Forward dynamics of the lower limb based on constrained multibody dynamics
In this thesis the forward dynamics of the lower limb is modeled as a constrained multibody dynamics problem. The equations of motion are developed using the Euler-Lagrange method. The constraints involved in the system ...
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, ...
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 ...
Robust microbial fabrication of plant pharmaceuticals: Complexities and solutions
Abstract not available.
Characterization of Acinetobacter baumannii biofilm associated components
Acinetobacter baumannii is a Gram-negative aerobic coccobaccillus that is a major cause of nosocomial infections worldwide. Infected individuals may develop pneumonia, urinary tract, wound, and other infections that are ...
Vacuum-assisted self-powered microfluidic pumping for lab-on-chip (LOC) application
A simple method to enhance self-powered microfluidic devices is proposed. Powered by pre-evacuation of high-gas soluble PDMS, the microfluidic devices do not require external pressure sources during pumping process . ...
Improved Design and Fabrication of Light Toxicity Chamber used for Light Induced Retinal Degeneration in Mice
Researchers have been trying to understand how the human eye works, what causes diseases of the eye resulting in blindness and what treatments can be found to treat human eye diseases. Animals with eyes that are in some ...
Using genetic and molecular techniques to study anthocyanin production and protein expression in recombinant Escherichia coli
This dissertation involves the construction of the anthocyanin biosynthetic pathway into prokaryotic Escherichia Coli by combining genetic and molecular techniques. E.Coli has been frequently used as an expression system ...
Genomic study of human glial progenitor development
The broad aim of this research project was to understand molecular signals which underlie the development of human oligodendrocytes. Oligodendrocytes, which are responsible for producing myelin in the brain, are lost in ...
Metabolic engineering for high-level flavonoids and stilbenes production in microorganisms
This dissertation represented an effort in efficient biosynthesis of both natural and unnatural stilbenes and flavonoids in microbial platform utilizing state of the art metabolic engineering strategies. Flavonoids are ...
