1 A novel MRI-based screening method for assessing atrio-esophageal fistula risk following cardia ablationAtrio-esophageal fistulas affect 1 in 2000 patients who undergo cardiac ablation procedures with a mortality rate of 93%. Methods for detecting atrio-esophageal fistula formation that are objective and non-invasive could reduce the mortality associated with this disease. This study was performed ret...Magnetic resonance imaging; Cardia ablation; Trio-esophageal fistual2014-12
2 Development of a bioabsorbalbe active release antimicrobial coating for orthopedic implantsOrthopedic implantations often create an opportunity for biofilm-related infections to arise. Patients infected with biofilm must often undergo additional surgeries for repair or replacement, which puts them at a greater risk of osteomyelitis, sepsis, and other complications including death [17]. T...Orthopedic implants - Research; Anti-infective agents - Research; Staphyloccoccal infections - Prevention and control - Research; Antimicrobial coating; Staphylococcus aureus2016-05
3 Endogenous ceramide contributes to cardiovascular complications in Type II diabetes by decreasing the association between PP2A and I2PP2ACardiovascular complications are the leading cause of death in individuals with conditions associated with insulin resistance, e.g. type 2 diabetes, diet-induced obesity. In patients with type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular complications are 2-4 times more prevalent. One common cardiovascular complicati...Ceramides - Physiological effect; Diabetic angiopathies2014
4 Impacts of Tobacco Smoke Exposure and Outlier Body Mass Indices on Pediatric Asthma OutcomesThere are seven million children in the United States impacted by asthma [1]. When assessing the severity of a child's asthma, it is important to take into account risk factors known to affect child hood asthma. Two such risk factors that are modifiable include parental tobacco smoke exposure (TSE)...Asthma - Child; Tobacco smoke - Health aspects - United States2015-05
5 Increased gluti expression in mouse cardiomyocytes preserves mitochondrial function but is insufficient to attenuate pressure overload-induced contractile dysfunctionLifelong over-expression of GLUT1 transporter in the heart has been shown to preserve contractile function after aortic constriction. However it is unclear whether this protective effect is due to GLUT1 overexpression itself or due to reprogramming of heart metabolism as a result of long-term increa...Bioengineering2013-04
6 Managing limited ECG access in a clinical cardiac electrophysiology settingElectrocardiographic Imaging (ECGI) is a computational approach that seeks to reconstruct cardiac electrical activity with high precision from body surface ECGs by solving a numerical inverse problem. Though there have been great advancements in ECGI, there is still a need for progress in specific a...Electrocardiography - Research; Heart - Diseases - Diagnosis; Body surface potentials2016-05
7 Social behaviors in the developing Danio Rerio larva and adult DanionellaLarval zebrafish (Danio rerio) in most respects excel as an animal model in the study of neural networks, due to their small size and optical transparency. These traits permit optogenetic manipulation and live neuronal imaging of the entire brain, which when paired with behavioral analysis, have pot...Zebrafish (Zebra danio) - behavior; Zebrafish - embryology; Zebrafish - physiology2016-04
