annual Report on Sponsored Research at Fayetteville State University. By adding the Research Office to the Office of Sponsored Research and Programs (OSRP), Fayetteville State University has entered a new era of funded research and an expansion of our grant-driven services. The opening of the Science and Technology building in winter 2013 brought national attention to FSU, and increased the level of respect for FSU as a research institution. This state-of-the-art structure exemplifies our move into the realm of advanced research by combining the practicality of an energy efficient LEED Silver Certified building, with the innovation of a 64,000 square foot high tech, lab-intensive building that brings all elements of STEM-related instruction and research under one roof to promote intellectual collaboration. The expansion of our research endeavors in partnership with business and the military is being spearheaded by the Center for Defense and Homeland Security, which is also located in the Science and Technology building.
The Research Office and OSRP, under the leadership of Dr. Daryush Ila, th undergirding FSUâ€™s growth and efficiency to secure funding for research and p of re sources to promote the Universityâ€™s mission through the creativity, pa journey filled with great expectations and anticipation, and with our outstandin our place as one of the premier academic institutions of this nation.

In order to keep pace with the workforce demands of emerging technologies to forecast and respond to the mitigation and recovery of natural and man-made catastrophic disasters, the CDHS scholars have joined forces with academic and industry partners to enhance and develop programs and capabilities in scientific and engineering disciplines critical to the national security functions of the military. These collaborations are not only promoting research and technological innovations; they are also integral in establishing robust mentoring research opportunities at FSU for students in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and/or Mathematics (STEM) in preparation for jobs in the DoD and Homeland Security, as well as in the Emergency Management and Intelligence fields. As CDHS Scholars share joint responsibilities in research, program design, and classroom instruction, they are uniquely qualified to address our national security needs of the present, and form a career pipeline to the students who will address those needs in the future.
Southeastern North Carolina Regional Microanalytical and Imaging Consortium (SENCR-MIC) PAGE
SENCR-MIC is a State–of–the-Art Microimaging and Analysis Center headed by Dr, Zhiping Luo. During the 2012-2013 Academic Year
14 undergraduate students were trained on the SEM/EPMA, 5 conducted research. 3 courses supported Forensic Microscopy, Seminar in Chemical Literature, and Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. 24 research papers, all affiliated with FSU, were published in peer-reviewed journals, including high-rank journals of Nano Letters and Advanced Materials. 16 grants or contracts were submitted, and 8 of them have been awarded, in total $152,046 funded (including the ARO grant remaining fund upon no-cost extension). The 2012 Jacquet-Lucas Award from the International Metallographic Society and ASM International was presented to the Dr. Luo on October 9, 2012. SENCR-MIC served the community for research and professional service. Research collaborations were established (University of Texas at Austin, Texas A&M University, Lamar University, Texas A&M University at Kingsville, Texas Biochemicals, Inc., and Texas State University - San Marcos). Outreach at SENCR-MIC included Inner Mongolia Normal University, China.
Biopsychology Laboratory Can a human learn from a robot in the same way we learn from other humans? FSU’s Biopsychology Laboratory is devoted to the study of human cognitive functions. Its most recent projects examine the interaction between humans and robots, and their effects on human cognitive capacities. With the support of the NSF and through collaborations with the Department of Mathematics and Computer Sciences, our graduate students are being trained in cutting-edge Cognitive Sciences. Dr. Daniel Montoya, Associate Professor of Psychology, Dr. Daniel Montoya serves as Director of the FSU Biopsychology Laboratory. Human-Robotic Interactions: Reports on the mirror neuron system indicate that humans are able to discern the goal of motor actions enacted by humans even when action flow is incomplete. Theoretically, this effect is only observable when humans see other humans performing tasks. If true, participants should have a more difficult time accurately replicating motor tasks demonstrated by a robot rather than a human. A. Baker-Oglesbee (Master‘s Thesis) showed human subjects a video of a person or a robotic hand solving a tangram puzzle. Subjects were then asked to replicate the shapes. Results showed no significant differences in the type of instruction. So, humans are able to learn complex motor tasks from viewing either a human or a robot performing it. Further questions were asked, about the mirror neuron system and its involvement. We focused on the electroencephalographic analysis (EEG) of the Mu Rhythm (8-13 Hz). J. Pokora (Master’s Thesis), measured Mu Rhythm in healthy adults as they watched a video of human and non-human agents grasping an object, attempting to determine what levels of human-likeness was necessary to desynchronize the Mu Rhythm. Participants were exposed to a baseline condition followed by four conditions: the grasping of an object with a human hand, a plastic hand, a robotic hand, and a metallic grasping rod. Results suggest that anthropomorphic robots activate the mirror neuron system provided and that their movements resemble that of human anatomy. Other Projects Currently research is being carried out in the Biopsychology Lab in the following areas: Reproductive messages in Argentinean and Swedish Folk music from the beginning of 20th Century, carried out by I. Christensson (undergraduate); A comparison of the levels of relaxation when instruction is given by a human or a robot, by J. Hafner (undergraduate); and Emotional impairments in Cerebrospinal Fluid leakage patients, by S. Reid-Harriman (graduate) .
