Research with Humans and Animals

This is when I learned research with humans does not necessarily mean some crazy Frankenstein experiment. "A living individual person about whom an investigator conducting research obtains data through intervention or interaction with the individual or identifiable private information." It could be something as simple as testing if sports drinks actually have an effect on …

Biosafety

I learned a lot about biology and biosafety in this discussion since I have not been in a biology class or lab.  I honestly thought it was going to be quite boring but it was really interesting.  I never knew there was a difference between a chemical fume hood and a biological safety cabinet, to …

Chemical Hygiene

This morning started off watching a nice chemical explosion and ended in how to properly put on and remove gloves.  In between all the fun and excitement we discusses personal protection equipment, hand washing, and understanding how to obtain information from MSDS sheets.
