Sundman, Eva; Olofsson, Peder S. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2014
Neural reflexes support homeostasis by modulating the function of organ systems. Recent advances in neuroscience and immunology have revealed that neural reflexes also regulate the immune system. Activation of the vagus nerve modulates leukocyte cytokine production and alleviates experimental shock and autoimmune disease, and recent data have…

Renn, Lauren; Rainville, Alice Jo – Journal of Child Nutrition & Management, 2019
Over 50 million Americans have a food allergy to one or more foods (Berdanier, 2017). Approximately 1 in 25 school-aged children are diagnosed with food allergies (Sicherer, Mahr, & The Section on Allergy and Immunology, 2010), while 25% of children may not experience a reaction until later in life (Leo & Clark, 2017). A food sensitivity…

Grosas, Aidan Bradley; Raju, Shiwani Rani; Schuett, Burkhardt Siegfried; Chuck, Jo-Anne; Millar, Thomas James – Studies in Higher Education, 2016
Formative assessment used in a level 2 unit, Immunology, gave outcomes that were both surprising and applicable across disciplines. Four formative tests were given and reviewed during class time. The students' attitudes to formative assessment were evaluated using questionnaires and its effectiveness in closing the gap was measured by the…

McCauslin, Christine Seitz; Gunn, Kathryn Elaine; Pirone, Dana; Staiger, Jennifer – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2015
We describe a structured inquiry laboratory exercise that examines transcriptional regulation of the "NOS2" gene under conditions that simulate the inflammatory response in macrophages. Using quantitative PCR and the comparative C[subscript T] method, students are able determine whether transcriptional activation of "NOS2"…

Volmer, Dietrich A.; Curbani, Luana; Parker, Timothy A.; Garcia, Jennifer; Schultz, Linda D.; Borges, Endler Marcel – Journal of Chemical Education, 2017
This experiment describes a simple protocol for teaching acid-base titrations using potentiometry, conductivity, and/or photometry to determine end points without an added indicator. The chosen example examines the titratable acidity of a red wine with NaOH. Wines contain anthocyanins, the colors of which change with pH. Importantly, at the…

Brokaw, Ann; Cobb, Brian A. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2009
Immunology is gaining prominence both in the media as well as on the Advanced Placement (AP) exam in Biology. One of the challenges of teaching modern biological topics such as immunology and biochemistry in the high-school setting is the increased reliance on expensive technology in the research world. To begin to bridge this widening gap, we…

Ott, Laura E.; Carson, Susan – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2014
Flow cytometry and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) are commonly used techniques associated with clinical and research applications within the immunology and medical fields. The use of these techniques is becoming increasingly valuable in many life science and engineering disciplines as well. Herein, we report the development and…

Parent, Beth A.; Marbach-Ad, Gili; Swanson, Karen V.; Smith, Ann C. – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2010
Scientific literature was used to give a research oriented context to our immunology lab course. Immunology lab, a senior level course (60 students/year) was formerly taught in a traditional mode, with exercises aimed at learning lab protocols. To engage students in understanding we connected the protocols to their use as reported in research…

Khalil, Mahmoud Salah; Al Rukban, Mohammad Othman – Educational Research and Reviews, 2010
Problem based learning (PBL) started to spread in health professions in Saudi Arabia at the beginning of this century. There are several challenges facing its implementation such as defects on interpersonal communications and self-directed learning. These challenges would affect students' performance in small group discussions and their…
