Vandetanib Give Medullary Thyroid Cancer Patients A Second Chance
In April, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the use of vandetanib for the treatment of medullary thyroid carcinoma. MD Anderson's Dr. Robert Gagel who with his team helped to bring about the FDA's approval of vandetanib talks about the drug, the research and it's benefit to medullary thyroid cancer patients.
Trail-Following in Snails: A Behavior and Statistical Laboratory Exercise
It is well documented that many snails follow the trails of other snails. A variety of simple experiments can be designed around trail following that teach experimental design, observation and data collection, and statistical analysis of results. The easily obtained, intertidal littorine snails can be used in areas with access to the ocean, while land snails or slugs can be substituted in inland areas. The statistical emphasis can be modified to make this exercise suitable to a variety of levels

3.3 Constructive plate boundaries
Plate tectonics is an earth sciences topic that attracts a good deal of interest, given that it a topic very often featured in popular science programmes on TV and radio. It is a subject that have strong visual appeal. The coverage is S279 is self-contained, up to date and is written in a way that will be accessible to those with interest and motivation, all the more so for those who have some pre-existing scientific understanding.
4.3 The easy problems and the hard problem
What is consciousness? How does the brain generate consciousness and how can a science of the mind describe and explain it adequately? This unit will introduce you to the slippery phenomenon that is consciousness, as well as some of the difficulties consciousness presents to science and philosophy.

7.1 Consider the purpose A project that meets an important need for your organisation will contribute towards meeting wider organisational targets. Consider the purpose – what will the project contribute that will further the goals of the organisation? It is often useful to discuss this with the project sponsor and to align the project objectives with the strategic objectives of the organisation. If the ‘fit’ of the project with the organisational direction is considered at an early stage, it might be poss

Smoke, Mirrors, and Inflation Expectations Some influential commentators believe that the Federal Reserve's timing for the withdrawal of its record monetary stimulus could be determined by inflation expectations. (A popular measure of inflation expectations is the difference between the interest rate on the 10-year Treasury note and the interest rate on the 10-year Treasury inflation protected security [TIPS]). After settling at 1.5 p

PediNeuroLogic Exam: Introduction: General Physical Examination
In the neurological assessment of the child don't neglect the general physical examination. Some of the parts of the general examination that are particularly important to note are the following: Somatic growth - measure height and weight and compare percentiles with head circumference; Search for dysmorphic features - carefully study the face especially the midface. There is the old adage that the face reflects the brain because anomalies of the midface are often associated with underlying brai

Place Value - by StudyJams
Each digit in a number has a value. That means that a digit's place determines its value. Once you know the place values of numbers, reading any number will be a breeze. Learn more about place value with this cartoon animation from StudyJams. A short, self-checking quiz is also included with this link.

Von Hippel Lindau - Rare Genetic Disease
Von Hippel Lindau disease (VHL) is an inherited gene mutation that causes tumors to form in areas containing large numbers of blood vessels like in the eyes, brain, spinal cord, kidney, pancreas and inner ear. Eric Jonasch, associate professor in MD Anderson Cancer Center's Genitourinary Medical Oncology Department, is one of the few doctors in the world that treats this rare disease and he discusses VHL in this episode.
