Our own agendas : autobiographical essays by women associated with McGill University by Margaret Gillett( )

9 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in English and held by 1,356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Our Own Agendas is the second collection of essays by McGill women. The first, A Fair Shake, was published a decade ago. The second volume both reflects the current climate of openness and shows that many barriers remain to be challenged. Our Own Agendas makes a lively and enlightening contribution to our understanding of women's experiences and to Canadian social history

We walked very warily : a history of women at McGill by Margaret Gillett( Book )

6 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nineteenth-century assumptions about the nature of women, her educability, her role in society, and debates about coeducation are examined in this record of the efforts of the first women students to gain entrance in McGill University in Canada. The introduction offers historical background, ideas of women, and the opening of higher education to women. Part I, "Admission," examines: Principal J.W. Dawson's ideas on women's education; opportunities for education for women in Montreal before 1884; the first women at McGill, 1884 and the reaction of male students; and the coeducation controversy. Part ii, "Royal Victoria College and Student Life," offers sketches of Lord Stratcona and the nine Wardens of McGill's women's college, 1899-1980, and discusses various aspects of student life such as student organizations and notable teachers. Part iii, "Professional Faculties," discusses prejudices towards women, professional education, women's entry into "male" faculties such as medicine and law, and the women's problem of credibility for "female" faculties such as education, food services, and nursing. The final section examines the women's movement on campus and offers conclusions that relate to the general issues in higher education for women in Canada. It is suggested that there be a transitional period of "catching up" by the academic world for identifiable courses in women's studies and a renewed effort to secure equality for women after graduation upon entering the job market. Appendices include: some "firsts" for McGill; chancellors and principals of McGill; honorary degrees and other honors; notes on non-academic women; notes on some notables; and a graph of the total/female enrollment, 1880-1980. Footnotes, a selected bibliography, and many photographs are also provided. (Lc)

The University of Kuwait : an historical-comparative study of purposes in a new university in a developing nation by Marguerite Louise Cornell( )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The role of the University has been determined by the evolution of the purposes of universities in the West and the Arab Muslim Middle East, by the development of Kuwait, and by the growth of modern formal education there. The University's establishment and its development during the first eleven years are documented and analysed in the light of these influences."--
The effect of in vitro culture on the stability, expansion and neuronal differentiation of human pluripotent cell lines by Margaret Gillett( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pluripotent cells are defined by their ability to both self-renew and to differentiation into any cell type within the human body. As such, pluripotent cell lines are of great interest as starting material for drug screening and cell therapies for regenerative treatment of diseased tissues. Pluripotent cell lines were originally derived from germ cell tumors (embryonal carcinoma cells; EC), but have since been isolated and expanded from the inner cell mass of an early embryo (human embryonic stem cells; hESCs). This project set out to investigate the relative ability of the pluripotent NTERA2 (EC) cell line and hESC lines: Shef3, HUES7 and RH5, to differentiate into neurons, using mechanical and enzymatic culture methods. Focus was placed on monitoring differentiation efficiency and function between the different lines. The tumour origin, in addition to the poor reproducibility, low yield and reduced functionality of NTERA2 derived neurons, compared to primary neurons, makes their incorporation into regenerative therapies unlikely. As such, an enhanced neuronal differentiation protocol was developed for use in hESCs. Cell populations were monitored for relative changes in gene and protein expression at selected time points throughout differentiation using standard RT-PCR, Q-PCR and immuno fluorescence analysis. End stage neurons were screened for functionality using patch clamping and calcium imaging techniques. Monitoring of cellular behavior through differentiation was aided by the concurrent development of a portable microscope incubator stage in collaboration with Linkam scientific Ltd. These data demonstrate a variation in the ability to generate neurons from pluripotent cell lines, and suggests a predetermined, preferential cell fate within each line, even at the level of pluripotency. This study also characterises in detail neuronal differentiation from pluripotent cells, adding to the understanding which is essential for translation into therapies for neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, and Huntingdon's disease
