The nature of the physiology and thermal regulation of the nonavian dinosaurs is the subject of debate. Previously, arguments have been made for both endothermic and ectothermic metabolisms on the basis of differing methodologies. We used clumped isotope thermometry to determine body temperatures from the fossilized teeth of large Jurassic sauropods. Our(More)
The development of more cost-effective light sources for photodynamic therapy of brain tumors would be of benefit for both research and clinical applications. In this study, the use of light-emitting diode arrays for photodynamic therapy of brain tumors with Photofrin porfimer sodium was investigated. An inflatable balloon device with a light-emitting diode(More)
This paper presents the results of a study comparing student learning in an inquiry-based and a traditional course in biotransport. Collaborating learning scientists and biomedical engineers designed and implemented an inquiry-based method of instruction that followed learning principles presented in the National Research Council report "How People Learn"(More)

We present results of an investigation of pre-service secondary mathematics and science teachers' conceptions of project-based instruction (PBI) and their enactments of PBI in apprentice (student) teaching. We evaluated their thinking and implementations within a composite framework based on the work of education researchers. We analyzed survey responses,(More)
DEDICATION To my grandfather, who always inspired me to love education and was an educator himself in every sense of the word: v ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS We see what we understand rather than understand what we see. Many people have supported me these last 7 years, from my family to friends to my colleagues at school and work. I am very grateful for all of the(More)
