Using composite materials to replace bone
In this podcast, Professor Chris Rudd, Dean of the faculty of Engineering at the University of Nottingham, describes his work with composite materials in the car industry and how it can be applied to the field of medicine. Traditionally, patients who have lost bone in an accident or have had bone removed due to cancer have had to endure two very long and very painful operations. One operation to attach steel plates to the bone, and a second operation once the bone has healed, to remove them. F

Human Growth and Development
The study of Growth and Development can help us to know a person more thoroughly and thereby be better doctors than were we to meet our patients without such informational prompting. One can follow various developmental "tracks" longitudinally from birth to death, for example, following the development of motor, language or cognitive capacities and skills from the beginning of life to its end. Alternatively, one can study the individual at various cross-sectional stages/ages of life. Examples of

ATP deficit in oxygen-limited tumour cord growth (FF++)
This is a simulation of tumor cord growth, where cells suffer from hypoxia (energy deficit shown with color). The tumor grows along the blood vessel (coincides with x-axis). Red line shows the position of the tumor–host interface. This particular simulation was programmed in FreeFEM++ out of curiosity. The source code for simulation may be found at http://code.google.com/p/cord. This video reflects work in progress and may be different from the final results.

ATP deficit in bipopulation tumour cord growth
Simulation of tumor cord growth where conversion of the tumor to glycolytic (anaerobic) metabolism takes place under hypoxia. This video shows evolution of the region where the aerobic cells suffer from hypoxia (ATP deficit) as well as the limit where the glycolytic cells start suffering too. This video reflects work in progress and may be different from the final results.

Observe an animation showing growth of a continent
This Earth science animation for middle and high school students demonstrates that plate tectonics can increase a continent's size at a convergent boundary. In the animation, when an oceanic plate that is moving a terrane subducts under a continental plate, the terrane attaches to the edge of the continent. Volcanic activity caused by the subduction is also shown. Key features in the animation are labeled, and a paragraph introduces it. Students are able to use control buttons to play, pause, an

Growth of Cities
Cities up and down the state of California grew rapidly during the Gold Rush era. Some of these cities were veritable boomtowns: San Francisco, a small village in 1847, was a bustling city by 1849, just two years later. San Francisco's population boom even had an impact on its geography. One image from 1847 shows Montgomery Street on the waterfront; but a photograph taken in 1862 shows that the waterfront had been filled to increase the city's real estate, pushing Montgomery Street inland.

Environmental Affects on Microbial Growth
This lab activity guides students in the development of background information on the environmental conditions for microbial growth, including that of the extremophiles, and relates this information to food preservation. It lists requirements for microbial growth in relation to oxygen, temperature, moisture, salt/sugar concentrations, and pH. Students are then given an assignment tying together conditions for microbial growth and the food preservation process.
