A disposable bio-nano-chip usuing agarose beads for protein analysis
This thesis reports on the fabrication of a disposable bio-nano-chip (BNC), a microfluidic device composed of polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) and thiolene-based optical epoxy which is both cost-effective and suitable for high ...
Computational and Theoretical Analysis of Influenza Virus Evolution and Immune System Dynamics
Influenza causes annual global epidemics and severe morbidity and mortality. The influenza virus evolves to escape from immune system antibodies that bind to it. The immune system produces influenza virus specific antibodies ...
Computational Biology: Insights into Hemagglutinin and Polycomb Repressive Complex 2 Function
Influenza B virus hemagglutinin (HA) is a major surface glycoprotein with frequent amino-acid substitutions. However, the roles of antibody selection in the amino-acid substitutions of HA were still poorly understood. An ...
A flourescence activated cell sorting strategy for enrichment of adult neural progenitor cells
The discovery of neural stem cells (NSC) within the adult mammalian brain continues to fuel optimism regarding the ability of potential regenerative medicine applications to provide enhanced functional recovery from brain ...
Tailoring vessel morphology in vivo
Tissue engineering is a rapidly growing field which seeks to provide alternatives to organ transplantation in order to address the increasing need for transplantable tissues. One huge hurdle in this effort is the provision ...
