  • Abaluck, Jason; Gruber, Jonathan (American Economic Association, 2011-06)
    We evaluate the choices of elders across their insurance options under the Medicare Part D Prescription Drug plan, using a unique dataset of prescription drug claims matched to information on the characteristics of choice ...
  • Bertuccelli, Luca F.; Pellegrino, Nicholas A.; Cummings, M. L. (American Automatic Control Council, 2010-06)
    This paper addresses human decision-making in supervisory control of a team of unmanned vehicles performing search missions. Previous work has proposed the use of a two-alternative choice framework, in which operators ...
  • Olvera-Gomez, Irlanda; Hamilton, Sara E.; Xiao, Zhengguo; Guimaraes, Carla P.; Ploegh, Hidde; Hogquist, Kristin A.; Wang, Liangchun; Jameson, Stephen C. (National Academy of Sciences, 2012-01)
    The ability to induce humoral and cellular immunity via antigen delivery through the unbroken skin (epicutaneous immunization, EPI) has immediate relevance for vaccine development. However, it is unclear which adjuvants ...
  • Sengupta, Poulomi; Basu, Sudipta; Soni, Shivani; Pandey, Ambarish; Roy, Bhaskar; Oh, Michael S.; Chin, Kenneth T.; Paraskar, Abhimanyu S.; Sarangi, Sasmit; Connor, Yamicia D.; Sabbisetti, Venkata; Kopparam, Jawahar; Kulkarni, Ashish; Muto, Katherine; Amarasiriwardena, Chitra; Jayawardene, Innocent; Lupoli, Nicola; Dinulescu, Daniela M.; Bonventre, Joseph V.; Mashelkar, Raghunath Anant; Sengupta, Shiladitya (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2012-07)
    Nanoscale drug delivery vehicles have been harnessed extensively as carriers for cancer chemotherapeutics. However, traditional pharmaceutical approaches for nanoformulation have been a challenge with molecules that exhibit ...
  • Chubykin, Alexander A.; Roach, Emma B.; Shuler, Marshall G. Hussain; Bear, Mark; Chubykin, Alexander A. (Elsevier, 2013-02)
    Neurons in rodent primary visual cortex (V1) relate operantly conditioned stimulus-reward intervals with modulated patterns of spiking output, but little is known about the locus or mechanism of this plasticity. Here we ...
  • Bloem, Bernard; Poorthuis, Rogier B.; Mansvelder, Huibert D. (Frontiers Research Foundation, 2014-03)
    Acetylcholine (ACh) release in the medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC) is crucial for normal cognitive performance. Despite the fact that many have studied how ACh affects neuronal processing in the mPFC and thereby influences ...
  • Abrahamsson, Christoffer K.; Yang, Fan; Park, Hyoungshin; Brunger, Jonathan M.; Valonen, Piia K.; Langer, Robert; Welter, Jean F.; Caplan, Arnold I.; Guilak, Farshid; Freed, Lisa E. (Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., 2010-07)
    Human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) and three-dimensional (3D) woven poly(ɛ-caprolactone) (PCL) scaffolds are promising tools for skeletal tissue engineering. We hypothesized that in vitro culture duration and medium ...
  • Shu, K.; Thatte, H.; Spector, Myron (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-05)
    Mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) contraction associated with chondrogenesis is attributed to the expression of alpha-smooth muscle actin (alpha-SMA). In this study, pluripotent embryonic carcinoma cells (ECCs) and MSCs were ...
  • Imbens, Guido W.; Donald, Stephen G.; Newey, Whitney K. ()
    Properties of GMM estimators are sensitive to the choice of instruments. Using many instruments leads to high asymptotic asymptotic efficiency but can cause high bias and/or variance in small samples. In this paper we ...
  • Luo, Linjie; Baran, Ilya; Rusinkiewicz, Szymon; Matusik, Wojciech (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2012-11)
    3D printing technology is rapidly maturing and becoming ubiquitous. One of the remaining obstacles to wide-scale adoption is that the object to be printed must fit into the working volume of the 3D printer. We propose a ...
  • Zinser, Erik R.; Lindell, Debbie; Johnson, Zackary I.; Futschik, Matthias; Steglich, Claudia; Coleman, Maureen L.; Wright, Matthew A.; Rector, Trent; Steen, Robert; McNulty, Nathan; Thompson, Luke Richard; Chisholm, Sallie (Penny) (Public Library of Science, 2009-04)
    The marine cyanobacterium Prochlorococcus MED4 has the smallest genome and cell size of all known photosynthetic organisms. Like all phototrophs at temperate latitudes, it experiences predictable daily variation in available ...
  • Deng, Shuo; Balakrishnan, Hari; LaCurts, Katrina Leigh; Goyal, Ameesh K. (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2013-10)
    Cloud computing infrastructures are increasingly being used by network-intensive applications that transfer significant amounts of data between the nodes on which they run. This paper shows that tenants can do a better job ...
  • Jayaraman, Vijaysekhar; Cable, Alex E.; Duker, Jay S.; Huber, Robert; Fujimoto, James G.; Choi, Woo Jhon; Mohler, Kathrin Juliane; Potsaid, Benjamin M.; Lu, Chen David; Liu, Jonathan Jaoshin (Public Library of Science, 2013-12)
    We demonstrate in vivo choriocapillaris and choroidal microvasculature imaging in normal human subjects using optical coherence tomography (OCT). An ultrahigh speed swept source OCT prototype at 1060 nm wavelengths with a ...
  • Esmaeelpour, Marieh; Kajic, Vedran; Zabihian, Behrooz; Othara, Richu; Ansari-Shahrezaei, Siamak; Kellner, Lukas; Krebs, Ilse; Nemetz, Susanne; Kraus, Martin Franz Georg; Hornegger, Joachim; Fujimoto, James G.; Drexler, Wolfgang; Binder, Susanne (Public Library of Science, 2014-06)
    Objectives: To examine the feasibility of automatically segmented choroidal vessels in three-dimensional (3D) 1060-nmOCT by testing repeatability in healthy and AMD eyes and by mapping Haller's and Sattler's layer thickness ...
  • Regatieri, Caio V.; Branchini, Lauren; Fujimoto, James G.; Duker, Jay S. (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2012-05)
    Background: A structurally and functionally normal choroidal vasculature is essential for retinal function. Therefore, a precise clinical understanding of choroidal morphology should be important for understanding many ...
  • Manjunath, Varsha; Taha, Mohammad; Fujimoto, James G.; Duker, Jay S. (Elsevier, 2010-09)
    Purpose: To examine choroidal thickness and area in healthy eyes using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). Design: Retrospective, observational case series. Methods: Thirty-four eyes (34 ...

  • Bernardara, M.; Trigo Neri Tabuada, Goncalo Jorge (Turpion, 2016-07)
    Conjectures of Beilinson-Bloch type predict that the low-degree rational Chow groups of intersections of quadrics are one-dimensional. This conjecture was proved by Otwinowska in [20]. By making use of homological projective ...
  • Fox, Jacob; Lee, Choongbum; Sudakov, Benny (Springer-Verlag, )
    For a graph G, let (G) denote its chromatic number and (G) denote the order of the largest clique subdivision in G. Let H(n) be the maximum of (G)= (G) over all n-vertex graphs G. A famous conjecture of Haj os from ...
