A Spectral Fiedler Field-based Contrast Platform for Imaging of Nanoparticles in Colon Tumor
(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 ...
Segmentations with Explanations for Outage Analysis
(Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, 2018-04-09), TR-18-02
Recent hurricane events have caused unprecedented amounts of damage and severely threatened our public safety and economy. The most observable (and severe) impact of these hurricanes is the loss of electric power in many ...
Modeling Influence using Weak Supervision: A joint Link and Post-level Analysis
(Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, 2018-04-09), TR-18-03
Microblogging websites, like Twitter and Weibo, are used by billions of people to create and spread information. This activity depends on various factors such as the friendship links between users, their topic interests ...
Transcriptomic Analysis of Hepatic Cells in Multicellular Organotypic Liver Models
(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
(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 ...
The Effect of Geography and Citizen Behavior on Motor Vehicle Deaths in the United States
Death due to motor vehicle collisions (MVCs) remains a leading cause of death in the US and alcohol plays a prominent role in a large proportion of these fatalities nationwide. Rates for these incidents vary widely among ...
Virginia Tech Engineer, Winter 2019
(Virginia Tech, 2019-02)
Virginia Tech Engineer is the magazine of the College of Engineering at Virginia Tech.
Double helical conformation and extreme rigidity in a rodlike polyelectrolyte
(Nature Publishing Group, 2019-02-18)
The ubiquitous biomacromolecule DNA has an axial rigidity persistence length of ~50 nm, driven by its elegant double helical structure. While double and multiple helix structures appear widely in nature, only rarely are ...
Microfluidic reactors for advancing the MS analysis of fast biological responses
(Nature Publishing Group, 2019-02-11)
The response of cells to physical or chemical stimuli is complex, unfolding on time-scales from seconds to days, with or without de novo protein synthesis, and involving signaling processes that are transient or sustained. ...
Differentiating between cancer and normal tissue samples using multi-hit combinations of genetic mutations
(Nature Publishing Group, 2019-01-30)
Cancer is known to result from a combination of a small number of genetic defects. However, the specific combinations of mutations responsible for the vast majority of cancers have not been identified. Current computational ...
