Centers & Programs
The mission of the center is to develop cutting-edge methodologies and approaches for emerging metabolomic and system biochemical research. This area of research has the promise of revolutionizing biological research in the21st century for the ability to resolve biological complexity. Thus, metabolomic development will find applications in a broad array of pressing societal problems ranging from human health, biotechnology, to environmental pollution and ecosystem health.
This program is a collaborative effort between the University of Louisville (UofL) and the Jefferson County Public Schools (JCPS) that partners mathematics and science faculty, graduate, and undergraduate students from the College of Arts and Sciences, mathematics and science educators from the College of Education and Human Development (CEHD), mathematics and science specialists from JCPS, and teachers from six Title I elementary schools. In each school there will be a six-member GEMS team composed of two science teachers, two mathematics teachers, a science Fellow, and a mathematics Fellow. As the teams implement inquiry-based instruction each will be supported by two UofL content faculty members and two pedagogy mentors from CEHD and/or JCPS specialists.
