Spiro Hall

62356scr_fca2b88abe328f7Housing our computer center, and the Wagner College Planetarium, Spiro Hall is one of several classroom buildings on campus. Spiro Hall, like all our classroom buildings, has recently benefited from complete renovation. The Computer Center provides all students with access to a variety of computer facilities and includes fully equipped PC and Mac lab. Supplied with the latest technologies, these facilities are continuously updated. The Spiro Center serves as a resource for students, as either an addition or alternative to a student's personal computer. Staffed by a full time professional manager, the Center is also staffed by students who are able to assist with questions or problems.

The Wagner Planetarium is one of three in the New York City area. The other two are the Hayden Planetarium at the Museum of Natural History and the planetarium at Columbia University. The Planetarium is open to the public and serves as an educational tool, both for Wagner students, and for elementary, middle and high school students on Staten Island.

Kaufman Repage Lecture

October 3 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The annual Kaufman Repage Lecture will be delivered by Dr. Martin Picard of Columbia University.

He is the principal investigator at Columbia’s Mitochondrial Signaling Lab. Dr. Picard received his BSc Honours in neuroimmunology at McGill University in 2007. He remained at McGill for his graduate work with Drs. Taivassalo, Hepple, and Burelle and obtained his PhD in mitochondrial biology of aging in 2012. Dr. Picard then moved to the University of Pennsylvania for a postdoctoral fellowship in the Center for Mitochondrial and Epigenomic Medicine with Doug Wallace. There, he worked on mitochondria-mitochondria interactions, mitochondrial reprogramming of the nuclear transcriptome, and mitochondrial stress pathophysiology along with Bruce McEwen. In 2015, he joined the faculty at Columbia University.

Dr. Picard’s translational research program investigates the mechanisms by which acquired and inherited mitochondrial defects contribute to the damaging effects of metabolic and neuroendocrine stressors. His laboratory addresses this question by combining genetic and molecular manipulation of mitochondrial structure and functions, with systems biology approaches to capture meaningful patterns of (dys)regulation. Experimental systems used in his research include cellular, animal, and human disease models. Dr. Picard’s work integrates knowledge from basic mitochondrial biology, neuroscience, stress physiology, and mitochondrial medicine to explore conserved organizing principles of mitochondrial signal transduction, and examine the underlying mechanisms operating across levels of complexity – from organelle to organism

Poetry Reading by Alumna Maria Giura

October 11 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

In her last poetry collection, Maria Giura writes richly and candidly about growing up an Italian-American Catholic from her earliest days as the daughter of immigrant parents and a workaholic father to her coming of age and onward into adulthood where she works at reconciling the natural and the divine.

Giura, a Wagner alumna, will read her poetry and meet the students/audience for a Q&A.

Voices/Voci: Italian Jewish Exiles

October 23 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Gianna Pontercoboli, Italian-born journalist, U.N. correspondent, and author of "Americordo: The Italian Jewish Exiles in America." Forced to leave by rising persecution, 1,000 Italian Jews came to America to continue their work, from mathematics to music. Pontercoboli retraces their strategies to secure a visa, weave networks of support and confront fascism and anti-fascism in the U.S. Four of those who remained in America won the Nobel prize, while others built enduring bridges between America and Italy.
