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 ...
Functional molecular imaging in the brain
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-02-24)
Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) with contrast agents sensitive to neural activity could have great impact in neuroscience by combining noninvasive whole-brain coverage with molecular-level specificity for ...
The Ethics of Stem Cell Engineering
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-03-10)
The use of human embryonic stem cells in research has sparked many discussions concerning ethical considerations since the outset of the technology. Join us as James Shepherd, founder and chairman of the Shepherd Center, ...
Emergence of Genetic Complexity in Clonal Populations Evolving in the Lab: Implications for Cancer and Chronic Infectious Disease
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2018-10-09)
A bacterial population that initially consists of a single clone can evolve into a population teeming with many, whether or not the surrounding environment is structured, and whether or not resource levels are constant or ...
