1 Colasanto, Mary Patricia"Of mice and men": connective tissue regulation of muscle developmentDevelopment of the limb musculoskeleton requires the coordinated morphogenesis of muscle with connective tissue, tendon, and bone. The close developmental association of muscle with muscle connective tissue suggests that interactions between these tissues may be critical for development. T-box trans...Genetics2017
2 Samson, Shiela C.3-ost-7 regulates cardiac function and development in zebrafishHeparan sulfate proteoglycans (HSPGs) are biologically relevant molecules composed of core proteins and glycosaminoglycan (GAG) chains.

The assembly pathway of the CcO complex is a coordinated ...2010-02
12 Sunada, Grant RogerA Longitudinal Study of Women Coaching Women Through Motivational Interviewing and the Interrelationships Between Depression, Health Behaviors, and Changes in ObesitySome evidence supports the development of holistic interventions that address the overlap between obesity and depression, the both of which have increased burden among women in marginalized communities. Additional understanding about the interrelationships between obesity, health behaviors, and depr...Public health; Mental health; Behavioral sciences2018
13 Chiaro, Tyson RichardA Member of the Mycobiome Modulates a Host Metabolite to Increase Intestinal Permeability and DiseaseThe human body is a fascinating arrangement of cellular organization necessary to support life; it is also home to trillions of microorganisms. The largest concentration of these commensal microbes exists within the gastrointestinal tract (GI) where bacteria dominate the landscape. Accordingly, the ...2015-05
14 Holden, Kathryn Irene.A Model for problem solving using computer-assisted instruction.The purpose of this study was to design a model of an educationally sound instructional, unit that would assist students in medical laboratory science to develop competent skills in the process of problem-solving.
