On PBA professors modeling “the life of the mind, the care of the soul and the extension of the hands”
A word from the Provost Faculty at PBA impress. Faculty are receiving research grants, writing biographies, crafting poems, composing music, shaping art, and — of course — creating new knowledge by writing essays and books. What impressed me this year, however, is the repeated theme that faculty engage students. They want students “by their sides” — not “out of their hair.” They bring students alongside them as they practice their academic craft. In these pages you will read about professors who are guiding students in exciting lab research on leukemia cells, guiding students on tours of the Galapagos Islands or biblical Ephesus and guiding students in a lifestyle of reading, writing and scholarship. For our faculty, students are not an annoyance to endure but rather their raison d’être for teaching at PBA. Let me invite you into these pages to read about Dr. Adwoa Nornoo and Dr. Harm Maarsingh, who with other pharmacy colleagues, pursue potentially groundbreaking research thanks to grants from the company Integra Connect. Likewise, meet Dr. Chris Hickey and Dr. Cidya Grant, who are engaging undergraduate students in graduate-level work. Enlightening Minds will introduce you to Dr. Eric Tippin, who comes to us from the University of Cambridge, and who points to the deep rewards wrapped up in literature. You will meet Dr. Thomas Chesnes, who can’t stay out of the mud, especially in the Everglades. While wading around in a swamp at 2
night looking for snakes isn’t my idea of fun, Chesnes and his students can’t wait to get wet. Recently I attended a ceremony honoring the outstanding graduate in each academic school. Besides “mom,” whom did they talk about the most? Professors. My colleagues at PBA are shaping the next generation of Christian leaders, whether the graduate is serving within feet of the Oval Office, walking halls of power on Wall Street, creating new businesses, stooping over lab benches, preaching in prestigious pulpits (or downtown missions), teaching third grade children, bandaging the wounded, or serving the devastated in Haiti. PBA graduates learned about the life of the mind, the care of the soul, and the extension of the hands from their professors, who not only taught it, but modeled it. I am honored to work with them. -E. Randolph Richards, Ph.D., provost and chief academic officer, professor of biblical studies
Dr. Randy Richards has authored or co-authored nearly a dozen books and many scholarly articles. This past semester he published two articles, a book foreword, two book endorsements, finished four articles and co-wrote another (with a student), and had two books translated into Korean and Indonesian. This coming year he plans to finish the page proofs for a new book to be out this summer, another article, and continue working on the Gospel of John in the prestigious Word Biblical Commentary and co-editing the Inscriptions and Papyri volume in the Ancient Literature for New Testament Study series. He is a popular lecturer and speaker, delivering recently the Ellis Lecture at Wheaton College.

“When something would go a little bit off track, I had to critically think how to recover from the problem and proceed on my own. I realize that in the future, if I’m a surgeon, I’m going to be making a lot of unexpected calls, so honestly, this research has empowered me to prepare for a time when I can make those calls in special situations and do it calmly, critically thinking through the process.” - Pre-health student Chloe Brown
Learning lessons in the lab, two undergrads join the battle against cancer
iven the rigorous coursework in Palm Beach Atlantic’s pre-health major, why would students dive into extra projects, spending many hours a week conducting research with their professors? “You have to look at the big picture,” said junior Chloe Brown. “You think: ‘Here are my future goals,’ and you see how everything you’re doing reaches toward those goals.” As Brown and senior Belle Pierre continue reaching toward the goal of becoming medical doctors, in February they traveled to the Florida Undergraduate Research Conference. There they presented a poster describing their research and promising results in attacking human cancer cells using a compound in oregano, an herb commonly used in cooking. Their research began last fall, when they volunteered to join a project led by Dr. Cidya Grant, associate professor of chemistry, and Dr. Christopher Hickey, assistant professor of biology. To fund the research, the two professors had won a Quality Initiative (QI) Grant. For 2019-2020, the University awarded QI grants to 26 projects: 16 faculty projects, six student projects and

