03/08/2013: Siena joins Compact Muon Solenoid Experiment
Matt Bellis, assistant professor of physics, has joined the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) as an associate member, affiliated with the Cornell University research group. The LHC is the world’s largest and highest-energy particle accelerator and is regarded as an engineering milestone. The CMS experiment is one of the flagship detectors at the LHC and was one of two that claimed observation of a Higgs-like particle in the summer of 2012. Bellis’s association represents a tremendous opportunity for Siena students to be involved in one of the most exciting particle physics experiments of our time. More
02/27/2013: NSF Grant Awarded to Study Morphogenis
Assistant Professor of Biology Adam Mason was recently awarded a National Science Foundation (NSF) research grant to study morphogenesis in male Caenorhabditis elegans, which are small worm-like organisms. Mason’s NSF grant started on January 1 and is valued at $362,201. Mason’s research will link aspects of cell biology, genetics and developmental biology to provide a detailed description of morphogenesis in C. elegans and inform the understanding of similar processes in vertebrates.
