Koch Institute Public Galleries: Stopping the Spread of Cancer
How can doctors detect and stop the deadly process by which cancers spread throughout the body? This video traces the work of the KI's Gertler lab to better understand metastasis and identify new targets for detection and therapy of metastatic cancers. The video currently appears in the interactive exhibits of the KI Public Galleries. Learn more at http://ki.mit.edu/galleries.

The committee looks for whether applicants can do good research, independence, exci
The science behind wheeled sports
This unit focuses on cycling and wheelchair racing: what we might collectively call 'wheeled sports'. The Scientific concepts such as force, acceleration and speed are also useful for understanding these sports. However, cycling and wheelchair racing differ from the sports you have studied so far in that technology more obviously plays an important role.
This Unit studies 'proteins'. Starting with a simple analysis of the molecular make up, the Unit moves on to look at the importance of protein and how they are digested and absorbed
