Kissing bugs, which feed on vertebrate blood, are thought to have evolved from the so-called assassin bugs. The assassin bugs feed on and kill other bugs. Dr. Dorn is a contributing author of a recent article testing if kissing bugs can still survive feeding only on other bugs (specifically the hemolymph, the equivalent of blood in insects). Surprisingly, one of three species tested, the largest in the U.S.

Dr. Thomas has surpassed what it means to teach with excellence. In the classroom, she strives to provide students with content in a manner that is both engaging and easy to understand. She has pioneered many courses, including BioInquiry and Foundations of Environmental Science that include curriculums designed to adequately prepare first-year students with the skills essential to a career in science.

Co-facilitators Dr. Joel MacClellan and Dr. Connie Mui led a team of Loyola undergraduates through another successful year of the Philosopher Kids project. The core belief of the program is that there is no age requirement to begin to learn how to think critically and philosophically. Doing philosophy is nothing more than having a series of conversations about those “big ideas,” such as courage, beauty, respect for others, knowledge, and justice.
