Arulanandam, BernardBiologyCOSbernard.arulanandam@utsa.eduVaccine immunity; reproductive biology; respiratory biology;Microbiology & immunology, microbial pathogenesis, vaccine development, biochemistry, environmental toxicology. Our collective research goal to understand how exposure to oil/Corexit mixtures may alter (A) key innate and adaptive immune parameters, (B) influence susceptibility to respiratory pathogens, and (C) alter the protective immune response to prototypic bacterial (pneumococcal-PspA) and viral (seasonal influenza-H1N1) subunit vaccines. The information gathered from this investigation will provide insight as to whether exposure to these compounds alters fundamental immune responses that induce long-term immunity to prototypic vaccines used in the human population. Application of Bioremediation to the BP Gulf Crude Oil SpilBioremediation, exploiting the hydrocarbon degrading capabilities of microorganisms to convert toxic oil constituents to nontoxic metabolites, is a proven technology for treatment of crude oil spills following conventional mechanical cleanup operations. Successful oil spill bioremediation requires not only that microbes with the appropriate degradative activities are present, but that conditions are optimized to permit the most rapid rates of growth and contaminant degradation by those microbes. We have developed a rapid high-throughput screen for characterization and optimization of biostimulation (through nutrient addition, emulsification of different crude components, etc.) for microbial degradation of the crude oil and its principle toxic constituents from the variety of contaminated sites impacted by the spill. This screen also permits the isolation and characterization of microbial degraders for possible direct application to contaminated sites using the technology of bioaugmentation.

Bach, Stephan BChemistryCOSstephen.bach@utsa.edu The primary focus of this laboratory is the development of analytical techniques in support of medicinal and environmental chemistry. Analytical chemistry plays a vital role in the discovery, development, and application of chemistry to human and environmental health. We use various mass spectrometric based techniques such as GCMS, LCMS, MALDI-TOF to develop novel and to improve current chemical detection and characterization methodologies. We can contribute in the areas of technology improvements for characterization and improved detection as well as determining the chemical evolution of the degradation of the contaminants. This data will then play a key role in the modeling and determination of the ultimate fate and transport of the contaminants.

Baumann, Michael RPsychologyCOLFAmichael.baumann@utsa.eduTeam processes / decision making involving risk. Understanding the Deepwater Horizon event and preventing its repetition requires understanding the decision making processes involved. The organizational literature has identified the importance of safety culture / climate in similar events, and has suggested group and team processes may often influence the evaluation and recognition (or failure to recognize) the risks. The final evaluation of the impact of Deepwater Horizon will itself be influenced by team processes and their impact on evaluation of risk. Dr. Baumann can assist by conducting studies to examine (1) possible failures in process that led to the series of poor decisions directly responsible for the Deepwater Horizon and (2) to examine how researchers from disparate fields interact to pool their opinions in evaluating the extent of the damage and risk of another such event occurring. Dr. Baumann has applied his knowledge of groups and teams to similar questions on NASA funded projects and decision making in firefighters.

Chambers, JamesBIOLOGY DEPARTMENTCOLLEGE OF SCIENCESjames.chambers@utsa.edu Microbiology & immunology, microbial pathogenesis, vaccine development, biochemistry, environmental toxicology. Our collective research goal to understand how exposure to oil/Corexit mixtures may alter (A) key innate and adaptive immune parameters, (B) influence susceptibility to respiratory pathogens, and (C) alter the protective immune response to prototypic bacterial (pneumococcal-PspA) and viral (seasonal influenza-H1N1) subunit vaccines. The information gathered from this investigation will provide insight as to whether exposure to these compounds alters fundamental immune responses that induce long-term immunity to prototypic vaccines used in the human population.

Ellison, ChristopherSociologyCOLFAchristopher.ellison@utsa.edu(a) religious influences on mental and physical health; (b) religious influences on health behaviors and healthy lifestyles; and (c) the role of religion in shaping sexual behavior and family formation. It occurs to me that this line of work might fit with the interest in HD. With respect to (b) and (c), there is virtually no information in the research literature in the US on the impact of the growth of (mainly evangelical) Protestantism among Latinos on health practices such as alcohol consumption, other risk-taking practices, and maternal and child health outcomes, although anecdotal evidence --and studies from elsewhere in Latin America-- suggest that this may be a substantial factor.

Guentzel , M. Neal BIOLOGY DEPARTMENTCOLLEGE OF SCIENCESneal.guentzel@utsa.edu Application of Bioremediation to the BP Gulf Crude Oil SpilBioremediation, exploiting the hydrocarbon degrading capabilities of microorganisms to convert toxic oil constituents to nontoxic metabolites, is a proven technology for treatment of crude oil spills following conventional mechanical cleanup operations. Successful oil spill bioremediation requires not only that microbes with the appropriate degradative activities are present, but that conditions are optimized to permit the most rapid rates of growth and contaminant degradation by those microbes. We have developed a rapid high-throughput screen for characterization and optimization of biostimulation (through nutrient addition, emulsification of different crude components, etc.) for microbial degradation of the crude oil and its principle toxic constituents from the variety of contaminated sites impacted by the spill. This screen also permits the isolation and characterization of microbial degraders for possible direct application to contaminated sites using the technology of bioaugmentation.

Haschenburger, JudithGeological SciencesCOSjudy.haschenburger@utsa.edu The ultimate fate of contaminants depends partly on the interface between terrestrial and marine systems. Sediment fluxes from rivers are a major contributor to the sediment supply of near shore environments and thus will influence the fate of contaminants. My research experience includes understanding and estimating river fluxes, including work on the San Antonio River.

Klose, KarlBiologyCOSkarl.klose@utsa.edu Effect of Oil Contaminant Exposure on Microbial Pathogen Ecology in the Gulf coast Region Pathogenesis of Vibrio species: My laboratory studies the pathogenesis of Vibrio cholerae, the causative agent of the human disease cholera, and a natural inhabitant of the marine environment, specifically the Gulf Coast region. V. cholerae and other Vibrio species cause a variety of diseases in humans as well as fish, shellfish, and even corals. Vibrio species persist in the marine environment in biofilms, a bacterial community resistant to various environmental stresses. Changes in the amount and variety of Vibrio species in the marine environment leads to increased disease in both humans and marine inhabitants, including seafood products and even corals. We propose to study the effect of the BP contaminants on the virulence and biofilm formation of V. cholerae as a model marine pathogen, to determine if the presence of these contaminants will have an impact on the disease potential of bacterial pathogens present in the Gulf Coast region.

Murray, KyleGEOLOGICAL SCIENCESCOLLEGE OF SCIENCESkyle.murray@utsa.edu Our research has examined the distribution and fate of industrial compounds including surfactants: nonylphenol (NP) and tert-octylphenol (OP), plasticizers: diethyl phthalate (DEP) and bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP), and flame retardants: 2,2?,4,4?-Tetrabromodiphenyl ether (BDE-47) and 2,2?,4,4?,5-Pentabromodiphenyl ether (BDE-99) (Murray et al., 2010). These industrial compounds pose significant threats to human health and the environment at low concentrations, and may have been introduced to the Gulf of Mexico waters during efforts to control fire, seal the well, or contain and capture petroleum-related compounds released from the well. My experience with assessing environmental pollution and building geographic information systems (GIS) databases could contribute to a regional-scale environmental sampling and analysis effort of the BP Deepwater Horizon incident. Research in our laboratory has examined the environmental conditions that are most suitable for growth of algae as potential sources of biomass/biofuel (Murray et al., 2010-Biomass production and nutrient uptake). Because algae are critical primary producers in the food chain they can be indicators of ecosystem health. I propose that a literature review of algae abundance and diversity prior to the BP Deepwater Horizon incident would be a valuable measure of the baseline health of the Gulf ecosystem. Additionally, a study of present day and future algae abundance and diversity could be a key scientific measure of ecosystem recovery. This type of study may contribute not only to a greater understanding of ecosystem health and recovery, but also could establish the viability of algae strands that are robust in this region of the world and have potential as renewable energy sources.

