Therapeutic Angiogenesis and Bone Regeneration with Natural and Synthetic Small Molecules
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-06-11)
Endothelial cells play significant roles in conditioning the environment in local tissues after injury by the production and secretion of angiocrine factors. At least two distinct subsets of leukocytes, CD45+ CD11b+ ...
Prediction and Design in Chemical Evolution
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-09-10)
Discrete atoms and molecules interact to form macromolecules and even larger mesoscale assemblies, ultimately yielding macroscopic structures and properties. A quantitative relationship between the nanoscale discrete ...
Exploring Lymphatic Function: An Engineered Toolbox to Shed Light on Nature’s Invisible Vessels
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-01-08)
Proper lymphatic function is essential to a variety of important physiologic processes including immune cell trafficking, lipid absorption, and the regulation of fluid balance. However, the experimental difficulties ...
Regulation of Ryanodine Receptor Calcium Release Channels by Endogenous Effectors
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-07-09)
Fluctuations in the intracellular calcium (Ca2+) concentration are used to signal numerous cellular events. Impaired cellular Ca2+ regulation can lead to pathology and cell death, thus tight control of intracellular Ca2+ ...
Ocular Biomechanics: Lots of Good Problems Looking for Solutions
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-04-09)
Eyes matter – vision loss is consistently rated as one of the most feared disabilities and blindness imposes huge social and economic costs. Good human vision requires, among other processes, biomechanical homeostasis ...
Osteoimmunology: Exploring the Role of the Immune System in Regulating Bone in Health and Disease
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-12-10)
Our laboratory has pioneered the field of osteoimmunology. The laboratory is specialized in conducting in vivo studies in mice treated with PTH or subjected to ovariectomy. We use genetic models, retroviral transduction, ...
