Advances in HIV Mucosal Immunology: Challenges and Opportunities
Unrestricted Use

Rating
4.0 stars

Without reliable methods to evaluate how the mucosal immune system responds to an experimental HIV vaccine, important information about how well that vaccine worked is missed. The HIV Mucosal Immunology Group (MIG) was established to address the challenge of assessing the impact of potential HIV vaccines on the mucosal immune system. The MIG comprises of expert scientists who are coordinating their efforts to improve mucosal sampling, specimen storage and assay technologies. This collection reports the results of those efforts, providing important, practical details on studying immune responses in the genital and rectal mucosa.

Biology is designed for multi-semester biology courses for science majors. It is grounded on an evolutionary basis and includes exciting features that highlight careers in the biological sciences and everyday applications of the concepts at hand. To meet the needs of today’s instructors and students, some content has been strategically condensed while maintaining the overall scope and coverage of traditional texts for this course. Instructors can customize the book, adapting it to the approach that works best in their classroom. Biology also includes an innovative art program that incorporates critical thinking and clicker questions to help students understand—and apply—key concepts.

Curb the Epidemic!

0.0 stars

Using a website simulation tool, students build on their understanding of random processes on networks to interact with the graph of a social network of individuals and simulate the spread of a disease. They decide which two individuals on the network are the best to vaccinate in an attempt to minimize the number of people infected and "curb the epidemic." Since the results are random, they run multiple simulations and compute the average number of infected individuals before analyzing the results and assessing the effectiveness of their vaccination strategies.

Introduces the basic methods for infectious disease epidemiology and case studies of important disease syndromes and entities. Methods include definitions and nomenclature, outbreak investigations, disease surveillance, case-control studies, cohort studies, laboratory diagnosis, molecular epidemiology, dynamics of transmission, and assessment of vaccine field effectiveness. Case-studies focus on acute respiratory infections, diarrheal diseases, hepatitis, HIV, tuberculosis, sexually transmitted diseases, malaria, and other vector-borne diseases.

Vaccinations are now considered a part of everyday life, but how do they work? This unit will help those with a background in biology understand the historical development of vaccination, assess the various types of vaccines used today, examine their production and explore the limitations that are placed on vaccination programmes.

This unit includes 5 lessons that culminate in students using scientific inquiry to create a group presentation discussing childhood vaccination. Using inquiry-focused reading, a video, and activities, students will learn how to formulate a conclusion based on scientific evidence. Students will research and choose additional texts to support their conclusions. When choosing additional sources, students are required to consider the questions: Is the information I am using good science? Is it a reliable source? The unit includes discussing the Wakefield Study as an example of poor scientific research and how poor research can spread inaccurate information. Students will need to include quoted information to support their conclusions and a MLA Works cited page

Students will watch a documentary, NOVA: Vaccines-Calling the Shots. Before viewing each section , students will read a supplementary essay. Students will answer and discuss the questions that accompany each video segment and essay. Using their discussions and answers, each group will devise their own set of two questions for each segment. They will answer and defend their conclusions using fact based research.
