80 Neville, RoselynConstitutively activated AKT is not sufficient to keep cells alive following epithelial cell extrusionThe PI3 kinase (PI3K)/AKT signaling pathway regulates many fundamental behaviors of the cell. If any of the key members of this pathway are deregulated, it can lead to malignant changes in the cell. AKT enhances the survival of cells by inhibiting pro-apoptotic processes, and promoting pathways for ...PI3K/AKT - Chemistry; Cancer metastasis2014-05
81 Beams, AlexanderImplications of antibiotic use for co-infections when a fitness trade-off for resistance is presentHow much does indiscriminate antibiotic use promote the spread of antibiotic-resistant infections in a population? Assuming a fitness trade-off for resistance exists, it is possible for an antibiotic-vulnerable strain to outlast a resistant type within an untreated host carrying both. That means pru...Drug resistance in microorganisms -- Mathematical models Co-infections2015
82 Tran, AmyInvestigating the strategic patterns in LBO fundsIn the mid-2000s, public-to-private transactions reappeared when the United States experienced a second leveraged buyout boom. Most sponsors are paid a management fee of 2% on the fund's capital and receive a carried interest of 20% of the profits realized by the fund. Two literature reviews serve a...Leveraged buyouts--United States--Finance2014-08
83 Black, AlyssaIdentifying hybrid male sterility genes in Drosophila PseudoobscuraSpeciation, the process of one species splitting into two separate species, often involves the evolution of hybrid sterility or hybrid inviability. These reproductive isolating barriers are caused by negative interactions between genes called hybrid incompatibilities.

84 Butler, Alexandra D.Utah's sex education controversy: Is it relevant today?Utah's policy of abstinence only sex education is a contentious issue. Some worry that, if not taught in school, young people will not obtain accurate information on sex, contraceptives, and Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs). Others fear that teaching safe sex will encourage adolescent sexual a...Sex instruction -- Utah2015-05
85 Allam, JeremyLow-energy satellite transfer from Earth to MarsA new type of satellite transfer that uses half the amount of fuel as conventional transfers has been discovered. This transfer, called a low-energy transfer, proved to work in 1991 when a Japanese satellite successfully went in orbit around the moon using this technique. Since then, more research h...Space vehicles -- Dynamics -- Mathematics Space flight to Mars -- Mathematics2015-04
86 Beus, ZacharyPower system stabilizerThe goal of this project, part of the Power Industry Consortium, was to design a power system stabilizer for a small grid-connected three phase synchronous generator. Power System Stabilizers control the excitation of synchronous generators to reduce lowfrequency oscillations on the grid and increas...Voltage regulators; Power system stabilizers2015-05
87 Wang, WenyiImaging in a homogeneous aluminum plate by using ultrasonic wavesThis project is about detecting and imaging damage (such as cracks) in a plate by using ultrasonic waves. The waves are generated by a source (an ultrasonic transducer) that is part of a robot that can move on the plate. The waves traveling in the plate are recorded at a receiver (another ultrasonic...Ultrasonic transducer - Mathematics; Kirchoff migration - Research2014-12
88 Borrowman, WilliamGas exchange of co-occurring plant species of the Great Basin Desert in an irrigated common gardenThe majority of plants in the Great Basin ecosystem have adapted to cope with drought during summer. While general characteristics of these plants have been studied in non-managed environments it is important to investigate the physiology of these plants when additional water is supplied. In this ...Urban heat island -- Prevention; Desert plants -- Ecology -- Great Basin -- Research; Plant ecophysiology -- Research; Irrigation -- Environmental aspects; Red Butte Garden (Salt Lake City, Utah)2014-04
