Student interest in STEM careers increases with parental involvement. When parents lack confidence in STEM content, or language and cultural barriers exist, parent engagement decreases. In this case study, we follow elementary teachers as they develop an annual Science Night program at a majority-minority school. We investigated if: 1) providing Science Night planning tools and resources would empower teachers to create an annual Science Night program at their school and 2) teacher participation...

The individual development plan (IDP) is a career planning tool that assists PhD trainees in self-assessing skills, exploring career paths, developing short- and long-term career goals, and creating action plans to achieve those goals. The National Institutes of Health and many academic institutions have created policies that mandate completion of the IDP by both graduate students and postdoctoral researchers. Despite these policies, little information exists regarding how well the tool is used ...

Background: The Individual Development Plan (IDP) was introduced as a tool to aid in career planning for doctoral trainees. Despite the National Institutes of Health and academic institutions creating policies that mandate the use of IDPs, little information exists regarding the use and effectiveness of the career planning tool. Methods: We conducted a multi-institutional, online survey to measure IDP use and effectiveness. The survey was distributed to potential respondents via social media and...
With mental illness a growing concern within graduate education, data from a new survey should prompt both academia and policy makers to consider intervention strategies.

There is a growing cry for help from graduate students and postdoctoral fellows (trainees) across the globe who struggle with significant mental health concerns. Although there has been increased discussion, there remains a dire need to resolve our understanding of the mental health issues in the trainee population. Recent research has been focused on within-institution cohorts, such as the 2014 UC Berkeley Graduate Student Happiness and Well-being Report which found that 43–46% of graduate stud...

Science outreach improves science literacy among the public and communication skills of scientists. However, despite the array of well-documented benefits, robust outreach efforts are often absent from communities which stand to benefit the most from these initiatives. Here, we introduce “Science Fiesta,” a graduate student-led outreach initiative which utilizes cultural traditions of South Texas as a vehicle to establish self-sustaining interactions between scientists and their local community....

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive and fatal neurological disease characterized by degeneration and death of motor neurons. Aberrant protein aggregation and oxidative stress are implicated in the etiology of ALS; thus preventing propagation of early aggregation events and oxidative damage could be an effective therapy. We tested the effect of dietary supplementation (initiated 40 days of age) with 2-(2-hydroxyphenyl)-benzoxazole (HBX), a compound with metal chelator and anti-ag...
