Impact of Nanotechnology on Mobile health Systems

This presentation discusses health ecosystem and technology trends and nano driven health scenarios. Current health systems will continue to evolve towards "Mobile Health Ecosystems" where in traditional practices are extended through mobile communication devices and secure, seamless networks. This trend is most apparent in United States and Europe. As an example, integrated wireless personal...
Best in Healthcare Getting Better with Lean

This paper, from the Lean Enterprise Institute, discusses the Mayo Clinic and patient flow using lean methods. The author discusses flow through the Cardiovascular Health Clinic, as well as streamlined treatment of patients with severe heart attacks, and developing a lean culture in the hospital and clinic.
New Facility, New Flow, and New Levels of Patient Care

This paper, by George Taninecz, describes how lean concepts were applied to the healthcare system. Published by the Lean Energy Institute, topics include Patient Flow, Reducing Waiting, and Quality Checks. Key results are also discussed.
Research Assistant Sandra Bustamante

This video, presented by WGBH, takes a look at what it is like to be a research assistant in a university setting working on a nanoparticle project. The video showcases the kind of independent and collaborative work that goes on in a laboratory setting as a research assistant. Viewers will also find a background essay, discussion questions, and standards alignment for the material. Running time...
Biomedical Technician Training

This video, created by ATETV and presented by WGBH, takes a look at a Biomedical Technician program. This video shows just what students will need to learn, and how it will be applied to either their occupation after graduation or continuing education. This video discusses the skills needed by graduates, outside of math and science, to be successful. This video is useful for anyone interested in...
Cancer Nanotech

Teachers' Domain presents this interactive lesson on cancer nanotechnology, which explores how scientists are using nanotechnology for medical purposes, specifically cancer research and treatment. The material is a good example of how nanotechnology is used as a solution to a real problem. Topics in nanotechnology that are covered include nanotubes, nanowires, quantum dots, and fullerenes. The...
U Fix It: Middle School Lesson

This activity from the Florida Advanced Technological Education (FLATE) Center is targeted towards middle school students and asks them to examine the relationship between science and technology. The example of medical manufacturing is used to demonstrate this concept. The lesson should require two class periods to complete.
DNA Microarray Learning Module

Module Description: This module, from Support Center for Microsystems Education (SCME), introduces participants to DNA microarrays. The module covers types of arrays, applications, interpretation, design, and fabrication. Included "activities provide the opportunity for students to gain a better understanding of these concepts as well as to discuss the ethical questions surrounding some of the...

Interactive Slide Show: Cancer Nanotech

Think small--really small. Some nanotechnology devices are as small as one nanometer, or 1/80,000th the width of a human hair. At these sizes, it is no wonder that scientists have seized upon nanotechnology for its potential in medical applications. In the not-too-distant future, as this slide show reveals, dozens of nanodevices may transform cancer diagnosis, treatment, and prevention. This page...
