Description

Title:The Role of Ultrasound Contrast Agents in Producing Sonoporation
Author(s):Forbes, Monica Mary
Doctoral Committee Chair(s):O'Brien, William D.
Degree Granting Institution:University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Degree:Ph.D.
Genre:Dissertation
Subject(s):Engineering, Biomedical
Abstract:This dissertation successfully elucidated the physical mechanism of sonoporation. Oscillation of UCAs near a cell produced microstreaming that resulted in shear stress on the cell membranes. This shear stress resulted in sonoporation, a permeability change that allowed for the uptake of macromolecules into the cells.
