Anatomy of a Research Project: From Idea to Publication - Medscape

As a career researcher, I'm always looking for new areas to study. That's one of the main reasons I attend the annual American Diabetes Association meeting—to identify gaps in our knowledge of diabetes that I may be able to fill with new research. In ...

Cool Classes: Art & Sex Through the Lens of Botany - Bucknell University

Bucknell University
"Our fields of study — and the skills necessary for each — are vastly different. Despite the contrast, there's an interesting exchange between a botany lecture and a studio project, or between a lab experiment and a group critique. The very fact that ...
