  • Ishimatsu, Takuto; Leveson, Nancy G.; Thomas, John P.; Katahira, Masafumi; Miyamoto, Yuko; Ujiie, Ryo; Nakao, Haruka; Hoshino, Nobuyuki; Fleming, Cody Harrison (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, 2014-02)
    A new hazard analysis technique, called systems-theoretic process analysis, is capable of identifying potential hazardous design flaws, including software and system design errors and unsafe interactions among multiple ...
  • Cheng, Ing-Haw; Milbradt, Konstantin (Oxford University Press, 2011-12)
    We investigate the trade-off between incentive provision and inefficient rollover freezes for a firm financed with short-term debt. First, debt maturity that is too short-term is inefficient, even with incentive provision. ...
  • JnBaptiste, Courtney Kenneil; Michaud, Joelle; Praz, Viviane; James Faresse, Nicole; Tyagi, Shweta; Schutz, Frederic; Herr, Winship (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, 2013-03)
    In human transcriptional regulation, DNA-sequence-specific factors can associate with intermediaries that orchestrate interactions with a diverse set of chromatin-modifying enzymes. One such intermediary is HCFC1 (also ...
  • Park, Boyoun; Spooner, Eric; Houser, Brandy L.; Strominger, Jack L.; Ploegh, Hidde (Rockefeller University Press, The, 2010-08)
    Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) encodes an endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-resident transmembrane glycoprotein, US10, expressed early in the replicative cycle of HCMV as part of the same cluster that encodes the known immunoevasins ...
  • Sanchez-Gaytan, Brenda L.; Fay, Francois; Lobatto, Mark E.; Tang, Jun; Ouimet, Mireille; Kim, YongTae; van der Staay, Susanne E. M.; van Rijs, Sarian M.; Priem, Bram; Zhang, Liangfang; Fisher, Edward A.; Moore, Kathryn J.; Langer, Robert; Fayad, Zahi A.; Mulder, Willem J. M. (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2015-02)
    High-density lipoprotein (HDL) is a natural nanoparticle that exhibits an intrinsic affinity for atherosclerotic plaque macrophages. Its natural targeting capability as well as the option to incorporate lipophilic payloads, ...
  • Wampler, Charles Wilson; Gao, Dalong (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-12)
    In the design of robotic systems that safely interact with people, it is useful to have validated criteria for measuring injury risks. To this end, some researchers have advocated the use of metrics developed for assessing ...
  • Xu, Guoqiang; Demkowicz, Michael J. (American Physical Society, 2013-10)
    We present a new mechanism—discovered using molecular dynamics simulations—that leads to complete healing of nanocracks. This mechanism relies on the generation of crystal defects known as disclinations by migrating grain ...
  • Khademhosseini, Ali (Springer International Publishing, 2015-12)
    Recently, the Institute for Regenerative Engineering (IRE) at the University of Connecticut (UConn) Health announced the launch of the Hartford Engineering A Limb (HEAL) initiative, which aims to “regenerate a new human ...
  • Agha-mohammadi, Ali-akbar; Ure, Nazim Kemal; How, Jonathan P.; Vian, John (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014-09)
    In persistent missions, taking system’s health and capability degradation into account is an essential factor to predict and avoid failures. The state space in health-aware planning problems is often a mixture of continuous ...
  • Venti, Steven; Wise, David A.; Poterba, James M. (University of Chicago Press, The, 2013-12)
    We explore the relationship between education and the evolution of wealth after retirement. Asset growth following retirement depends in part on health capital and financial capital accumulated prior to retirement, which ...
  • Dryden, Emily B.; Guillemin, Victor W.; Sena-Dias, Rosa Isabel (American Mathematical Society, 2011-10)
    Let M[superscript 2n] be a symplectic toric manifold with a fixed T[superscript n]-action and with a toric Kähler metric g. Abreu (2003) asked whether the spectrum of the Laplace operator Δ[subscript g] on C∞ (M) determines ...
  • Guo, Wei; Hight, Ariel E.; Chen, Jenny X.; Klapoetke, Nathan Cao; Hancock, Kenneth E.; Shinn-Cunningham, Barbara G.; Lee, Daniel J.; Polley, Daniel B.; Boyden, Edward Stuart (Nature Publishing Group, 2015-05)
    Optogenetics provides a means to dissect the organization and function of neural circuits. Optogenetics also offers the translational promise of restoring sensation, enabling movement or supplanting abnormal activity ...
  • Magagnin, Valentina; Mauri, Maurizio; Cipresso, Pietro; Mainardi, Luca; Brown, Emery N.; Cerutti, Sergio; Villamira, Marco; Barbieri, Riccardo (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-09)
    The study of emotions elicited by human-computer interactions is a promising field that could lead to the identification of specific patterns of affective states. We present a heart rate variability (HRV) assessment of the ...
  • Choma, Michael A.; Suter, Melissa J.; Vakoc, Benjamin; Bouma, Brett E.; Tearney, Guillermo J. (Society of Photo-optical Instrumentation Engineers, 2010-09)
    Drosophila melanogaster (fruit fly) is a central organism in biology and is becoming increasingly important in the cardiovascular sciences. Prior work in optical imaging of the D. melanogaster heart has focused on static ...
  • Wang, Jianjian; Gao, Jinwei; Chen, Gang; Zheng, Ruiting (Elsevier, 2012-02)
    Nanofluids, liquids containing suspensions of nanoparticles, have been reported by some groups to exhibit substantially higher thermal conductivity than that of their corresponding base fluids that cannot be explained by ...
  • Chen, Dye-Zone A.; Chen, Gang (Global Digital Central, 2010-01)
    We present a calculation of the thermally generated electromagnetic flux propagating along the in-plane direction of a polar, thin film. The approach is based on fluctuational electrodynamics and the fluctuation-dissipation ...
  • Tow, Emily W.; Lienhard, John H. (International Desalination Association, 2013-10)
    Humidification-dehumidification is a promising technology for decentralized, small-scale desalination, but high energy consumption and large dehumidifier size are disadvantages. Direct-contact dehumidification in bubble ...
  • Terry, James L.; Labombard, Brian; Brunner, Daniel Frederic; Hughes, Jerry W., Jr.; Reinke, Matthew Logan; Whyte, Dennis G. (Elsevier, 2013-01)
    IR thermography is used to measure the heat flux footprints on C-Mod’s outer target in I-mode and EDA H-mode plasmas. The footprint profiles are fit to a function with a simple physical interpretation. The fit parameter ...
  • Schulz, Norbert S.; Huenemoerder, David P.; Ji, Li; Yao, Y.; Canizares, Claude R. (American Astronomical Society, 2009-01)
    We observed at very high spectral resolution the prototype Z-source Cyg X-2 twice along its entire X-ray spectral variation pattern. In this preliminary analysis, we find an extended accretion disk corona (ADC) exhibiting ...
  • Cantillon-Murphy, Padraig; Wald, L. L.; Zahn, Markus (Elsevier, 2009-11)
    In the presence of alternating-sinusoidal or rotating magnetic fields, magnetic nanoparticles will act to realign their magnetic moment with the applied magnetic field. The realignment is characterized by the nanoparticle's ...
