2013 Molecular Medicine In Action Application

A hands-on program for high school teachers to experience the methods scientists use in unlocking and deciphering the molecular, cellular and genetic basis of diseases and processes such as cancer, diabetes, stem cells and angiogenesis.

We are seeking a diverse group of teachers to spend one day learning about the latest techniques in siRNA (silencing RNA) knockdown for cancer therapy, understanding how environmental or genetic factors influence islets and diabetes, and the role of angiogenesis in diseases. The MMIA for Teaching Professionals gives 36 high school science teachers from across Indiana a day of hands-on science with top researchers at the Indiana University School of Medicine and the Herman B Wells Center for Pediatric Research.

Support for this year's program comes from the Herman B Wells Center for Pediatric Research, IU School of Medicine and Riley Children's Foundation.

"The one thing that I liked best about the program was that we were treated like educational professionals. I would highly recommend this program to other teachers. I gained valuable insight into cancer research."
"I think this is a great opportunity to see what is going on in science, talk to the researchers and spend a day with colleagues."
"I would suggest that ANY biology or chemistry teacher attend this program."
