    • Reference point indentation is not indicative of whole mouse bone measures of stress intensity fracture toughness 

      Carriero, Alessandra; Bruse, Jan L.; Oldknow, Karla J.; Millán, José Luis; Farquharson, Colin; Shefelbine, Sandra J. (2014-10-14)
      Bone fragility is a concern for aged and diseased bone. Measuring bone toughness and understanding fracture properties of the bone are critical for predicting fracture risk associated with age and disease and for preclinical ...
    • A Review of the Potential Therapeutic Application of Vagus Nerve Stimulation During Childbirth 

      Enderli, Tanya (2017-03)
      The goal of this research is to show that transcutaneous Vagus nerve stimulation (tVNS) should be investigated as a possible modality for increasing endogenous release of oxytocin during childbirth. There have been many ...
    • Short pulse laser propagation through tissues 

      Das, Champak; Trivedi, Ashish; Mitra, Kunal; Vo-Dinh, Tuan (2003-07-22)
      An experimental and numerical study is performed to analyze short pulse laser propagation through tissue phantoms without and with inhomogeneities/tumors imbedded in it. Short pulse laser probing techniques has distinct ...
    • Short-pulse laser propagation through tissue medium for tumor detection 

      Pal, Gopalendu; Mitra, Kunal; Vo- Dinh, Tuan (2006-02-25)
      The objective of this paper is to perform a comprehensive experimental and numerical analysis of the short pulse laser interaction with tissue medium with the goal of tumor / cancer diagnostics. For short pulse laser source, ...
    • Solarizer 

      Brandt, Michael; Green, Michael; Pearce, Shelby; Soileau, Liana
      In developing countries and following natural disasters, there is a need for a portable solar powered autoclave to properly sterilize surgical equipment because there is often no access to electricity or natural gas. Without ...
    • Synthesis and Characterization of 3-D Tissue Engineered Tumor Models for Melanoma Study and Extracellular Matrix Investigation 

      Spano, Joseph L. (2017-05)
      Introduction: Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer, projected to claim over 9,700 American lives and necessitate $3.3 billion in care and treatment costs in 2017. In order to reduce the socioeconomic burdens and ...
    • Testing methods to mitigate Caribbean yellow-band disease on Orbicella faveolata 

      Randall, Carly J.; Whitcher, Elizabeth M.; Code, Tessa; Pollock, Clayton J.; Lundgren, Ian F.; Hillis-Starr, Zandy Marie; Muller, Erinn M. (2018-05-11)
      Outbreaks of coral diseases continue to reduce global coral populations. In the Caribbean, yellow band is a severe and wide-spread disease that commonly affects corals of the Orbicella spp. complex, significantly impeding ...
    • Theranostic oxygen delivery using Ultrasound and microbubbles 

      Kwan, James J.; Kaya, Mehmet; Borden, Mark A.; Dayton, Paul A. (2012-12-23)
      Means to overcome tumor hypoxia have been the subject of clinical investigations since the 1960’s; however these studies have yet to find a treatment which is widely accepted. It has been known for nearly a century that ...

    • Transmission characteristics of an all-optical-waveguide biomedical system for x-ray delivery 

      Waynant, Ronald W.; Ilev, Ilko K.; Mitra, Kunal; Gannot, Israel; Jennings, Robert J. (2002-03-26)
      We have investigated the transmission characteristics of an alternative all-optical-waveguide system for x-ray delivery to a precise tissue area. The delivery system includes two basic optical elements: a funnel-shaped ...
    • Using Dispersive Raman Spectroscopy to Assess Remodeling in Vascular Constructs used in Tissue Engineering 

      Theus, Andrea S. (2018-05)
      Tissue engineered vascular grafts (TEVGs) are a promising alternative to surgery for the treatment of thrombotic occlusion of small diameter (< 6 mm) arteries. It is important that TEVG composition prevent compliance ...
    • Vasreactor 

      Boeringer, Tabitha; Estacio, Alvin; Hyland, Joan; Theus, Andrea
      Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. There are numerous issues with finding healthy blood vessels in such patients, with them often having to return to surgery due to bypass failure. Bioreactors ...
