Click the link above to see a 10 minute documentary touching on the history of radiology and the career of radiography (2 year program).

For those who pursue more in-depth studies, the careers of radiologist (a type of doctor/physician) and research scientist are available. On Wednesday, October 1st, David Saloner Ph.D., will talk to the Marin Science Seminar about radiologic techniques related to cardiovascular disease.

Welcome to the Marin Science Seminar Blog! This blog is open for students, parents, teachers and MSS speakers to post and comment on items of interest in the fields of science, math, engineering, medicine, statistics and related fields.

We are currently recruiting staff to contribute to the blog. If you are a high school student in the San Rafael High School district and are interested, please email me at marinscienceseminar@gmail.com with your school, grade, and science teacher´s name. I will then send you information on becoming part of the staff. Teachers and MSS speakers are also welcome to join. Student posts can be anonymous or made under a pseudonym, but I need to confirm that you are a real person. 🙂

If you would like to be a casual poster to the blog, email me at marinscienceseminar@gmail.com with your full name, whether you are a student or adult and your association with the MSS. Anyone can post comments to MSS posts.

We are putting together an exciting second season of the Marin Science Seminar for 2008-2009. Check out the calendar and feel free to post relevant ideas, comments, links, videos, etc.
