|Comparing the virulence and prevalence of shiga toxin-producing escherichia coli (STEC) O157 and non-O517 serogroups
|Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) are bacteria known to cause human illness. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 265,000 STEC infections occur in the United States (U.S.) annually; symptoms range from mild diarrhea to life-threatening hemolytic uremic syndrome. S...

|Confirming and quantifying ectoine production in Salinovibrio SP. eagsl in hypersaline culture
|Salinivibrio sp. EAGSL was isolated from the Great Salt Lake in 2017 and has since been the focus of promising research in the field of microbial electrochemistry. Namely, S. EAGSL is an organism with both halotolerance and electroactivity, giving it a unique ability to bridge the gap between power ...
|Creating a new class of cyanocarbons with unexplored chemistry
|Organic charge transfer complexes have been known for decades, but have experienced a resurgence in recent years. This paper explores the properties of a cyano carbon molecule and its potential for use as an acceptor in charge-transfer complexes. Pentacyano-trifluoromethyl benzene [C6(CN)5CF3] was s...
|Early detection of human chorionic gonadotrophin with consumer-grade testing methods
|This study examined the ability of consumer-grade pregnancy tests to detect urine hCG at low concentrations early in a person's luteal phase and before the expected menses. Testing was performed with a commercially available pregnancy test strip that has a sensitivity of 10 mIU/mL. This is compared ...

|Effects of trem-1 expression on acute phase seizures in a mouse model of viral-induced epilepsy
|Around 70 million people worldwide suffer from epilepsy, a neurological disorder that causes unprovoked and persistent seizures. A dominant cause of acquired epilepsies are from injuries to the central nervous system (CNS), such as viral infection of the CNS that results in brain inflammation (encep...
|The implications of childhood maltreatment and current life stress for pregnant women's hair cortisol concentrations
|The hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis is one of the core components of the body's stress system. As such, the HPA axis is responsive to many different stressors, including those in childhood-such as childhood maltreatment-as well as sources of current life stress. The product of the HPA axis...

|The role of socioeconomic status in understanding ethnic differences among remerging adults with type 1 diabetes
|Emerging adulthood is often characterized as a "high-risk period" for emerging adults (EAs) with T1D as they have higher HbA1c (a metric of glucose control across the last 3- 4 months) and poorer self-management compared to other age groups. Emerging adults may also experience disparities associated...
