  1. Engineering the <em>in vitro</em> ovarian follicle microenvironment: Developmental regulation by the culture matrix and translational approaches for human fertility preservation

    Wp988j973?file=thumbnail
    Description: Improving cancer treatments are saving the lives of many young women, however these treatments often lead to premature infertility. The in vitro development of ovarian follicles would provide reproductive options to these women by supporting immature follicle growth following ovarian tissue cryobanking. In addition, the system provides a platform to...

  2. Large Scale Complex Protein Synthesis Networks: Modeling and Analysis of Translation Elongation Behavior

    5425k982m?file=thumbnail
    Description: The genetic information in DNA is transcribed to mRNA and then translated to proteins, which form the building blocks of life. Translation, or protein synthesis, is hence a central cellular process. Decades of experimentation have elucidated a vast wealth of molecular information about discrete translation steps, but the sheer complexity...

  3. Tissue Engineering Scaffolds for Protein and DNA Delivery: A Platform for Islet Transplantation

    05741r79h?file=thumbnail
    Description: Tissue engineering offers a promising approach for the replacement of diseased or injured tissues, and is based upon the premise that cells can be induced to form new tissues when presented with the appropriate set of environmental cues. Polymer scaffolds play a central role in most tissue engineering strategies by...

  4. Mechanistic Modeling of Polymer Pyrolysis: Investigation of Intrinsic Kinetics, Reaction Pathways, and Structural Heterogeneities

    6q182k29p?file=thumbnail
    Description: Resource recovery is a promising category of polymer recycling where polymeric waste is converted via thermal or chemical means to monomer and chemical feedstocks. Specifically, pyrolysis is an attractive method because of its simplicity and ability to handle a heterogeneous feedstock. Polymer pyrolysis is characterized by a complex free radical...

  5. Design and Production of Protein-Based Polymers for Application as Drag-Tags in Free-Solution DNA Sequencing

    6m311p50d?file=thumbnail
    Description: End-Labeled Free-Solution Electrophoresis, or ELFSE, is an alternative strategy for DNA sequencing that proposes to eliminate the need for a viscous sieving matrix for size-based DNA separation. In this bioconjugate method, a perturbing entity or "drag-tag" is attached to differently sized DNA fragments produced by the Sanger reaction. This drag-tag...

  6. Strategies for Immobilization of Cell Adhesion Molecule and Cytokine Receptor Ligands: Inspiration from the Cell Membrane and Marine Mussels

    Sx61dm430?file=thumbnail
    Description: Cells are regulated by a combination of soluble stimuli and adhesive interactions with other cells and the extracellular matrix (ECM). We are developing systems to present ECM and cytokine receptor ligands in a defined manner for applications in hematopoietic stem and progenitor cell (HSPC) culture. We hypothesize that the controlled,...

  7. Highly Modular Protein Polymers for Multivalent Display, Liquid Crystalline Bacillary Polymers and Hydrogels for in Situ Tissue Engineering

    9p2909417?file=thumbnail
    Description: The de novo design of bio-inspired materials with precisely controlled properties is challenging, but has potential applications in nano-biotechnology. Applications range from nanometer scaled assemblies to three-dimensional scaffolds for tissue engineering. Genetic engineering of protein-based polymers offers distinct advantages over traditionally synthesized polymers, de novo proteins can be produced with...

    Description: Over the past decade and a half, there has been considerable interest in the effect confinement and interfaces have on the properties of glass forming materials. With the emergence of nanotechnology, some glass formers, in particular polymeric glass formers, will be used at increasingly smaller length scales. An understanding of...

  10. Engineering Spatial Patterns of Gene Expression: Fundamental Studies of Guided Cellular Processes and Applications to Tissue Regeneration

    T435gd107?file=thumbnail
    Description: Natural tissues can have complex architectures characterized by the organization of multiple cells into structures, such as branching networks of the vascular or nervous systems. This cellular organization arises, in part, from spatial patterns in the expression of soluble factors, which create concentration gradients that direct cellular processes during morphogenesis....
