Almost Science, Always Art

Science-Art-ThumbBY LESLIE W. CHINN  

Alan Rorie is a neuroscientist by training. These days, however, you’re more likely to find him using an MIG (metal-inert gas) welder to send sparks skimming over a cool slab of metal than peering at glowing monkey neurons through a microscope.

Science Music Videos


Hip-hop music echoes down the halls at Stanford University. But, if you listen closely, the lyrics are not about money and violence— they are about DNA and electrons. Tom McFadden, an instructor in the human biology program, creatively blends hip-hop with science to explain concepts from evolution to cellular respiration.

The Johns Hopkins Institute for NanoBioTechnology: Small in Science, but Not in Scope

Science-Centric-ThumbBY NICK ZAGORSKI

Launched in May 2006, the INBT employs the emerging field of nanotechnology, which manipulates matter at the molecular, or even atomic, levels to design new materials and devices, to both answer fundamental questions about cell behavior and to develop new advances in biomedicine.
