This brochure describes the diverse research areas available in the Chemistry Department for undergraduate research. Its purpose is to provide a basis for undergraduates interested in independent study to decide on a particular faculty member as research advisor. Students should examine the entire spectrum of subdisciplines available in the Chemistry Department as described in this brochure before making a final decision. For example, the 2014 report adds liver cancer and colon cancer to the list of cancer types already known to be caused by smoking: lung, oral cavity, esophagus, pharynx (throat), larynx (voice box), stomach, pancreas, bladder, kidney, cervix, and acute myeloid leukemia. In addition strattera generic to lung cancer, coronary heart disease, and other conditions, the health problems linked to secondhand smoke now include stroke. For the first time ever, women are as likely as men to die from lung cancer. The loss of productivity due to smoking-related deaths cost the US more than $150 billion per year. This is not something the federal government can do alone. We need to partner with the business community, local elected officials, schools and universities, the medical community, the faith community, and committed citizens in communities across the country to make the next generation tobacco free.

A student-led Public Interest Working Group also worked closely with the administration on the recommendations. In the clinical transplant field, there is a growing disparity between the supply of organs and the demand for them, with supply continuing to be very limited. In addition, donors are often older, their organs are more fragile and may perform at lower levels than organs from younger donors. Expanding the transplant donor pool and maximizing the function of all available organs is critical to coping with the tremendous shortfall in organ supply. It is useful to discuss the risk factors and therapeutic modalities with all persons involved in such cases. Approximately twice as many patients with severe diseases, such as multi-organ failure and AKI, die in intensive care units when compared with patients without AKI. These patients die not as a result of AKI, but because of the different complications that follow AKI. More of controlled studies should be done to improve the clinical outcome and decrease the high costs of this therapeutic method.

ProGen Study Group #5

Tuesday, 7 Oct 2008 | by Mark Tucker

It is hard to believe that we have finished our fifth and now sixth month of the study group.  I am a little behind in reporting month five. Here is a link back to ProGen Study Group #4.

Our reading assignment from Professional Genealogy was:

  • Chapter 6 – Executing Contracts by Patricia Gilliam Hastings J.D.
  • Chapter 10 – Setting Realistic Fees by Sandra Hargreaves Luebking

In chapter 6, the author discusses the need for a contract and breaks it down into its essential elements.  The chapter gives two sample formal contracts for genealogical lecturing and research services.  As a less formal alternative, there is a sample agreement for genealogical research services in letter form.

In chapter 10 we read about the process of setting realistic fees:

  1. Identify annual salary needs
  2. Calculate annual expenses
  3. Set a profit margin over and above salary
  4. Determine billable hours
  5. Calculate hourly fee
  6. Evaluate and adjust


Practical Assignment

This month the assignment came in two parts:

Part 1 (Chapter 6)

The assignment was to write a draft of a client contract.  I found the contract for the genealogical lecturing services more interesting.  I did my first presentation earlier this year at BYU’s Family History Technology Workshop and will be presenting at a local conference in November put on by My Ancestors Found.  In both those cases, the conference already defined the terms of the contract.  I came across a page on the FGS site that outlines their policy for conference speakers.

So it appears that most (if not all) conferences already have a predefined contract for speakers.  I suppose you might need to write your own contract if you were seeking speaking engagements at local and state genealogical societies.  I don’t see this in the near future, but when that time comes I will probably combine the example from Elizabeth Shown Mills on page 115-117 of Professional Genealogy with the policy from FGS.

Part 2 (Chapter 10)

This assignment was to use this formula to set or evaluate the fees we charge our clients: 

Hourly Fee = (Salary + Expenses + Profit) / Billable Hours

 Since research isn’t my emphasis, this formula doesn’t apply.  In commercial software we do need to figure out how much to charge for the piece of software and determine how many software licenses one is likely to sell.  In an attempt to better understand the industry, I contacted the owners of two of the top genealogy software applications and asked a few questions.  Representatives from both companies shared some details about how they got involved with genealogy software, but neither shared any formulas for setting the price for their software.

Discussion Group

We continued to gel as a group and find that the discussion time passes quickly and with much laughter.
