Transcript: Teacher in the Spotlight Professor David Kaplan helped in make revolutionary steps in the medical world with the use of silk. "Researchers at the Tufts University School of Engineering have discovered a way to maintain the potency of vaccines and other drugs (that otherwise require refrigeration) for months and possibly years at temperatures above 110 degrees F, by stabilising them in a silk protein made from silkworm cocoons. This could be a universal storage and handling system." -Technology Times (September 9, 2012) The Impact "International health experts estimate that nearly half of all global vaccines are lost due to breakdowns in the 'cold chain'." -Technology Times cold chain is the temperature that vaccines must be stored in so that the vaccines do not become inactive important for shipping vaccines to other countries with hot climates If cold chains are not properly maintained diseases may spread quickly From an article by Martin Yakum Tufts is involved and concerned with foreign relations and wants to help struggling nations "Measles is one of the leading killers of children worldwide. Without refrigeration, the MMR vaccine rapidly loses potency. But after six months of storage in freeze-dried silk films at body temperature (37 C) and at 113 F (45 C), all components of the vaccine retained approximately 85 percent of their initial potency." -Technology Times Measles is one of the leading causes of death among young children even though a safe and cost-effective vaccine is available. In 2013, there were 145 700 measles deaths globally – about 400 deaths every day or 16 deaths every hour. from World Health Organization "Jeney Zhang, a graduate student from Tufts University, working in the lab of silk maestro David Kaplan, showed that silk can stabilise two antibiotics - penicillin and tetracycline - as well as the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine." -Technology Times she is now Professor Kaplan's adviser students appreciate their time at tufts and after graduation want to stay involved with the Tufts atmosphere Tufts has programs to help graduates get jobs internship opportunities are very helpful Job outlook for Biomedical Engineers looks quite promising Job possibilities: Tissue Engineering for Bone and Cartilage Replacement Advanced Polymeric Materials Characterization and Rheology Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Cells, Tissues, and Organisms Plasma Reaction Engineering for Pollution Control and Disinfection Biomass Conversion to Energy by Enzymatic/Catalytic/Thermal/Plasma Methods Advanced Computational Methods in Materials, Catalysis, and Transport Solid State Materials Synthesis and Characterization Average Salary of a Biomedical Engineer: $86,960 Can range from $52,600-$124,000 In America at this time there is a movement being made to get more females to get involved in engineering The job outlook for females in biomedical engineering is even higher than for males because of this Engineer Girl Not too far from home but not too close to from home Suburban school Family friend attended Tufts really enjoyed the school and recommended it 99% of Classes are taught by professors 19% acceptance rate Average class size:20 and 9:1 student to teacher ratio and in the engineering program it is 7:1 allows students to obtain good relationships with the professors- which will help with getting a job out of college a plethora of study abroad opportunities available and encouraged Roughly 5,255 undergraduates and 10,837 total students medium sized college Is part of the "Little Ivies" Ranked #15 in research universities by Forbes Has the rare campus style of being both a liberal arts college as well as a research college Must have a certain number of credits in specific areas such as English and Math however these courses can be chosen by the student based on their strengths #27 of national Universities and #28 for best value by U.S. News 50 to 50 male to female ratio No cars or pets on campus 23% instate and 77% out of state Fenway Park about 5 miles from Medford campus student discount for tickets to TD Garden and Fenway Park Tons of events on campus Homecoming game (hosted by Greek Life) Theater Productions Dancing Spring Fling Freshmen and Sophomores required to live on Campus and Juniors and Seniors are not guaranteed on campus housing special interest group housing Bush Hall dorms a double is 12 feet by 16 feet Internships, work study, and student jobs available and encouraged Tufts was established in 1852 Boston businessman Charles Tufts gave land to the Universalist Church to start a college in the 1840s Universalists believe in eventual holiness and happiness of all the human race, as revealed to the world in the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ this has become a policy of Tufts 1852 the Commonwealth of Massachusetts chartered Tufts 1954 Tufts went from "Tufts College" to "Tufts University" Mascot Jumbo the elephant was a real animal one of the only mascots found in the Webster Dictionary PT

Transcript: In 1852 ,Tufts college was founded by Christian Universalists who worked for years to open a non-sectarian institution of higher learning.The French-american nutritionist Jean Mayer became president of Tufts in the late 1970s and,through a series of rapid acquisitions, transformed the school into an internationally renowned research university.In the 1840s, the Unilateralist church wanted to open a college in New England, and in 1852, Charles Tufts donated 20 acres to the church to help them achieve this goal.Tufts expanded in the 1930s with the opening of the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, the first graduate school of international affairs in the United States and a collaboration with Harvard University. My college supply list includes many things like the following:Bathroom supplies Foot wear clothes Jackets Laundry basket mini fridge dishes utensils laundry detergent trash can bath towels TV drinks snacks power strips laptop printer book shelf bedding wall decorations art supplies lamp make up camera.The total volume will be 230.80 ft cubic units.I will need 15 boxes for all of my belongings. photo credit Nasa / Goddard Space Flight Center / Reto Stöckli I choose Tufts University as my collage beacouse when i grow up i want to study medicine.And also because when i was in fourth grade i got to go and explore the collage.And most importantly i saw students happy as they started and ended there classes.

To continue my work with eating disorder prevention, I traveled to DC to lobby for the FREED Act. And Panama, where I lived in a rural community for six weeks B E I N G Costa Rica... My life so far has been a whirlwind. In my first seventeen years on the planet I have learned much about myself and the world around me-- and I am eager to learn more.

"YD programs are marked by the "Big 3" characteristics (1) positive and sustained adult-youth relations; (2) life skills-building activities for youth; and (3) opportunities for youth participation in and leadership of valued community activities...longitudinally, PYD predicts both community contributions and lessened likelihood of risk/problem behaviors.

Yet, many of the principles associated with contemporary conceptualizations of development found in the positive youth development (PYD) and community psychology (CP) literature have yet to be fully integrated into mentoring research and practice. These approaches place greater emphasis on youth as assets to their communities and the promotion of positive development through the cultivation of these assets, often by fostering collaborative partnerships between youth and adults to effect social change. 5 Our vision is to inspire, engage and transform the communities of Mass Bay by helping youth achieve their full potential, contributing to healthier families, better schools, brighter futures and stronger communities Mission Statement The mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Massachusetts Bay is to partner with under-resourced families to provide their children with transformational, one-to-one professionally-supported relationships with caring adult mentors, so that their children will thrive 1.
