  • Dvir, Tal; Timko, Brian P.; Brigham, Mark D.; Naik, Shreesh R.; Karajanagi, Sandeep S.; Levy, Oren; Jin, Hongwei; Parker, Kevin K.; Langer, Robert; Kohane, Daniel S. (Nature Publishing Group, 2011-09)
    Engineered cardiac patches for treating damaged heart tissues after a heart attack are normally produced by seeding heart cells within three-dimensional porous biomaterial scaffolds1, 2, 3. These biomaterials, which are ...
  • Shalek, Alex K.; Gaublomme, Jellert T.; Wang, Lili; Yosef, Nir; Chevrier, Nicolas; Andersen, Mette S.; Robinson, Jacob T.; Pochet, Nathalie; Neuberg, Donna; Gertner, Rona S.; Amit, Ido; Brown, Jennifer R.; Hacohen, Nir; Regev, Aviv; Wu, Catherine J.; Park, Hongkun (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2012-11)
    A circuit level understanding of immune cells and hematological cancers has been severely impeded by a lack of techniques that enable intracellular perturbation without significantly altering cell viability and function. ...
  • Maier, Pauline (Omohundro Institute of Early American History and Culture, 2012-04)
    I am grateful to the participants in this forum for their careful and enthusiastic responses to Ratification: The People Debate the Constitution, 1787-1788. Some comments usefully extend the discussion beyond what’s in the ...
  • Walker, Brian J.; Nair, Gautham P.; Marshall, Lisa F.; Bawendi, Moungi G.; Bulovic, Vladimir (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2009-06)
    We report narrow-band absorption enhancement of semiconductor nanocrystals via Förster resonance energy transfer from cyanine J-aggregates. These J-aggregated dyes associate electrostatically with short quantum-dot (QD) ...
  • Maldovan, Martin (American Physical Society, 2013-01)
    By transforming heat flux from particle to wave phonon transport, we introduce a new class of engineered material to control thermal conduction. We show that rationally designed nanostructured alloys can lead to a fundamental ...
  • O'Neill, Peggy; Entekhabi, Dara; Njoku, Eni; Kellogg, Kent (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-07)
    The Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) mission is one of the first Earth observation satellites being developed by NASA in response to the National Research Council's Decadal Survey. Its mission design consists of L-band ...
  • Brown, Molly E.; Escobar, Vanessa; Moran, Susan; Entekhabi, Dara; O'Neill, Peggy E.; Njoku, Eni G.; Doorn, Brad; Entin, Jared K. (American Meteorological Society, 2013-08)
    Water in the soil—both its amount (soil moisture) and its state (freeze/thaw)—plays a key role in water and energy cycles, in weather and climate, and in the carbon cycle. Additionally, soil moisture touches upon human ...
  • Azoulay, Pierre; Repenning, Nelson; Zuckerman Sivan, Ezra W. (Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management, Cornell University, 2010-09)
    Since the early 1990s, U.S. pharmaceutical firms have partially outsourced the coordination of the clinical trials they sponsor to specialized firms called contract research organizations. Although these exchanges ...
  • Fonslow, Bryan R.; Kang, Seong A.; Gestaut, Daniel R.; Graczyk, Beth; Davis, Trisha N.; Sabatini, David M.; Yates III, John R. (American Chemical Society, 2010-07)
    Here we report the use of capillary isoelectric focusing under native conditions for the separation of protein complex isoforms and subcomplexes. Using biologically relevant HIS-tag and FLAG-tag purified protein complexes, ...
  • Aronov, Dmitriy; Fee, Michale S. (Public Library of Science, 2012-10)
    The song of a male zebra finch is a stereotyped motor sequence whose tempo varies with social context – whether or not the song is directed at a female bird – as well as with the time of day. The neural mechanisms underlying ...
  • Kim, Wonjung; Bush, John W. M. (Cambridge University Press, 2012-04)
    We examine the fluid mechanics of drinking in nature. We classify the drinking strategies of a broad range of creatures according to the principal forces involved, and present physical pictures for each style. Simple scaling ...
  • Pignatta, Daniela; Erdmann, Robert Michael; Scheer, Elias; Picard, Colette Lafontaine; Bell, George W.; Gehring, Mary; Pignata, Daniela (eLife Sciences Publications, Ltd., 2014-07)
    Imprinted gene expression occurs during seed development in plants and is associated with differential DNA methylation of parental alleles, particularly at proximal transposable elements (TEs). Imprinting variability could ...
  • Koskinas, Konstantinos C.; Feldman, Charles L.; Chatzizisis, Yiannis S.; Coskun, Ahmet U.; Jonas, Michael; Jonas, Michael; Baker, Aaron B.; Papafaklis, Michail I.; Edelman, Elazer R.; Stone, Peter H. (American Heart Association, 2010-05)
    Background— The natural history of heterogeneous atherosclerotic plaques and the role of local hemodynamic factors throughout their development are unknown. We performed a serial study to assess the role of endothelial ...
  • Belik, Vitaly; Geisel, Theo; Brockmann, Dirk (American Physical Society, 2011-08)
    We investigate a model for spatial epidemics explicitly taking into account bidirectional movements between base and destination locations on individual mobility networks. We provide a systematic analysis of generic dynamical ...
  • Huang, Albert S.; Tellex, Stefanie A.; Bachrach, Abraham Galton; Kollar, Thomas Fleming; Roy, Deb K.; Roy, Nicholas (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-12)
    Natural language is a flexible and intuitive modality for conveying directions and commands to a robot but presents a number of computational challenges. Diverse words and phrases must be mapped into structures that the ...
  • Huynh, D. B. P.; Knezevic, David; Chen, Y.; Hesthaven, J. S.; Patera, Anthony T. (Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2010-06)
    We present a new approach for the construction of lower bounds for the inf-sup stability constants required in a posteriori error analysis of reduced basis approximations to affinely parametrized partial differential ...
  • Lawler, Gregory F.; Sheffield, Scott; Sheffield, Scott Roger (Institute of Mathematical Statistics, 2011-09)
    The Schramm–Loewner evolution (SLE[subscript κ]) is a candidate for the scaling limit of random curves arising in two-dimensional critical phenomena. When κ < 8, an instance of SLE[subscript κ] is a random planar curve ...
  • Chang, Howard C.; Paek, Jennifer; Kim, Dennis H. (Nature Publishing Group, 2011-12)
    Heritable variation in behavioural traits generally has a complex genetic basis1, and thus naturally occurring polymorphisms that influence behaviour have been defined in only rare instances2,3. The isolation of wild ...
  • Giesa, Tristan; Pugno, Nicola M.; Buehler, Markus J. (American Physical Society, 2012-10)
    Many fibers in biomaterials such as tendon, elastin, or silk feature a nonlinear stiffening behavior of the stress-strain relationship, where the rigidity of the material increases severely as the material is being stretched. ...
  • Helmreich, Stefan (John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2011-03)
    This essay considers seawater as a substance and symbol in anthropological and social theory. Seawater has occupied an ambiguous place with respect to anthropological categories of nature and culture. Seawater as nature ...
