The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is responsible for the cleanup of our nation's nuclear legacy, involving complex decisions about how and where to dispose of nuclear waste and how to transport it to its ultimate disposal site. It is widely recognized that a broad range of stakeholders and tribes should be involved in this kind of decision. All too(More)
BACKGROUND In 2013, a cohort of public health students participated in a 'flipped' Environmental and Occupational Health course. Content for the course was delivered through NextGenU.org and active learning activities were carried out during in-class time. This paper reports on the design, implementation, and evaluation of this novel approach. METHODS(More)
Immunoglobulin (Ig) molecules consist of two identical heavy (H) polypeptide chains and two identical light (L) polypeptide chains held together by noncovalent forces and disulfide bonds (1). The structural genes encoding these chains are grouped into at least three sets, one encoding H chains, one encoding L chains of the x class, and one encoding L chains(More)
Archaea are widespread and abundant in soils, oceans, or human and animal gastrointestinal (GI) tracts. However, very little is known about the presence of Archaea in indoor environments and factors that can regulate their abundances. Using a quantitative PCR approach, and targeting the archaeal and bacterial 16S rRNA genes in floor dust samples, we found(More)
BACKGROUND Exposure to traffic-related air pollution (TRAP) can adversely impact health but epidemiologic studies are limited in their abilities to assess long-term exposures and incorporate variability in indoor pollutant infiltration. METHODS In order to examine settled house dust levels of hopanes, engine lubricating oil byproducts found in vehicle(More)
