Three MHS Seniors 2003-2004 INTEL Semifinalists
Gregory Amend's project is entitled: The Effect Sea Star Coelomocytes Have On Asteroidea Regeneration Brain Cellular Proliferation in Vitro. His findings and possible future research and testing may have far reaching implications in growing organs for people who may need transplants such as livers and hearts As he explains the project, he took starfish cells called coelomocytes, which aid in the regeneration of starfish rays, and initiated growth of earthworm brain cells. He found that the chemicals produced by the coelomocytes were the regenerative promoters and significantly increased the growth of the earthworm brain cells.
Plandome Fire Department - Small Department, Big Heart
The early morning of Jan. 16 was the coldest in the NY area since records have been kept. As the clock struck 4:30 a.m., most of the Village of Plandome was fast asleep, probably bundled in comforters to stay extra warm. At that moment pagers crackled to life in the homes of the almost 90 members of the Plandome Fire Department "... a basement fire at 20 Rockwood West." This house is one of the oldest homes in the village.