But while the project serves to develop the research skills of students, it also becomes a building block in the life and death battle against cancer. Hickey feels a personal stake in the battle, his father having died of leukemia. “You know how much I would love to have one more day with my dad?” He earned a Ph.D. in molecular biology with a leukemia specialty, and afterward completed a research fellowship with the Mitchell Cancer Institute at the University of South Alabama. Trained by their professors, Brown and Pierre grew three lines of cells in the lab: leukemia cells,
and she hopes one day to merge her two interests to become an advocate in medicine. She found the research fascinating, but also challenging, recalling some long hours and even some tears when things went wrong. “I was hit with failure several times in the lab,” said Pierre, “and learning how to deal with that has really allowed me to grow.” The project has boosted her confidence, she said. “There will be times in the medical field when you’ll have to think on your feet, and this experience has really helped me see myself in the future that way.” Brown also found the research project challenging. “Dr. Hickey expects a lot out of you” in the lab, she said, “but he graciously explains things to you and if you come to him he’s willing to help you and mentor you and encourage you.” Brown is from Lincolnton, North Carolina. She said that research experience will help students get accepted into med school, because medical schools want to see well-rounded students having interests beyond their coursework. And long-term, she said, “me doing research is important so that when I am a doctor I’ll be able to understand research and how it can be applicable to clinical use.” Meanwhile, said Brown, “I’ve learned a lot of lessons through research. When something would go a little bit off track, I had to critically think how to recover from the problem and proceed on my own. I realize that in the future, if I’m a surgeon, I’m going to be making a lot of unexpected calls, so honestly, this research has empowered me to prepare for a time when I can make those calls in special situations and do it calmly, critically thinking through the process.” Hickey and Grant found their student team to be “keen and eager to learn.” With those traits, said Grant, Hickey, above, earned a Ph.D. in molecular biology their professors “can mold them” into becoming the with a leukemia specialty. scientists God would have them be. After working on the project all during the fall semester, over the Christmas break the team learned breast cancer cells and non-cancerous cells.

“I am totally into supporting anything with research, with outcomes, where we can change patients’ lives.” -Raj Mantena, Integra Connect founder & chairman
Pharmacist /entrepreneur boosts Gregory School of Pharmacy research
bout 30 years ago, young Raj Mantena came to the U.S. seeking to represent the generic drug manufacturer owned by his family in India. “And the person whom I met to do business with said I was too young for him to talk to,” recalled Mantena. “He said I should go back to school.” So Mantena did go back to school, earning a degree in industrial pharmacy at the University of Maryland. He then took his pharmaceutical family background, poured in his industrial pharmacy education and stirred the mix using an entrepreneurial knack for collaborating and timing. After two years of that recipe Mantena had developed a company and sold it for $25 million, “which was pretty
amazing for a young kid,” he said. Since then, he and his partners have started six companies, breaking new ground in healthcare data analytics and cancer treatment. His company Integra Connect now donates more than $2 million to cancer research annually. And he has made a $500,000 commitment to fund research and scholarship at the Lloyd L. Gregory School of Pharmacy over five years. Mantena became acquainted with Palm Beach Atlantic when his daughter, Netra, was looking for a school with a pharmacy program. She visited three area schools, he said, and at PBA, “she loved the campus; she loved the people.” She’s now in her fourth year here, on track to become a pharmacist. As his daughter enjoyed the PBA experience, Mantena learned more
about the school, and Gregory Dean Dr. Jeffrey Lewis brought him into the Gregory Leadership Council. “I can relate to the school’s mission and vision,” Mantena said. “PBA is like a family.” As he attended council meetings and made more PBA connections, he appreciated “the diversity in terms of where people come from, with different ideas to enhance the mission of the school, and to really lay out an amazing career for the students who are graduating.” Mantena responded enthusiastically when Lewis approached him about funding faculty research. “I am totally into supporting anything with research, with outcomes where we can change patients’ lives,” Mantena said.
“He’s incredibly philanthropic,” said Lewis. “Because of the generosity of Integra Connect, a great array of projects has been launched here.” The Gregory School established a committee that reviews faculty research proposals and awards grants from the Integra Connect funding. Ten grants have been awarded thus far, supporting a variety of research projects ranging from the efficacy of new, nonopioid painkillers to integrating clinical services at community pharmacies. Those projects include:
Using emu oil to expand a drug’s use Dr. Adwoa Nornoo, associate professor of pharmaceutical sciences, leads a project investigating the use of oil derived from the emu, the large, flightless bird native to Australia. She seeks to prove that the oil can be an effective “enhancer” to allow the drug budesonide to be delivered through the skin, using a patch. Budesonide is used to treat disorders of the gastrointestinal tract and the lungs, and it has very low side effects, compared to other drugs on the market, Nornoo said. Patients now swallow the drug, “but if we could get the drug in the blood, maybe we could use it to treat other types of diseases.” Emu oil already has some medical uses, but Nornoo’s study is the first to examine it as a penetration enhancer for drugs. The early results of her research are quite encouraging, she said.
About midnight, he was making slides for his class, “when it was almost like the Lord prompted me: You should check whether vitamin D has an anti-allergic effect on lung tissue.” So Maarsingh studied the vitamin D literature and saw that the vitamin had shown positive, stabilizing effects in other diseases, but no one had studied whether it might prevent asthma attacks. “We want to treat diseases,” he said, “but how much better if we can prevent diseases from happening.” An asthma attack happens when an allergen causes airways in the lungs to constrict. Maarsingh developed a model to mimic an asthma attack and study it under the microscope as it happens. He took thin slices of lung tissue from guinea pigs and fixed them under the microscope in a buffer solution. He then introduced an allergen in small steps, monitoring the results with a video camera connected to the microscope.
Next, Maarsingh and his student assistants repeated the steps after introducing vitamin D before introducing the allergen. He found that vitamin D reduced the sensitivity to the allergen 250-fold. Vitamin D used in this way “could help a lot of people,” he said, “because if you decrease the sensitivity toward the allergen, we may protect the patient.” And presently, allergic asthma afflicts millions of people worldwide. Having shown that vitamin D protects airways against an allergen, Maarsingh will continue his research to learn how it does this. Meanwhile, he recently showed a pharmacy class his video of unprotected airways constricting. “When people have asthma attacks,” he told the students, “this is what it looks like.” A collective gasp went up from the students as they watched an airway slowly close up. “Yes,” said Maarsingh. “That’s why your job is so important.”
Vitamin D “epiphany” for asthma treatment Dr. Harm Maarsingh, associate professor of pharmaceutical sciences, recalled preparing a class lecture on a kidney disease treatment that involved vitamin D.

