Computational fluid dynamic studies of endovascular stents for treating cerebral aneurysms
Endovascular stents provide a potentially viable treatment paradigm for cerebral aneurysms by modifying their hemodynamics. To understand how different endovascular stent designs and number of stents used can differentially ...
Use of fibrin hydrogels for localized and cell-controlled lentiviral gene delivery
Recombinant lentiviruses are efficient gene delivery vehicles with the ability to infect non-dividing cells including neurons, hematopoietic and embryonic stem cells. In addition to high efficiency several applications may ...
Biophysical effects of dimyristoylphosphatidylserine on electroporation-induced skin transport regions
DMPS is known to enhance the transdermal transport of small polar solutes by electroporation significantly. Understanding the modus operandi of this enhancement is essential for the further improvement and development of ...
Remote sensing and hydrological modeling of burn scars
This study examined the potential usefulness of combining remote sensing data with hydrologic models and mapping tools available from Geographic Information Systems (GIS), to evaluate the effects of wildfire. Four subprojects ...
High yield anthocyanin biosynthesis in metabolic engineering Escherichia coli
Anthcoyanins, the largest sub-group of flavonoids and a major group of plant pigments, impart the eye-catching hues to most flowers and fruits ranging from pink through red and purple to dark blue. They are widely distributed ...
A web-based modeling approach for tracking algal blooms in lower Great Lakes
The occurrence of algal blooms in the Great Lakes has been a growing concern over the past few decades, especially for toxic or harmful algal blooms (HABs). For the present work a general circulation model is used to help ...
Structure-property relationships in associating polymer solutions
Abstract not available.
Restoring the function of Aged Mesenchymal Stem Cells for Vascular Tissue Engineering
Bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (BM-MSCs) have high potential as an autologous cell source of vascular progenitors but normal cell function and turnover frequency may decline with age. In this study we set out ...
Understanding alternate physical interaction strategies to improve product design for older adults
All individuals adopt some form of physical and cognitive coping. Coping behaviors are most frequently observed for individuals with limited ability and for challenging tasks. To reduce the stigma associated with the term ...
Affinity and kinetics of selectin mediated leukocyte adhesion
Cell adhesion molecules belonging to the selectin family have been shown to facilitate leukocyte trafficking to sites of inflammation and injury. Selectins have been shown to play an important role during the normal immune ...
