Access Excellence, launched in 1993, is a national educational program that provides health, biology and life science teachers access to their colleagues, scientists, and critical sources of new scientific information via the World Wide Web. The program was originally developed and launched by Genentech Inc., and in 1999 joined the National Health Museum, a non-profit organization founded by former U.S. Surgeon General C. Everett Koop as a national center for health education. Access Excellence will form the core of the educational component of the National Health Museum Website that is currently under development. .

Roger Sabbadini, Ph.D., was the motivation behind this animation. The actin-myosin crossbridge system is complex, and we are really only speculating on the details in many ways. However, if a picture is worth a thousand words, this one second, 15 frame, animation is worth at least 15 thousand. (less)

Dr. Gloria White-Hammond (pediatrician) examines a young Latina child in an examining room. The child cries and White-Hammond comforts her, speaking in English and in Spanish. White-Hammond speaks to the child's mother about treatments for the child. White-Hammond examines the child with a stethoscope. Callie Crossley interviews White-Hammond about a program designed to increase the number of African American physicians across the nation. White-Hammond says that medical schools lack the financial, academic and other kinds of support necessary to retain some students. White-Hammond talks about the need for more minority physicians; White-Hammond says that minority physicians bring a 'sensitivity' to the treatment of minority patients. (less)

Seminars exploring current research and topical issues in the biomedical sciences, addressed at the general theme of innovation. Seminars are organized in blocks with related content, and are presented by prominent outside speakers as well as by HST faculty members and graduate students. Each seminar block includes several semi-weekly presentations, in addition to wide-ranging discussions among speakers, faculty, and students. Discussions involve issues such as relations between presented research areas, requirements for further advances in the "state of the art", the role of enabling technologies, the responsible practice of biomedical research, and career paths in the biomedical sciences.

The objective of this subject is to teach the design of contemporary information systems for biological and medical data. These data are growing at a prodigious rate, and new information systems are required. This subject will cover examples from biology and medicine to illustrate complete life cycle information systems, beginning with data acquisition, following to data storage and finally to retrieval and analysis. Design of appropriate databases, client-server strategies, data interchange protocols, and computational modeling architectures will be covered. Students are expected to have some familiarity with scientific application software and a basic understanding of at least one contemporary programming language (C, C++, Java, Lisp, Perl, Python, etc.). A major term project is required of all students. Reading is assigned from the contemporary literature, and there is occasional homework. (less)

Physics Teaching for the 21st Century is a resource for teachers who are interested in teaching physics concepts in real world contexts. The great problems of the 20th century were solved by a few incredibly smart people. The great problems of the 21st century will have to be solved by billions of moderately smart people. This is where teachers come in... In this website you will find: * articles that clearly explain the physics concepts in a real world context * take-home experiments that can be done by students or by teachers as demonstrations in class * lecture notes in the form of power point presentations * multiple choice questions to use as a quick test of understanding during lectures, and as a way to stimulate critical thinking. * problem sets and exam questions that would interest students (including solutions) * data sheets with realistic numbers and information * videos further explaining physics concepts in real world contexts (less)