We inhabit a world of Disquieted Souls, living lives of restless discontent. They are the souls who over-analyze, over-worry, over-perform, and over-protect. They are the souls running as fast as they can, trying to escape their own unhappiness. Perfectionistic extremes and addictive tendencies are their regular companions. Peace, stability and harmony are not. We can do better than incessant disquiet. We can know more balance and tranquility, even in the midst of life’s demands. We can trace through life’s high and low tides, while remaining increasingly stable in their midst. We can increasingly live within the disharmony of life without being enslaved to that disharmony. Through the process of discovery and deliverance, we can learn — and relearn — to quiet our souls.
In today’s intellectual climate, naturalism is a dominant worldview, according to which there is no God, only the physical world exists and the natural sciences are our best guide to reality. Some forms of naturalism are very narrow (eliminating consciousness, values and so on) while other forms are broader (admitting consciousness and more). This collection begins with an overview of naturalism and what is natural by a prominent naturalist. Thirteen subsequent chapters offer a critique of naturalism, in both its narrow and broad forms, and advance a positive case for theism in light of the existence of consciousness, knowledge and rationality, human dignity, values, psychology and aesthetics. The Naturalness of Belief also explores the existential and cultural implications of theism and naturalism.

Dr. Paul Copan, Dr. Wes Jamison. What Would Jesus REALLY Eat?: The Biblical Case for Eating Meat. Toronto, Canada: Castle Quay, 2019.
Is the God of the Old Testament nothing but a bully, a murderer and an oppressor? Many today — even within the church — seem to think so. How are Christians to respond to such accusations? And how are we to reconcile the seemingly disconnected natures of God portrayed in the two testaments? In this timely and readable book, now translated into Romanian, apologist Paul Copan takes on some of the most vexing accusations of our time, including: God is arrogant and jealous; God punishes people too harshly; God is guilty of ethnic cleansing; God oppresses women; God endorses slavery; Christianity causes violence. Copan not only answers the critics; he also shows how to read both the Old and New Testaments faithfully, seeing an unchanging, righteous, and loving God in both.
Until relatively recently, vegetarianism was a dietary alternative for Christians — a mere option or perhaps, for some, a conviction. But the biblical tradition recognized that a plant-based diet isn’t more spiritual or moral than eating meat. Meat-eating is legitimate for humans; it is not prohibited and is even blessed by God. Increasingly, secular organizations and activists have been pressuring Christians to turn their freedom into bondage and to adopt false commandments based on activist convictions. Voices from inside the church have joined the chorus. This group of scholars applied their expertise in biblical studies, theology, philosophy, resource management, communication and generational pig farming to write an accessible response for Christians who rightly believe that meat-eating is a gift from God.

Limited Government and the Death of God: The Rise and Fall of Freedom is the third of three volumes comprising a comprehensive study of freedom and American society. Volume III explores the historical rise of the free society in the West and especially its relation to the religious worldview that inspired the quest for individual freedom. It further examines the threats to the free society posed not only by the modern ideological movements but related paradigms such as Progressivism, Postmodernism, and Multiculturalism. Volume I, Freedom and Political Order, examines the meaning of freedom and the legal and political dimensions of American liberal democracy. Volume II, Freedom and Economic Order, examines the relation of individual freedom to the economic arrangements of society. It explores both the theory and practice of the competing paradigms of capitalism and socialism and the moral frameworks — justice and social justice — correlative to them.

Candid Camera under water Watch video: Go.pba.edu/marinelife
A variety of curious ocean dwellers were caught on underwater cameras planted off Palm Beach by Palm Beach Atlantic marine biology students Amberlyn Stuart (left) and Sierra King. Working with Dr. Angela Witmer, the students built rigs to mount cameras and a container of fish bait and sunk them 50 to 250 meters from shore. Attracted by the bait, the fish starred in video that became part of a project mapping marine life. Through their research, Witmer and her students were establishing a baseline so that they can determine how long it takes the environment to recover when there’s a hurricane or beach re-nourishment project. Their findings will offer insight into how long people should wait after such a disturbance before they resume fishing and other water-based recreation activities.
