Alum Success

My education at Lake State taught me not only the basics of exercise science and health and wellness but prepared me for my future research career. I became involved in national organizations, improved my networking skills to create working relationships, and ended up with an amazing paid internship that turned into a 3-year research professional position at the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta, GA. Now in graduate school pursuing a doctorate degree at Virginia Tech, I rely on the knowledge I acquired at Lake State and put it to practice daily while discussing health-related topics in class or conducting obesity and inflammation research in our laboratory.

Attorney — Quite simply, attorneys practice law. What that means depends upon the legal (or non-legal) work environment that one ultimately chooses, along with the area(s) of law in which one practices. The opportunities are endless given the various work environments and the numerous areas of law in which one can specialize. For instance, lawyers practice within private law practices; public interest groups; governmental agencies (federal, state, tribal or local); courts; business and industry (e.g., insurance companies, financial institutions, corporations, hospitals, public relation firms, political campaigns, labor unions, and trade associations); academics (as a law professor, law librarian or administrator); or in various non-legal careers such as the media, law enforcement, business, public relations, foreign service, or politics. In addition, within many of these varied work environments, there are numerous areas of law in which one may specialize.

Career Choices:

  • Trial Lawyer
  • Corporate Counsel
  • Prosecuting Attorney
  • Judge or Magistrate
  • Law School Professor or Administrator
  • Mediator or Arbitrator
  • Federal or State Legislator
  • Public Defender

 

  

 

Character- ization of Yellow Pigments in Freshwater Flavo- bacteria

Ashley Ryckman

The yellow color of Flavobacteria is due to the presence of carotenoids and flexirubin-type pigments. These complex chemical structures have shown to produce antioxidant properties, as well as antibacterial activity. The KOH test and reverse-phase high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) was used to characterize carotenoid and flexirubin pigment production in three strains of Flavorbacteria: FR 87, FR Y, and FR 93. Optimization of pigment and separation was performed by quant-prep HPLC. Separation of four pigment fractions from each strain was attained using semi-prep HPLC. Antibacterial activity of the pigment fractions was tested using a MTT Assay. Fexirubin biosynthesis genes, darA and darB, of related pigment producing Flavobacteria were used to compare flexirubin pigments in FR 87. The three strains were determined to produce the carotenoid, Zeaxanthin. FR 87 produced 13 flexirubin pigments, FR Y produced 14 flexirubin pigments and FR 93 produced 20 flexirubin-type pigments. It was determined that compounds in all three strains demonstrated antibacterial activity. The flexirubin biosynthesis gene, darA, is 89.9% similar to Flavobacterium johnsoniae, and 73.2% similar to Flavobacterium psychrophilum.
