A discourse in Genetics By MARY AM T ASNIF Assistant Entertainment Editor and RICHARD SHARE staff writer Diana K. Lavell is the first, and currently the only, fe- male faculty member of State Uni- versity College at Cortland's Bio- logical Sciences Department. Her field is one of the most interesting of all the sciences- Genetics. Genetics is the field of study responsible for selected breading techniques of champion horses and dogs; and for breeding quality livestock. Genetics deter- mine the parentage of a child when it is not known, It also explains why children look like their par- ents. and so much more. l · Lavett received both her Bachelor's Degree and her Ode- • torate from Atlantic Emory Uni- versity.

Her personal interests include cross-country skiing. writ- ing short stories, and practicing her religion. Genetics counseling is an important and informative form of therapy for couples that have or are at risk of having an ahnor- mal child. Couples are at risk if their family histories include such inherited traits as Downs Syn- drome. hemophilia and color blindness. These couples need to know the probability of transmit- ting such traits. Couples that have abnormal children should know the chance of healthy children; and often they need to cope with and learn to rove the affected child. The genetics counselor monitors the family for such parental in- discretions as abuse and neglect. Lavett has written ar- ticles in various scientific and legal journals. She has also au- thored and co-authored genetics text books; and has published articles on Physical Therapy, an interest she developed after expe- riencing several back injuries herself. expert witness on genetics and scientific procedures in criminal cases across the country. As a direct result of her involvement in this. the FBI has been forced to upgrade its standards of record- keeping and examination of evi- dence. Being an expert witnes~ is both physically and mentally demanding for Lavett; and it requires her to travel out of state about six times a semester. Despite the demands. she perse- veres; she feels it is. her obliga- tion as a scientist to prevent and misuse of genetics. Shefeel.\By doing this.

When asked how she fits everything in to her schedule, she replied,\ I am very efficient~ that's how I find thetime.\ We gave herac~ance to speak a few words of advise for students. \Quit playing so much,\ she said. \Many students will be affected later on in life by what they do now.
