The pipeline model of STEM education conceives of underrepresentation by race, gender and class in terms of leaks that fail to deliver students to their destination in the science and technology workforce. But that model fails to consider the role of STEM in producing underrepresentation. This can only be solved by moving from the extractive approach of the pipeline model to a generative model in which the value produced by STEM students cycles back to their own communities. We report on our experience creating and evaluating Culturally Situated Design Tools. Using a framework of generative justice , we contrast the cyclic social damage, which reproduces underrepresentation with the potential for STEM education as a niche in the technosocial ecosystem that can address underrepresentation and causal factors.
The extended CEC network examined does not include all consortia focusing on cancer research but is highly representative of that segment of cancer research focusing on human populations to understand the causes of cancer and related outcomes. The CEC network is international in scope, allowing for the study of populations with diverse genetic background and lifestyles, and encompasses studies with a variety of designs, from familial to case-control to prospective cohorts. The geographic distribution of the participating teams is still showing underrepresentation in low-income regions, reflecting the need for infrastructure building to enrich the network to include populations with diverse genetic backgrounds, lifestyles, and cultures. This may also reflect the fact that NIH funds primarily USA-based investigators and a more in-depth analysis of other sources of funding for international groups may reveal a more comprehensive panorama of international consortia.

The studys invited discussant Kemp Kernstine, MD, PhD, the Robert Tucker Hayes Foundation Distinguished Chair in Cardiothoracic Surgery at The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, welcomed the findings, but expressed some concerns about the study. To begin, of a database of 94,708 lung cancer diagnoses, only 14,712 patients (15.5%) met the criteria for analysis, having complete information on R status and survival and having not received neoadjuvant chemotherapy.. Shouldnt this number be 100%? Dr. -Kernstine questioned. Statistically, thats a concern. It implies some serious database problems, and potential bias exists. We need to evaluate how we might improve participation.. In addition, the patients were diagnosed and treated between 1999 and 2010. Since that time, advances have been made in diagnosis, staging, surgical management, and surveillance, he pointed out. Other biases were also likely present, including an underrepresentation by continent; most patients ...

Show moreThis qualitative study focused on female college seniors and their choices about their science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) college majors and career choice at the college level. STEM fields have an underrepresentation of women in both the numbers of degrees awarded each year and the number of women participating at the career level (National Science Foundation (NSF), 2007). College is a crucial time to study womens STEM choices regarding majors and careers because women and men appear to be equally prepared for success in a STEM career when they enter college, but fewer women persist in these majors (NSF, 2007). This decrease in interest and persistence has been a phenomenon that policy makers and college administrators have tried to address. One of the prominent policy initiatives at the college level since 1990, has been single gender living and learning communities where women majoring in STEM fields live together on a dormitory floor. The program of focus in ...

Older data from SSc referral centers indicated that the male/female ratio was around 1:4-516,17, whereas clear differences in disease expression and/or progression between sexes were not identified. According to more recent data from several studies of ethnic cohorts21,23,24 and from a global analysis published in 200929, the male/female ratio is considerably lower (1:7-8). This difference suggests that a referral bias may be present in the older studies, due to underrepresentation of women with milder forms of SSc in the examined patient populations. On the other hand, few studies11,12,13,14,15 have attempted to directly address the differences in expression of SSc between men and women, and most of the available data represent circumstantial evidence, or at best, secondary outcomes of trials. Until now, data regarding the effect of sex on the clinical severity of SSc are limited and inconclusive. Existing data are also controversial regarding differences in survival: there are studies ...
As they have done in academia and in corporations, the diversity industry cannot stand the progress we have made towards a more race-neutral nation in the last few decades. They are the most retrograde force we have in this nation, holding us back from further progress. They have adopted the worse habits of the KKK short of lynching and cross burning. They refuse to even try to understand mixed race people, promoting the one-drop rule. They say nothing when certain areas are over-represented by their preferred ethnic groups, but go in to high dungeon when there is an underrepresentation somewhere else - as long as things are positive - as they define it. Only negative comment are allowed from them - as they define it. All else must be silenced. ...

As noted by the Food and Drug Administrations (FDA) Office of Minority Health, genetic differences can make a cancer treatment more toxic in one ethnic group than it would be in another. These variations can also make drugs like antidepressants and blood-pressure medications less effective in one group than another. For this reason, it is vitally important that the process used to test the effectiveness of new medicines accurately reflects the patient population that will eventually take them.. Clinical trials are also an important piece of the scientific framework of evidence-based medicine, which inform clinical guidelines and quality measures that direct how we manage most medical disorders. Unfortunately, the underrepresentation of African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Native American and Asian Americans in clinical trials can mean that those guidelines and quality measures are frequently silent or must rely on lower levels of evidence to determine their benefit for minority ...
Background: The underrepresentation of women in academic medicine at senior level and in leadership positions is well documented. In the United Kingdom, the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) announced that eligibility for funding for Biomedical Research Centres (BRCs) required at least Silver award status of the Athena SWAN Charter. However, the evidence base for monitoring gender equity (GE) in BRCs is underdeveloped. Methods: An exploratory online survey distributed to an entire population of NIHR Oxford BRC affiliates (N=683) who ranked the importance of 13 markers of GE on a five point Likert scale. Data were summarised using frequencies and descriptive statistics. Interrelationships between the markers and underlying latent dimensions (factors) were determined by exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses. Thematic analysis was used to analyse open-ended comments. Results: The response rate was 36% (243 respondents). Respondents were more frequently female (55%, n=133), aged 41-50

