Bringing Out the Scientist in Students

submitted by: ucsandiego
UC San Diego has launched a new and innovative program that pairs high school teachers with graduate students. The pairs will be working hand in hand in high school classrooms during the school year. The hope is that the grad students will inspire high schoolers to study science down the road. The grad students also will share their knowledge of ground-breaking science with teachers, who in turn will share classroom management tips. The Socrates Fellows Program was funded by a $3 million...

Protein aggregation is a process in which identical proteins self-associate into imperfectly ordered macroscopic entities. Such aggregates are generally classified as amorphous, lacking any long-range order, or highly ordered fibrils. Protein fibrils can be composed of native globular molecules, such as the hemoglobin molecules in sickle-cell fibrils, or can be reorganized β-sheet–rich aggregates, termed amyloid-like fibrils. Amyloid fibrils are associated with several...
