However, to effectively communicatewe should first understand the audience and how they consume information. The aim of this post is therefore to present a perspective on how most scientists read research papers when they first encounter them which will most probably happen online. When we first open papers, we only scan them In the modern world we are bombarded with information. To cope with this overload, most of humans employ shortcuts which help us somehow weed out the unnecessary information and grasp the essential messages.
Molecular Biology The School of Biological Sciences offers exceptional opportunities to learn, work, and collaborate across levels of biological organization and styles of research.
Faculty research interests span the complete spectrum of biological phenomena and disciplines, from biochemistry to global environmental change. This breadth of research interests has led to development of two focused, yet overlapping, graduate Recent research papers in molecular biology programs: News In our hearts forever Thomas A.
Kursar passed away peacefully at home on November 18, from pancreatic cancer. He was 69 years old. He earned a B. He was awarded a M. While there, he met Phyllis D. Coley Lissy who would become his partner in love, life and science. InTom and Lissy joined the Department of Biology at the University of Utah where they established a joint lab that became renowned for its foundational contributions to our understanding of rainforest ecology.
Working together, they made important contributions to solving why the tropical rainforests are so diverse. They found that differences in the chemicals that tropical plants use to defend themselves against insect herbivores allow closely related tree species to co-exist in the same forest.
The program is run by Panamanians and links the search for novel pharmaceuticals with job creation, research development, education and preservation of forests. It has been internationally acclaimed as a model for maximizing benefits to the host country. Ironically, some of the chemical compounds they have discovered may lead to new treatments for cancer.
He was moderate in his behavior and appetites, but passionate in his loves and beliefs. He loved Lissy, of course, and he also loved wild places and the great outdoors, many of which he and Lissy visited together for tropical biological research and spiritual renewal.
He loved gardening and his vegetable harvest was always robust. Even as a child, his mother marveled that he would stand in the garden just to watch plants grow. His homemade pumpkin pies were second to none. He loved literature, and read in Spanish and French, as well as English.
He passionately believed in equality, justice and education and was a strong advocate of women and minorities. During his career, he trained many women scientists and dozens of Latin American students both at his lab in Utah and in the field in Panama, Brazil, Peru, French Guiana and Ecuador.
On learning of his diagnosis, on Feb 14,he had a Whipple operation, seven kinds of chemotherapy, and then volunteered to be the first human to undergo three different experimental treatments at the Huntsman Cancer Institute.
Tom is survived by his partner and life-love, Lissy Coley, his sister-in-law Kitty Coley, his sister Patricia Murakami, and friends across the globe, too numerous to count. This endowment supports field work for graduate students from the University of Utah engaged in ecological research.
Tom and Lissy also established an endowment to support internships for Latin American students in hopes of facilitating their path to graduate school through the Smithsonian Tropical Research Instituteplease note in the comments section the gift is for Tom.

Biology professor wins Packard Fellowship October 15, - Dr. William Anderegg has been awarded the prestigious Packard Fellowship for his research on the effects of climate change and drought on forests.
Read UNews Story Biology Professor publishes paper in Nature September 19, - Congratulations to William Anderegg on his paper "Hydraulic diversity of forests regulates ecosystem resilience during drought" being published in Nature. Co-authors on the paper are David Bowling and John Sperry.
She spoke both about her forest canopy research and her work to bring science to underserved public audiences, including incarcerated men and women in Utah.
Listen to NPR Interview Honey, I shrunk the LouseBuster This FDA-cleared medical device uses blasts of heated air to cure head lice infestations on kids and their parents! Tropical mountains are centers of bird diversity but they are at risk from climate change.
Monte's study found that, over ten years, the bird community shifted upslope in a Honduran cloud forest park. Higher elevations accrued bird diversity while lower elevations lost it, and several key cloud forest species moved higher up the mountains.
It is likely that warming temperatures are driving birds upslope while deforestation removes suitable habitat at lower elevations.
