    • Multi-scale optical imaging techniques for early cancer detection in the gastrointestinal tract 

      Tang, Yubo (2017-04-19)
      Gastrointestinal (GI) cancers impose an enormous burden on the society worldwide and a significant proportion of this burden can be prevented through early cancer detection and treatment. Current screening and surveillance ...
    • Multi-stage designs in dose-response studies 

      Spears, Floyd Martin (1993)
      Designs are explored that minimize the asymptotic variance of a single parameter in a dose-response study designed to estimate this parameter. An example is a design to find the dose producing 50% response. Uncertainty of ...
    • Multi-stage Programming for Mainstream Languages 

      Abdelatif, Tamer; Inoue, Jun; Ricken, Mathias; Taha, Walid; Westbrook, Edwin; Yao, Yilong (2009-07-27)
      Multi-stage programming (MSP) provides a disciplined approach to run-time code generation. In the purely functional setting, it has been shown how MSP can be used to reduce the overhead of abstractions, allowing clean, ...

      A size and shape tuned, multifunctional metal chalcogenide, Cu2S-based nanotheranostic agent is developed for trimodal imaging and multimodal therapeutics against brain cancer cells. This theranostic agent was highly ...
    • Multi-tier caching of dynamic content for database-driven Web sites 

      Rajamani, Karthick (2002)
      Web sites have gradually shifted from delivering just static html pages and images to customized, user-specific content and plethora of online services. The new features and facilities are made possible by dynamic content ...
    • Multi-type branching process models of cell proliferation 

      Stivers, David Neil (1995)
      (Axelrod et al., 1993) carried out experiments in which colonies of mouse fibroblast cells were dispersed and seeded to form secondary colonies. They found that there existed highly significant correlations between sizes ...
    • Multi-wavelength analysis of solar transient phenomena 

      Coyner, Aaron J. (2009)
      Solar transient phenomena such as solar flares and coronal mass ejection are some of the most energetic and explosive phenomena affecting the solar environment. Emission signatures within solar flares provide direct insight ...
    • Multi-wire proportional counter system for low energy nuclear physics 

      Gabitzsch, Norman Dan (1972)
      A multi-wire proportional counter system capable of detecting low mass particles at tandem Van de Graaff energies has been developed. Each multi-wire proportional counter, operating at a pressure of 50-150 Torr, subtends ...
    • Multibody mechanics and the residual flexibility method 

      Miller, Scott Michael (1996)
      This thesis provides first an introduction to an area of continuum mechanics the author terms multibody mechanics. Therein, a continuum is separated into a finite number of bodies. By merging ideas from classical and ...
    • Multicanonical molecular dynamics by variable-temperature thermostats and variable-pressure barostats 

      Zhang, Cheng; Deem, Michael W. (2013)
      Sampling from flat energy or density distributions has proven useful in equilibrating complex systems with large energy barriers. Several thermostats and barostats are presented to sample these flat distributions by molecular ...
    • Multicomponent seismic data analysis in the tau-p domain 

      Jiang, Zerong (1997)
      I develop a number of new methods for performing slant stacking and its variants suitable to the processing of ocean bottom seismograph (OBS) data. I develop two versions of the discrete Radon transform (DRT) pair, a ...
    • Multidirectional search: A direct search algorithm for parallel machines 

      Torczon, Virginia Joanne (1989)
      In recent years there has been a great deal of interest in the development of optimization algorithms which exploit the computational power of parallel computer architectures. We have developed a new direct search algorithm, ...
    • Multidomain peptides for promoting angiogenesis 

      Hartgerink, Jeffrey Dale; Kumar, Vivek Ashok (2016-12-27)
      The present disclosure provides a composition comprising a multi-domain peptide capable of self-assembly into a nanofibrous hydrogel structure capable of stimulating a robust angiogenic response. In one embodiment, the ...
    • Multidomain Peptides: Sequence-Nanostructure Relationships and Biological Applications 

      Bakota, Erica Laraine (2011)
      Peptides are materials that, as a result of their polymeric nature, possess enormous versatility and customizability. Multidomain peptides are a class of peptides that selfassemble to form stable, cytocompatible hydro gels. ...
    • Multiformity: Toward a Multiparamater Effectiveness
