The Structures of Life
This site takes us into the world of structural biology -- a branch of molecular biology that focuses on the shape of nucleic acids and proteins (the molecules that do most of the work in our bodies). Learn about the structures and roles of proteins, tools used to study protein shapes, how proteins are used in designing new medications (for AIDS and arthritis), and what structural biology reveals about all life processes. Find out about careers in biomedical research.

Engineering Statics
Statics is a sophomore level engineering course, offered in all mechanical and civil engineering programs. Statics forms the essential pre-requisite to a number of follow-on courses, such as dynamics and mechanics of materials, and lays the foundation for design of mechanical systems. In most institutions, Statics is taught in a traditional way with an emphasis on the mathematical operations that are useful in its implementation, but without enough emphasis on modeling the interactions between r

Birding at the Museum: Frank Chapman and the Dioramas
Naturalist and long-time exhibition artist Stephen C. Quinn tells the story of his "all-time Museum hero," Frank M. Chapman, who worked in the Ornithology Department from 1888 to 1942. Chapman's career is a litany of firsts: first curator of birds at the Museum, writer of the first field guides to birds, creator of Christmas bird counts, and first to recognize the power of the habitat displays to build public concern about existential threats to bird species.
