Welcome to SUBR

A consortium of state and regional organizations dedicated to promoting a caring community through communication and collaboration.


This month's featured program is "What A Year", sponsored by the Massachusetts Society for Medical Research. Every month of the school year What A Year! presents a story about new breakthrough research in the life sciences. It is designed for engaged middle school students and high school students interested in biology.
Featured Program




Cool Science is Happening Now 

Why don't bears' bones get brittle when they hibernate? Could there be a vaccine to prevent tooth decay? Will a "tattoo" replace finger stick blood draws for people with diabetes? What's the relation between depression and addiction? Can narcolepsy be controlled or cured? What goes on in your brain during puberty? These and lots of other questions get asked and answered in What A Year! stories.

We want to show that research is continuous in every imaginable facet of the life sciences. We also want students to understand the incremental and collaborative nature of biomedical research, and the fact that people with all kinds of backgrounds and interests are doing crucial research around the country.

What A Year! is completely free, and each story is accompanied by a Student Worksheet or a To Go Deeper sheet. You can check out What A Year! at

The What A Year! stories are also being added to the APS Archive of Teaching Resources- where thousands of peer-reviewed materials from kindergarten to graduate school level are available at no charge.

SUBR will feature a state-based program of interest to the entire community each month.
We hope you will stay tuned.
