Nutrition and Medicine
Only 25% of US medical schools have a required nutrition course. Tufts provides such a course with 25 hours of instruction as lectures and small group activities. The course spans the theoretical to the clinical aspects of nutrition. The student learns to obtain information and knowledge, develop the ability to interpret and evaluate current nutrition research, and develop critical thinking skills on the use of nutrition in medical care. Small group assignments include: making a personal dietary
This course is designed to challenge and encourage you, as veterinary students, to explore the relationships between population health and public health, animal health and human health, and clinical and population-based health practice. If we are successful, the process of exploration will continue throughout your graduate school education and training so that when you graduate, you will be better equipped to define your role as a veterinarian, and that of the veterinary profession, in public he

High-Tech Tools for Teaching Physics: the Physics Education Technology Project
This paper introduces a new suite of computer simulations from the Physics Education Technology (PhET) project, identifies features of these educational tools, and demonstrates their utility. We compare the use of PhET simulations to the use of more traditional educational resources in lecture, laboratory, recitation and informal settings of introductory college physics. In each case we demonstrate that simulations are as productive, or more productive, for developing student conceptual understa
Science Bulletins: Full Gene Set Decoded for Three More People
In June 2000, scientists triumphantly announced they had deciphered the full human genome—the 3.2 billion units of DNA that make up the blueprint for human life. This sequence was a composite of smaller segments of DNA from many individuals, arranged to make one complete strand. Sequencing this genome cost billions of dollars and took more than a decade using the laboratory tools and techniques developed at the time. Since then, faster and cheaper sequencing techniques have been developed. Now
