    • Experimental Plasmatron Heat Flux Measuring Techniques Study 

      Vaden, Sarah (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-11-09)
      Ground testing for hypersonic re-entry vehicles is an invaluable methodology to vehicle conception. The Von Karman Institute plasmatron is a facility that can duplicate the localized aerothermodynamic properties and ...
    • Hemodynamic Assessment of Bicuspid Aortic Valves as a Clinical Diagnostic Tool 

      Gupta, Shabnam (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-11-18)
      Bicuspid Aortic Valves (BAV) is the most common congenital cardiac defect occurring in approximately 1-2% of the newborn population in the USA. This defect results from the presence of two leaflets, typically unequal-sized, ...
    • IDEA: Improvisation for Design of Engineering Alternatives 

      Ludovice, Peter J.; Lefton, Lew (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-02-24)
      Improvisation for Design of Engineering Alternatives (IDEA) is a group of Georgia Tech researchers who apply the techniques of improvisational humor to catalyze technical innovation. While this approach has been used in ...
    • Improvisation and Technical Innovation 

      Lefton, Lew (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-11-09)
    • Inducing a thermogenic response to cold shock in Escherichia coli 

      Graves,Christina; Holmes, Scott (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-11-18)
      Microorganisms respond to environmental stress through several means for survival. This research project aims to engineer Escherichia coli cells to generate heat in response to a cold-shock. Altering a cell’s reaction to ...
    • Local Food: Sustainability is Participation 

      Katz, Sandor Ellix (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2008-03-03)
      Eating local is more than a consumer experience. It means rebuilding a whole web of relations and demands not only interactions with farmers, but more of us becoming food producers directly involved with the sources of our ...
    • Mad Houser Pecha Kucha 

      Manfree, Alec; Anglin, Lindsay; Lesniewski, Victor (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2008-02-28)
    • The mechanism of proteoglycan membrane anchorage affects the endocytic pathway of cellular cargo 

      Hardin, Kevin (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-02-09)
      Endocytosis is the process by which the cell is able to take up materials from the extracellular space into the cytosol by enclosing it within its cell membrane. Mechanistically, this is often accomplished by a receptor ...
    • Molecular midwives: The solution to strand cyclization in the pre-RNA world 

      Chen, Michael (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-11-09)
      In recent years, the RNA-world hypothesis has become the leading theory for the origins of life. Few researchers, though, believe RNA could have spontaneously appeared out of the primordial soup. Regardless of the speculation ...
