The news media surround Br. Guy Consolmagno, S.J., Vatican astronomer and special guest speaker at the Threshold Series presentation in conjunction with the open house celebrating the completion of the Sis and Herman Dupré Science Pavilion on March 11. Br. Guy raved, “It’s a remarkable place. I am stunned by how beautiful it is and how great the facilities are. It really shows the commitment of the college to the teachings of science. It’s the sort of place where you can not only learn the science, but you can explore the Catholic aspect of it, questions of why are we doing the science.”

Dear Friends,

T

his is a wonderful time of year! The trees started to bloom this week and the tulips are showing their beautiful colors. It has been a long winter but one that was very productive and successful for our students and our faculty. In December we saw the successful completion of the renovation of the West Building of the Sis and Herman Dupré Science Pavilion. The faculty began to move into their offices the day after Christmas and the classrooms and labs were ready when the students returned in January for spring semester. This beautiful building is making a difference and I thank all of you who have been a part of making the renovation a reality. In March I participated in a recruiting effort with our admission staff in Maryland and was so pleased in talking to prospective science majors when family after family told me that Saint Vincent was one of their top choices. Each family that I spoke to that afternoon told me that they had visited campus earlier in the year and the Dupré Science Pavilion was one of the reasons Saint Vincent was on their final list of schools to attend. In this issue of the Boyer Bulletin we feature three of our students and the interesting paths that they have traveled recently. We learn about senior chemistry major Sean Murphy and his work with the new scanning electron microscope, acquired last spring, in conducting an analysis of an 18th-century oil painting in Alfred Hall. Benjamin Delle Donne, a senior environmental science major, is highlighted for his recent visit to Harrisburg, Pa., where he represented Saint Vincent College at Undergraduate Research Day at the Capitol. We hear of the busy spring that senior biology major Meredith McGuire has had in determining what graduate school will be next on her life path. A new program begins this fall, the doctor in nurse anesthesia practice, a collaborative that we are offering with our partner Excela Health. We also spotlight Dr. James Barnett, former chair of our biology department and current chair of our pre-professional health committee, who has recently announced that he will be entering gradual retirement. Please do read these stories as well as the announcement of our second class of emerging research scholars, the award given to two of our biology students for their poster at the regional Tri-Beta Conference and a new National Science Foundation award to a team of faculty led by Dr. Jen Koehl, Dr. James Kellam and Br. Albert Gahr, O.S.B., from our biology department. It has been a busy and exciting year! Lastly, I would like to mention to you one important upcoming date. On Friday, June 14, at 4 p.m. we will dedicate the Sis and Herman Dupré Science Pavilion. Dr. Herbert W. Boyer, C’58, D’81, will be our special guest speaker that day and will give a talk on “The Next 50 Years.” I hope that you will be able to attend.

Excela Health, SVC Announce Doctoral Program in Nurse Anesthesia

E

xcela Health School of Anesthesia and Saint Vincent College jointly announced the initiation of a new professional graduate education doctoral completion program that will award the Doctor of Nurse Anesthesia Practice (DNAP) beginning in the fall of 2013. The new program, one of only a handful in the United States to accommodate the needs of working nurse anesthetists, will prepare Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) within Excela Health and its affiliates as well as those at other health care facilities nationwide to earn a DNAP and become leaders in this rapidly developing field of medicine. “Excela Health is pleased and proud to add a new dimension to its graduate educational programs for clinicians,” said Carol J. Fox, M.D., interim chief medical officer at Excela Health. “The DNAP program graduates will provide a complement to our existing family medicine residency graduates as we strive to provide highly trained clinicians who will improve the health and well-being of every life they touch in our community and beyond.” Saint Vincent College’s traditional commitment to providing a high-quality educational experience is being extended to this new program. “Our goals are to develop motivational leaders who are ready to meet the challenges needed to advance anesthesia practice, to develop CRNAs with superior levels of knowledge in anesthesia theory and practice and to educate CRNAs who are proficient in evidence-based practice and lead

Dr. James Barnett Remains Committed to Teaching by D O N O R L A N D O

hen Dr. James Barnett joined the faculty to teach biology at Saint Vincent College in the fall of 1985, the primary attraction was the opportunity to teach. Now, 28 years and thousands of students later, he remains clearly focused on teaching. “I truly have had the opportunity to teach,” Barnett commented. “I enjoy that the most! I have worked closely with students in a number of roles – in the classroom, as a senior research mentor, as an adviser and as chair of the Pre-professional Health Committee. There are many ways to teach both inside and outside the classroom, both personal and educational.” Barnett has supervised more than 100 senior research projects over the years, though he hasn’t done any since he began teaching in the nurse anesthesia graduate program six years ago. He has also chaired the committee that advises and guides students seeking admission to medical and other health profession schools. “The Pre-professional Health Committee is something I have enjoyed in recent years. Earlier, I served as chair of the biology department. The opportunity to do different things at different times has kept my work interesting.” During his long career, Barnett has taught introductory biology for science majors and non-majors, exercise and sports physiology, mammalian physiology, and for the graduate program, advanced anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology. While he admits that some students have stood out over the years, he hesitates to identify them because there are so many. “A number have gone on to health professional schools and have

kept in contact with me, which I greatly appreciate,” he added. “Their success is in part attributable to what they brought to the College – the values their parents taught them, their beliefs, work ethic and interest in science. We contribute to their preparation and they move on. I hesitate to take any credit for their success.” Barnett said that one of the fundamental things that has changed is that he used to teach by example but now overtly teaches students how to think. “When I work through a problem, I don’t do it as an example. I think out loud and share what is going through my mind as I solve the problem. I spend time explaining how to think about science.” Barnett praised his colleagues in the Boyer School and commented that the environment in which he worked has always been positive due to the people he worked with. “The faculty is great. We have a very collegial, respectful, open department which has made it wonderful to work here. The new Sis and Herman Dupré Science Pavilion has enhanced the physical environment. The facilities enable us to do some things better and to do new things. However, the people are the most important dimension of our school.” In the future, Barnett predicts more collaborative learning and student-centered classrooms, rather than teacher-centered classrooms. “I think educational methods will move toward more collaboration,” he added. During the next few years, he plans to begin to transition from full-time to half-time teaching. “I want to devote more time to my wife, Ginny, and our family. And I want to spend more time with my hobbies – building wooden models of 17th- and 18th-century sailing ships, machining historic brass locomotives and back-road bicycling.” A native of Boston, Barnett grew up in San Francisco and earned a bachelor of science and a Ph.D. in animal physiology from the University of California at Davis. He was a National Research Council research associate in NASA’s biomedical research division before he came to Saint Vincent. He is the author of journal articles in various aspects of biomedical research. He has been recognized several times for excellence in teaching by the Pennsylvania Academy for the Profession of Teaching, Council for the Advancement and Support of Education and Saint Vincent College’s Boniface Wimmer Faculty Award.

Boyer School News Meredith McGuire Preparing for Graduate Study in Biology Many Saint Vincent College seniors focus on gaining acceptance to graduate or professional school after they complete their undergraduate education. But for Meredith McGuire, the process of applying, interviewing and deciding on graduate school has been multiplied nearly a dozen times!

Saint Vincent College senior biology major Meredith McGuire prepares for graduate study in cellular and molecular biology in the digital imaging laboratory of the Sis and Herman Dupré Science Pavilion.

McGuire, who will graduate with a major in biology with concentration in cell and molecular biology and minors in biotechnology and mathematics, wants to pursue graduate study in cellular and molecular biology. She applied to 11 programs at nine prestigious universities including Case Western Reserve University, University of Pittsburgh, the Cleveland Clinic Lerner Research Institute, University of Texas-Southwestern, Baylor College of Medicine, Yale, Harvard, Johns Hopkins University and Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. After she received offers of interviews with 10 of the programs and was offered admission to six and fellowships by three, she has decided to attend Johns Hopkins in Baltimore. “They have a high level of research, high-impact research and an excellent learning

environment,” she commented. “I am planning to go into biomedical research so my Ph.D. will be in cellular and molecular biology. One day I hope to be part of a team researching a disease and be able to intervene in therapeutics and add to the general body of knowledge in my field. I hope to work in the laboratory of a major research university.” McGuire speaks highly of the education she received at Saint Vincent. “I think Saint Vincent gave me an excellent education in biology,” she said, “in all of the contemporary biological techniques and a firm understanding of the concepts behind them. She is a graduate of St. Joseph Academy in Cleveland and the daughter of Thomas and Rosanne McGuire of Strongsville, Ohio. Environmental Science Major Attends Undergraduate Research Conference Benjamin Delle Donne, left, a senior environmental science major and politics minor at Saint Vincent College from North Huntingdon, participated in the annual Undergraduate Research Conference at the Capitol in Harrisburg on March 19.

Eight Boyer School Students Named Emerging Research Scholars

E

ight top students in Saint Vincent College’s Herbert W. Boyer School of Natural Sciences, Mathematics and Computing have been named Emerging Research Scholars to introduce them to research early in their academic careers and to encourage participation in the College’s Collaborative Learning Program. Dr. Stephen Jodis, dean of the Boyer School, announced the second group of scholars at a program and reception at the Sis and Herman Dupré Science Pavilion Atrium on Feb. 26. “Three of our Boyer School departments – biology, chemistry and computing and information science – are again involved in this exciting initiative,” Jodis explained. “In fall 2011, our Collaborative Learning Program launched a new Emerging Research Scholar program which encourages underclassmen to get involved in scientific research early in their careers as an incentive for continuing on in their science majors. Research scholars are recognized by their departments as leaders in their class and will be given opportunities to work one-on-one with faculty members, helping them with their research. The Emerging Research Scholar initiative gives students an opportunity to build strong relationships with departmental faculty.” The program is administered by Dr. Mandy Raab, director of the biotechnology program and a member of the bioinformatics program in the Boyer School.
