About Buzzards Bay
map
Buzzards Bay is located in southern Massachusetts along the north western side of the Cape Cod Canal. The tidal salt water bay is bordered on its entire east side by the towns of Upper Cape Cod and on its entire west side by 6 towns in southernmost Massachusetts. Buzzards Bay was established by Congress in 1985 as an "Estuary of National Significance".

The bay is home to many water and land recreational activities. On the water they include sailing and fishing, swimming and sunbathing. On the vast land surrounding Buzzards Bay you can visit State Forests and Reservations and take part in field trips based on nature and environmental studies. There are also numerous hiking and bike trails that lead to the bay from all of the surrounding communities.

Plan to attend or participate in the Buzzards Bay Regatta or just spend a leisurely vacation in and around Buzzards Bay. It will prove to be a memorable and pleasurable experience.

Pluripotency and Reprogramming Symposium

Human pluripotent stem cells possess the ability to self renew in vitro while maintaining a developmental plasticity that is similar to that exhibited by progenitor cells of the very early embryo. As a result, pluripotent stem cells may provide an inexhaustible supply of any differentiated cell type for both in vitro studies of disease and regenerative medicine.

The discovery of reprogramming methods that rely on defined transcription factors and their use in the derivation of patient-specific iPS cell lines have greatly expanded the potential utility of pluripotent cells. Patient-specific iPS cells have already enabled in vitro studies of diseases including spinal muscular atrophy, familial dysautonomia and LEOPARD syndrome. Future applications of human pluripotent stem cell lines could also include the study of common diseases that arise as the result of complex interactions between a patient’s genotype and their environment. Finally, pluripotent cells will eventually serve as a renewable source of both autologous cells and tissue for transplantation and regenerative medicine.

Our inaugural symposium will feature world leaders who will describe their latest advances in stem cell biology and reprogramming.

As Our Parents Age: A Roadmap for the Caregiving Journey
Mom or Dad may be healthy and independent now, but at some point you may well find yourself in the role of caregiver. This seminar will provide a general overview of issues and services to help you plan ahead and avoid pitfalls down the road. You'll learn about the cost of long-term care, and about Medicare, Medicaid, and long term care insurance. You'll come away with a much better idea of how to access community resources, assess different care options, and broach the topic of care preferences with siblings and with a parent in a way that decreases resistance and enhances the likelihood of a positive outcome.

Theoretical models of tidal dissipation in Io's interior have provided support for a global subsurface melt layer. The extremely high temperature of the lava erupting on Io's surface also hints at an extremely hot interior consistent with an internal magma ocean. However, the only direct evidence of a subsurface magma ocean in Io is provided by the electromagnetic induction response observed by Galileo.
In this presentation, after summarizing our current knowledge of Io's interior from Galileo's induction measurements, I will outline a scheme to further infer properties of Io's interior, especially its internal temperature profile, by marrying the principles of thermodynamics with those of electromagnetism. In particular, we would obtain guidance on stable mineral phases and their physical properties (such as density, melt state and electrical conductivity) from thermodynamic principles whereas how the resulting internal conductivity profile affects the magnetic environment around Io from electromagnetic theory. I will also explore how induction measurements could be obtained at multiple frequencies from a future mission and be used to constrain both the location and the thickness of the magma ocean.
Finally, I will explore the consequences of the global magma ocean of Io on its physical properties such as the current sites of tidal energy dissipation, the absence of an internal magnetic field and a lack of plate tectonics on its surface.