FSU Aquatics Laboratory Research Area: Human Food Additives Effecting Behavior
The Aquatic Research Laboratory at Fayetteville State University, under the direction of Dr. Stephen Salek, specializes in both marine and freshwater research. It maintains over 300 gallons of salt and freshwater aquariums used for research, teaching and community outreach. The yellowhead jawfish (opistognatus aurifrons) is a small burrowing marine fish. It is an excellent model for testing the effect of chemicals on social behavior because of its unique burrowing and intraspecific behaviors. Todayâ€™s foods are loaded with artificial dyes that are thought to be psychoactive compounds and may aggravate ADHD in children. Small groups of jawfish were allowed to establish burrows in captive aquariums and their baseline social behaviors were quantified for 3 days post burrowing. During this time they were fed a diet of Mysis shrimp. Subsequently, Mysis shrimp were soaked in red dye derived from red Skittles and fed to the fish. Social behaviors were observed an 1 to 1-1/2 hours before feeding and about 1/2 hour after feeding. Fighting increased in fish that had been fed red dye. Results demonstrate the effects of red dye on social behavior. Our findings support the idea that dyes consumed by children may alter their social interactions.
Dr. Daryush Ila In the spring of 2012, a team of students from FSUâ€™s School of Business and Economics won 1st place in a national competition for a business plan presentation. The business plan was for a thermoelectric device that attaches to cell phones. The device generates electricity from body heat. It attaches to the back of the phone and, when the person holds the phone, it immediately charges the phone.
The invention is the creation of Dr. Daryush Ila. Technically, it is a high efficiency thermo electric device comprising a multi nanolayer structure of alternating insulator and insulator/metal material that is irradiated across the plane of the layer structure with ionizing radiation. The ionizing radiation produces nanocrystals in the layered structure that increase the electrical conductivity and decrease the thermal conductivity thereby increasing the thermoelectric figure of merit. Future applications for use of the device are to broaden its capabilities, such as creating electricity not only to operate small appliances, but also to potentially run small vehicles.
Dr. Stephen Salek In winter 2013, FSU assistant professor of biology Dr. Stephen SALEK used a handmade snow gun to make 3-to-5 inches of snow. His snow gun, which is made out of a pressure washer and an air compressor, has a small nozzle that shoots a fine mist and two larger nozzles that shoot a coarser mist. Dr. SALEK explained that when it comes out under pressure, the water expands and that makes it freeze. The bigger droplets fall on the smaller ones and that is what makes it snow." The snow gun, covered a patch of ground about 30 feet by 30 feet. SALEK first started making snow for his daughter and neighborhood children in his backyard where the children could sled. He wanted to share a similar experience with FSU students and faculty. Students on their way to class were amazed that it looked and felt like snow coming from the clouds. SALEK invited physics professors to bring their classes to the snow patch to learn about snowmaking.
