  • Sanchez, William R.; Sodini, Charles G.; Dawson, Joel L. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-09)
    We present the first known energy management IC to allow low-power systems, such as biomedical implants, to optimally use ultracapacitors instead of batteries as their chief energy storage elements. The IC, fabricated in ...
  • Roy, Arjun; Rumble, Stephen M.; Stutsman, Ryan; Levis, Philip; Mazieres, David; Zeldovich, Nickolai (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2011-04)
    We argue that controlling energy allocation is an increasingly useful and important feature for operating systems, especially on mobile devices. We present two new low-level abstractions in the Cinder operating system, ...

  • Gutowski, Timothy G.; Gershwin, Stanley B.; Bounassisi, Tonio (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-07)
    During periods of growth, the energy payback performance of new energy generating technologies deviates substantially from the usual static measures of energy return on investment (EROI), and time to breakeven (tB) for ...
  • Ioakimidis, Christos; Koukouzas, Nikolaos; Chatzimichali, Anna; Casimiro, Sergio; Macarulla, Ana (Elsevier, 2012-01)
    The energy balance of Greece is strongly dependent on imported oil. The rather late introduction of natural gas has increased the diversity of the energy mix while the share of renewable sources in primary energy supply ...
  • Leitermann, Olivia; Kirtley, James L., Jr. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-11)
    Certain energy storage technologies are well-suited to the high-frequency, high-cycling operation which is required in provision of load frequency control (LFC). To limit the total stored energy capacity required while ...
  • Pardal, Miguel L.; Harrison, Mark; Marques, Jose Alves; Sarma, Sanjay Emani (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2012-11)
    Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology allows automatic data capture from tagged objects moving in a supply chain. This data can be very useful if it is used to answer traceability queries, however it is distributed ...
  • Jay, Steven M.; Kurtagic, Elma; Alvarez, Luis M.; De Picciotto, Seymour; Sanchez Palacios, Edgar I.; Hawkins, Jessica F.; Prince, Robin N.; Guerrero, Yadir; Treasure, Carolyn L.; Lee, Richard T.; Griffith, Linda G. (American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB), 2011-05)
    The ErbB receptor family is dysregulated in many cancers, and its therapeutic manipulation by targeted antibodies and kinase inhibitors has resulted in effective chemotherapies. However, many malignancies remain refractory ...
  • Jay, Steven M.; Murthy, Ashwin C.; Hawkins, Jessica F.; Wortzel, Joshua R.; Steinhauser, Matthew L.; Alvarez, Luis M.; Gannon, Joseph; Macrae, Calum A.; Griffith, Linda G.; Lee, Richard T. (American Heart Association, 2013-06)
    Background—Doxorubicin (DOXO) is an effective anthracycline chemotherapeutic, but its use is limited by cumulative dose-dependent cardiotoxicity. Neuregulin-1β is an ErbB receptor family ligand that is effective against ...
  • Hosseini, Vahid; Ahadian, Samad; Ostrovidov, Serge; Camci-Unal, Gulden; Chen, Song; Kaji, Hirokazu; Ramalingam, Murugan; Khademhosseini, Ali (Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., 2012-09)
    To engineer tissue-like structures, cells must organize themselves into three-dimensional (3D) networks that mimic the native tissue microarchitecture. Microfabricated hydrogel substrates provide a potentially useful ...
  • Brigham, Christopher J.; Sinskey, Anthony J.; Song, Yuyang; Matsumoto, Ken’ichiro; Yamada, Miwa; Gohda, Aoi; Taguchi, Seiichi (Springer-Verlag, 2011-11)
    The first biosynthetic system for lactate (LA)-based polyesters was previously created in recombinant Escherichia coli (Taguchi et al. 2008). Here, we have begun efforts to upgrade the prototype polymer production system ...
  • Mata-Fink, Jordi; Hanson, M.; Kriegsman, Barry A.; Irvine, D.; Wittrup, Karl Dane (Biomed Central Ltd., 2012-09)
    Background: One of the great challenges for an HIV vaccine is to elicit broadly neutralizing antibodies specific for conserved epitopes from which the virus cannot easily escape. The CD4 binding site is one such epitope ...
  • Varanasi, Kripa K.; Chamarthy, Pramod; Chauhan, Shakti; de Bock, Peter; Deng, Tao; Kulkarni, Ambarish; Mandrusiak, Gary; Rush, Brian; Russ, Boris; Denault, Lauraine; Weaver, Stanton; Gerner, Frank; Leland, Quinn; Yerkes, Kirk (Nano Science and Technology Institute, 2009-05)
    In the DARPA Thermal Ground Plane (TGP) program[1],we are developing a new thermal technology that will enable a monumental thermal technological leap to an entirely new class of electronics, particularly electronics ...
  • Barbero, Roberto Juan; Carnelli, Lino; Simon, Anna; Kao, Albert; Monforte, Alessandra d'Arminio; Riccò, Moreno; Bianchi, Daniele; Belcher, Angela M. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2013)
    In this work, a biologically catalysed CO2 mineralization process for the capture of CO2 from point sources was designed, constructed at a laboratory scale, and, using standard chemical process scale-up protocols, was ...
  • Nielsen, David R.; Yoon, Sang-Hwal; Yuan, Clara J.; Prather, Kristala L. Jones (John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2010-01)
    The functional reconstruction of acetoin and meso-2,3-butanediol (meso-2,3-BD) biosynthetic pathways in Escherichia coli have been explored systematically. Pathway construction involved the in vivo screening of prospective ...
  • Belmont, Brian Joshua; Niles, Jacquin (American Chemical Society, 2010-06)
    The importance and pervasiveness of naturally occurring regulation of RNA function in biology is increasingly being recognized. A common mechanism uses inducible protein−RNA interactions to shape diverse aspects of cellular ...
  • Nielsen, David R.; Leonard, Effendi; Yoon, Sang-Hwal; Tseng, Hsien-chung; Yuan, Clara J.; Prather, Kristala L. Jones (Elsevier B.V., 2009-05)
    Alternative microbial hosts have been engineered as biocatalysts for butanol biosynthesis. The butanol synthetic pathway of Clostridium acetobutylicum was first re-constructed in Escherichia coli to establish a baseline ...
  • Potter, Andrew Cole; Lee, Patrick A. (American Physical Society, 2011-05)
    We compare topological insulator materials and Rashba-coupled surfaces as candidates for engineering p+ip superconductivity. Specifically, in each type of material we examine (1) the limitations to inducing superconductivity ...