Niu, JianweiCOMPUTER SCIENCE DEPARTMENTDEAN - COLLEGE OF SCIENCESJIANWEI.NIU@UTSA.EDUHer research interest is in applying mathematically rigorous specification and verification techniques (formal methods) to improve software dependability. In particular, she has contributed to two problem areas. The first is using rigorous means to design security and privacy policies, authorization decision engines, and enforcement mechanisms. She then applies automated and, where needed, manual techniques to verify correctness of policies, decision procedures, and enforcement mechanisms. Her second research area concerns formalizing the semantics of modeling notations that provide software practitioners the ability to generate specifications that can be verified. The modeling notations she studies are used commonly to describe the dynamic behavior of software systems, including statecharts variants, process algebras, UML state machines, and UML sequence diagrams. Her research has been supported by grants from NSF, NHARP, Microsoft, NSA(through CMU subcontract), and UTSA TRAC awards.

Our laboratory could contribute in the modeling, simulation, and development of a necessary and sufficient instrumentation payload for distributed autonomous vehicles to work collectively. In addition, the control code could be deployed on a variety of platforms (currently we have ten small AUVs) as proof of concept experiments, hardware-in-the-loop, demonstrations, and field experiments.

This would basically set up a monitoring system for disease incidence in workers and residents of the region that were exposed to oil or oil fumes. We could contribute statistical methodology and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Technology to the research effort. This would allow for hot spots of disease to be detected and focused health policies to be implemented to aid the affected areas. Also there would be a survey data collection process to evaluate the economic impact of the spill on the lives of the residents of the Gulf region, which could also serve as a basis for a case-control study of human health including related health and psychosocial stress. Also the Texas State Data Center could provide demographic data and COPP has a GIS lab with four Dell workstations that would be useful for these activities.

Seshu, JanakiramBIOLOGY DEPARTMENTCOLLEGE OF SCIENCESj.seshu@utsa.eduPathogenesis of Gut Spirochetes There is a dire need to determine the effects of the recent crude oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico and chemicals used in its dissipation on the microbiota of the gastrointestinal tract in order to prepare for outcomes that could have significant impact on the health of human and animal populations affected by the spill. A potential problem with the current catastrophic oil spill is the possibility of widespread low dose contamination of the food and water supply with the components of the crude oil or the dispersants, such as Corexit, used to remediate the spill along the Gulf Coast. A major focus of my laboratory is on the biology and pathogenic mechanisms of spirochetes pertaining to the agent of Lyme disease. We propose to determine the effect of low dose oil contamination and chemical dispersants on the ecology of gut spirochetes using our well-established mouse models of disease and other state of the art molecular methodologies. Several of these procedures have been established in our laboratory with the requisite expertise to achieve the goals of this proposal.

Yacaman, Miguel Jose Physics & Astronomy COSmiguel.yacaman@utsa.edu Asphaltenes, the heaviest fraction of crude oil, are defined as being soluble in toluene and insoluble in n-heptane. Asphaltenes are of growing importance in the oil industry as the light crude reserves begin to deplete, leading to a shift toward heavier reserves containing higher percentages of asphaltenes. Asphaltenes are problematic because they precipitate out in pipelines and foul catalysts during crude oil processing, leading to increased maintenance costs. In addition the effect of asphaltenes in oil spills is one of the most lasting ones. Damage produced on Mexican gulf coast by the Ixtoc spill of the eighties is still present today. Sand contaminated with asphaltenes can be found very easily. An increased knowledge of asphaltenes is necessary in order to study its degradation. In this work we propose to use high resolution STEM microscopy to perform a structural analysis of this material. We will use the equivalent of low angle diffraction in the TEM plus reconstructed images of amorphous areas. Our group has extensive experience on this topic and has published on the past several papers on the topic. This research can result in very valuable information for beach remediation methods.

Ye, Jing Yong Biomedical EngineeringCOEjingyong.ye@utsa.eduDevelop a new laser-based technology for detecting the oil slick thickness. I could contribute to designing and constructing a new laser-based oil spill remote sensor for the measurement of oil slick thickness. It is important to measure the dynamics of oil slick spreading in order to obtain accurate estimates of oil spill quantity. This will help the spill responder make effective spill countermeasures to mitigate the potentially disastrous effects of an oil spill on sensitive marine and coastal environments.