Dr. Subir Nagdas
The Role of Bovine Sperm Acrosomal Membrane-Matrix Complex in Fertilization Dr. Subir Nagdas is a biochemist/molecular biologist with expertise in reproductive biology and mammalian fertilization. The mammalian sperm acrosome is an organelle which contains a variety of hydrolases utilized to penetrate egg investments, key controls in fertilization. Our understanding of both the assembly and functions of protein constituents of the outer acrosomal membrane-matrix complex (OMC) is limited. The goals of the current research are to identify the proteins of the outer acrosomal membrane and to define the role of OMC polypeptides in the membrane fusion and the release of hydrolases during the acrosome reaction. Understanding these issues could contribute to improved strategies for maintaining acrosomal integrity in stored spermatozoa, promoting the acrosome reaction, and improving the fertilizing capacity of functionally impaired spermatozoa. In the dairy industry, artificial inseminations are done with frozen-thawed semen. It is assumed that the thawing rate is influenced by several factors of the cryopreservation procedure such as type extender, glycerol concentration, freezing rate and packaging methods.
Dr. Abdelmajid Kassem Soybean seeds are rich in isoflavones, protein, oil, and other beneficial compounds for humansâ€™ consumption and animal feed. Dr. Abdelmajid Kassem sought to identify and map quantitative trait loci (QTL) for seed isoflavones, protein, and oil content, yield, and yield components in soybean using three recombinant inbred line (RIL) populations derived from elite soybean cultivars. The project was funded to Dr. Kassem, $514,695, by the Department of Defense (DoD). Dr. Kassem, along with his Postdoctoral Fellow and his undergraduate and graduate students, published two high quality scientific articles from these projects. They also presented their research findings at the prestigious International Plant and Animal Genome Conferences in 2012 and 2013. The grant promoted research training of underrepresented students at FSU and provided two scholarships for 2 graduate students. It also fully equipped Dr. Kassemâ€™s Lab (Plant Genomics and Biotechnology Lab) with state-of-the art equipment to conduct these research projects.
Dr. Shubo Han Dr. Shubo Han is a Professor of Analytical Chemistry in the Department of Chemistry and Physics. He serves as the Coordinator of the FSU "3+2" Engineering and Science Dual Degree Programs and is a Co-PI of the Southeastern North Carolina Regional Microanalytical and Imaging Consortium. Dr. Han's research interests include: molecular basis of flavonoids inhibiting protein aggregation related to neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinsonâ€™s and Alzheimerâ€™s disease and fabrication and characterization of nanomaterials for the development of electrochemical and optical biosensors. He has published more than 30 peer-reviewed articles, is co-owner of one patent, and has mentored more than 25 undergraduate and graduate research students.
More than half of the research students were military-affiliated.
Dr. Cevdet Akbay Research Interests for Dr. Cevdet Akbay include: 1) synthesizing, characterization, utilization of novel monomeric and polymeric chiral, and achiral surfactants and their application as pseudostationary phases for enantioseparation of chiral and achiral molecules (e.g., drugs, environmentally important molecules, proteins, etc.); 2) developing methods for real life experiments, e.g., quantification of chemicals in body fluids and in the environment (PAHs, PCBs, explosive residuals); 3) investigating partitioning mechanisms between pseudo-stationary phases and analytes using the linear salvation energy relationships (LSER) model; 4) separating carbon nanotubes (CNTs) using both CE and high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC); and 5) using CNTs as pseudostationary phases in CE. One of his major goals is to involve students (undergraduate & graduate) in hands-on research, using state-of-the-art analytical instruments (e.g., CE, HPLC, gas chromatography, fluorescence, ultraviolet, infrared spectrometry, densitometry, and surface tensiometry, etc.). Because of his guidance and exposure to advanced research, his students have co-authored numerous publications in peer-authored journals and presented at both national and international conferences.
Dr. Maurice Mongkuo
Dr. Maurice Mongkuo is a Professor of Public Administration at Fayetteville State University. He teaches courses in research design and quantitative methods. These courses are aimed at providing students with the requisite skills in developing and implementing sound research proposals. Each student is expected to select a single major public policy problem area published in a recent (i.e., within the last two months) newspaper article, magazine or newspaper editorial, and develop a research proposal to systematically study the problem. An integral part of the course requirements is for each student to participate in a formal training on the ethics of the use of human subjects in research conducted. All the proposals developed by the students must be submitted to the OSRP for review and approval before the student can proceed with conducting the research. Students who complete the proposal-writing course are encouraged to enroll in the Advanced Research Seminar course. In this course, the students are given an opportunity to implement their research proposal. The students, under the close supervision of Dr. Mongkuo, assume the role of Principal Investigator (PI) and take the lead in actually conducting the proposed study by collecting, compiling, analyzing, and interpreting their data, as well as writing their research report and formally presenting their research findings as a panel to a live audience. Upon successful completion of these activities, the students are also encouraged to submit their research paper to a professional journal for peer-review and publication.
