Towards an Integrated Solution for Renewable Water and Energy

In order to provide an integrated solution for two sustainability issues, supplying clean water and using renewable energy sources, we propose a solar desalination plant that uses solar energy for…

Cell Mechanics in Engineering Mechanics

Cell Mechanics in Engineering Mechanics Cell mechanics is not only a frontier field of biomechanics, but also an important part of tissue engineering. It involves the study of cell membrane,…

Antibiotic Residues Detected in Commercial Cow’s Milk

Cow’s milk is an important food containing vital nutrients for both children and adults. Chemical residues and antimicrobials in milk may be a concern for consumers. In this study we…

Investigating KNOX Gene Expression in Aquilegia Petal Spur Development

Organ growth in many flowering plants progresses through two phases: cell proliferation and cell elongation. Recent work has indicated that class 1 KNOX genes regulate cell proliferation. These genes encode…

Durability of the Continuous Subcutaneous Insulin Infusion (CSII) Patch Adhesive

Diabetes, a serious global epidemic growing at a tremendous rate, affects about 26 million people in the United States. Diabetes occurs when the pancreas cannot produce sufficient insulin or use…

Diamagnetic Solutions Show a Significant Reduction in Flow Rate when Exposed to a Magnetic Field Greater than or equal to 0.7 Tesla

Magnetohydrodynamics describes the complex interactions between water and magnetic fields. These interactions are relatively small in magnitude, and difficult to measure. However, the magnet-water interactions can be seen through the…

Comparing Suturing And Stapling In Coronary Bypass Grafting Anastomosis

Coronary heart disease (CHD) is the number one killer worldwide and is responsible for 12.2% of all deaths. CHD is caused by a plaque buildup in the heart’s arteries, which…

The Effect of ethanol concentration on beta-cell development in zebrafish

Type 1 diabetes is a disorder in which pancreatic β-cells do not provide sufficient insulin to moderate blood sugar levels. Fetal alcohol syndrome is a condition caused by alcohol consumption…

The Effects of Ocean Acidification on the Development and Calcification of the Larval Shells of the Red Abalone Haliotis rufescens Swainson, 1822

This study focuses on the effects of increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide and decreasing pH on the development and calcification of larval red abalone shells. Experimental bowls were inoculated with 2…
