Direction and plan for the institute from 2012 - 2018.
Sensitive Detection of Pathway Perturbations in Cancers
Background The normal functioning of a living cell is characterized by complex interaction networks involving many different types of molecules. Associations detected between diseases and perturbations in well-defined ...
Role of coexisting tetragonal regions in the rhombohedral phase of Na0.5Bi0.5TiO3-xat.%BaTiO3 crystals on enhanced piezoelectric properties on approaching the morphotropic phase boundary
(AIP Publishing, 2012-01-01)
The ferroelectric domain and local structures of Na0.5Bi0.5TiO3-xat.%BaTiO3 (NBT-x%BT) crystals for x = 0, 4.5, and 5.5 have been investigated by transmission electron microscopy. The results show that the size of polar ...

Three-Dimensional Characterization of Iron Oxide (alpha-Fe2O3) Nanoparticles: Application of a Compressed Sensing Inspired Reconstruction Algorithm to Electron Tomography
(Cambridge University Press, 2012-12)
In this article, we demonstrate the application of a new compressed sensing three-dimensional reconstruction algorithm for electron tomography that increases the accuracy of morphological characterization of nanostructured ...
Dielectrophoretic differentiation of mouse ovarian surface epithelial cells, macrophages, and fibroblasts using contactless dielectrophoresis
(American Institute of Physics, 2012-06-01)
Ovarian cancer is the leading cause of death from gynecological malignancies in women. The primary challenge is the detection of the cancer at an early stage, since this drastically increases the survival rate. In this ...
