A Message from our President

This past summer, I had the privilege of attending the Woodrow Wilson Leadership School hosted by the National Headquarters of Phi Kappa Psi. One of the opening sessions left a lasting impression. I distinctly remember a quote from Taylor Deer, a Phi Psi keynote, saying “If you are being tested, then you are being perfected.” I believe that this quote encompasses what being a member of Phi Kappa Psi and brotherhood is all about. It should come as no surprise that life will be filled with tests and challenges. Coming to Drexel, I had no intentions of joining a Fraternity but I challenged myself to push my comfort zone and attend the recruitment events. This decision ultimately brought me to the brotherhood of Phi Kappa Psi. As a new member, my challenges varied from balancing academics to family, friends, and now included Fraternity life. Overcoming that challenge helped mold me into the leader, friend, mentor, and proud Phi Psi brother I am today.

What is it that exactly makes Phi Kappa Psi different from other Fraternities? We support and mentor our members through tough challenges in hopes that they will learn and perfect themselves. As a brotherhood, we are able to navigate the challenges in our individual lives. Phi Kappa Psi acts as a gentle hand, encouraging its members to achieve the greatest version of themselves. The challenges of college and Fraternity life will certainly not cease, however, I can assure you, neither will the support of Phi Kappa Psi. My vision for Phi Psi is to continue to build a brotherhood of educated and intelligent gentlemen that will challenge me to become a better and stronger leader, thus striving for perfection. As my members challenge me, I in return will challenge them to consider their legacy in both their personal and professional endeavors.

With that being said, as guests and visitors to our website, I challenge you to learn more about the Greek community, Phi Kappa Psi and not let the negative stories of the media guide your opinions. To the gentlemen interested in joining a Fraternity, I challenge you to push your comfort zone, as I did, and attend a recruitment event. Finally, to the current members of Greek Life, I challenge you to never stop spreading the ideals and values of your individual chapters, while remembering that we are a family and community. Together, through challenging and testing each other, we can make one another and our chapters a little more perfect.

Best,

Andrew Shatynski…

A protein in charge of neurodegenerative diseases.

Furthermore, copper, a metallic that is clearly a normal element of human brain biochemistry, biases the prion proteins on the ‘off’ condition. This novel system, where the two elements of the prion proteins have opposing features, was not completely valued before,’ explained matching writer David Harris, MD, PhD, teacher and chair from the division of biochemistry at Boston School School of Medication . Utilizing a multi-disciplinary approach concerning electrophysiological, biophysical and cellular techniques, the researchers discovered that elements of the prion protein missing the ‘braking mechanism’ region created abnormal electrical currents in cells.

Study identifies multiple roles of glucose metabolism in platelet activation and survival Platelets.

We discovered that blood sugar metabolism is quite critical over the entire life routine of platelets-from creation, to what they actually in the torso, to the way they get cleared from your physical body, says E. Dale Abel, MD, PhD, teacher and DEO of inner medicine on the UI Carver University of Medication and director from the Fraternal Purchase of Eagles Diabetes Study Center on the UI. Two proteins-glucose transporter 1 and GLUT3-are necessary for blood sugar to enter platelets. Abel and his co-workers studied genetically constructed mouse models which were lacking GLUT1 and GLUT3 or GLUT3 by itself and noticed how platelet development, function, and clearance had been affected.

Researchers record in a report posted in Lancet Oncology of just one 1.

Weight problems is connected with elevated inflammation, that could improve the efficiency of checkpoint blockade medications that unleash an immune system response against malignancy. The sex-specificity from the observed differences points to a potential hormonal mediator. Unwanted fat tissue creates an enzyme known as aromatase that changes male hormones known as androgens into estrogens, feminine hormones. Maybe this happens plenty of in obese males to greatly help them obvious some form of hurdle toward better survival, McQuade stated. The experts are collaborating with researchers at the College or university of Pennsylvania which have discovered that turning on an extremely specific kind of estrogen receptor on melanoma helps it be susceptible to immunotherapy.

In severe pediatric heart defect.

‘We have lengthy known that kids with single-ventricle disease possess a strong threat of poor neurologic final results after surviving staged surgical reconstruction,’ stated pediatric cardiologist Tag A. Fogel, MD, major investigator of the analysis group from Children’s Medical center of Philadelphia and Movie director of Cardiac Magnetic Resonance. ‘This is the first research to gauge the occurrence of human brain abnormalities through the entire three phases of surgery, also to investigate a relationship between cerebral bloodstream mind and stream lesions.’ The extensive research, published in Flow, was a single-center, Country wide Institutes of Wellness sponsored study of 168 single-ventricle patients who underwent staged surgical reconstruction at CHOP between 2009 and 2014.

They choose family occasionally.

Anterograde memory space complications get rid of in just a few days generally, but retrograde complications can linger; thoughts created within 3-6 a few months of ECT will be the most susceptible. Kellner stated. Hermida, MD, a geriatric ECT and psychiatrist specialist at Emory College or university, Atlanta. Dr. Adriana P. Hermida In general, cognitive memory space and problems reduction are not as likely with unilateral treatment than with bilateral, and least likely with ultra-brief unilateral treatment. Hermida stated. The speakers had no relevant industry disclosures.. Continue reading

Also called ALS or Lou Gehrigs disease.

In cases of ALS, RNA isn’t prepared correctly, and leading to electric motor neuron dysfunction,’ said Daniela Zarnescu, associate professor in the Department of Cellular and Molecular Biology. Research workers in Zarnescu’s laboratory have been looking into TDP-43’s participation in neurodegenerative illnesses for a long time. Using fruits flies being a model organism to unravel the molecular pathways in the cell, Alyssa N. Coyne, a doctoral pupil in Zarnescu’s laboratory when the analysis was conducted, determined the merchandise that outcomes from the hereditary blueprint chauffeured by TDP-43: another proteins, called Hsc70-4. This proteins assists nerves effectively talk to muscle groups. The genetics of fruit flies have become well understood, and researchers can readily generate a strain of flies that carries mutations within a gene whose role they would like to study.

Congos Ebola not an international emergency.

CONTACTS The Who was simply heavily criticised to be too slow to declare a global crisis during an outbreak in Western Africa in 2013 to 2016. That epidemic pass on through Guinea primarily, Sierra Liberia and Leone. It killed a lot more than 11,300 people and contaminated 28,600. Among the complications then was finding people who have been in touch with Ebola sufferers to avoid them growing the deadly disease.

But doctors must know that their extremely autonomy sets them able to succeed.
