"LSSU has a great reputation for placing students in graduate and professional schools. Many of my classmates from LSSU are now pursuing graduate and professional studies at some of the finest universities in Canada and the United States."

"The student-faculty interaction and the ability to conduct research at the undergraduate level really helped me to achieve success in a competitive graduate program. My professors at LSSU were always interested in helping us succeed."

Luke Fera of Sault Ste. Marie graduated from LSSU in 2006 with a degree in biology and is now working toward a master's degree in epidemiology at University of Western Ontario in London. He plans to continue his studies in the medical sciences.

http://www.lssu.edu/contacts/staff_images/mwerner.jpg While the importance of DNA for the existence of life on Earth is without question, there are numerous moral, political, legal, and ethical questions that arise with our increasing understanding and manipulation of the genetic material.  This course will provide students with a basic understanding of the discovery, structure, and function of DNA, but more importantly, it will allow students to critically evaluate issues surrounding the “Pandora’s Box” that the study of DNA represents. 

      This course will be designed to give enough technical background that students from all disciplines will appreciate and understand how DNA works.  A detailed knowledge of biochemistry will not be required.  In addition, both science and non-science majors will benefit from detailed discussions regarding the ethical, legal, and moral aspects surrounding this topic.  Unfortunately, most science classes do not address these issues.  For example, the recent Supreme Court decision that prevents the patenting of human genes such as BRCA1 and BRCA2, genes involved in the development of breast and ovarian cancer, provides a springboard to discuss the numerous issues surrounding genetic research and testing.

"Lake Superior State is the only robotics program of its kind in the country. I can work up any research or senior project idea with a professor or my advisor. I studied for a year in Japan through LSSU's connection with the Japan Center for Michigan Universities, and became fluent in Japanese. A Japanese company called Fanuc makes most of the robots in our lab. I'd like to roll my senior research project into a career with Fanuc that bridges the two countries and cultures."
