University of Kentucky ($1,900,000 • 1995-1998). The grant provided 4-year support for immunotherapy and gene therapy programs at the Lucille P. Markey Cancer Center. Specific goals included (1) building expertise on the role of T-cells in the idiotypic network as a basis for critical investigation of anti-idiotype vaccines and (2) advancing gene cancer therapy by increasing tumor specificity in gene delivery through new techniques in the selective targeting of tumor cells. Funds provided faculty salary and start-up costs. Kenneth Foon was the PI.

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.
The NGSS offer a detailed description of the key scientific ideas and practices that all students should learn by the time they graduate from high school. The standards are based largely on the 2011 National Research Council report A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas.
