Cancer and Cell Fate

Keri Shingleton explains how she uses the BioInteractive animation on cancer and cell fate to spark curiosity in her students and encourage exploration of a topic.

Sequencing HHMI BioInteractive Cancer Resources

Why don’t we have a cure for cancer? In this blog post, higher ed instructor Holly Basta discusses how she sequences BioInteractive cancer resources to get her students to think about big questions in how cell division is regulated — and how understanding regulation can guide drug design.

Cystic Fibrosis Mechanism and Treatment

This animation shows how mutations in an ion channel protein lead to the genetic disease cystic fibrosis. The animation also discusses how research on this protein has been used to develop treatments for the disease.
