Promoting Interest in Science

I am currently a collaborator and representative from Stevenson Middle School for the following grant proposal. Howard Hughes Medical Institute Initiative for Biomedical Research Institutions - 2007Queens Medical Center Ulu Kukui Project HHMI Grant Proposal (.pdf)

pseudoxanthoma elasticum pxe
Pseudoxanthoma Elasticum (PXE)
  • A multisystem disease
  • Affects elastic tissue
  • Affects skin, eyes, gastrointestinal and cardiovascular

systems.

purpose
Purpose
  • To figure out what this gene does in flies so that we can then apply it to humans.
how do we do this
How do we do this?
  • Determine when and where the gene products are found in the fly.
  • Determine if this fly gene can function like the human gene “in vitro”.
  • Mutate (mess up) the gene in flies and see what happens.
hawaii science standards

HAWAII SCIENCE STANDARDS

This is what we are to teach in class according to the Hawaii Department of Education. HCPS III

u s national science standards

U.S. NATIONAL SCIENCE STANDARDS

This is what students should be learning according to the national standards set forth by the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
