Demostró y popularizó una serie de ideas comunes

Viewing Radio Waves (Interactive)
In this interactive activity adapted from NASA, learn about radio waves and how astronomers use them to study objects in space. Understand how radio waves are part of the electromagnetic spectrum and explore how the frequency, wavelength, and speed of a wave are related to each other. Investigate the differences between radio waves and sound waves and learn how astronomers use radio waves to create images. Compare optical and radio images of galaxies and nebulas.
Students become familiar with lunar phases by locating and then graphing the Moon phase of their own birthdays. After listening and discussing lunar myths and legends they create their own Birthday Moon Stories.

Clinical Utility of a Novel Assay for Tracking Tumor Burden in Merkel Cell Carcinoma
Merkel cell carcinoma is an aggressive skin cancer that is typically driven by a common polyomavirus. The requirement of viral proteins to drive the growth of cancer cells has provided important clues as to how this cancer can be tracked and treated. Antibodies to the polyomavirus 'oncoprotein' increase and decrease in parallel with the amount of this cancer in patients. This observation serves as the basis of a test (made clinically available in January 2014 by UW Lab Medicine) that can detect

Based on a five-year study which has culminated in his latest book, China goes global: the partial power, Shambaugh argues that rather than 'rising', China is 'spread' across the globe -- with a growing international footprint that is broad but not deep.
David Shambaugh is a
