Medical Product Quality Systems
Learn about the essential elements of Quality System Regulations (QSR's) and Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP's), how there is a commonality between them, and how to develop a global approach to Quality Systems in order to satisfy international requirements of ISO 9001:2000 and ISO 13485:2003. A detailed analysis of these systems and practical 'how to' recommendations and approaches are presented, with particular emphasis on the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) QSR's and GMP's.
Planning GIS for Emergency Management
This course introduces the potential of GIS to support all stages of emergency (crisis or disaster) management activities, the latest R&D advances that are helping to achieve this potential now, and some challenges for the future. The course focuses on requirements analysis and proposal writing targeted toward planning and implementing GIS solutions for government agencies and contractors. As a basis from which to pursue these objectives, Planning GIS for Emergency Management introduces the curr
Digital Government II: Information Technology and Democratic Administration, Winter 2007
This seven-week course is the second in a two-part sequence exploring contemporary practices, challenges, and opportunities at the intersection of information technology and democratic governance. This second half of the course takes on emerging directions in democratic administration – and the shifting role of information technologies in supporting, transforming, and understanding these. The course locates recent and emerging digital or e-government initiatives in historical, institutional, a
Cartography and Visualization
This course is organized around seven projects and a capstone assignment. Each project includes readings, quizzes, and discussions about concepts and tools in cartography and visualization. Throughout the course, students complete “mile marker” assignments that are designed to help them progress toward the capstone assignment. Through the course projects, students confront realistic problem scenarios that incorporate such skills and concepts as creating symbolization schemes, coordinate syst
Peptide-modified polymer for endothelialization
A functionalized polycarbonate material derived from tyrosine containing varyinglevels of free acid functionality along the backbone, poly(DTE-co-X%DT carbonate), hasbeen functionalized with a peptide to promote endothelial cell attachment and evaluatedas a potential synthetic vascular graft material. Lysine derivatives have been produced topromote the attachment of engineered peptides for promoting endothelialization.NMR has been used to analyze the initial structure of the poly(DTEC-co-X%DTC)
Digital Government 2: Information Technology and Democratic Administration, Winter 2009
Course is the second of a two-part sequence exploring contemporary practices, challenges, and opportunities at the intersection of information technology and democratic governance. Whereas the first course (SI 532) focuses on tensions and innovations in democratic politics, this course takes on emerging directions in democratic administration and the shifting role of information technologies in supporting, transforming, and understanding these. The first part of the course sets contemporary disc
Renal, Fall 2007
The major objective of this sequence is for the students to obtain integrated information regarding the structure and function of the renal system, mainly the kidney, by attending lectures and participating in laboratory exercises. By the end of the sequence, we hope that the students will have acquired a working knowledge of: 1) how the various structural components in the kidney are specialized for processing the filtrate and producing urine, 2) what homeostatic mechanisms are involved in the

Microencapsulation for therapeutic applications
Microencapsulation has proved to be a powerful technique in the field of drug delivery. A great deal of research is directed towards studying the use of various microencapsulation systems for that purpose. This study investigates the use of microencapsulation in alginate for protein delivery and delivery of gene therapy products for the treatment of spinal cord injury. Liposomes were encapsulated in alginate to form a drug delivery system which allows for multiple control points for drug release
Design, optimization and in vivo evaluation of a tissue-engineered anterior cruciate ligament replac
This thesis examined the development of a tissue-engineered ligament (TEL) for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) repair and replacement. There was an in vitro evaluation of the cellular response to the TEL and an in vivo evaluation of the optimized TEL as an ACL replacement. Scaffold fabrication was based upon the use of poly ([Greek small letter alpha]-hydroxyester) acid fibers arranged in a 3-dimensional (3-D) braided structure. In vitro cellular evaluation of the poly(lactide-co-glycolide) (PL
Real Remote Mass Spring Laboratory Experiments across InternetInherent Part of Integrated E-Learni
The paper presents the application of Integrated e- Learning, presented in general terms at this conference , exemplified on one of the most important parts of Physics - the thematic block Oscillations. The goal of the course of Physics in the chapter of Oscillations is to show the oscillatory movement as a basis of nearly all natural phenomena. The unifying model for all real world systems then may be the mass-spring system constituting the mechanical oscillator. The three constituting c
Essential Science for Teachers: Life Science: Session 2. Classifying Living Things
How can we make sense of the living world? During this session, a systematic approach to biological classification is introduced as a starting point for understanding the nature of the remarkable diversity of life on Earth.,This segment asks four questions about an organism that will be useful for classification: 1. Does it have more than one cell? 2. Do the cells contain a nucleus? 3. Is there a cell wall? 4. How does it obtain food?
Internet Scout Project
The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) developed this website to supply the public with approved definitions of chemical terminology by utilizing Adobe Acrobat Reader. Originally created in 1997, IUPAC is currently adding terms from recent IUPAC recommendations to this website. With the concise definitions and appropriate diagrams, students can find assistance with unfamiliar chemical language. The website provides links to related terms, making navigation through the site
Internet Scout Project
The Natural Resources Conservation Service provides an array of materials to assist people with their understanding of soils. Through an online presentation, users can learn ten key points about soil characteristics and their importance. Teachers and students can find many fun activities including soil erosion and particle size demonstrations and soil songs. The website provides a great introduction to soil formation and classification. Those contemplating a career in soil science can discover t

Science In Focus: Energy
Interview with Stephen Connors about limited sources of energy and the importance of using renewable sources.,Interviewee is explaining how the Earth's fossil fuel sources are finite because we are using them faster than we are creating new fossil fuel deposits. He speaks of going immensely to our geologic bank account. This segment only addresses the last sentence of the benchmark.
Science in Focus: Energy
Interview with Dr. Jaci VanHeest about the transfer/transformation of energy, food ordering, and the food chain/web,,Dr. Jaci VanHeest states that heat is generated when using muscles. Targets only first sentence of benchmark.
The Biology course is a first-year course in biology at the high school level. The course emphasizes a multi-representational approach to algebra, with concepts, results, and problems being expressed graphically, analytically, and verbally. The course uses four themes to organize important concepts throughout the course: science, technology, and society; evolution; the relationship between structure and function; and science as a process.
