Prairie Projects

PRAIRIE PROJECTS

The Hutchcroft Prairie, located just west of the Rockford University main entrance, is a project to reconstruct two acres of native tall grass prairie habitat for use as a “living laboratory” and “biological sanctuary.” Initial work on the project began in 2003, and the first stage of planting was done in May of 2006.

This all-volunteer project has been assisted by Rockford University students, faculty and staff, as well as members of the greater Rockford community. Major contributions to the effort have come from Rockford Area Boy Scouts. Boy Scout Matt Holm of Rockton, along with several troop mates and family assisted in the seeding in May 2006 as part of an effort to earn the Hornaday Conservation Award, and two Eagle Scout projects by brothers Daniel and John Lieb of Rockford resulted in the construction of planter beds for a butterfly garden and benches that will be placed around the prairie.

Though in its early stages, the prairie has already been the site of a Rockford University biology student research project, and has been used as a resource for several biology classes.

ALPHA-HELIX

Alpha-Helix at Rockford University exists to bring students interested in all areas of science together to talk, learn more about their future careers and schools, and to help give back to the community. We seek to unify our students and work together to make Rockford University a better place. We welcome students from all sciences, of all ages, and working on any degree.

Goals

  • Integrate science goals and studies into future careers
  • Help students learn more about how they can get the careers they want and into the graduate/professional schools they want
  • Aid students in volunteer work to give back

 

Highlighted Events

  • BANG! The kick-off of April Weekend where Alpha-Helix members put on an explosion show and collect canned goods for the local food pantry.
  • Seedlings Project. We grow seedlings to eventually donate to the food pantry for fresh foods for families and individuals in need.
  • Visit UIC Pharmacy at Chicago in Rockford. Students go to UIC to learn about how to get into Pharmacy School and what it is like when you get there.

Alpha-Helix promotes the sciences within the Rockford University community and provides programs, services, and events of interest pertaining to the sciences. This group is dedicated to advancing the educational opportunities and experiences for students interested in pursuing health and science professions. Whether you’re familiar with science or just want to learn a bit more about us, Alpha-Helix is the place to be! The club meets on the third floor of Starr. We welcome everyone!

Dr. Troy Skwor is a native Midwesterner from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He joined Rockford University CBS Department in Fall 2011 and teaches a variety of courses including Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (BIOL 230), Microbiology (BIOL 308), Genetics (BIOL 333), Immunology (BIOL 358), Virology (BIOL 360), Molecular Biology, Oncology, Molecular Mechanisms of Microbial Pathogenesis, and Principles of Biology lab (BIOL 150).

His research primarily focuses on bacteria associated with human diseases. One aspect of his research is analyzing the prevalence of antibiotic resistance from bacterial populations within the Rock River and the effect of different human and agricultural contaminants on resistant levels. These studies utilize microbial and molecular techniques identifying molecular genes associated with antibiotic resistance and furthermore determine if these bacteria can potentially cause human disease. Another research area of Dr. Skwor's lab is developing alternative treatments to combat multiple drug resistant bacterial populations and cancer using visible light with different photosensitizers, also known as photodynamic therapy.

She writes, “My residency is an optional full-time postgraduate training opportunity that provides about three years of work experience within one year. I chose to do a managed care residency because I really enjoyed my time at Caremark during a six-week rotation and wanted to get a broader scope of experience in the field. Areas of focus include: drug information and formulary management, appeals decision coverage, and education and program development. I will have the opportunity for travel and will complete a research project over the course of the year.”

CHEMICAL AND BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES

Chemistry and Biochemistry

Whether you want to go into research, become a doctor or teach high school science, you know one thing is certain:  you want to study chemistry or biochemistry. To prepare yourself for all the options, you’ll need more than just a scientific method – you’ll need the broad-based studies of a liberal arts university to complement your science education.

Biology

We live in an age of constant scientific discovery–a world shaped by revolutionary new technologies, many of which require an understanding of biology. Biologically-related topics regularly make the news including the human genome project, global climate change, pollution, environmental concerns, species diversity, genetics and rapid advances in medicine and biotechnology. These are only some of the interests of biologists in today’s world. As human understanding of the self and the surrounding world has expanded, we have begun to understand the importance of all the organisms that share the world in which we live.
