CNND Receives $6 Million
Grant
On May 12th, the Center for Neurovirology and
Neurodegenerative Disorders (CNND) was awarded a
$6 million dollar grant from the National Institute of
Neurological Disorders and Stroke of the National
Institutes of Health.
New Faculty & Residents
The Department of Pathology and Microbiology is
pleased to announce the newest additions to the faculty
and staff.
Dr. Kerry Bernal joined
the department July 1st as our
newest faculty member. Dr.
Bernal also completed her
residency through our
department.
The department also has
three first year residents and a
(Dr. Kerry Bernal)
new fifth year fellow.
Dr. Shane Kohl, Dr. Geoffrey Talmon and Dr. Michael
Belenky join our department as our newest pathology
residents.
(CNND Staff Members)
The grant money will be used to study how the
brain’s immune system can lead to damage of nerve cells
in HIV-dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. The research
will also study how parts of the immune system can be
harnessed to reverse different forms of dementia.
The grant is known as a program project grant and
it provides for funding over a five year period.
Typically, program project grants are a collaboration
between several institutions because of the complexity
of the project. With this grant, however, UNMC is

Letter from the Chair
Welcome to a new academic
year! This past year was filled with
challenges and opportunities, but
it was a highly successful year in
all of our missions.
We welcome three new
pathology residents, Michael
Belenky, Geoffrey Talmon and
Shane Kohl; a new hemato(Dr. Sam Cohen)
pathology fellow, Ken He Young;
and three new faculty, Kerry Bernal, who started July
1st;, Neil Abrahams, who will begin later this summer,
and Chris Hans, who will begin January 1, 2004
On campus, significant construction is underway,
with the new power plant and parking garage already
completed, and the new research tower, the Durham
Research Center, due to be completed later this year. In
addition, our hospital changed its name from the
Nebraska Health System to The Nebraska Medical
Center, but more importantly, has begun construction
on an addition that will expand and improve several of
these services. Opportunities abound, and despite
numerous challenges, particularly financial cuts from
the state and NIH, we look forward to an even more
successful year ahead than we experienced in the past.

Honors & Awards
Amber Donnelly, SCT(ASCP), was promoted to the
position of Program Director, Cytotechnology Program,
effective July 1, 2003. Amber has also been elected to
the Cytotechnology Advisory Committee for the
American Society of Cytopathology.
Steven Hinrichs, M.D., was awarded the StokesShackleford Professor of Microbiology, for his
outstanding achievements, effective March 1, 2003
through February 29, 2008.
Charlie Kuszynski, Ph.D., was awarded $15,000
from the Nebraska Banker’s Association for an Aerosol
Management upgrade on his FACS Vantage Flow
Cytometer.
Faculty First to Participate in
Education Scholars Program
Jim Booth, Ph.D, and Karen Honeycutt, were two
faculty members chosen to participate in the first group
of the Education Scholars Program, sponsored by the
UNMC Educational Development Institute (EDI).
This 18-month program was designed to teach faculty
how to design and carry out educational-related
research, including methods of quantitative and
qualitative analysis. The final goal of the program was
to complete a project that is publishable in a peerreviewed educational journal or can be presented at
regional or national meetings.
According to Karen Honeycutt,
MT(ASCP)SM, “the educational
scholars program provided an
excellent mentoring system for
developing, conducting and
publishing educational-based
research projects. Participants
became familiar with the
(Karen Honeycutt)
educational research literature,
as opposed to the scientific-based research literature
that we work with regularly.” Karen’s project was
entitled: “Cooperative Learning in the UNMC’s MT/
CLS Program: Measuring Learner Outcomes After
Decreasing Extraneous Cognitive Load.”
Dr. Booth chose as a research
project the use of matrices, or
tables, by medical students in
learning the basic sciences.
Working with his faculty mentor,
Naomi Lacy in Family Medicine,
he completed a first paper on the
methodology of using matrices to
(Dr. Jim Booth)
teach medical students a more
effective way of learning. After approval by the UNMC
Institutional Review Board, he will begin gathering data
for a second paper on the effectiveness of this method.
Dr. Booth presented the basics of using matrices, as well
as concept maps, on March 28, 2003, at a faculty
development workshop/luncheon sponsored by the EDI.
The Education Scholars Program concluded with a final
oral presentation and graduation on June 9, 2003.

