(2012-05-22)This study seeks to expand the field of photonic crystal enhanced microscopy by extending simple proof-of-concept experiments to advanced biological applications. There are four distinct projects that are related to a ...
Analysis of the role of the transcription factor C/EBPβ in controlling uterine functions during early pregnancy (2010-05-14)Embryo implantation into the endometrium is a complex biological process involving the integration of steroid hormone signaling, endometrial tissue remodeling and maternal- fetal communications. A successful pregnancy is ...
(2012-05-22)Tissue engineering aims to regenerate lost or damaged tissues and frequently combines therapeutic cells, biomaterial scaffolds, and therapeutic molecules in efforts to do so. One of the primary considerations in such ...
(2015-12-11)Quantum dots (QDs) are photo-luminescent nanocrystals that possess unique optical properties such as a narrow emission range and high photo-stability, which makes them useful for a variety of biological imaging applications. ...
Extracellular-matrix mediated regulation of human uterine leiomyoma smooth muscle cells and potential targeting by the anti-fibrotic drug halofuginone (2013-02-03)Uterine leiomyomas are known as the most commonly occurring neoplasms in women during their reproductive years. The overall incidence of these benign tumors can be as high as 70-80%, which represents a significant health ...
Fluorescence resonance energy transfer-based subcellular visualization of FAK/Src activation by chemical and mechanical environment (2013-02-03)In response to environmental cues, neural circuits are maintained and rewired by growth cone dynamics, which are regulated by cytoskeleton reorganization and focal adhesion dynamics. Src and focal adhesion kinase (FAK) are ...