Background. Assessment of the age-dependent cancer risk conferred by germline predicted pathogenic variants (PPV) in cancer susceptibility genes is often hampered by the way the data are collected. Cohort-based data frequently contain an overrepresentation of patients carrying a gene variant of interest and an underrepresentation of cancer-free gene variant carriers. In order to overcome this problem, penetrance estimates can be grounded on family-based study designs, through the evaluation of index patients (IP) and their family relatives. The purpose of the TUMOSPEC study is to estimate the penetrance of PPV in genes whose literature data are currently inaccurate or limited and to determine their associated tumour spectrum. This will lead to an appropriate assessment of the clinical utility of testing these genes. Methods. IP are enrolled consecutively among patients who are being offered a germline genetic test in a hereditary breast and ovary cancer (HBOC) context in a participating cancer genetics
Heres the problem. When you do linear regression on a small number of datapoints (which is all a person has, given that they dont observe that many interactions) youre going to have huge uncertainty in the inferred values. To illustrate this, I ran a simulation using the model above with two groups, call them A and B, each half the population. I set the parameters so there was a strong discrimination effect against B. Specifically, even though A and B are equal along other dimensions, the average person in A will be ranked higher than about two thirds of people in B, due solely to discrimination; if you look at people in the top 5%, less than a third will be B. So this is enough discrimination to produce substantial underrepresentation. But when we try to infer the value of the discrimination coefficient, we cant be sure theres discrimination. In the plot below, the horizontal axis is how many interactions we observe; the blue area shows the 95% confidence interval for the discrimination ...

The results of this study illustrate the remarkable regenerative capacity of the skeletal muscle of young mice to ischemic injury. The muscles most affected by FAL were the soleus and gastrocnemius of the lower leg. There was also evidence of ischemic injury in the thigh, but to a lesser extent. During the first 3 days following surgery, there was microscopic evidence of muscle damage and a pronounced loss of function. By day 7, the histological evidence showed a substantial resolution of the injury, and contractile force had been essentially normalized. By 28 days the muscles microscopic appearance was largely restored to baseline. Consistent with these findings is the fact that of the 1,289 known transcripts we identified as differentially expressed between ligated and sham surgery controls, none were induced or repressed by the day 28 time point.. Because the gene expression results are too extensive to be discussed in a single paper, we present selective results from the data set that we ...

Dr. Ranga visited the Einstein AITRP twice, once in 2003 and the other time in 2004 to initiate studies on HIV-associated dementia and its correlation to HIV-1 viral subtype differences. In collaboration with Dr. Vinayaka Prasad at Einstein AITRP, Dr. Ranga and his students examined the effect of a natural single amino acid variation in the Tat protein of clade C of HIV-1 on the transactivation and chemokine properties. This collaboration resulted in the identification of the defective chemokine nature of clade C Tat protein and led to the proposition that this variation might contribute to the underrepresentation of HIV-associated dementia in India. This hypothesis garnered much experimental support subsequently by various research groups including that of Dr. Prasads. Dr. Pankaj Serhs laboratory at National Brain Research Centre, New Delhi, India took cue from the hypothesis and investigated into the cytotoxic properties of Tat proteins of viral clades on primary human neurons. Dr. Seths ...
Purpose: : In animal models for bacterial corneal ulcers, high IL-10 levels were associated with a better clinical outcome. We investigated whether IL-10 promotor polymorphisms, known to influence IL-10 expression in vitro, were associated with susceptibility to and/or clinical outcome of bacterial corneal ulcers. Methods: : IL-10 promotor polymorphisms C-819T, G-1082A, A-2763C, and A-2849G were determined in 83 patients with bacterial corneal ulcers and 115 healthy controls by restriction fragment length PCR analysis. For 63 patients and all healthy controls IL-10 haplotypes could be inferred using the program SNPHAP. Results: : A significant underrepresentation of the A-2849A genotype was observed in the patient group compared to healthy controls. Both the -2763A allele and the IL-10.1 haplotype were associated with a poor clinical outcome. While the IL-10.2 haplotype was associated with a better clinical course. Conclusions: : IL-10 promotor polymorphisms that are associated with low IL-10 ...
IRI. Warm renal ischemia-reperfusion injury was performed on 10- to 12-week-old (25-28 g) C57BL/6CN male mice from Charles River. All the mice received an intraperitoneal injection of a ketamine/xylazine mix (105 mg ketamine/kg; 10 mg xylazine/kg), and body temperature was maintained at 36°C throughout the procedure. Midline abdominal incision was performed for the exposure of both renal pedicles, which were clamped for 21 minutes using nontraumatic microaneurysm clips (Roboz Surgical Instrument Co.). Occlusion of blood flow was monitored by color change from normal to dark purple immediately after the clamping; blood returned to its normal original color after removal of the clamps. Mice underwent the same procedure; mice with clamping of the pedicles were used as sham surgery controls.. RNA-seq. RNA samples were provided to the University of Southern California Epigenome Center Data Production Core Facility for library construction and sequencing. RNA integrity was verified by Bio-Rad ...
