  • Unhavaithaya, Yingdee; Orr-Weaver, Terry L. (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2013-12)
    Meiotic chromosome segregation involves pairing and segregation of homologous chromosomes in the first division and segregation of sister chromatids in the second division. Although it is known that the centromere and ...
  • Calderon de Anda, Froylan; Meletis, Konstantinos; Ge, Xuecai; Rei, Damien; Tsai, Li-Huei (Society for Neuroscience, 2010-08)
    The mechanisms underlying the normal development of neuronal morphology remain a fundamental question in neurobiology. Studies in cultured neurons have suggested that the position of the centrosome and the Golgi may predict ...
  • Frydman, Carola; Jenter, Dirk (Annual Review, 2010-12)
    This paper surveys the recent literature on CEO compensation. The rapid rise in CEO pay over the past 30 years has sparked an intense debate about the nature of the pay-setting process. Many view the high level of CEO ...
  • Knezevic, David; Patera, Anthony T. (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM), 2010-03)
    In this paper we present a reduced basis method for the parametrized Fokker–Planck equation associated with evolution of finitely extensible nonlinear elastic (FENE) dumbbells in a Newtonian solvent for a (prescribed) ...
  • Patera, A.T.; Huynh, Dinh Bao Phuong; Knezevic, David; Patera, Anthony T. (Elsevier, 2011-09)
    We introduce a frequentistic validation framework for assessment — acceptance or rejection — of the consistency of a proposed parametrized partial differential equation model with respect to (noisy) experimental data from ...
  • Critchfield, Agatha S.; Yao, Grace; Jaishankar, Aditya; Lieleg, Oliver; Doyle, Patrick S.; House, Michael; Ribbeck, Katharina; Friedlander, Ronn Samuel; McKinley, Gareth H. (Public Library of Science, 2013-08)
    Background: Ascending infection from the colonized vagina to the normally sterile intrauterine cavity is a well-documented cause of preterm birth. The primary physical barrier to microbial ascension is the cervical canal, ...
  • Krauss, Miriam; Roussanova, Anna; Vaz, Amali (IOP Publishing, 2009-07)
    We present multiband photometry of 185 type-Ia supernovae (SNe Ia), with over 11,500 observations. These were acquired between 2001 and 2008 at the F. L. Whipple Observatory of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics ...
  • Wood-Vasey, W. M.; Marion, G. Howie; Challis, Peter; Mandel, Kaisey S.; Bloom, Joshua S.; Modjaz, Maryam; Narayan, Gautham; Hicken, Malcolm; Foley, Ryan J.; Klein, Christopher R.; Starr, Dan L.; Morgan, Adam N.; Rest, Armin; Blake, Cullen H.; Miller, Adam A.; Falco, Emilio E.; Wyatt, William F.; Mink, Jessica; Skrutskie, Michael F.; Kirshner, Robert P.; Friedman, Andrew Samuel (2015-09)
    CfAIR2 is a large, homogeneously reduced set of near-infrared (NIR) light curves (LCs) for Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) obtained with the 1.3 m Peters Automated InfraRed Imaging TELescope. This data set includes 4637 ...
  • Johnson, Micah K.; Dale, Kevin; Avidan, Shai; Pfister, Hanspeter; Freeman, William T.; Matusik, Wojciech (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2011-09)
    Computer-generated (CG) images have achieved high levels of realism. This realism, however, comes at the cost of long and expensive manual modeling, and often humans can still distinguish between CG and real images. We ...
  • Smith, Beverly J.; Swartz, Douglas A.; Miller, Olivia; Burleson, Jacob A.; Nowak, Michael A.; Struck, Curtis (Institute of Physics/American Astronomical Society, 2012-06)
    We have conducted a statistical analysis of the ultra-luminous X-ray point sources (ULXs; LX ≥ 10[superscript 39] erg s–1) in a sample of galaxies selected from the Arp Atlas of Peculiar Galaxies. We find a possible ...
  • Bonillo Fernandez, Baltasar; Swager, Timothy Manning (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2012-11)
    Lewis acids promote the polymerization of several 2-chloroalkylenedioxythiophenes, providing high-molecular-weight conjugated polymers. The proposed mechanism is a cationic chain-growth polymerization, as confirmed by ...
  • Mistree, Behram F. T.; Paradiso, Joseph A. (Association for Computing Machinery, 2010-01)
    The ChainMail system is a scalable electronic sensate skin that is designed as a dense sensor network. ChainMail is built from small (1"x1") rigid circuit boards attached to their neighbors with flexible interconnects that ...
  • Fujimoto, James G.; Jasanoff, Alan Pradip; So, Peter T. C. (Elsevier, 2013-10)
    The Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative has focused scientific attention on the necessary tools to understand the human brain and mind. Here, we outline our collective vision ...
  • Poterba, James M. (Economic and Social Studies Institute, 2010-01)
    Roy Geary spent his career using applied economic analysis to tackle important questions in public policy. I am deeply honoured to join the list of previous Geary lecturers who have celebrated the memory of such an important ...
  • Palacios, Tomas (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-07)
    This talk describes some successful Industry/University collaboration models currently being used at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
  • Lelyveld, Victor S.; Jasanoff, Alan Pradip; Atanasijevic, Tatjana (John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2010-02)
    Magnetic resonance (MRI)-based molecular imaging methods are beginning to have impact in neuroscience. A growing number of molecular imaging agents have been synthesized and tested in vitro, but so far relatively few have ...
  • Chevrier, Vincent L.; Ceder, Gerbrand (Electrochemical Society, 2011-07)
    Na-ion batteries have been proposed as candidates for replacing Li-ion batteries. In this paper we examine the viability of Na-ion negative electrode materials based on Na alloys or hard carbons in terms of volumetric ...
  • Knittel, Christopher Roland; Metaxoglou, Konstantinos (American Economic Association, 2011-05)
    In this paper, we share our experience with merger simulations using a Random Coefficient Logit model on the demand side and assuming a static Bertrand game on the supply side. Drawing largely from our work in Knittel and ...
  • McCammon, Jasmine M.; Sive, Hazel L. (Company of Biologists, 2015-06)
    The treatment of psychiatric disorders presents three major challenges to the research and clinical community: defining a genotype associated with a disorder, characterizing the molecular pathology of each disorder and ...
  • Tsukamoto, Kosuke; Kocher, Olivier; Krieger, Monty; Buck, Lorenna Dianne; Griffith, Linda G.; Inman, Samuel Walker (Public Library of Science, 2013-07)
    Background: PDZK1 is a four PDZ-domain containing cytoplasmic protein that binds to a variety of membrane proteins via their C-termini and can influence the abundance, localization and/or function of its target proteins. ...
