"The National Library of Medicine (NLM), on the campus of the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland, has been a center of information innovation since its founding in 1836. The world’s largest biomedical library, NLM maintains and makes available a vast print collection and produces electronic information resources on a wide range of topics that are searched billions of times each year by millions of people around the globe. It also supports and conducts research, development, and training in biomedical informatics and health information technology. In addition, the Library coordinates a 6,000-member National Network of Libraries of Medicine that promotes and provides access to health information in communities across the United States."
The acronym S.T.E.M. stands for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The objective of the STEM initiative is to strengthen effective STEM education programs at all levels, enabling the U.S. to maintain its status as a global economic and technological leader.
Join the teaching revolution by using challenging, problem-based learning experiences that tear down compartmentalized disciplines and curriculums, and engage students in scientific inquiry and the engineering design process.
Engaging students at younger ages and making science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education more appealing were some of the main topics up for discussion at a roundtable discussion hosted by LEGO Education and National...
"Science has uncovered the blueprint of life, and devised imaging technologies that allow us to see deep within our tissues and organs. So-called basic research supports the great edifice that is modern medicine. Bench science uncovers the characteristic mechanisms and components of health and disease. Model systems from flies to fungi allow researchers to address questions pertinent to human disease. And new technologies allow us to develop more powerful tools to tackle the great challenges that remain. [...] BPoD stands for Biomedical Picture of the Day. Managed by the MRC Clinical Sciences Centre the website aims to engage everyone in the wonders of biomedicine. Images are kindly provided for inclusion on this website through the generosity of scientists across the globe."
