Data Integration. A Real Puzzle.

Allow us to introduce ourselves…

Today your child began an exciting science program in their classroom offered by Science from Scientists. SfS is a Boston-based, non-profit organization that strives to improve science and technology attitudes and aptitudes. We send real scientists into the classroom during school every other week to teach exciting, fun, and curriculum-relevant science lessons. We will be visiting your child’s classroom every other week throughout the school year. We will bring engaging, informative, and stimulating hands-on lessons with us to supplement the school’s science curriculum.
The instructors today, and for the rest of the year, were me, Dr. Bruce Elder and Dr. Catherine Sukow. I am a geneticist by training and spent my early career investigating genetic influences on population dynamics for thermoregulatory traits in wild mice. I then moved into creating mouse models to study human disease using molecular genetic methods to disrupt the function of normal genes. Dr. Sukow is a biophysicist and her work has combined using the tools of physics with the investigation of biological processes. Together, our knowledge and training span a good breadth of science and we very much look forward to sharing that experience with your child.
