Welcome to SUBR
A consortium of state and regional organizations dedicated to promoting a caring community through communication and collaboration.
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 http://www.whatayear.org
The What A Year! stories are also being added to the APS Archive of Teaching Resources- http://www.apsarchive.org/index.cfm where thousands of peer-reviewed materials from kindergarten to graduate school level are available at no charge.
Subscribe to the monthly What A Year! reminder or click on the site each month to see what new territory we're talking about now.
SUBR will feature a state-based program of interest to the entire
community each month.
We hope you will stay tuned.
