“Are you ready for National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM)? Held every October, NDEAM is an opportune time to educate about disability employment issues and celebrate the many and varied contributions of America’s workers with disabilities. The 2017 NDEAM theme is “Inclusion Drives Innovation.”
“The slug known as Dusky Arion (Arion subfuscus) coats itself with mucus to keep moist. It can add certain proteins to its mucus to make a glue. With this glue, the slug can attach so strongly to a surface that it can’t be carried off by a predator.
Inspired by the Dusky Arion, a research team led by Dr. David J. Mooney at Harvard University created a family of medical glues that could be sticky, strong, stretchy, and nontoxic. The study was supported in part by NIH’s National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR). Results were published on July 28, 2017, in Science.”
