Join us on Wednesday, March 4th from 6-8pm, at City Squire in Schenectady, as we welcome Dr. Lorena Harris and Dr. Richard Simons. Professor Harris and Simons have been instrumental in involving students in research of Vale Cemetery and teaching students how to communicate their research in many different platforms.
Dr. Harris's work includes Microbes of the Vale: A biochemical, microbial, and molecular biology analysis of water microbes from the Vale reservoir. Using Molecular Biology techniques to determine if specific genetic mutations or epigenetic changes have taken place since the last data collection and if the changes have had an effect on the ecosystem.
Dr. Simons' research includes a herpetological survey of Vale Park to aid in the development of a nature trail through the park. The nature trail is a joint effort between Vale park and the adjacent Museum of Innovation and Science.
