Angiogenesis and Metastasis in Cancer
The resource below is a series of Powerpoint slides (and a list of further reading) on the cellular and molecular basis of angiogenesis and metastasis in cancer. It gives a short overview of the basic organisation of blood vessels and how tuours agrow and spread by stimulating new blood vessel growth and metastic transformation, highlighting the signalling pathways involved in these processes. These slides were created by Dr. Momna Hejmadi as part of her course to first and second year undergrad

Heart anatomy
This topic contains a labelled photograph and diagram of the heart. An introduction to the cardiac cycle is given: the heart is briefly described as having four chambers, and the blood-flow within them is described (e.g. if it is oxygenated or deoxygenated). An animation illustrates the direction of blood flow during the cardiac cycle.

Heart structure
This topic describes the components of the conducting system of the heart and their individual roles. An image illustrates the overall process and shows their relative locations. The topic concludes with a schematic diagram illustrating the direction of blood flow and whether it is oxygenated or de-oxygenated.

Blood vessel anatomy
This topic begins with a brief introduction to the vascular system and its components (arteries, veins and capillaries). Schematic diagrams illustrate the principal arteries and veins of the body and lower limbs. A diagram illustrating the different layers of blood vessels is shown with supporting text. The last page of the topic describes the structure of capillaries and is supported by a clear diagram.

Heart physiology
This topic starts with an introduction to the cardiac cycle and is supported by an animation showing the direction of blood flow in the heart. The stages of the cardiac cycle (e.g. early diastole) are detailed. The topic concludes with a description of cardiac output and a sample calculation is given.

Blood vessel anatomy
This topic begins with a brief introduction to the vascular system and its components (arteries, veins and capillaries). An overall schematic diagram illustrates the position of the components in relation to the heart. Layers of the components are described in more detail (e.g. collagen fibres; smooth muscles) and are accompanied by diagrams. The control of blood flow is described; emphasis is on spincters and shunt vessels.

Al-90 wt% Cu (bronze)
This is a copper-aluminium bronze containing 10 wt% aluminium. A small amount of iron is often added to act as a grain refiner to improve the mechanical properties. Alloys with more than 8 wt% aluminium solidify as the β phase. Below about 930°C, Widmanstätten α phase precipitates. At the eutectoid temperature (565°C) the remaining β decomposes to a lamellar eutectoid of α and β. Rapid cooling from the high temperature β phase can form martensite instead of Widmanstätten α.
