What better way to celebrate the New Year than with a new social media contest! Throughout the month of January, ORISE wants to know your best at-home STEM activities that students can complete from the comfort of their homes. Also, ORISE is asking you to whip out those ol’ excel sheets and graphing calculators for this month’s lesson plan competition! Click through to the Competitions for Educators page for more details!
ORISE cytogenetic researchers have developed an online training tool to create a pool of efficient scorers who, in times of need, could assist the ORISE Cytogenetic Biodosimetry Laboratory (CBL) by scoring samples to assess absorbed radiation dose in exposed individuals.
REAC/TS Cytogenetic Biodosimetry Laboratory Director Dr. Adayabalam Balajee co-authored a manuscript, titled “Radiation-induced DNA damage and repair effects on 3D genome organization,” for the Journal of Nature Communications describing how the authors used genetic, molecular and computational approaches to explore how the human 3D genome responds to ionizing radiation exposure.
Katherine McCormick was able to put her passion for physics and math into practice by participating in a fellowship through the Intelligence Community (IC) Postdoctoral Research Participation Program. The IC Postdoc Program offers scientists and engineers from a wide variety of disciplines unique opportunities to conduct research relevant to the Intelligence Community.
