7.341 Bench to Bedside: Molecularly Targeted Therapies in Blood Disorders and Malignancy (MIT)
Where do new drugs and treatments come from? This class will take you from the test tubes and mice of the laboratory to the treatment of patients with deadly blood disorders. Students will learn how to think as a scientist through discussion of primary research papers describing the discoveries of several novel treatments. Topics such as gene therapy, the potential of drugs based on RNA interference and the reprogramming of somatic cells into stem cells for regenerative medicine will be discusse
Red Blood Cells
In this video, the instructor demonstrates and discusses oxygen uptake by hemoglobin in red blood cells. The instructor uses computer software (and different colors for clarification) for demonstration.
Human Circulation: Blood Pressure
Professor George Wolfe discusses human circulation and blood pressure in this video from Thinkwell's online Biology series. The video uses lecture format along with notes and illustrations on a board. Run time 08:24.
he highlands of Papua New Guinea, a place so remote that the people that live here, are among the most isolated. One of the native tribes performs a rite of passage for young men. It is to make a boy a man.(Graphic scenes of bloodletting)
Charles Drew - Inventor of the Blood Bank
Commentary, still images, and narration about Charles Drew. Commentary is provided by Dr. Lester Rodney of Morehouse Colllege. Drew did research 'in the field of blood transfusions, developing improved techniques for blood storage, and applied his expert knowledge in developing large-scale blood banks early in World War II, saving thousands of allied lives' (Wikipedia, 2009).
Blood Vessels Help Tumors Grow
This video segment, adapted from NOVA, features cancer researcher Dr. Judah Folkman and describes his approach to proving a new idea he had about how tumors grow inside the body. His idea focuses on angiogenesis, the formation of new blood vessels. Dr. Folkman designed experiments to test his central hypothesis and thus prove the support mechanism behind tumors. Closed captioning included. Run time 05:07.
Breakdown of Blood Retinal Barrier In Diabetic Retinopathy
Description of how the retinal pigmented epithelial cells maintain the barrier between blood and the retinal tissue. Simple animation with text and computer generated narration. Grades 9-12. 1:13 min.
Understanding High Blood Pressure
A quarter of Americans have high blood pressure, or hypertension. In this video, a doctor uses diagrams to explain what high blood pressure means, why it is of concern to your health, and how it is diagnosed. 3:09 min.
The Nephron: Blood Filtration and Urine Production
Professor George Wolfe discusses the nephron, blood filtration and urine production in this video from Thinkwell's online Biology series. The video uses lecture format along with notes and illustrations on a board. Run time 12:33.
Reviews the structure and function of the blood vessels. Computer animation and video with narration. Grades 7-12. 2:16.
Human Anatomy - Blood Vessels
This is a computer-animated video (04:13) that describes how blood vessels work. This video has English captions at the bottom of the screen. This may be good for big classrooms where sound may not travel well.
Note: There is static as the narrator appears to be too close to the microphone while speaking.
Human Circulation: Blood Vessels
Professor George Wolfe discusses human circulation and blood vessels in this video from Thinkwell's online Biology series. The video uses lecture format along with notes and illustrations on a board. Run time 11:22.
Winston Churchill: Blood, Toil, Tears and Sweat (1940)
Winston Churchill delivers one of his most famous speeches, his first as Prime Minister, in the House of Commons on May 13th, 1940. Includes introduction by historian Simon Schama. Taken from the BBC documentary series 'A History of Britain'.
T. Rex Blood?
In this video segment adapted from NOVA scienceNOW, learn how scientists are hoping to better understand the biology of dinosaurs by studying the insides of fossil bones. Hear about the accidental discovery of dinosaur soft tissue by paleontologist Dr. Mary Schweitzer, and how this tissue enables scientists to learn more about dinosaur physiology and pathology. For example, soft tissue could provide information about toxins that led to dinosaur deaths. Closed Captioning is included. Run time 04:
6.4 Ewan's return to Blawearie
Sunset Song was written in the early 1930s and is still one of the best-known and most-debated Scottish novels. In this unit, we discuss whether Sunset Song succeeds as critique of capitalism and whether it has value as a work of literature separate from its propagandistic ambitions.
Bottle in dark gray gloss glaze. Irregular, blocky shape with foot and split neck, decorated with thick incised lines.
Squarish bodied vessel with narrower foot, and rough neck. Running figure on one side, in white and brown.
Organ Weight Study in Rats
This dataset comes from a study of 90 rats given one of 3 doses of a drug. At sacrifice, data on body weight and the weights of various organs were collected. Questions from this study refer to the relationship between dosage and body and organ weight. A text file version of the data is found in the relation link.
Model testing of passive site stabilization
Passive site stabilization is a new technology proposed for use in mitigation of liquefaction risk at developed sites. Liquefaction is the rapid loss of strength caused by earthquakes, typically found in saturated sands or loose fills, which causes the formation to flow like later. Liquefaction has been known to be a very costly occurrence claiming many lives, damaging structures and businesses, and costing billions of dollars in repairs; however, sites can be remediated to prevent liquefaction.
