Science major tops university’s first WiSys Quick Pitch competition

He earns spot in finals at UW-Parkside against other UW System winners

Menomonie, Wis. – A senior from Spooner took first place in University of Wisconsin-Stout’s first WiSys Quick Pitch competition held May 2 at the Memorial Student Center.

Richard Shipman presented on “Small, Bioactive Protein and Peptide Isolation from Crab Shell Byproducts Using Dialysis and Tricine Gel Separation.”

The elevator-pitch-style competition invites students to present their research and its relevance in three minutes. The event serves as an opportunity for students to practice relaying the importance and impact of their research in an effective way that is understandable to a broad audience.

Shipman’s project, a collaboration with the University of Maine, involves extracting proteins from crab shell waste and enriching them because they could have calcium-binding functions and antimicrobial properties. His goal is to see if the proteins have properties that could help prevent tooth decay.

The process is “done by replicating a paleontology paper that detailed the extraction of proteins from dinosaur bones. This method allowed us to successfully extract the proteins from the shell and separate them out for analysis with tricine gel, which allows use to identify proteins based on molecular weight,” Shipman said.

The study is still ongoing, Shipman said.

Winners of WiSys Quick Pitch competitions at each UW System campus are invited to the state final
during the Wisconsin Science and Technology Symposium on Monday, July 30, and Tuesday, July 31, at

Learningpdf He stood there for a long time. Tami 98-367 test Joan and John desperately retreated until they reached the other side of the door, holding two sweaty bodies tightly together. The drivers hand bent into the shape of a cup, blocking the lights shone on the street light, looked 98-367 test at them more carefully. Suddenly, a loud noise echoed in the air. Tameron could not help but constricted a while, and 98-367 test John made a short, screaming scream. Behind the driver, the air in Prepexamwell the 200-125 Exam Dumps distance was filled with bright red and blue flame stripes 300-101 Dumps Exam instantly. Then again is a few roar Prepexamwell and scream. The driver turns and looks up, just to see a huge, orange-red cobweb over the city. It was 300-101 Dumps Exam 200-125 Exam Dumps a Learningpdf fireworks, and Tamie Learningpdf remembered the news read in the newspaper. It is a gift from the host and the Secretary-General of the United Nations 300-101 Dumps Exam to the delegates attending 300-101 Dumps Exam the conference and welcomes them to this great city on Earth. The driver turned toward 300-101 Dumps Exam the taxi again. Pat soon, he opened the door lock, slowly opened the door. 2 As usual, the informant did not 300-101 Dumps Exam leave a name. 200-125 Exam Dumps Therefore, there is no other way Prepexamwell to pour back into the past to understand what the reporter said is a piece of open space. The headquarters radio said He said it was on the 37th Street near Eleventh Street. Prepexamwell Those at the Notification Center never 200-125 Exam Dumps figured out where 300-101 Dumps Exam the exact location of the murder was. Although it is nine oclock in the morning, 300-101 Dumps Exam it has made people sweat more than hot. Emilia Shakes lay aside a tall grass thatch. She is conducting a search of light – a jargon of crime scene investigators – searching for suspicious objects with an S-shaped route. 200-125 Exam Dumps Learningpdf Nothing Learningpdf at all She Learningpdf looked down at the intercom on the dark blue uniform shirt. Patrolman 5885 calls headquarters without 98-367 test any notice. Do you have any 300-101 Dumps Exam further news The dispatcher replied in a bumpy noise 200-125 Exam Dumps 5885, there is 98-367 test no more information 98-367 test about the scene of the crime 98-367 test at the moment, but one thing The informant said he hoped the 200-125 Exam Dumps victim was dead. Please 200-125 Exam Dumps say it again, headquarters. The complainant said he hoped the victim was already dead. He said it would be best if so. Finished. Hopefully the victim Dead Shakes struggled across a broken barbed wire and began searching for another piece of open space. Still 98-367 test not found. She wants to leave. Just call 10-90, report that without any discovery, you can return to 200-125 Exam Dumps the Si Si area, it is her daily patrol area. Her knees hurt 98-367 test and she 200-125 Exam Dumps felt as if she had been roasted on a terrible August day. She just wanted to slip 98-367 test to the Port Authority and get stuck with Learningpdf the Little Furrier there and come back to a large can 200-125 Exam Dumps of Arizona iced tea. Then, at eleven thirty – just two hours now – she was able to clear the drawers in the Prepexamwell south section of Midtown and 300-101 Dumps Exam go to the lower town for training. But she finally did not do this. She Learningpdf can not leave this briefing without answering the phone call. As she continued 98-367 test to move on, she walked along the hot Prepexamwell sidewalk through the path between the two abandoned 98-367 test apartments Prepexamwell and into another covered, planted area. She slid her slender forefinger down into her flat-top hat and scratched it with irresistible restraints through layers of long, red hair on her head. In order to scratch more scalp, she simply faded her cap side, while crazy scratch. Sweat streaming down her forehead, itchy, so she fiercely blew a few brows.

