Engineering a Broken Heart
The heart is a miraculous muscle. Yet every year for over one million people this vital organ quits. Heart muscle damage, most commonly caused by a heart attack, can lead to heart failure when the organ forms scar tissue rather than growing new muscle tissue. UW researchers, led by bioengineer and physician Charles Murry, are merging engineering technology, stem cells and medicine to regenerate heart muscle. The team recently published a significant breakthrough that brings us closer to addressi

By the time I applied for CERN, I had MIT and NASA on my resume
Watching “Apollo 13” as a child, physics student Hayley Osman told her dad she would be an astronaut. Believing in her potential, he continually reminded her that she could do it as long as she focused on math and science. Now, even though she no longer hopes to live the life of an astronaut, she sees that his advice paid off. In the fall of her freshman year at Missouri State, she started researching in Dr. Saibal Mitra’s lab, and he connected her with internships at Boston’s Massachus

En devenant tout rouge, je lui réponds : "Je voudrais faire du cinéma". Il insiste : "Mais quoi exactement, acteur ou réalisateur ?" Et moi, encore plus embarrassé : "Les deux"

The War in 1812
While Republicans, for the most part, still backed Jefferson's foreign policies, new elections were transforming the party. Older politicians who molded the Republican Party policy and put Jefferson and Madison in power were replaced by daring young go-getters, such as Henry Clay of Kentucky, who were intent on defending America's honor. These new leaders, called "War Hawks" by their Federalist opponents, were the primary force behind Madison's decision to call for war with Britain. The War Hawk

3.2 Io

Io is one of the most marvellous bodies in the Solar System, but the intense radiation bathing its surface (Figure 2) makes it unlikely that anyone will ever be able to visit. Even robotic spacecraft cannot survive this close to Jupiter for very long, so the Galileo Jupiter orbiter made very few close fly-bys of Io.

2.2 Population screening for genetic disease: the precedents

Knowing about particular genes, or their effects, also permits screening – the search in a population for persons with certain genotypes that are associated with a particular disease.

Until now, screening programmes have focused on one gene at a time, or one disease at a time, in cases where a mutated gene poses serious health problems and something can be done for those who are found to carry the mutation. What that something is varies with the
