If you study, teach or work in the engineering department, chances are that you know Cory Cathrea. The junior electrical engineering major and president of the GCU IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) Student Branch is a master networker and quickly made a name for himself on campus. In fact, that’s what drew the San Francisco Bay area native to GCU – in a young, smaller program, he could get involved right away.

The human body is an amazing machine, all of its cogs working together smoothly to optimize daily functioning. While earning a BS in Biology with an Emphasis in Pre-Medicine or a BS in Nutritional Sciences through the College of Science, Engineering and Technology, students at Grand Canyon University will study anatomy and physiology to learn the roles of the systems of the body. Some of these body parts, however, appear to have no important role to the modern human.

During my time in the BS in Biology with an Emphasis in Pre-Medicine program at GCU, I wanted to be as involved as I possibly could while still being able to focus on my studies. However, I did not join any clubs throughout college, preferring to get involved with a research group instead. I wanted to have research experience because it helps with self-learning and forces you to think further into a specific topic.

For our biotechnology research program this year, we are diving deeper into the realm of how to improve on not only the design of the bandage but also what is incorporated into the final product. Over the past two years, we have been working on developing a hydrocolloid bandage infused with essential oils and incorporating additive manufacturing to combine biology and medicine with engineering.

The Desert Owl Population Improvement (DOPi) Project is a biotechnology research project that aims to find solutions that produce improvements in the numbers of the owl population. The deterioration of habitats and complex economical communities due to urbanization has created harsh conditions in which the cactus ferruginous pygmy owl and Western burrowing owl are struggling to survive and repopulate. A decrease in these native species upsets the delicate ecosystem and leads to a decrease in other species such as the great horned owl, hawks, badgers and coyotes, while also affecting larger agricultural areas.

Content warning: detailed descriptions of cadavers are included in this blog.

Grand Canyon University offers a multitude of grand opportunities for both students and prospective students. One example in particular has to do with the fact that GCU is one of the few undergraduate colleges that allow students to get hands-on experience with cadavers.

This summer, Dr. Ramesh Velupillaimani traveled to Uppsala, Sweden to present his research findings on photosynthesis at the First European Congress on Photosynthesis Research, ePS-1 A Marcus Wallenberg Symposium in Sweden.

Dr. Velupillaimani has been studying how green algae (Chlamydomonas reinhardtii) captures and converts solar energy into chemical energy by using an ultrafast spectroscopic approach. The goal of this research is to produce fuel directly from the sun’s energy, using natural or artificial photosynthesis. This is a potential method to help meet the world’s growing energy needs.