He hurriedly recorded his conversation in a black book with a sweaty pen. Oh, just do it. Now, go to those trash Learningpdf cans, stay there Prepexamwell and direct the traffic until the Learningpdf entire street is clear. Did you Prepexamwell hear that She turned and left without saying anything 300-101 Dumps Exam good or not, A street, began to slowly 98-367 test 300-101 Dumps Exam move a few trash cans. Every driver who passed by her glared at her, and some mumbled in 200-125 Exam Dumps her 98-367 test mouth. Shakes Learningpdf glanced at the watch. Another hour I 200-125 Exam Dumps can hold on. 3 The peregrine falcon gently waving Learningpdf a few 300-101 Dumps Exam wings, landing in the 98-367 test edge of the windowsill. Outside the window, noon the sun bright and dazzling, 300-101 Dumps Exam the weather seems to be extremely hot. Finally, the man murmured, turning his head to the Prepexamwell buzzing Learningpdf doorbell and looking at the door to the 200-125 Exam Dumps downstairs. Is he He shouted at the staircase, is it Lincoln Lyme turned his head to the window again without hearing any answer. The peregrine falcons head turned a little and moved very fast, just like a spasm, immediately 300-101 Dumps Exam returning to the original elegant gesture of keeping. Prepexamwell Lyme noticed Prepexamwell the blood stained its paw, and a piece of yellowish flesh was pulled by its small, black, nut shell-like beak. It stretches short neck, move slowly to the nest, the action is reminiscent of not a bird, but a snake. The peregrine Falcon dropped the meat into the small mouth of a blue-winged bird. What I now see is the only creature in New York City without any natural enemies, Lyme thought. Maybe God 300-101 Dumps Exam except God. He heard footsteps, and someone was walking up the stairs. Is he He Learningpdf asked Thomas. The young man answered, No. Who is that The doorbell rang, is not it Thomass eyes looked at the window. The bird is back.Look, theres blood on your windowsill.Do you see them The female peregrine faltered slowly into Lymes gaze. A blue-gray feather, Learningpdf gorgeous like fish. It is looking up, looking back and forth toward the sky. They are always together, will they be with them for life Exclaimed Thomas. Like a geese Lymes eyes returned to Thomas. The latter was bowing his Prepexamwell strong, young waist forward, looking through the window, which was splashed 200-125 Exam Dumps with rain. Who is here Lyme asked 200-125 Exam Dumps again. He was annoyed by the deliberate delay of young people. Visitors. Visitors Ha Lyme snorted. He tried to recall when the last guest visit was. That is at least three months ago. Who was the guest last visited Maybe those reporters, or a distant relatives. Thats right, its Peter Chter, a spine neurologist in Lyme. Blaine has been here several times, but she certainly can not be a visitor. Its 98-367 test so cold here, complains Prepexamwell Tommy, reaching out to open the window at the same time. Young typical performance. Lyme thought. Do not open the window, he ordered, well, tell me whos coming Its cold. Youre going to scare the bird.You can turn off the air conditioner.Ill be closed. Lets open again, Prepexamwell said Tangmajas forcefully to lift the thick wooden frame of the window. The two birds got accustomed to playing since they moved in. Hearing the noise, the two peregrine falcons Learningpdf turned their heads and widened their eyes to the source Prepexamwell of the noise. But they were just wide-eyed, still on the edge of the bay windows, overlooking monarchs overlooking the collapsed ginkgo trees in their territory and the car parked on both sides of the street. Lyme asked again Whos coming Leon Salet. Leon What did he do Thomas looked back and forth at the room.
