NEC Lectures On Biophysics Biological networks course for physics students and fellows, 1620 June 2002 Princeton, NJ. Includes schedule from last year, profiles of speakers, and application information. http://www.neci.nj.nec.com/biophysics
Extractions: Participants Many biological phenomena are especially remarkable from a physical point of view. This year's lectures will focus on biological networks. Topics are chosen to illustrate the opportunities for research at the interface of physics and biology, especially the convergence of theoretical issues and new experimental insights. The orientation is toward graduate students and postdoctoral fellows with a physics background. Lectures will be held at NEC Research Institute and students will be housed at Princeton University.
Extractions: Fusion energy and plasma physics research is the primary mission of the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL). A collaborative national center for fusion energy and plasma physics research, PPPL is managed by Princeton University for the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Science. An associate mission for PPPL is to provide the highest quality of education in fusion energy, plasma physics, and related technologies.

Extractions: Table of Contents Introduction to How Boomerangs Work What is It? Why Does It Fly? Why Does It Come Back? How Do I Throw One? How Was It Invented? Lots More Information When most of us think of boomerangs , we imagine somebody (quite possibly a cartoon character) throwing a banana-shaped stick that eventually turns around and comes right back to the thrower's hand (possibly after hitting another cartoon character in the head). This idea is simply amazing, and as children, our first reaction to such a device was: This stick is obviously possessed with magical powers! Of course, the person or people who discovered the boomerang hadn't actually found a magical stick, but they had come upon an amazing application of some complex laws of physics. In this edition of HowStuffWorks , we'll break down the physical principles that make boomerangs work, see what happens as a boomerang flies through the air and find out the proper way to throw a boomerang so that it comes back to you. We'll also delve a little into the history of boomerangs to see how they came about in the first place. Boomeranging is an amazing demonstration of scientific principles as well as a terrific sport you can enjoy all by yourself.
Living State Physics SQUID magnetometry, cardiac electrodynamics, cellular biophysics, and biomagnetic measurements research at Vanderbilt University. http://www.vanderbilt.edu/lsp/
Extractions: Corrosion - Martian meteorite At Vanderbilt University , Living State Physics merges research at the forefront of physics with exciting and significant biomedical investigations. It is an interdisciplinary field that draws upon the tools, methods, and theories of physics, biology, engineering, and medicine, as well as computational physics and non-linear dynamics, to increase our understanding of biological systems and phenomena. Physicists have already made significant contributions to medicine and biology, primarily in medical physics, which emphasizes the application of radiation to diagnosis, imaging, and therapy; and in biophysics, which is concerned largely with the properties and behavior of biological molecules. There are, however, innumerable, unexplored biomedical applications of physics. Hence, the term Living State Physics is both an excellent name for this broad field and an appropriate parallel to the more familiar field of solid state physics, which applies numerous techniques and theories to study solids. Living State Physics elucidates, as no other discipline does, living functions and mechanisms, biological states, and pathological conditions.

It was taken during one of our animal experiment where contrast was injected into the coronary artery. The image above is the 3D reconstruction of a pig's coronary artery. The information was reconstructed from CT scans of a cast of the coronary tree.

Extractions: Webpages designed and maintained by Angela Wolff 4th June 2003 A report on the UCL meeting "Laboratory Studies of Astrochemical Processes" About the Centre " " Experimental Activities " " Theoretical Activities " " Resources People " " Contact " " Publications The purpose of the Centre is to apply research to fundamental chemical processes which are believed to occur throughout the universe. Using a unique combination of theoretical and experimental techniques, such processes are investigated in the laboratory. Comparison of these results with astronomical observations serves to increase our knowledge and understanding of the cosmos. Our first major project concerns the formation of hydrogen molecules on surfaces of interstellar dust grains and the second expands upon this to study the formation of more complex molecules such as methane. You can view a pdf document explaining the motivations and experimental activities of the centre here There are a number of academics now associated with the UCL centre and these can divided into members from the Department of Chemistry Department of Physics and Astronomy Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering and past members of the group.:
