    Using the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award in Teaching: One Criteria, Several Perspectives,

    DECISION SCIENCES JOURNAL OF INNOVATIVE EDUCATION, Issue 2 2004
    James A. Belohlav
    ABSTRACT The Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award (MBNQA) has influenced the thinking and operations within organizations from all sectors of the American economy. This paper presents the experiences of three faculty members who have used the Criteria for Performance Excellence and the underlying concepts of the MBNQA to enhance the learning experiences of their students. The authors discuss how Dale's Cone of Experience is employed, by means of concrete exercises and experiences, to better leverage the student's ability to understand the abstract concepts. The formal, end-of-term student evaluations indicate that the described approach has led to a higher level of student engagement in the learning process, as evidenced by more abundant and higher-quality feedback to the instructors.

    STRATEGIES AND NEED FOR SYSTEMS CHANGE

    FAMILY COURT REVIEW, Issue 2 2000
    Improving Court Practice for the Millennium
    Chief Judge Judith S. Kaye of New York delivered the following address to the Millennium Conference of the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges in Washington, D.C., on November 15, 1999. In it, she describes the development of the philosophy of the family court in the past century. Judge Kaye describes the family court's transition from reliance on social science to the incorporation of procedural due process guarantees in the Gault decision. She suggests that a further transformation is required to meet the needs of children and families in the 21st century. Judge Kaye proposes that in the next millennium the family court abandon the "remote adjudicator" judge who evolved after Gault to a "problem-solving model of judging, a judge who looks at the issues that are driving the caseload, who looks at the results that are being achieved, and who uses a hands-on style to figure out how we might do better both in individual cases and on a systemic level." The New York Times described Chief Justice Kaye as, "A dedicated and effective reformer of the state's sprawling court system. Each of her hard won changes has had a positive impact." Chief Judge Kaye recently received the National Center for State Courts' William H. Rhenquist Award for Judicial Excellence in November 1999. On the occasion of the award, Roger K. Warren, president of the National Center, observed about her,"There are many who are working hard to better process the many cases that come before the state courts, but there are few working an harder or more successfully to better serve the people who use the state courts."

    Emergence of New Mechanical Functionality in Materials via Size Reduction

    ADVANCED FUNCTIONAL MATERIALS, Issue 18 2009
    Julia R. Greer
    Abstract Julia R. Greer received her S.B. in Chemical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (1997) and a Ph.D. in Materials Science from Stanford University, where she worked on the nanoscale plasticity of gold with W. D. Nix (2005). She also worked at Intel Corporation in Mask Operations (2000,03) and was a post-doctoral fellow at the Palo Alto Research Center (2005,07), where she worked on organic flexible electronics with R. A. Street. Greer is a recipient of TR-35, Technology Review's Top Young Innovator award (2008), a NSF CAREER Award (2007), a Gold Materials Research Society Graduate Student Award (2004), and an American Association of University Women Fellowship (2003). Julia joined Caltech's Materials Science department in 2007 where she is developing innovative experimental techniques to assess mechanical properties of nanometer-sized materials. One such approach involves the fabrication of nanopillars with different initial microstructures and diameters between 25,nm and 1,µm by using focused ion beam and electron-beam lithography microfabrication. The mechanical response of these pillars is subsequently measured in a custom-built in situ mechanical deformation instrument, SEMentor, comprising a scanning electron microscope and a nanoindenter.

    MBSJ MCC Young Scientist Award 2009 REVIEW: Selective autophagy regulates various cellular functions

    GENES TO CELLS, Issue 9 2010
    Masaaki Komatsu
    Autophagy is a self-eating system conserved among eukaryotes, in which cellular components including organelles are entrapped into a double membrane structure called the autophagosome and then degraded by lysosomal hydrolases. In addition to its role in supplying amino acids in response to nutrient starvation, autophagy is involved in quality control to maintain cell health. Thus, inactivation of autophagy causes the formation of cytoplasmic protein inclusions, which comprise misfolded proteins and the accumulation of many degenerated organelles, resulting in liver injury, diabetes, myopathy and neurodegeneration. Furthermore, although autophagy has been considered nonselective, increasing evidence points to the selectivity of autophagy in sorting vacuolar enzymes and removal of aggregate-prone proteins and unwanted organelles. Such selectivity allows diverse cellular regulation, similar to the ubiquitin proteasome pathway. In this review, we discuss the physiological roles of selective autophagy and their molecular mechanisms. [source]


    MBSJ MCC Young Scientist Award 2009 REVIEW: Structural basis of protein disulfide bond generation in the cell

    GENES TO CELLS, Issue 9 2010
    Kenji Inaba
    The formation of protein disulfide bonds is an oxidative reaction that is crucial for the folding and maturation of many secreted and membrane proteins. Both prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells possess various disulfide oxidoreductases and redox-active cofactors to accelerate this oxidative reaction in a correct manner. Crystal or solution structures have been solved for some of the oxidoreductases in the past 10 years, leading to remarkable progress in the field of thiol-based redox cell biology. Consequently, structural and mechanistic similarities in the disulfide bond formation pathways have been uncovered. This review highlights the molecular basis of the elaborate oxidative systems operating in the Escherichia coli periplasm, the endoplasmic reticulum lumen and the mitochondrial intermembrane space. The accumulated knowledge provides important insights into how protein and redox homeostasis are maintained in the cell. [source]

    From collagen chemistry towards cell therapy , a personal journey

    INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF EXPERIMENTAL PATHOLOGY, Issue 4 2007
    Michael E. Grant
    Summary The Fell,Muir Award requires the recipient to deliver a lecture and a review manuscript which provides a personal overview of significant scientific developments in the field of matrix biology over the period of the recipient's career. In this context, this review considers the collagen family of structural proteins and the advances in biochemical, molecular biological and genetic techniques which led to the elucidation of the structure, synthesis and function of this important group of extracellular matrix constituents. Particular attention is focussed on early research on the identification and assembly of the soluble precursors of collagen types I and II, and the identification of the precursor of basement membrane collagen type IV. In subsequent studies investigating the maintenance of the chick chondrocyte phenotype in culture, the influence of the extracellular milieu was found to influence markedly both cell morphology and collagen gene expression. These studies led to the discovery of collagen type X whose expression is restricted to hypertrophic chondrocytes at sites of endochondral ossification. Such research provided a prelude to investigations of mammalian endochondral ossification which is known to be aberrant in a variety of human chondrodysplasias and is reactivated in bone fracture repair and in osteoarthritis. The cloning of bovine and then human collagen type X genes facilitated studies in relevant human diseases and contributed to the discovery of mutations in the COL10A1 gene in families with metaphyseal chondrodysplasia type Schmid. Clustering of mutations in the C-terminal domain of the type X collagen molecule has now been widely documented and investigations of the pathogenic mechanisms in animal models are beginning to suggest the prospect of novel treatment strategies.
