31 German, MassiellA genetic analysis of VSX2 function in the mouse eyeVsx2 is a homeodomain-containing transcription factor essential for maintenance of neuroretinal identity and neurogenesis. Vsx2 is believed to function via mechanisms that are strictly cell-intrinsic. However, recent research reveals evidence for involvement of Vsx2-mediated cell non-autonomous mech...Neurogenesis - physiology2012-05
32 Christensen, David S.Harmonization of EU-U.S. regulatory standards: challenges and opportunitiesThe prevailing trend of lower tariffs over the past half century has dramatically increased global trade flows and has exposed many previously invisible non-tariff barriers to trade, including trade-distorting regulatory practices. In this paper, I provide a broad overview of current practice and th...United States. Trade Development.; Eurupoean Union trade relations; Harmonizing standards2012-05
33 Gregersen, DylanSearching for extragalactic stars among candidate halo moving clustersWe seek to identify stars accreted into the Milky Way which are remnants of its merging with smaller galaxies or star clusters. In our approach, we selected stars from candidate moving clusters in the Milky Way's Halo. These stars were grouped by similar stellar characteristics: orbital energy, orbi...Halo stars; Extragalactic origins; Milky Way2012-05
34 Choi, Andrew YoungExamining off-task behaviors as regulatory mediators of long-term interest and performance onlineLearning via the Internet requires greater reliance on self-regulation (Artino & Stephens, 2009). Online students have easier access to both interesting related materials (i.e.,lesson-related videos) and unrelated materials (i.e., social media). Initial results from the Regulation of Motivation and ...Internet literacy - Study and teaching; Regulation of Motivation and Performance Online (RMAPO)2012-05
35 Johnson, KariAnne RencherIdentification of PASK substrates and/or interacting proteinsPAS kinase (PASK) is an evolutionary conserved serine/threonine kinase that appears to have a role in the regulation of cellular energy metabolism. It has previously been shown that mice lacking PASK (PASK"/_ mice) are resistant to the development of hepatic steatosis (lipid accumulation in the live...Biology2012-05
36 Sibbernsen, ColinDigital activism: Addressing social movements in the digital ageTechnological progression in the area of information and communication technology allows for expansion of prior social movement theorizing.

37 Craner, Bethlyn "Buffy" SageA nation of inequality: The effects of inequality on health, crime and economic achievementIncome inequality is on the rise, growing rapidly since the mid 1970's in the United States of America (Weeks 2007). This study will investigate the effects an increasing gap between the affluent and impoverished has on critical factors of social welfare. A meta-assessment will be performed combinin...Income inequality - United States2012-05
38 Johnson, KentIn search of a universal model for personal dataA comprehensive model of personal data provides citizens across the globe with protections to breaches of personal data and facilitates the sharing of valuable data. Personal data are valuable to those who create it and those who use it. Creating a universal model for personal data enables that valu...Personal data protection; OpenID; Facebook Connect2012-05
39 Peterson, Joseph RyanDeflagration and detonation modeling of heterogeneous condensed phase explosivesA modeling approach to the deflagration and detonation phenomena is employed to study a variety of explosive scenarios. An engineering model for macroscale reaction of energetic materials over the wide range of explosive reaction from deflagration to detonation is developed based upon solid foundati...Deflagration phenomena; Detonation phenomena; mesoscale model2012-05
40 Posselli, DarcyThe presence of environmental advocacy through the foundational theology of love, contemplation, and prayer in midcentury ChristianityIn the 1968 essay "The Historical Roots of Our Ecological Crisis," Lynn White Jr. makes an argument for what he evaluates as the influence of Christianity on Western culture, which has led to the environmental degradation that marks the 20th century. By looking at a few prominent theologians who wer...Poetry - 20th century; Christianity and nature; Tillich, Paul, 1886-1965; Merton, Thomas, 1915-1968; Cardenal, Ernesto; Levertov, Denise, 1923-19972012-05
41 Johnston, Jessica FaithFrom nanoscience to astrophysics: using high-resolution microscopy and spectroscopy of carbonaceous chondrites to understand planet formationIn the field of astrophysics, there currently exists an outstanding gap of knowledge in understanding planet formation dynamics. At the formation scale ranging from millimeters to meters, astrophysicists debate as to how solar nebulae form larger masses-planets and other kilometer-sized bodies-from ...Physics & Astronomy2012-05
42 Porter, Louis-BassettPerceived stress and ambulatory blood pressure: an analysis of potential health behavior mechanismsAmbulatory blood pressure (ABP) has been linked to perceived stress. However, research is needed on the more specific processes that might be responsible for such a link. In the present study, we examined how potential health behavior mechanisms (weekly exercise, weekly alcohol consumption, and smok...Ambulatory blood pressure measurement; stress management2012-05
43 Pham, John V.The function of the protein VCP/CDC48-associated mitochondrial stress-responsive 1 in mammalsAlthough mitochondrial dysfunction has been linked to many human diseases, mitochondrial interacting proteins and protein quality controls are just beginning to be understood.
