Boiler Bytes: ScienceExpress brings hands-on learning to high school students
This project provides an opportunity for young students, from all backgrounds, to have hands-on learning experiences with instruments used in research laboratories today. These experiences increase the students' and teachers' skills and understanding of modern scientific technology. http://www.chem.purdue.edu/sciexpress/
Boiler Bytes: Astronaut David Wolf participates in 2010 Purdue Space Day
More than 600 students in grades three to eight were registered for the 15th annual Purdue Space Day. The participants come from 140 schools and home school programs in three states. Space Day provides students the opportunity to learn about science, technology, engineering and math by participating in three age-appropriate activity sessions throughout the day. Wolf addressed the students at the start of Space Day and participated in activities throughout the day. http://www.purdue.edu/newsroom/
Boiler Bytes: Mixable blends Facebook with academics to improve student success
A new application lets university students create online study groups within Facebook, and lets the participants synch and share documents via Dropbox. The idea is to blend students' social and academic lives into a more engaged learning experience. http://www.purdue.edu/newsroom/general/2010/100928BowenMixable.html
Boiler Bytes: Changes found in football players thought to be concussion-free

Formation of Acetyl Co-enzyme A
This page explains the formation of Acetyl Co-enzyme A which is key to the synthesis of many organic molecules in cells. An acetyl group is a simple two-carbon-atom molecule which is sufficiently reactive to make it possible to use as a building block for larger carbon skeletons. A large number of molecules that are synthesised in cells are built from two-carbon acetyl groups. An acetyl group derives from ethanoate (acetate) and is named acetyl when it forms a group within a larger molecule. I
2.1 Recap of General Philosophy Lecture 1
Part 2.1. A brief recap on the first lecture describing how Aristotle's view of the universe, dominant throughout the middle ages in Europe, came to be gradually phased out by a modern, mechanistic view of the universe.
Exploring sport online: Athletes and efficient hearts
We all know that the heart is very important but what exactly does the heart do? Why is the blood so important? What functions do the lungs perform? In this unit, we will try to provide at least a basic understanding so we can answer these questions and begin to understand why knowing about the heart is important for all sports people. Before that we will take a look at the human body.
Stem Cell Therapies are no More Drugs Than Soufflés are Fast Food
Stemcell discoveries make great news stories, but their actual translation into routine clinical practice is still a major hurdle. Is it reasonable to expect the big pharmaceutical companies to manufacture these living therapies or is the paradigm shift from today’s drugs to ‘living cells as therapies’ overwhelming? Would McDonald’s ever put delicate soufflés on their fast-food menus? This lecture will use examples from current cell and tissue-engineered clinical therapies to illustrate

9.01 Introduction to Neuroscience (MIT)
This course is an introduction to the mammalian nervous system, with emphasis on the structure and function of the human brain. Topics include the function of nerve cells, sensory systems, control of movement, learning and memory, and diseases of the brain.
HST.525J Tumor Pathophysiology and Transport Phenomena (MIT)
Tumor pathophysiology plays a central role in the growth, invasion, metastasis and treatment of solid tumors. This class applies principles of transport phenomena to develop a systems-level, quantitative understanding of angiogenesis, blood flow and microcirculation, metabolism and microenvironment, transport and binding of small and large molecules, movement of cancer and immune cells, metastatic process, and treatment response. Additional Faculty Dr. Pat D'Amore Dr. Dan Duda Dr. Robert Lange
HST.176 Cellular and Molecular Immunology (MIT)
This course covers cells and tissues of the immune system, lymphocyte development, the structure and function of antigen receptors, the cell biology of antigen processing and presentation, including molecular structure and assembly of MHC molecules, the biology of cytokines, leukocyte-endothelial interactions, and the pathogenesis of immunologically mediated diseases. The course is structured as a series of lectures and tutorials in which clinical cases are discussed with faculty tutors. Lecture
Angiotherapy and Gene therapy
The resource is a series of Powerpoint slides (and a list of further reading) on the rationale behind the design of drugs targetting proteins involved in the growth and spread of transformed cancer cells. It outlines the rationale behind anti-angiogenic therapy (with information on drugs currently available or undergoing clinical trials). It also gives a critical overview of the design of vectors used in delivery of therapeutic molecules to the target (ex-vivo and in-vivo strategies) and some ex
