  • Multi-material Additive Manufacturing of Metamaterials with Giant, Tailorable Negative Poisson's Ratios 

    Chen, Da; Zheng, Xiaoyu (Springer Nature, 2018-06-14)
    Nature has evolved with a recurring strategy to achieve unusual mechanical properties through coupling variable elastic moduli from a few GPa to below KPa within a single tissue. The ability to produce multi-material, ...
  • Hemostatic nanoparticles increase survival, mitigate neuropathology and alleviate anxiety in a rodent blast trauma model 

    Hubbard, W. Brad; Lashof-Sullivan, Margaret; Greenberg, Shaylen; Norris, Carly; Eck, Joseph; Lavik, Erin; VandeVord, Pamela (Springer Nature, 2018-07-13)
    Explosions account for 79% of combat related injuries and often lead to polytrauma, a majority of which include blast-induced traumatic brain injuries (bTBI). These injuries lead to internal bleeding in multiple organs ...
  • Transcriptomic Analysis of Hepatic Cells in Multicellular Organotypic Liver Models 

    Tegge, Allison N.; Rodrigues, Richard R.; Larkin, Adam L.; Vu, Lucas; Murali, T. M.; Rajagopalan, Padmavathy (Springer Nature, 2018-07-27)
    Liver homeostasis requires the presence of both parenchymal and non-parenchymal cells (NPCs). However, systems biology studies of the liver have primarily focused on hepatocytes. Using an organotypic three-dimensional (3D) ...
  • 3D Bioprinted Human Skeletal Muscle Constructs for Muscle Function Restoration 

    Kim, Ji Hyun; Seol, Young-Joon; Ko, In Kap; Kang, Hyun-Wook; Lee, Young Koo; Yoo, James J.; Atala, Anthony; Lee, Sang Jin (Springer Nature, 2018-08-17)
    A bioengineered skeletal muscle tissue as an alternative for autologous tissue flaps, which mimics the structural and functional characteristics of the native tissue, is needed for reconstructive surgery. Rapid progress ...
  • Oil-Impregnated Hydrocarbon-Based Polymer Films 

    Mukherjee, Ranit; Habibi, Mohammad; Rashed, Ziad T.; Berbert, Otacilio; Shi, Xiangke; Boreyko, Jonathan B. (Springer Nature, 2018-08-03)
    Porous surfaces impregnated with a liquid lubricant exhibit minimal contact angle hysteresis with immiscible test liquids, rendering them ideal as self-cleaning materials. Rather than roughening a solid substrate, an ...
  • A Spectral Fiedler Field-based Contrast Platform for Imaging of Nanoparticles in Colon Tumor 

    Liu, Chenang; Kapoor, Ankur; VanOsdol, Joshua; Ektate, Kalyani; Kong, Zhenyu; Ranjan, Ashish (Springer Nature, 2018-07-30)
    The temporal and spatial patterns of nanoparticle that ferry both imaging and therapeutic agent in solid tumors is significantly influenced by target tissue movement, low spatial resolution, and inability to accurately ...
  • How wind drives the correlation between leaf shape and mechanical properties 

    Louf, Jean-Francois; Nelson, Logan; Kang, Hosung; Song, Pierre Ntoh; Zehnbauer, Tim; Jung, Sunghwan (Springer Nature, 2018-11-05)
    From a geometrical point of view, a non-sessile leaf is composed of two parts: a large flat plate called the lamina, and a long beam called the petiole which connects the lamina to the branch/stem. While wind is exerting ...
  • Femtosecond Laser Pulse Driven Melting in Gold Nanorod Aqueous Colloidal Suspension: Identification of a Transition from Stretched to Exponential Kinetics 

    Li, Yuelin; Lin, Xiao-Min; Wen, Haidan; Walko, Donald A.; Deshmukh, Sanket A.; Subbaraman, Ram; Sankaranarayanan, Subramanian K. R. S.; Gray, Stephen K.; Ho, Phay (Nature, 2015-01-30)
    Many potential industrial, medical, and environmental applications of metal nanorods rely on the physics and resultant kinetics and dynamics of the interaction of these particles with light. We report a surprising kinetics ...
  • Robotic Motion Learning Framework to Promote Social Engagement 

    Burns, Rachael; Jeon, Myounghoon; Park, Chung Hyuk (MDPI, 2018-02-05)
    Imitation is a powerful component of communication between people, and it poses an important implication in improving the quality of interaction in the field of human–robot interaction (HRI). This paper discusses a novel ...
  • Robotic Arts: Current Practices, Potentials, and Implications 

    Jeon, Myounghoon (MDPI, 2017-03-24)
    Given that the origin of the “robot” comes from efforts to create a worker to help people, there has been relatively little research on making a robot for non-work purposes. However, some researchers have explored robotic ...

  • A Hybrid Model for Role-related User Classification on Twitter 

    Li, Liuqing; Song, Ziqian; Zhang, Xuan; Fox, Edward (Virginia Tech, 2018-11-15)
    To aid a variety of research studies, we propose TWIROLE, a hybrid model for role-related user classification on Twitter, which detects male-related, female-related, and brand-related (i.e., organization or institution) ...
  • Nanomaterial enabled sensors for environmental contaminants 

    Willner, Marjorie R; Vikesland, Peter J (2018-11-22)
    Abstract The need and desire to understand the environment, especially the quality of one’s local water and air, has continued to expand with the emergence of the digital age. The bottleneck in understanding ...
