HOW TO BLOG

CONDITIONS FOR CREDIT:

If your teacher is offering credit for this, you need to:

1) Have signed in at the session about which you are writing

2) Have introduced yourself to me (Alfia Wallace) at the session regarding your intention to blog for credit, or, I happen to know/remember who you are

3) Write at least 5 original sentences in a cohesive paragraph about the session or a related, relevant topic. This means no lists of "This is what I learned: 1. Blah blah blah" etc.

YOUR COMMENTS:

After reading a post about a particular Marin Science Seminar Session, click on the comments link below. It will have my name (Alfia Wallace) and then a link that says "0 comments" or "1 comment" or some other number of comments. Click on it. You will be taken to a page where you can enter your comments. It makes sense to write or type your comments in a separate document and then to copy/paste them in the comments box so that you can proof your writing.

WHO ARE YOU?

Below the comments box it will say "Choose an Identity" in orange. The top choice is Google ID which you can log into if you want to use your gmail to post. The third choice down is Name/url. Choose this one to just write your name or pseudonym (url optional). This is probably the best choice for most people. If you choose a pseudonym, you'll need to email me with your pseudonym and real name so that I can let your teacher know what you wrote.

Invention in Medicine this Wed. 10/26/16

Marin Science Seminar for Teens & Community Presents Invention in Medicine How Medical Devices get Invented and Go to Market with Art Wallace MD PhD of UCSF & VAMC SF
Wednesday, October 26, 2016 7:30 - 8:30 pm Terra Linda High School, Room 207 320 Nova Albion, San Rafael, CA 94903 


Art Wallace started out in experimental surgery and radiology studying imaging of the heart using CT
scanners. He has worked on a number of devices that originally were built for experimental studies that evolved into clinically useful devices including a cardiac output monitor, the off pump CABG, off pump aneurysm surgery, electronic sedation, and a selective coronary vasodialtor. Dr. Wallace will explain his experiences with the inventive process using examples from both device design and drug development. There will be a brief discussion of the importance of intellectual property, patents, venture capital, FDA approval, and business development in completing the invention process. There will …

An Interview With Diara Spain, Ph.D

By Rachael Metzger, MSS Intern

Ocean acidification is an issue becoming apparent in the effects on both sea creatures and humans. Diara Spain, the Associate Professor of Biology at Dominican University, came to Marin Science Seminar to talk to us about her studies in marine invertebrates and the damage ocean acidification is causing them. 

To learn more about Diara Spain and what inspired her studies we conducted an interview:


1. How did you get interested in biology? Is there a time, event, 
or person in your life that inspired you to pursue the study? I've always been interested in biology, really science in general. I grew up in rural North Carolina and as a kid it was expected that you'd spend most of your free time outside playing with your friends and pets.  One thing that sparked my interest in marine organisms were the summer vacations at the undeveloped beaches in North Carolina. 
2. Why did you specifically decide to focus on functional morphology, locomotion in echinode…
