Acids and bases are substances that are able to give and receive hydrogen ions respectively. This seemingly insignificant ability gives rise to a wide range of reactions and is essential for many biological processes. This pathway provides resources related to acids and bases, the types of reactions they undergo, and the pH scale which is used to measure the concentration of hydrogen ions in a solution.
In this episode on Higher Ed’s Hidden Curriculum, Anthony Jack shares insights from his award-winning research on how inequality and poverty shape the life chances of college students. We also learn how Tony’s high school trajectory shaped his career, and discuss whether COVID-19 might inspire a new contract for higher ed’s commitment to disadvantaged students.
A new virtual interview series from LabXchange at Harvard University, the Xchange showcases the diverse roles, projects, and initiatives that make up the intersecting fields of science, education, and health. Hosted by LabXchange Faculty Director Robert Lue, our first season features a range of perspectives on the impact of COVID-19.
Este video describe algunas de las formas en que se puede aplicar la electroforesis en gel en el mundo real, desde la medicina forense hasta la clonación de genes.
This pathway introduces the building block of all matter, the atom, and some of the key experiments that helped scientists discover the subatomic particles that give atoms their unique properties.
This pathway explores how physical features of a species can change over time in response to environmental factors influencing survival. Learn about well known case studies like Darwin's finches and peppered moths, and conduct your own investigations through simulations.
An infectious disease specialist at Hackensack University Medical Center in New Jersey, Dr. Bindu Balani treated the state's first confirmed COVID-19 patient in March 2020. In this episode, Bindu shares her experiences on the front line of the battle to identify, treat, and stem the subsequent surge of COVID-19 cases. From this unique vantage point, we learn how all units of the hospital mobilized and adapted to protect and serve the patients in their care.
