         Vision                 and        Overview
Innovation Expo 2011: Advancing Student Research and Innovation Across the Liberal Arts is an
inaugural collaboration between the Office of Career Planning and Placement and the three
academic divisions of Morehouse College: Business Administration and Economics, Science and
Mathematics, and Social Sciences and Humanities. With a shared commitment to nurturing the
next generation of ethical and responsible leadership, the event highlights the unique
perspectives and resources of the three sponsoring divisions, with a particular focus on public
health, entrepreneurship, and science and mathematics. We pay particular homage to the legacy
of one of the biology department's most distinguished professors, Dr. Frederick E. Mapp.


Innovation Expo 2011 provides a unique space and national platform to give greater visibility to
student research and entrepreneurial activities across a range of disciplines and from communities
and backgrounds that historically have been under-represented in the sciences and under-
recognized as innovators. Our goal is to stimulate dialogue and explore strategies to spur
university/community/government/industry partnerships in support of ongoing student development
and growth.


While some of the faces may be new, in a collaborative fashion the conference continues to offer
those program elements that have come to be synonymous with each of the organizing entities:

      • Research Poster and Oral Presentations - allowing students to exhibit their research
        skills among their peers and to the professional community.
      • Business Plan Competition - showcasing finalist of nationwide minority undergraduate
        business plan competition as they compete for startup cash and mentoring support.
      • Innovative Creative Entrepreneurship (ICE) Awards - recognizing students and
        small business visionary leaders who have championed the cause of minority
        business development and innovation.
      • Panel Discussions - exploring topics that continue to impact minority health, as
        well as the economic well-being of our communities.
      • Entrepreneurship Workshops and Networking Sessions - providing students and
        small business owners with access to technical assistance and resources to take
        their ideas from the classroom to the marketplace.
      • Student Career and Graduate School Fair - providing recruiters with access to a
        pool of talent and students with information on opportunities to continue
        their growth.

Innovation Expo 2011 serves to address issues that are affecting our community and to increase
the interest and awareness of our students in research, entrepreneurship, and public health.

6           Keynote
            Address               Dr. Tyrone B. Hayes
    Tyrone Hayes is a specialist in the developmental endocrinology of amphibians, but
    his work encompasses a “wide sweep in biology.” For biologist and herpetologist
    Tyrone Hayes, scientific breakthroughs don't begin and end in the laboratory. They also
    come from the field. Which is why, more often than not, you'll find Hayes wet, muddy,
    and knee-deep in an African swamp at 2 a.m., the time when the frogs come out.

    Growing up in South Carolina, one of Hayes' favorite pastimes was tracking down the
    region's abundant turtles, snakes, and toads. That abiding fascination led Hayes to earn a Bachelor’s degree in
    organismic and evolutionary biology from Harvard University. He later received a PhD in integrative biology from the
    University of California, Berkeley, where he currently serves as a professor.

    Hayes' interest in frog hormones, specifically those of a tiny reed frog common in Ethiopia and Uganda, sparked his
    interest in his current fieldwork. "Surprisingly, frog hormones are very similar, and in some cases identical, to human
    hormones", he says. "So what affects a frog may also affect humans." It was during a night in the boggy African bush
    that Hayes' flashlight revealed an unexpected discovery: several members of the reed frog genus had changed color.
    Males, which are normally green, had taken on the reddish background and white spots of females.

    Seeking to understand why, Hayes arrived at a theory: During the metamorphosis from tadpole to adult, frogs are
    very sensitive to changes in their environment, including chemicals in the water or in their food supply. So the
    change in coloration indicated that the frog’s extremely thin, sensitive skin was reacting to contaminants in the water.
    Thousands of frogs later, Hayes and his research team have proved the theory correct. Reed frogs, indeed, serve as
    tiny red flags that can warn when dangerous, even cancer-causing chemicals are present in a water source. These
    harmful substances may contain or act like hormones, triggering the color transformation. Contaminants include
    plastic by-products, pesticides in crop sprays such as DDT, and synthetic hormones such as DDS. Because they
    cannot be broken down during sewage treatment, the toxins flow into marshes and lakes.

    "This is the same water people cook and bathe with," Hayes notes. "We've found developmental changes in tadpoles
    when water contains contaminants 50 times lower than what's allowed in US drinking water. If chemicals in such low
    concentrations can impact amphibians, mammals may also be affected." Hayes realized that his simple observation
    could have enormous practical applications and that Reed frogs could become a low-cost way to test for water
    pollution in developing countries. Local residents would only need to raise the frogs in questionable water sources
    and observe their color as adults to check for contaminants. Hayes' findings reveal a crucial new link between
    conservation and health.

