The future of is in good hands. Read more about our forensics figure sculpting class and check out our partners.
Students in forensic figure sculpting class make portraits from the inside out The 15 students in the special topics class Facial Reconstruction started the semester with a generic plastic skull. Week by week, they sculpted different parts of their own faces, creating a portrait of themselves in clay and learning the forensic skills needed to put a face on a skull.
continues our celebration with today’s highlight, Rachel Carson (1907–1964). Carson was an ecologist, marine biologist, and writer. She's most famous for her 1962 book "Silent Spring," in which she thoroughly researched and described the harm humans cause to the environment by using pesticides indiscriminately. It was a catalyst for the environmental movement, which led to the formation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Today's features Susan Mulroney, Affiliate Faculty, GeorgeSquared ABS, Professor, Georgetown University Department of Pharmacology and Physiology, Associate Dean for Preclinical Sciences and Interdisciplinary Medical Programs, Georgetown University. Mulroney’s biomedical research focused on kidney growth and development, mechanisms of diabetic renal damage and hypertension. She now focuses her research on pedagogy, specifically for using active learning methods and technology in graduate and medical courses. She has also helped design courses on how to teach science courses effectively. While she originally went to Georgetown for biomedical research, she found her passion for teaching. This passion has transferred to her work in the GeorgeSquared program, where she has helped dozens of student cohorts achieve their educational goals. Mulroney is also co-author (with Adam Myers) of Netter's Essential Physiology, Netter's Physiology Coloring Book, and Netter's Essential Physiology Flash Cards.

Allow them to reintroduce themselves: meet the Smithsonian’s National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute's golden-headed lion tamarins Tom and Carmen! 🐵🙉
The 8-month-old male twins recently received their names. Tom was named in memory of Dr. Thomas Lovejoy, renowned conservationist, member of the National Zoo Advisory Board, Department of Environmental Science and Policy, George Mason University Professor, co-founder of the Institute for a Sustainable Earth, and Carmen was named for Carmen Thorndike, Lovejoy’s longtime Director of Operations. Tom’s fur has a golden hue, and Carmen has a white patch on his tail.
Tom and Carmen are the first of their endangered species born at the Zoo in 16 years. Less than 6,000 remain in Brazil due to deforestation. Read more: https://go.gmu.edu/GHLTs
