Links about Scientists 

Women in Science

The European Research Commission has compiled a collection of brief mp3 segments discussing European women in science through history. I found the narrators to be quite pleasing to listen to and I appreciate learning more about women who made significant contributions to science. You can also download a pdf book with the same information.

Awesome! From Women in Science.org, you can hear radio broadcasts about Women in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics ON THE AIR!

And finally, an extensive list (4,000 years worth) of women in the sciences can be found here.

 

From Make:Technology on Your Time, comes The Elements of Humanity: a Fascination with Science and Technology.

Make Magazine interviewed great minds in science and technology to find out what intrigues them and find out more about what the work they do.

The videos are absolutely delightful! 

 

Histological Eponyms

Have you ever wondered who the Eustachian tube is named after? 

What about something more obtuse like the Node of Ranvier?

These powerpoints take a special view of histology (viewing tissues of the body with a microscope) and the men, all European and mostly sporting facial whiskers of some sort or another, who made the discovery of the structures named after them. (Eponyms). 

I discuss both the men and the structures with pictures of both as available!

Please enjoy! I had a fantastic time putting this together. I have a running joke throughout and a few other random facts that could make this enjoyable to those who might not normally want to view this material. Hold out to the end if you can....

Stem Cells and Tissue Engineering 

First, a lovely little video about stem cells, called "Stem Cell Story" 

 

Below are links to each of the parts of a free ten part series (as released) called the Stem Cell Review by Biobusiness TV.
They've done a great job at getting lead researchers and biotech businessmen interested in working with stem cells to discuss the future of stem cells in business.