    In addition to teaching, Hayes began conducting research for the chemical company Novartis, which later became
    the agri-chemical giant, Syngenta Crop Protection. His research on the herbicide atrazine concluded that "developing
    male frogs exhibited female characteristics after exposure to atrazine ... at exposure levels deemed safe by the US
    Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)." More recently, Hayes has been a co-author on work that details atrazine
    inducing mammary and prostate cancer in laboratory rodents and highlights atrazine as a potential cause of
    reproductive cancers in humans.

    Despite the resistance he encountered from Syngenta due to his damaging findings, Hayes has continued to speak
    out on the damaging effects of atrazine. He refers to his mission as an issue of environmental justice. His goal is to
    make his findings available to those who live in lower socio-economic areas who are more likely to be exposed to
    the harmful effects of this herbicide.

    Tyrone Hayes has published more than 40 papers, more than 150 abstracts, and has given more than 300 talks on
    this topic.

       of     Science and Mathematics

      S PONSORED P ROGRAMS
      The Division of Science and Mathematics was established in 199 9 as a pilot of a new division struc-
      ture at the College. The goal of establishing three divisions at the College, including Humanities and
      Social Sciences and Business and Economics, was to reduce the scale of the College to promote
      closer interaction between students and faculty, as well as between faculty members in different
      departments in the division. The Division of Science and Mathematics consists of six departments:
      Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics, and Psychology.

      The Division strives to produce students who are well prepared for graduate or professional school,
      as well as the workforce. Students can major in one or more of the six disciplines in the Division and
      may also complete requirements for one of the minors offered in the division or in another division.
      Upon graduation, students receive the Bachelor of Science Degree (BS). In the Psychology
      Department, there is also a Bachelor of Arts Degree (BA). A dual-degree program with thirteen
      different engineering schools allows a student to obtain a liberal arts education at Morehouse for three
      years and then transfer to an engineering school for an additional two years of engineering
      education. Upon graduation, the student receives a bachelor of science in a discipline at Morehouse
      and a bachelor of science in Engineering from the engineering school.

      In the Division of Science and Mathematics there are several sponsored programs and minors that
      provide resources for science and mathematics majors. Each program has specific goals to aid
      students in their matriculation at Morehouse College some programs offer scholarships and stipends.

           Association of Blacks in Energy (AABE) to partner on collaborative projects
           that address critical global issues. These issues include facilitating student access to careers in
           energy and increasing the participation of minority-owned small businesses in the energy sector.

     Lycurgus Muldrow, PhD, director of Sponsored Research for the Division of Science and Mathematics,
     led an effort to secure a $3 million grant from the National Science Foundation. The grant will help
     fund the initial stage of the College's new Institute for Sustainable Energy. The Institute for
     Sustainable Energy will be part of a much larger and ambitious project, the Morehouse-
     Wide Initiative for Sustainable Energy, or M-WISE. The aim of M-WISE is to create an
     interdisciplinary curriculum that molds students from all areas of studies into leaders in
     the growing global arena of sustainable energy. In addition, students from all three
     academic divisions have the opportunity to graduate with a minor in interdisciplinary energy.

       Sciences Institute
                      at Morehouse College
      Serving the Atlanta University Center Since 1988

      PHSI
             Over the past decades, one vision of Morehouse College has been to support the training of students to diversify
             the public health sciences work force. As a result, the Public Health Sciences Institute (PHSI) was created under
             the auspices of a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). PHSI, a
             program in the Division of Science and Mathematics, is the only undergraduate program in the Atlanta University
             Center (AUC) with a minor in public health. PHSI’s mission is to formulate and implement strategies that will
             lead to positive outcomes for underrepresented minorities by training undergraduate students in biostatistics,
             epidemiology, and occupational safety and health.
             The primary goal of PHSI is to better prepare disadvantaged minority students for entry into graduate programs
             at schools of public health where minorities are drastically underrepresented.
                      • Better prepare disadvantaged minority students for graduate school by providing a comprehensive
                        educational training program in public health
                      • Enhance the research skills of disadvantaged minority students through public health mentorships
                      • Provide financial support for student-faculty research teams to conduct public health research
                      • Increase interest among students in pursuing careers in public health
                      • Heighten interest among faculty to conduct public health research

                                                                                 w w w. m o r e h o u s e . e d u / c e n t e r s / p h s i
