It has already been a productive school year for the Canyon Neuroscience Center (CNC), and it looks like it’s only bound to get busier. With multiple ongoing projects established by faculty within the College of Science, Engineering and Technology, the CNC is one of several Research and Design Programs that give students the opportunity to perform hands-on research. Established in the fall of 2016, the CNC has multiple research foci; Drs. Cynthia Foote, Sherlin Moses and I are investigating the neurobiological mechanisms underlying Alzheimer’s disease using a cell culture model; Dr. Anju Dubey has created an app that tracks heart rate variability; and our newest faculty member, Dr. Randy Boyles, is exploring the role of chromatin remodeling in neurodegenerative diseases using fruit flies.

Cyber warfare is a huge problem and is constantly threatening our way of life. More than 4,000 ransomware attacks occur each day, according to the FBI. As the threat continues, so does the demand for cyber security workers. Grand Canyon University is contributing to the fight against cyber warfare by partnering with the Arizona Cyber Threat Response Alliance and Arizona Cyber Warfare Ranger (AZCWR) to open a new cyber security facility within the GCU Innovation Center, which is located at 27th Avenue and Camelback Road.

Morgan Melton is junior at Grand Canyon University and studying information technology with an emphasis in cyber security. Morgan’s favorite memory since being a GCU student takes us back to his freshman year: He had just transferred into his first computer class and knew nothing about the subject. He went to his professor’s office and told him, “I know nothing special about computers, but teach me everything you possibly can.”

Starting roughly 3.8 billion years ago, a war was started – the pistol of the Grand Race for Planetary Dominance was fired and genetically based organisms (that’s all of them) began adapting, shuffling their cards and applying new techniques in their will to reign over the animals that were slower to adapt. Some mechanisms worked, and the empires of their respective kingdoms expanded. Some techniques failed, however, and the inventors of such machinations were forced to fold – this planet was no longer theirs. Those who did survive found themselves engaged in an even more difficult conflict: Their opponents had upgraded their weaponry, forged alliances and purchased vassals.