Dr. Eid Haddad
Prior to FSU, Dr. Haddad joined ImmunoBio Inc. (IBI) as its Senior Research Scientist in February 2006. In 2008, Dr. Haddad became the vice president of research and development at IBI. Dr. Haddad was also a visiting scientist at North Carolina State University. During his tenure at IBI and NCSU, Dr. Haddad conducted research on the application of a novel vaccine technology toward the development of viral and bacterial vaccines. His research focused on the applicability of a novel vaccine technology towards the development of a vaccine against human influenza. He also collaborated with scientists at UTMB and UTA/Texas on similar projects involving human respiratory syncytial virus and adenovirus. Dr. Haddad held several positions with the most recent being Senior Manager, Global Product Development, at Embrex Inc. a NC biotechnology company (currently Zoetis, Inc.). He worked on the development of novel vaccines against the Avian Infectious bursal disease (IBD) and Avian Newcastle disease (ND) viruses using the company patented antigen-antibody complex vaccine technology. As lead investigator he developed two viral vaccines that were licensed in the USA of which one was also licensed in several other countries. Dr. Haddad also conducted research on a technology application for several other avian viruses including the development of a multi-virus vaccine.
Dr. Shirley Chao The research of Dr. Shirley Chao primarily focuses on understanding how chemicals adversely impact our health and the environment. She has worked on a variety of chemicals, specifically pesticides, metals, and industrial chemicals.

Bioremediation strategies to clean up pesticides and industrial chemicals in the environment 2. Pest management strategies using natural products such as hemp 3. Learning strategies using science activities and early exposure to books to improve literacy success and interest in the sciences in young children.
Dr. Theodore Kaniuka
The research interests of Dr. Theodore Kaniuka focuses on school reform, in particular Early College High Schools in the State of North Carolina. He has made several national and international presentations and coauthored papers and presentations with colleagues &students. In 2010, Dr. Kaniuka & M. Vickers, (doctoral candidate) published a paper on Cross Creek Early College which presented findings on student performance, leadership systems, & student perspectives on faculty & student interactions. Currently Ms. Vickers is completing students, an extension of work Dr. Kaniuka completed as part of a grant funded project form the North Carolina New Schools project. Recently, Dr. Mizzelle, a former student of Dr. Kaniuka, coauthored a paper based on Dr. Mizzelleâ€™s dissertation, which was presented at a state conference. Current students of Dr. Kaniuka are completing research on the effectiveness of district developed professional development, if Professional Learning Communities (PLC) offer a way to increase the retention of beginning teachers, & an examination of the culture in successful alternative high schools here in North Carolina. Dr. Kaniuka worked with a team of MSA students has they conducted a study of Pauline Jones Elementary School in Cumberland County to understand the perspectives of staff and administration of the critical success factors
Dr. Sambit Bhattacharya Dr. Sambit Bhattacharya is currently working on two projects which have synergies. In one project he is creating autonomous methods for robots to explore and map indoor and outdoor spaces. His work addresses specific types of sensor and locomotion capabilities found in a humanoid robot and a quadrotor robot He is interested in using visual data captured on board through cameras to create detailed maps of environments. These maps may be further used for location recognition from visual data and search for specific areas and/or objects. In his other project he is applying machine learning algorithms to analyze data from moving objects, for example vehicles, which create traces of GPS data over time. This application is useful in domains like geospatial intelligence where analysts need to understand patterns of events taking place at different locations around the world. The analyst gathers intelligence from large data sets which rapidly grow over time so computational analysis is most often the preferred solution. He is also investigating methods of automatically identifying anomalous patterns i.e. movements that deviate from normal movement patterns around certain types of landmarks, e.g. public buildings like airports.
