Logic and intuition
In this paper I have shown how logic as an innate aspect of human cognition allows us as to obtain truths regarding reality. I have come to this conclusion via my study of human cognitive development, logic and by observing ...
Stochastic modeling of tissue engineering scaffolds with heterogeneous porosity levels
In this thesis, the internal architecture of the scaffolds is optimized based on a given distribution and porosity level function. The discrete porosity levels are used to determine required expected number of pores for ...
System-level modeling and analysis of biological reaction networks in signal transduction and glycosylation
Novel high-throughput genomic and proteomic tools are allowing the integration of information from a range of biological assays into a single conceptual framework. This framework is often described as a network of biochemical ...
The effect of operational parameters on the fate of tetracycline resistant bacteria in biological wastewater treatment plants
The main focus of this research is to study the fate of antibiotic resistant organisms in biological treatment processes as a function of operation and antibiotic presence. Data generated as a part of this study are expected ...
Blood flow measurement from digital angiography
Computational fluid dynamic (CFD) simulations are emerging as a promising tool for diagnosis and treatment planning of vascular diseases such as intracranial aneurysms. In addition to the three-dimensional luminal geometry, ...
Robust microbial fabrication of plant pharmaceuticals: Complexities and solutions
Abstract not available.
Development and evaluation of a new high-sensitivity, region-of-interest, x-ray imaging system for neuro-interventional applications
Neurovascular image-guided interventional (IGI) procedures require very high resolution (3 to 10 lp/mm), large dynamic range, and real-time imaging capability for visualization and navigation of endovascular devices during ...
Effect of fat on inflammation and insulin resistance in human mononuclear cells and myeloid cell insulin receptor knockout mice
Obesity and diabetes are major risk factors for cardiovascular disease. Both have been shown to be associated with oxidative stress and inflammation. These processes are also involved in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. ...
A constrained object approach to systems biology
Research has shown that all the information needed to build a detailed model of a cell, including the properties of all constituent components and their interconnectivity, is still not available. However, cells are subject ...
Functional module identification and function prediction from protein interaction networks
Since the completion of sequencing human genome, uncovering the principles of interactions and the functional roles of proteins has been in the spotlight in this post-genomic era. The interactions between proteins provide ...
