Synthesis and Characterization of 3-D Tissue Engineered Tumor Models for Melanoma Study and Extracellular Matrix Investigation
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 ...
Effect of Tannic Acid Crosslinking on the Mechanical Properties of Collagen Scaffolds and Melanoma Cell Proliferation
Metastatic melanoma is responsible for nearly 10,000 deaths in the United States each year. While the prognosis for patients with localized early stage melanoma cancer is good, the chances of survival for patients with ...
Mapping Tools for Measuring Gross Motor Function in Conductive Education
Cerebral Palsy (CP) is a collection of disorders caused by disturbances in the developing brain before, during, or just after birth that affect the development of movement and posture resulting in limitations in activity. ...
A Review of the Potential Therapeutic Application of Vagus Nerve Stimulation During Childbirth
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 ...
Impact of Electrospun Conduit Composition and Peritoneal Pre-conditioning on Patency and Remodeling of Tissue Engineered Vascular Grafts
Overall goal of this project was to develop a tissue engineered vascular graft by implanting an electrospun tubular conduit into the peritoneal cavity to recruit autologous cells to it and provide the cells with the ...
Monitoring Heart Rate Variability in Relation to Sleep Quality
The development and analysis of heart rate variability for sleep quality monitoring have been concerned for many years in human being. Sleep is a physiological process that is essentially maintaining the function of human ...
