261 Chen, YuminActivation of small molecules by cationic transition metal atoms and oxidesGuided ion beam mass spectrometry techniques are used to study the gas-phase ion-molecule reactions of hydrogen and oxygen molecules with second row transition metal ions, M+ = Y+, Ru+, Rh+, Pd+, and Ag+, as well as the reactions of Rh+ and Ag+ with several small alkanes. The cross sections for the ...Transition metal compounds; Methane; Molecular dynamics1995-03
262 Liu, TongActivation of the apoptotic pathway in response to chemotherapy in childhood leukemiaAcute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is the most common pediatric malignancy. Although patients with ALL have benefited greatly from dramatic advances in chemotherapy, a substantial number of patients eventually fail to respond to treatment, and their prognosis is poor. Cytotoxic chemotherapeutic age...Drug Therapy2000-05
263 Son, JiyoungActive Sperm Separation Technique Using an Inertial Microfluidic DeviceMicrofluidic technology has the unique potential to separate sperm from unwanted debris while improving the effectiveness of assisted reproductive technologies (ART). Limitations of current clinical protocols regarding separation of sperm from other cells and cellular debris can lead to low sperm re...Bioengineering; Engineering; Electrical engineering2017
264 Watts, KrystalActive aging center: Holladay, UtahEverywhere we turn we are confronted by the fact that we are aging. The baby boomers are reaching their "silver" and "golden" years. In fact, in 2004 the older population (65+) numbered 36.3 million; in the year 2030, this number is expected to be around 71.5 million.Baby boomers; Elderly2007
265 Steigerwaldt, Brett AlanActive shoe sole capable of providing a level walking surface on low-angled terrainAnkle-related ailments resulting from genetics or injury vary throughout the population and a variety of treatment methods exist to help these individuals cope with limited ankle mobility.
