Survey on opinions from national bioethics committees or similar bodies, public debate and national
The European Commission, DG Research (Directorate E: Biotechnology, Agriculture and Food) devised a survey during the Spring 2001 in order to compile opinion-based data from national bioethics committees and current national legislation in relation to human embryonic stem cell research. The data would be used to structure an informative debate on stem cells across Europe. The survey has been updated regularly in accordance with the continual monitoring of the societal dialogue, the ethical consi

FORMGRIP closed cell aluminium foam
Additions such as SiC are made to molten aluminium or aluminium alloy to modify the melt viscosity and make it suitable for foaming. 1 to 3 wt% of pre-oxidised titanium hydride is then added to the melt which is solidified to form a precursor which can be foamed in a controlled manner by a subsequent heat treatment. The resulting foam has a relatively fine and uniform cell structure.
This excellent video is accompanied by text and is suitable for high school students. "Warren Burger served as chief justice of the Supreme Court from 1969 to 1986. The Burger Court, not known for activism, was at the center of two highly controversial cases in the 1970s that had a huge impact on the nation: Roe v. Wade and Regents of University of California v.

The central theme of this course is the interaction of radiation with biological material. The course is intended to provide a broad understanding of how different types of radiation deposit energy, including the creation and behavior of secondary radiations; of how radiation affects cells and why the different types of radiation have very different biological effects. Topics will include: the effects of radiation on biological systems including DNA damage; in vitro cell survival models; and in

Everyone knows, or has at least heard, this famous line: “All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players.” It’s from Shakespeare’s romantic comedy "As You Like It," which is running through February 16th at Two River Theater in Red Bank. Christopher Benincasa recently sat down with director Michael Sexton to talk about his fresh, modern take on the play, and what it has to say to us in 2014 – more than four centuries after it was written.
We will explore the changing political choices and ethical dilemmas of American scientists from the atomic scientists of World War II to biologists in the present wrestling with the questions raised by cloning and other biotechnologies. As well as asking how we would behave if confronted with the same choices, we will try to understand the choices scientists have made by seeing them in their historical and political contexts. Some of the topics covered include: the original development of nuclea
