In-vitro tiered approach alternative to live animal testing for determination of ocular or dermal ir
There is a continual need for information concerning the potential for chemicals, if inadvertently splashed into the eyes, to cause effects from irritation to total blindness.

This may be accomplished by replacing the live animal t

Jeremy Siegel on 2010: Good for Stocks, Bad for Bonds -- and Why Interest Rates Will Go Up
U.S. stocks boomed in the last nine months of 2009, but remained well below earlier highs. Indeed, many people referred to the first 10 years of the 21st century as "the lost decade," because stocks returned virtually nothing while investors had been conditioned to expect 10% a year. Meanwhile, bonds and commodities experienced a stunning run. Have the rules of investing changed? What's ahead for 2010?

A Public Health Seminar delivered on Monday, October 4, 2010.
