Transdermal delivery of metformin using microneedle and iontophoresis for combating obesity
The prevalence of obesity and overweight is dramatically increasing, making them a global concern. It increases the risk of many diseases particularly diabetes, hypertension, osteoarthritis, and heart disease. Combating ...
Economic analysis and resource optimization for scribes working with hospitalists, and effectively balancing hospitalist workloads
Many hospitals use hospitalists instead of primary care physicians to provide medical care to hospitalized patients. Hospitals have found that hospitalists are more efficient and cost effective than primary care physicians. ...
Genomic and molecular identification and characterization of Enterobacteriaceae and Campylobacter spp.
Campylobacter spp. is the most prevalent bacterial pathogen worldwide. Despite causing mainly self-limited gastroenteritis, campylobacteriosis could also trigger neurological disorders and causes the highest number of ...
Amplifying Indigenous voices through a community of stories approach
Too often who gets to tell stories and how stories are told depends on power—most often telling and reinforcing dominant narratives (the stories of those who hold power). During the NoDAPL movement, for example, Indigenous ...
Development of gel-based phenotypic assays to study muscle function and genetics in Caenorhabditis elegans
Muscle is the contractile tissue of an organism required for motion and overall health. Human aging is associated with loss of muscle mass and strength (sarcopenia) that limits physical activity and negatively impacts the ...
The investigation of collective inquiry and transformative inquiry to the sustainability of professional learning communities in reading and writing instruction
Research showed that professional learning communities (PLC) have ubiquitously been implemented in American schools; hence, teachers shifted from working in isolation into group-working with a purpose of sharing their ...
Frozen warfare: Managing life in American Civil War prisons
Master's thesis in history in the field of American Civil War prisons and prisoners of war
The effects of air/water interface properties on the formation of biofilm by P. aeruginosa
Microbial biofilms are viscoelastic materials formed by bacteria, which occur on solid surfaces, at liquid interfaces, or in free solution. Although solid surface biofilms have been widely studied, pellicles, biofilms at ...
Investigating neurodegenerative effects of environmental contaminants in vitro
Neurodegenerative diseases refer to a group of conditions leading to the progressive loss of the structure and function of the central and peripheral nervous system. These conditions have become more evident with successful ...
Physiological and molecular causes of genetic novelties: A case study on transgressive salinity tolerance across a recombinant inbred population of rice
Genetic novelties are unique individuals in a population that acquired the ability to occupy novel niches previously unattainable. Their creation is an important step in the expansion of the species or the rise of new ...
