Progress Report I Each of the students in the group brought with them a project about which they were clearly passionate. Since there are six students in the group, one of our primary goals was to narrow the six projects down to the three that would have the greatest impact, be the most feasible, and be the most interesting. To do this, the students continued researching the projects they brought with them, and also worked to learn about and contribute to their teammates projects. As a result, the first few sessions consisted of trying to work out the details of these individual projects and assessing the merits and possible pitfalls of each. “M” was interested in designing a bacterial system that would circulate in the blood and regulate diabetes. To treat type I diabetes, she proposed a system that would sense the amount of glucose in the blood stream and secrete insulin if glucose levels became too high. She had also put some thought into a system that would alleviate type II diabetes, which would be rather more complex than the type I system. This raised the question of whether the type II system should be pursued because it is an interesting and difficult problem to solve, or whether the problem what simply too difficult, and our efforts would be better spent trying to make the type I system work.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
