• (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2011-07)
The DMTPC directional dark matter detection experiment is a low-pressure CF4 gas time projection chamber, instrumented with charge and scintillation photon readout. This detector design strategy emphasizes reconstruction ...
• (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-03)
We demonstrate a simple method to make high-resolution P-selectin patterns based on microcontact printing for controlling cell rolling. SEM characterization revealed well-defined patterns that could direct the trajectories ...
• (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2012-05)
High-throughput technologies including transcriptional profiling, proteomics and reverse genetics screens provide detailed molecular descriptions of cellular responses to perturbations. However, it is difficult to integrate ...
• (American Heart Association, 2011-02)
Background—Stent thrombosis is a lethal complication of endovascular intervention. Concern has been raised about the inherent risk associated with specific stent designs and drug-eluting coatings, yet clinical and animal ...
• (Society for Neuroscience, 2012-05)
How human beings integrate information from external sources and internal cognition to produce a coherent experience is still not well understood. During the past decades, anatomical, neurophysiological and neuroimaging ...
• (SPIE, 2009-04)
This paper presents our solution for enabling a quadrotor helicopter to autonomously navigate unstructured and unknown indoor environments. We compare two sensor suites, specifically a laser rangefinder and a stereo camera. ...
• (American Physical Society, 2012-01)
Coherent neutrino-nucleon scattering offers a unique approach in the search for physics beyond the standard model. When used in conjunction with monoenergetic neutrino sources, the technique can be sensitive to the existence ...
• (American Physical Society, 2012-05)
Monoenergetic muon neutrinos (235.5 MeV) from positive kaon decay at rest are considered as a source for an electron neutrino appearance search. In combination with a liquid argon time projection chamber based detector, ...
• (BioMed Central Ltd., 2013-01)
Background: Regulation of lipid metabolism via activation of sterol regulatory element binding proteins (SREBPs) has emerged as an important function of the Akt/mTORC1 signaling axis. Although the contribution of dysregulated ...
• (Public Library of Science, 2010-04)
Protein knots, mostly regarded as intriguing oddities, are gradually being recognized as significant structural motifs. Seven distinctly knotted folds have already been identified. It is by and large unclear how these ...
• (American Physical Society (APS), 2011-12)
Suture joints are remarkable mechanical structures found throughout nature composed of compliant interlocking seams connecting stiffer components. This study investigates the underlying mechanisms and the role of geometry ...
• (MIT Press, 2012-04)
The innovation system has interrelated components of invention, translation, adoption, and diffusion. Energy technology innovation has lagged that in other domains, and there is a compelling public interest in picking up ...
• (Society of Photo-optical Instrumentation Engineers, 2009-01)
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) involves the administration of photosensitizers followed by illumination of the primary tumor with red light producing reactive oxygen species that cause vascular shutdown and tumor cell necrosis ...
• (Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2009-02)
We determine the energy it takes to move a test quark along a circle of radius L with angular frequency ω through the strongly coupled plasma of $\mathcal{N}=4$ supersymmetric Yang–Mills (SYM) theory. We find that for most ...
• (John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2011-09)
The supersecondary structure of amyloids and prions, proteins of intense clinical and biological interest, are difficult to determine by standard experimental or computational means. In addition, significant conformational ...
• (National Academy of Sciences, 2012-02)
Approximately 30% of human cancers harbor oncogenic gain-of-function mutations in KRAS. Despite interest in KRAS as a therapeutic target, direct blockade of KRAS function with small molecules has yet to be demonstrated. ...
• (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2012-06)
The input/output dynamic behavior of a biomolecular system is affected by interconnection to other downstream systems through impedance-like effects called retroactivity. In this paper, we study the effects of retroactivity ...
• (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, 2009-01)
Consider a routing problem for a team of vehicles in the plane: target points appear randomly over time in a bounded environment and must be visited by one of the vehicles. It is desired to minimize the expected system time ...
• (Springer, 2008-10)
In this paper, we study the problem of designing motion strategies for a team of mobile agents, required to fulfill request for on-site service in a given planar region. In our model, each service request is generated by ...
• (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-07)
This paper presents a framework for controlling the development of a vascular system in an in vitro angiogenesis process. Based on online measurement of cell growth and a stochastic cell population model, a closed-loop ...
