Leo, Anthony and Adrianna Bertoldi will graduate from Seton Hall University— together. On May 15th at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, New Jersey, Seton Hall University will graduate 1465 candidates with bachelor’s degrees and 1116 with master’s and doctorate degrees. Founded in 1856, the undergraduate class of 2017 at 1465 is the largest in the modern history of Seton Hall and the commencement will mark the University surpassing 100,000 living alumni. Among those historic numbers are the Bertoldi triplets, Leo, Anthony and Adrianna from Roseland, New Jersey. The trio will share in that history and some of their own, as they represent the only known triplets to graduate together at Seton Hall and the first ever generation in their family to graduate from college. Interestingly enough, the triplets’ decision to attend Seton Hall was made somewhat independently. Adrianna, a nursing major, said, “I actually didn't know my brothers applied to Seton Hall until I got my acceptance letter in the mail. They asked if their letters came and then told me they also applied, but later than I did. It just so happened Seton Hall had great programs for all of our majors, so it was an easy choice to make.” She added, “To be honest, I wanted to go to school out of state. But when I visited the Seton Hall campus, there was just something about it that made me feel at home more than any other university I visited. I also knew I could excel here as a nursing student which was a large factor in deciding on where to attend.” For Anthony Bertoldi, a Business Administration major with a dual concentration in Sport Management and Marketing, academic structure and opportunity played a large role in his decision to attend. He said, “I liked how Seton Hall had their Sport Management program in the business school. Also, the proximity to New York City and the opportunity for internships in the area was unprecedented.” With more than 17,000 internship opportunities available at Seton Hall, 81 percent of students complete one or more experiential education programs including internships, clinical rotations, student teaching, etc. Leo, the oldest of the trio by a few minutes, is a History major with a minor in Political Science, and when asked what drew him to the University, said: “Seton Hall gave me the most money in scholarships. The campus is also small which I love and is beautiful, especially in the spring.” The graduation processional will commence at 11 a.m. The speaker for the 160th Baccalaureate Commencement Exercises will be the eminent global investment expert Matthew W. Wright ’89. Mr. Wright is the Founder and President of Disciplina Group LLC, which includes Disciplina Advisors, a risk consultancy firm, and Disciplina Capital Management, an investment advisory firm.

Neurobiology of Learning and Memory | Year: 2015
Evidence from both human and animal studies indicates that rapid eye movement sleep (REM) is essential for the acquisition and retention of information, particularly of an emotional nature. Learning and memory can also be impacted by manipulation of housing condition such as exposure to an enriched environment (EE). This study investigated the effects of REM deprivation and EE, both separately and combined, on the extinction of conditioned fear in rats. Consistent with prior studies, conditioning was enhanced in EE-reared rats and extinction was impaired in REM deprived rats. In addition, rats exposed to both REM deprivation and EE showed the greatest impairment in extinction, with effects persisting through the first two days of extinction training. This study is the first to explore the combination of REM deprivation and EE and suggests that manipulations that alter sleep, particularly REM, can have persisting deleterious effects on emotional memory processing. © 2015 Elsevier Inc.

The practice of physics and chemistrys - the making and breaking of molecular bonds arising from the interactions of matter and energys - is coincidental with the earliest matter/energy of the Cosmos. The scenario of an interconnected and tightly integrated global geochemical sulfur cycle extending from the atmosphere to the mantle on Archean Earth emerges from several recent studies. Like the environment in which it was generated and reared, primitive Earth, cobbled together from debris of the Solar System, was also a very likely and prolific laboratory for prebiotic syntheses. While isotopic and other geological evidence offer useful dating clues, the results may be equivocal. Biomarkers are potentially useful because each Domain, Archaea, Bacteria, and Eukarya, has signature membrane lipids with relatively stable complex carbon skeletons.

Functionalized fluorine containing phthalocyanine molecules, methods of making, and methods of use in diagnostic applications and disease treatment are disclosed herein. In some embodiments, the fluorine containing phthalocyanine molecules are functionalized with a reactive functional group or at least one cancer-targeting ligand (CTL). The CTL can facilitate more efficient binding and/or internalization to a cancer cell than to a healthy cell. The CTL can inhibit expression of oncoprotein in some embodiments. The pthalocyanine moiety can be used in diagnostic applications, such as fluorescence labeling of a cancer cell, and/or treatment applications, such as catalyzing formation of a reactive oxygen species (ROS) which can contribute to cell death of a cancer cell.

Dr. Rhonda Quinn, of Seton Hall University (SHU), will investigate how past human groups adapted to resource availability and environmental change caused by global climate perturbations. Archaeology and paleoanthropology offer a deep time perspective on the impact of climatic and environmental change on human systems and can be used to elucidate modern human-environment interactions. Dr. Quinn employs stable isotopic analysis to characterize past human diet and mobility in the context of environmental conditions and will use her research program to engage high school, undergraduate, and beginning graduate students with hands-on research and training experiences. With NSF CAREER support, Dr. Quinn will provide a laboratory-based, three-week summer short course for undergraduate and/or beginning graduate students across disciplines. Students will be drawn from SHU, a primarily undergraduate teaching school serving a diverse socio-economic and cultural student population, and other area and/or collaborative institutions. Two annual undergraduate laboratory assistantships will provide further opportunities for student research project development. This program will also incorporate area high school students into summer and yearly laboratory research projects from historically underrepresented populations through Project SEED (American Chemical Societys summer research program for economically disadvantaged young people) and SHUs Experiential Learning Initiative with North Star Academy in Newark, NJ. These activities will provide student researchers with a solid foundation for understanding and critically evaluating stable isotopic data through a lens of anthropological inquiry. A portion of NSF CAREER funding will provide enhanced facilities in Dr. Quinns laboratory to increase research productivity and educational infrastructure and enrich the collaborative research environment at SHU.
Dr. Quinn will incorporate students into her three interrelated research areas: environments of human evolution, environmental influences of human diet and mobility, and stable isotopic actualistic studies. The first set of projects will examine environmental contexts of early human ancestors in order to better understand what local and global environmental factors influenced morphological and behavioral changes in the human lineage. Environmental selective pressures and habitat preferences are reconstructed by employing stable isotopic analyses of paleosols and other geological materials to infer past vegetation communities and environmental conditions at archaeological and paleoanthropological sites spanning 4-1 Ma in the Turkana Basin, Kenya. The second area explores how human diet and mobility patterns have changed with environmental and climatic perturbations, with an emphasis on Holocene coastal and island archaeological sites. Studies of prehistoric human diet change and mobility are focused on Pacific Islands and coastal Florida during times of climatically induced ecosystem collapse and employ stable isotopes of human and faunal skeletal materials. The third area is concerned with increasing stable isotopic methodological resolution with actualistic studies of modern ecosystems. These include isotopically characterizing modern water, soil, plant and animal samples for building interpretative frameworks in the vicinity of archaeological and paleoanthropological sites and also from analogous environments. Samples collected during Dr. Quinns prior fieldwork will be utilized for student-involved, laboratory-based research projects.
