The Good Side of Nightmares
The average person dreams several hundred times a week. Most are about relatives, friends, colleagues and loved ones. Most of the time, nothing special happens – and we tend to forget most dreams. However, once in a while people wake up screaming or sweating from dreams so frightening that they can’t be forgotten. While no one likes such nightmares, reporter Wojciech (Voytek) Mikoluszko reports on why it they aren’t necessarily a bad thing. The songs are performed by Irena Mikoluszko.

"The Fountain of Life: From Dolly to Customized Embryonic Stem Cells, Fall 2007"
" During development, the genetic content of each cell remains, with a few exceptions, identical to that of the zygote. Most differentiated cells therefore retain all of the genetic information necessary to generate an entire organism. It was through pioneering technology of somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT) that this concept was experimentally proven. Only 10 years ago the sheep Dolly was the first mammal to be cloned from an adult organism, demonstrating that the differentiated state of a m

"Regenerative Medicine: from Bench to Bedside, Spring 2010"
"Regenerative medicine involves the repair and regeneration of tissues for therapeutic purposes, such as replacing bone marrow in leukemia, cartilage in osteoarthritis or cells of the heart after a heart attack. In this course, we will explore basic mechanisms of how cells differentiate into specific tissues in response to a variety of biologic signaling molecules. We will discuss the use of such factors for in vitro tissue production. We will also study the cellular mechanisms involved in the c

Exploring Magnetism in Solar Flares
Solar flares are the most powerful explosions in the Solar System and play an important role in the Sun-Earth connection. Solar flares are caused by sudden changes of strong magnetic fields in the Sun’s corona. The changing magnetic field converts magnetic potential energy into kinetic energy by accelerating charged gases (plasmas) in the corona. The plasma is channeled by the magnetic field up and away from the Sun. Plasma is also accelerated back down along the magnetic field into the chromo