As summer rolls around, many seasonally full-time
students look forward to a few lazy months of sleeping
late, lounging by the pool and catching up on TV
reruns. Some highly motivated students, however,
choose to spend these typically carefree months
researching and learning with the hands-on, outside the
classroom experience that the UNMC Summer Students
Program offers.
The 10-week program draws students by promoting
the advantages of spending the summer in a research
laboratory, including learning techniques and new
concepts, working with professional researchers and
earning a competitive summer salary. Individual
departments select summer students based on their
academic achievement and interests in research areas,
and the students work in either a basic science or
clinical research laboratory.

Summer Student Program Largest Ever for Path/Micro
(First Row – L to R: Michele Kwarteng, Olamide Alabi, Anastasia Persidsky,
Tolulope Olade, Shenandoa Toote. Back Row – Ryan Lynch, Erik Bowman,
Jesse Chrastil, Liza Johnson and Bryan Knipe.)
The Center for Neurological and Neurodegenerative
Disorders (CNND) is one of several UNMC areas
participating in the program. Howard Gendelman,
M.D., CNND Director, has watched the program grow
to this summer’s highest number of summer students,
totaling 19. “It has been a joy to see the growth and to
also see what has happened to past students,” he said.
“Many have entered medical or graduate school, and a
few have completed their training and begun science
careers on their own.”
One of the strengths of the program is the variety of
topics ranging from basic molecular biology to the
study of human diseases.

Microbiology, Director of the
Nebraska Public Health
Laboratory, and the NU Center for
Biosecurity, have been working
closely with Chancellor Harold
Maurer, and other state and
university officials on homeland
security and bioterrorism
preparedness throughout the past
several months. At the forefront of
(Dr. Steven Hinrichs)
this mission is the authorization of
$5 million that Senator Ben Nelson has secured from
the Department of Defense budget (pending
congressional approval), which has been earmarked as a
“building block” for UNMC’s goal to establish a
national bioterrorism center on campus. The money
will be used to develop portable and networked
automation testing technology to efficiently and rapidly
process specimens to detect the existence of biological
agents in the event of a biological attack.
Dr. Markin, who is also chairman of the board of
LAB-InterLink, a UNMC technology transfer company
that makes automated laboratory technology, said,
“This funding will enable UNMC to develop
technology to enhance our country’s homeland security,
as well as the safety of our troops in the battlefield.”
On Monday, June 9, 2003, a top official from the
U.S. Department of Homeland Security visited UNMC
to view the University’s expertise on bioterrorism
preparedness firsthand. U.S. Navy Rear Admiral James
Plehal visited several areas of UNMC and UNO, and
witnessed a demonstration of the automated clinical
laboratory, one system of which is up and running in
the clinical pathology section of the department.

Summer Student Program
(Continued from Page 4)
The program is directed towards current UNMC
students, graduate and undergraduate students and
high school students. Compared with similar programs
at other reseach centers, the Medical Center’s summer
student opportunities really stand out to students.
Olamide Alabi, a junior at the University of NebraskaLincoln, returned for her second summer, and speaks
highly of the program. “Other research opportunities
mostly have summer students look up information, not
participate in hands-on work,” she said. “Here I do my
own research and I am completely involved in the
laboratory with my mentor.”
The program is not new to the medical center, as it
has been available to students through several
departments for more than three decades. Julia Bridge,
M.D., Department of Pathology and Microbiology, has
participated as a mentor in the program in the past and
has seen the positive results. “Our laboratory has had
summer students for the last 10 years,” she said.
“Many of our students have returned for two or three
summers and others have also returned as UNMC
residents for monthly rotations. Each of these students
has had the opportunity to not only contribute to a
project, but also to develop and publish a manuscript.”
Anastasia Persidsky, an undergraduate student at the
University of Iowa, believes the program has a lot to
offer, especially for those interested in the field. “It gave
me experience with science and not only introduced me
to the neurodegenerative diseases, but also allowed me
to get involved with the ongoing research in the medical
field that I want to go into,” she stated.
The students aren’t the only ones benefiting from
their summer at the Medical Center. Mentors find this
experience just as rewarding as the students do. “The
summer students provide a lot of help and they are very
enthusiastic and want to learn a lot,” said Santhi
Gorantla of the Neuroregeneration Lab. “For me, it’s a
teaching experience and at the same time, I can get
something done with their help.”
With so many rewarding experiences and feedback,
the program is likely to continue to grow across the
Medical Center’s campus. “It is our mission to train
the scientists of the future,” Dr. Gendelman said.
“Mentoring young people with a strong desire to pursue
a scientific career is our legacy.”
