Title: MicroRNA Profiling During Bone Fracture Repair
Abstract: Fracture repair is a complex process that involves multiple biological processes requiring spatiotemporal expression of thousands of genes. The molecular regulation of this process is not completely understood. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) regulate gene expression by promoting mRNA degradation or blocking translation. Thus, we performed a complete profiling of all known miRNAs during the early (14 days) phases of physiological fracture repair, as modeled in the mouse femur. Our data demonstrate that hundreds of miRNAs are differentially expressed and regulated during the fracture repair process. Bioinformatics analyses show many thousands of target mRNAs involving many biological processes. Taken together, these data provide the first complete analysis of miRNA expression during fracture repair and will aid in deciphering some of the molecular mechanisms responsible for the early phases of this tissue regenerative process.

NYIT Students Make A Difference In Youth’s Lives
During the fall of 2015, NYIT partnered with The Viscardi Center to create the Viscardi Industry Project, a unique, interdisciplinary course where NYIT Computer Science, Business, and Fine Art students brought together their skills to serve the needs of Viscardi youth in the form of collaborative projects. This course was team-taught by Computer Science Professor Richard Simpson, Business & Management Professor Joanne Scillitoe, and Fine Arts Professor Yuko Oda. Read more.

Larry Jaffee, assistant professor of communication arts, NYIT-MA campus, and students from his ADVG 240 Advertising Copywriting class recently toured the offices of McCann, a leading global advertising agency network. Students viewed creative work, and then had a Q&A session with Creative Director, Carlos Wigle, and Copywriter, Jill Menor. Both gave advice to how the students should help launch their careers in advertising, and what they should do to take advantage of internship opportunities.

John Hanc Publishes Stories
John Hanc, associate professor, communication arts, NYIT-OW, recently published two stories in the Giving section of of the New York Times
(dealing with trends in philanthropy, volunteerism, etc.). One is about the impact of the LGBT audience in fundraising
, and includes a powerful case study from the Girl Scouts. The other, about the magnificent but overlooked National World War I Memorial and Museum in Kansas City
, is a story of crowd funding, 1920s-style.
Hanc also published an inspiring Newsday cover story
about the first African American physician in the Long Island suburbs, whose son (afflicted with cerebral palsy) also became a physician.
