Advertising in Minneapolis

Seven Delgado

Abstract
This summer I was a Graphic Design Intern at Friends & Neighbors. Under the supervision of BrandLab, a non-profit organization that matched me with this agency, I was able to work on helping the creative team and designing a variety of posters, brochures, and t-shirts for several clients. I have not only learned a lot about the creative side of the advertising industry but got the wonderful experience to learn more about the use of a variety of software and got to build my portfolio. The experience and knowledge I’ve accumulated this past summer have exceeded my expectations for the limitations of a remote internship and I really hope I get to experience it again.

Summer Internship at PADECO Co. Ltd

Hana Mensendiek

Abstract
This summer I interned in the Education Development Division of PADECO Co., Ltd, an international development consultant company in Tokyo, Japan. Apart from translation work and updating their website, I mainly worked on background research and interviews that were needed for a new initiative to start a training program for those wishing to enter the field of international development. As of now, people enter this field with degrees in everything you can imagine. This program would provide a common language for all those entering the field to work on the same projects. At school I tend to focus on / resonate with theories that are critical of international development projects and large donor agencies, so working with them and developing this program was very insightful as to how the ideas I had been grappling with in the classroom would translate to the development industry itself.

Internship at Kyoto University Biosphere Informatics Laboratory: The role of flying foxes in seed dispersal and pollination

Aya Klos

Abstract
This summer I interned at Kyoto University's Biosphere Informatics Laboratory under Dr. Christian Vincenot. I spent the majority of my time preparing a paper for publication on the pollinator/seed disperser role of flying foxes in Okinawa. This process entailed learning about the process of publishing a scientific paper, as well as gaining valuable feedback from Dr. Vincenot. I additionally had the opportunity to accompany Ms. Azmina Kamal, one of the PhD students of the lab, to her bat fieldwork expeditions. I gained experience in setting up harp traps and mist nets to capture bats. My time was incredibly valuable not only in polishing my skills as a young researcher, but also teaching me about the experience of graduate school in Japan.

Understanding Eco-Investment and Sustainable Agriculture: A Summer Internship at World Tree

Benjamin N. Willmore

Abstract
This past summer, I had the opportunity to intern at World Tree, an eco-investment company based in four countries: Canada, the United States, Guatemala, and Mexico. Their signature program, the eco-tree program, offers a chance to invest in sustainable timber and agriculture, harvesting the Empress Tree, a type of tree that regrows upon harvest and has a high CO2 intake. While there, I worked under the Chief Operations Officer, Dr. Cathy Key, and aided in implementing a new field technician reporting system, standardizing the antiquated system and translating the procedures into Spanish as well.

Understanding the Segregation of Chromosomes in Budding Yeast

Chloe Jones

Abstract
For a cell to properly function, it needs to inherit the correct number of chromosomes during cell division. A major machine called microtubules pull chromosomes to each separate daughter cell. Kinetochores also assist in accurate chromosome segregation by binding to chromosomes and microtubules. The focus of my project was Stu2, a protein in budding yeast that interacts with kinetochores to correct erroneous attachments of chromosomes to microtubules. Using fluorescent microscopy, we determined the sequence that signals Stu2’s journey back into the nucleus following protein synthesis which is regulated through phosphorylation and Stu2’s ability to homodimerize. Studying the process of chromosome segregation has implications for cancerous cells in yeast cells which have analogous systems in human cells.

Using ddPCR and Genome Sequences to Design Biomarkers for Triple-Negative Breast Cancer

Katherine Taylor

Abstract
The focus of this summer fellowship has been on studying triple-negative breast cancer. This breast cancer, colloquially named by the negative progesterone and estrogen receptor expression and HER2 protein expression, does not respond to hormone therapy. After diagnosis, a large proportion (30%) of patients receive neoadjuvant chemotherapy before surgery. If the tissue taken out during the surgery does not contain cancerous cells, the patient is said to have achieved a pathologic complete response and does not receive additional treatment. By comparing the cancer genome mutations of patients who achieve a pathologic complete response to those who don’t, we aim to identify a set of genes that serve as a biomarker for favorable response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy. We also aim to see if droplet digital PCR of cell free DNA can be used to detect subcellular levels of cancerous DNA in patients who recur, indicating that a more stringent definition of pathologic complete response is needed.

Glycolysis Increases Multivesicular Bodies in Hepatic Stellate Cells

Suad Mohamed

Abstract
The aim of this study is to further understand the role of glycolysis in the secretion of fibrogenic extracellular vesicles by examining if the blocking of glycolysis using 2DG has any effect on the levels of multi-vesicular bodies(MVBs) in hepatic stellate cells(HSCs). We utilized immunofluorescence on HSCs to analyze if blocking glycolysis will lead to differences in the levels of the protein CD63, a marker of MVBs, and of HK2, a key phosphorylating protein in glycolysis.
