Title: HarvardScience: Science and Engineering at Harvard University
Url: http://news.harvard.edu/gazette/section/science-n-health/
Publisher: Harvard Engineering Society
Harvard University
Description: Harvard's Science and Engineering Department website has much to offer, and even non-science and engineering folks will find a great deal to enjoy here. Visitors interested in the work being done to understand and hopefully cure cancer, will want to check out the "Breaking News" on the homepage. Articles such as "Using nanotechnology to improve a cancer treatment" and "New treatment extends life of melanoma patients by an average of four months in large clinical trial" can be read in full by clicking on the "full story" link at the end of each article's description on the homepage. A section called "In the Field" contains reports of Harvard students and professors working off campus. One of the more recent articles is entitled "I thought a bomb went off", and it is about a Harvard Medical School assistant professor who was in Haiti when the devastating January earthquake struck. Click on the photo next to the full story to see a makeshift clinic for 45,000 people. The doctor relays her feeling of helplessness when she was without supplies, without trained help, and the sheer number of injured. She resorted to using first aid kits from cars and cleverly used license plates she ripped off of cars to use as splints.
