The Submarine Force in Joint Operations

By: Christopher J. Kelly

Excerpt: I am a career Naval Officer who served on four submarines over the last 13 years. My experience includes nine years of sea duty on both fast attack (SSN) and fleet ballistic missile (SSBN) submarines. I’ve had the good fortune to conduct almost every submarine mission there is. The majority of my ‘time on the pond’ occurred prior to the wall coming down and I learned most of my operational skills while going up against the bad guys. I am very proud to have serve...

Innovations New Microscope Gives Scientists

By: Jennifer Medlin

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: Scientists at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) in Richland, Washington, have teamed together to develop a unique imaging system capable of focusing on a single living cell. This new technology will be used in what the multidisciplinary team has termed a ?cellular observatory? to study the effects of environmental insults on live cells. The new technology combines nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) technology with optical microscopy to deliver informati...

Physical and Biological Studies of Coal and Oil Fly Ash

By: Gerald L. Fisher

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: Associated with the generation of electricity by fossil fuel combustion is the production and subsequent environmental release of primary particulate matter. This material, fly ash, presently poses a major solid waste disposal problem and a potential health hazard. The ash from coal combustion is primarily aluminosilicate in matrix and contains surface layers of vapor-deposited inorganic and organic compounds. Furthermore, interparticle chemical variability is s...

Heavy Metals in the Environment II : Overview

By: Bruce A. Fowler

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: The second Research Triangle Conference on Heavy Metals in the Environment was held to further highlight the many diverse aspects of trace metal research currently being conducted by area scientists. The meeting also provided a means for focusing the common interests of these investigators into a more formal organization called the Environmental Metals Group. The biological effects of toxic trace metals in both marine and agricultural ecosystems as well as aspec...

Spheres of Influence the Nexttarget Ofbioterrorism

By: United Nations

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: When someone cultivates pathogenic bacteria, fungi, viruses, or certain chemical compounds specifically to kill people or transmit disease, thats biological warfare. A lesserknown form of biological warfare targets major food crops instead of people, and carries the potential to wreak environmental health havoc. After health care, agriculture has been the largest market to benefit from genomic research and biotechnology. But while the ability to diagnose plant d...

By: United Nations

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: Extraordinary advances in the visualization of biologic structures have been achieved within the past five years. Improvements in imaging platforms, reporters, and detectors have provided markedly enhanced spatial and temporal resolution of biologic events in living systems. The recent tremendous rise in computer power and data-handling capacity has supplied the foundation for progress in diverse imaging modalities, ranging from light microscopy of signaling ele...

Radiation Dosimetry

By: John Cameron

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: Definition of Ionizing Radiation Ionizing radiation includes any electromagnetic or particle radiation with sufficient energy to ionize common molecules. In this article I will consider only the electromagnetic component, specifically X-rays and gamma rays, encountered in the medical area. Radiation Quantities and Units The evolution of terminology in radiation dosimetry finds us in a state of transition. We are going from old units, which have been used for man...

Methods and Approaches for Assessing Immunotoxicity : An Overview

By: Jack H. Dean

Government Reference Publication

Introduction: A major objective of the National Toxicology Program (NTP) and a major effort at NIEHS is to examine a variety of in viva and in vitro approaches to assess toxicity as well as newer research disciplines for evaluating chemicals of environmental concern. Immunology represents one of the disciplines that the NTP is employing to examine possible target organ toxicity as well as generalized toxicity at the cellular and molecular level. Furthermore, the effects ...

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: lnt reduction Monitoring our environment for heavy metal pollution requires reliable and accurate analytical methods. Methods must also be developed for those metals which are not at the present sources of pollution hut could become so through changes in technology and increased industrial usage. The use of catalytic converters on U.S. automobiles has projected platinum and palladium into the role of possible environmental pollutants. It is necessary to establis...

General Approach to the Biological Analysis of Complex Mixtures

By: William G. Thilly

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: The study of potential health effects of combustion effluents involves identifying the substances present and estimating the probable health hazards of each. Unfortunately, there are no methods which permit sufficiently precise or sensitive estimates of health hazards. We are presently using techniques for which we have no means of independently assessing accuracy. In our programs at MIT, we have chosen bacterial and human cell mutation assays as a means of meas...

Database Development in Toxicogenomics : Issues and Efforts

By: William B. Mattes

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: The marriage of toxicology and genomics has created not only opportunities but also novel informatics challenges. As with the larger field of gene expression analysis, toxicogenomics faces the problems of probe annotation and data comparison across different array platforms. Toxicogenomics studies are generally built on standard toxicology studies generating biological end point data, and as such, one goal of toxicogenomics is to detect relationships between cha...

Conformational Analysis of Environmental Agents : Use of X-Ray Cry...

By: Vivian Cody

Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: Many strategies have been employed to understand the molecular reactivities of small molecule substrates acting at their target sites. The premise underlying the development of structure-activity relationships is that the correlations that exist between molecular structure (or molecular shape) and observed biological responses are the result of these substrates (hormones, drugs, metabolites, agonists, antagonists, etc.) interacting with their macromolecular targ...
