Delores J. Kerstein, Broadcasting Service, received four awards from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting totaling $1,018,124; $816,444 for the WSIU-TV Community Service Grant, $141,803 for the WSIU Radio Community Service Grant (Unrestricted), $42,673 for the WSIU Radio Community Service Grant (Restricted), and $17,204 for the WSIU-TV Interconnection Grant for 2013. John Washburn and Jeanne Kitchens, Workforce Education & Development, received $313,950 from the University of Illinois for the Illinois Shared Learning Environment (ISLE); a new statewide technology infrastructure. ISLE will provide capacity for statewide student-level data and for a variety of technologies and applications to support academic education, career and technical education, and workforce development programs. It will advance the personalization of learning and empower education and workforce users to manage their academic and career pathways. Gregory W. Whitledge and Jesse T. Trushenski, Fisheries and IL Aquaculture Center, received $43,792 from the IDNR to determine the viral hemorrhagic septicemia (VHS) status of fish populations in select Illinois lakes and rivers where VHS has not previously been detected. VHS is a lethal disease of fishes that was discovered in the Great Lakes during the past decade and Illinois is designated as an affected region. Vickie Devenport, Broadcasting Service, received $21,352 from the IL State Library for the Southern IL Radio Information Service; a community service of WSIU Public Broadcasting which provides a reading and information service for individuals who are blind, visually impaired and print-disabled. Medicine Shelley A. Tischkau, Pharmacology, received $291,691 from the US Dept. of Health and Human Services for the “Circadian Clock Disruption: Mechanism for Dioxin-Induced Metabolic Syndrome” project.
Farid Kadyrov, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, received $232,800 from the US Dept. of Health and Human Services to investigate DNA mismatch repair (MMR) in the chromatin environment. Specifically, the project will investigate the impact of interplay between MMR and the nucleosomal environment on both genetic stability and efficiency of two common anticancer drugs. Robert S. Mocharnuk, Medicine, received $27,615 from the Incyte Corporation for the “Polycythemia Vera Symptom Study Evaluation Ruxolitinib Versus Hydroxyurea” project. Aziz Khan, Cancer Institute, received $18,125 from Bristol-Myers Squibb for the “SIMPLICITY: Interventions for Managing Patients with Chronic Myeloid Leukemia in the Chronic Phase” project. Thomas K.

Dale Vitt, Plant Biology, received $77,490 from Syncrude Canada for research to achieve a better understanding of the establishment and growth responses of key plant species to water and soil qualities as found in the CT experimental area and amendments that are proposed for peatland construction. Lalit Gupta, Electrical and Computer Engineering, received $67,005 from McGraw-Hill for software with the core functionality of dropping out the background of scanned documents. Kelly Bender, Microbiology, received $22,500 from the US Dept. of Energy for the identification and analysis of small RNAs in D. vulgaris which is necessary for uncovering novel regulatory mechanisms involved in processes critical to the DOE such as stress response and environmental adaptation. Katherine Hellgren, College of Science, received $17,000 from Academy of Applied Science, Inc. for the Illinois Junior Science and Humanities Symposium which is a cooperative effort of SIUC’s Colleges of Science and Engineering, and the Division of Continuing Education. The program format includes guest lectures, student paper presentations, and visits to various laboratories on campus. Student science organizations and campus Army ROTC also become involved.
