In this unit, we describe the theory of evolution by natural selection as proposed by Charles Darwin in his book, first published in 1859, On The Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or The Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life. We will look at natural selection as Darwin did, taking inheritance for granted, but ignoring the mechanisms underlying it.

Dr. Carl Lowenberger: Vectors and Parasites
SFU Canada Research Chairs Seminar Series: "Vectors and Parasites: What Can We Learn from Insects to Treat Human Diseases?" Carl Lowenberger Canada Research Chair in Parasitology and Vectors of Disease Entomology, Department of Biology Jan 27, 2011 Insect vectors transmit parasites and pathogens that cause significant human morbidity and mortality. Most insects recognize and eliminate these parasites using components of their innate immune system. Why then do all insects not eliminate their p

Listen: History of blood transfusion speaks to stem cell debate
Holly Tucker, an associate professor of French, has written a fascinating early history of blood transfusions that reads like an eerie murder mystery. Blood Work: A Tale of Medicine and Murder in the Scientific Revolution has implications for modern ethical dilemmas such as cloning and stem cell procedures.
Veterans' Cooperative Grocery Store, April 1946. Photo no. 4.
World War II veterans attending Alabama Polytechnic Institute were often married and sometimes had children. To counter high post-WWII prices in Auburn, Ala., the veterans formed a food cooperative, which resembled a small country grocery store. Per the Alumnews, prices averaged 30% less than in local stores. [Individuals in this photograph are not identified.

Is Proton Therapy Treatment Optimal for Childhood Cancer?
MD Anderson Proton Therapy Center physician Dr. David Grosshans talks about the importance of proton therapy radiation for childhood cancer. After sharing the difference in traditional IMRT radiation and proton therapy, he discusses why proton therapy is optimal for children, how children tolerate proton therapy, preliminary outcomes for children treated with proton therapy, and the importance of having a comprehensive and dedicated team devoted to treating children with this form of radiation.
Study Shows Importance of Proton Therapy for Childhood Cancer
Dr. David Grosshans discusses a recent study that shows how proton therapy spares healthy tissue in children with cancer. The study illustrates how proton therapy radiation is able to avoid excess radiation dose to a variety of normal structures while maintaining equal target coverage. This is important for childhood cancers because excess radiation can cause damage to the hippocampus, an area involved in learning and memory.
