    Natalia,

    El Sistema Universitario Ana G. Mendez tiene un programa de investigacion para estudiantes de escuela superior (http://ccce.suagm.edu/Pre_College/index.asp).  Tambien te sugiero, que te conectes con el Fideicomiso de Conservacion, que se encuentra en Manati (La Hacienda Esperanza), su proyecto Para la Naturaleza (http://www.paralanaturaleza.org/) ya que ellos tienen varios proyectos de Ciencia ciudadana, donde pueden participar ninos y la comunidad en general.   

    Exito!

    When my family and friends talk about education. We defined as a process does not end. We have the responsability to be a better person in many ways.

    Que bueno Melitza! Suena interesantísimo. Por favor mantennos informados de la conferencia, lo que es el Deep Carbon Observatory, y de las lecciones aprendidas para investigadores jóvenes :-)

    The Summer, the REU, and Research Culture, Rodolfo J. Romañach, Ph.D., Professor of Chemistry, Site Leader ERC-SOPS

     

    I see the summer as my time for reading papers, organizing for a challenging upcoming course, and working with graduate students on manuscripts. I believe that this “renewal time” is very important for a researcher and for this reason I have never taught a course in the summer. I look back at summers where this renewal was the key to successful research grants, and others that were essential in developing a new course.

     

    These thoughts bounced back and forth through my mind when I first listened to Dr. Ubaldo Córdova describe his ideas for an NSF proposal on research opportunities for undergraduate students in the area of soft matter (REU). I was happy to learn about his dream of improving research on our campus, but at the same time concerned that this would take some time away from my summer plans. I agreed to support the program but not as active researcher, by providing a talk on writing skills for scientific communication, and some support funding through our Sloan Program of Exemplary Mentoring which is also focused on encouraging students to advance to graduate studies. 

    The REU proposal was approved and one of the students selected indicated his interest in working on near infrared spectroscopy, the area of expertise of my research lab. We were able to include this young researcher in our group plans and have one of my most memorable, happy, and productive summers. Fortunately, during the last year we have developed a research project within our Engineering Research Center for Structured Organic Particulate Systems (hppt://ercforsops.org) that involves all graduate students in our research group and Dr. Rafael Méndez from the Chemical Engineering department has also joined this effort. Four graduate students worked with Jacob Townsend, from Kennesaw State University, who will be completing his B.S. in Chemistry this next December. 

    Jacob worked on a set of experiments in this group project, and very quickly understood the theoretical background and importance of the research.  Our research involves analyzing pharmaceutical materials in the solid state. Jacob first worked with an experiment that we have designed for training new students,   which helped him in understanding the physics related to the scattering of radiation. He also grasped very quickly the multivariate analytical methods (chemometrics) that are based on linear algebra and careful evaluation of near infrared spectra. Jacob attended the IFPAC Summer Summit, a research meeting where our graduate students presented posters. He was exposed to the scientific literature, participated in the planning and performance of experiments, and made significant progress in the evaluation of the results obtained. By the end of the summer, he was working extremely well with our specialized software programs and studying them in detail. He developed a very well structured final report, which will form the basis of a future research paper. The results obtained were somewhat surprising and will have a strong impact on our future research.

    This summer has been one my best, it was the renewal that I have always dreamed thanks to the team that we have developed. This summer has been successful thanks to graduate student Barbara Alvarado who served as the pre faculty mentor to Jacob and also thanks to Adriluz Sánchez, Carlos Ortega and Eduardo Hernández, graduate students who also worked with Jacob throughout the summer. Dr. Carlos Pinzón our new postdoctoral research associate also contributed, and Dr. Rafael Méndez served as Jacob’s mentor and suggested key experiments that made a big difference. We were able to advance research, meet several times to discuss important research papers, and I was also able to make two presentations at the World Conference on Sampling and Blending in Bordeaux, enjoy some vacation time with my family, and two manuscripts were submitted for publication. 

    Research culture is how researchers feel and see the uniqueness of their research environment. If after listening to the President or Chancellor speak about the importance of research, two researchers say: “Wonderful speech and plans, but the reality in Mayagüez is …..”, they are describing our research culture. 

    Research culture starts within our research groups and students, and developing a strong community around a group project can be very productive. I hope this summary is useful to new professors starting research groups within our Campus and University.

    A pesar de que tengo reparo a cómo se usa el término "estilo de vida", encuentro particularmente intersante este atículo y entiendo que sería recomendable una difusión más amplia del mismo.  Muchos de los puntos expuestos por el autor son discutidos por mí en el salón de clases con los estudiantes y en esas discusiones me he podido percatar que --a pesar de que usan continuamente el término "contra natura" para referirse a algunas conductas humanas-- un problema serio es que las personas no se ven a sí mismas como parte de la naturaleza y, por lo tanto, entienden que no están sujetas a los mismos principios.  De hecho, muchas se sorprenden y hasta se ofenden cuando les menciono que los seres humanos también somos animales.  Es mi opinión que las personas están tan absortas dentro de la versión creacionista --la cual le provee a los seres humanos un sitial y una dignidad distinta que al resto de la "creación"-- que no pueden imaginarse estar en el mismo rubro de un simio o de un crustáceo.  Felicitaciones al autor.

    Interesante. Estoy interesado en el tema de bioinformática.

    Seguiré de cerca el programa. Ya será para la próxima oportunidad. 

    Gracias por la información.
