How Effective is Chlorhexidine Gluconate on Preventing Surgical Site Infections?
In the prevention of SSIs how does the use of chlorhexidine gluconate (CHG) compared with povidone-iodine or other solutions, impact the development of SSIs within 30 days postoperatively.
Children's Sleep Patterns During the School Year and Summer Break
The objective of this study was to explore potential causes of children’s accelerated weight gain during the summer months. This study examined differences in children’s parent-reported sleep patterns during the school ...
Defining Novel GRE Binding Motifs in Genes Related to the Wnt Signaling Pathway
The glucocorticoid receptor (GR) is a nuclear hormone receptor known to directly and indirectly modulate a wide array of downstream signaling pathways in response to ligand binding. Given its near ubiquitous presence and ...
Applications of Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPM): From Particle to Biomedical Physics
This project was completed with contributions from Xinran Li from Princeton University.
How Does Grasshopper Feedings Vary Due to Nutrient Additions?
We looked to explore the relationship between macro- and micronutrient addition on grasshopper feeding rates and their ability to detect the additions of these macro- and micronutrients in Schizachyrium scoparium. In ...
Study of Charge Transfer Characteristics in Hybrid Polymer Solar Cells Using Intensity Modulated Spectroscopy
Polymer solar cells are widely investigated for their low-cost fabrication process and promising power conversion efficiency (PCE). The highest PCE reported in these cells is 12.6%, which is barely enough to make it a ...
Stem cell heterogeneity as a driver of cystic fibrosis
Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disorder that is characterized by chronic inflammation and build-up of mucus in the lungs. While treatments for the disease do exist, most target the symptoms of the illness and do not ...
The Effect of Language Status on Sleep Spindle Characteristics
Studies have demonstrated that speaking and learning multiple languages enhances executive control, which is essential to switch between languages. This enhanced process is called “Bilingual Cognitive Advantage”. The present ...
Magnetic Slippery Extreme Icephobic Surfaces
Here we report new magnetic slippery surfaces outperforming state-of-the-art icephobic surfaces with a ice formation temperature of 34 C, 2–3 orders of magnitude higher delay time in ice formation, extremely low ice adhesion ...
