It's a great opportunity to gain experience writing for print and online, including news and feature writing, video and social media. Applicants should have experience in writing for publications (online or print) and an interest in journalism. Video and photography skills are a plus. Interns must enroll in an internship course (in the English department or LAS) for elective credit.

  • WISE: How Will You Cure Heart Disease? Lecture, Wed. 9/24

    The Women in Science & Engineering Program invites you to

    How Will You Cure Heart Disease?

    Heart disease is the leading cause of death for women and men (1 in 4 for both groups). Come learn from three scientists who are working to cure heart disease from their own perspective in bioengineering, mathematics, and medicine. Find your place on the continuum of eliminating this killer disease.

    Wednesday, September 24th
    2:00 PM in Lecture Center A4

    Speakers include:
    Dr. Brenda Russell, Professor Emerita of Physiology and Biophysics, and formerly Professor of Bioengineering and Medicine. Dr. Russell's scientific training, background, experience, and productivity encompass a range of disciplines and forge linkages in the continuum between quantitative biology, bioengineering and physiology. Her current NIH support funds two collaborative projects, one on heart failure for regulation of protein synthesis and remodeling of cell shape, and the other for tissue engineering with development of a novel cell culture system using bioengineering and surface chemistry modification. Many of her studies have been done in close collaboration with clinicians (heart failure, muscular dystrophies, urinary incontinence).

    Dr. Daniela Valdez-Jasso, Assistant Professor of Bioengineering. The research goal of D. Valdez-Jasso's group focuses on soft-tissue biomechanics and multi-scale mathematical modeling of organ and tissue function, particularly as they pertain to understanding the vascular adaptations to pulmonary hypertension (PH). PH is a progressive vasculopathy that commonly results in intractable right-heart failure and premature death.

    Dr. Joan Briller, Associate Professor of Medicine. Dr. Briller is a cardiologist with a research interest in gender differences in cardiac risk factors and therapy, says up to 80 percent of heart disease in women may be preventable. Briller, who directs UI Health’s Heart Disease in Women Program, notes that the way plaque forms in the arteries is different in females — and that recent studies suggest better ways to prevent and treat heart disease in women. She has also worked with hundreds of women facing cardiac complications during pregnancy.
