Synthesis and biochemical testing of next generation peptide inhibitors of thrombosis
The first interaction at a damaged blood vessel is between the multimeric glycoprotein von Willebrand Factor (vWF) and collagen that is now exposed. Binding of vWF enhances the rate of platelet binding at the site of injury ...
Microparticles in Three Dimensional Thrombus Formation
Thrombosis is the formation of a blood clot under pathological conditions. The growth of thrombi may be accelerated by the presence of circulating cell-derived vesicles, termed microparticles (MPs). Previous studies have ...

The purpose of the present study was to measure the public’s awareness of racial/ethnic health disparities and to examine the effect of priming participants’ belief systems on racial/ethnic health disparities awareness.
Resveratrol Derivatives to Pass the Blood Brain Barrier
The Krebs cycle contains several carboxylic acid intermediates that have been found in observable levels in the brain. In this study, resveratrol is conjugated to different Krebs cycle intermediates to investigate whether ...
Maximum Parsimony Advances for Native Phylogenetic Stemmatics
Our ultimate aim is to design an algorithm that generates the most parsimonious tree where extant texts may be ancestors of other texts. The algorithm accepts a set of extant manuscripts or a multiple alignment of such ...
International trade restrictions and endangered species populations an economic analysis
We examine the effects of endangered species trade restrictions enacted by the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) on species’ population trends over time. Utilizing ...
Designing tools to investigate the roles of hasp-2 and icp-1 in the regulation mode of meiosis
We are investigating the roles of hasp-2 and icp-1 genes in chromosomal segregation of meiosis in Caenorhabditis elegans. HASP-2 and ICP-1 are part of the chromosomal passenger complex (CPC), which is responsible for loss ...
Immigrant preschoolers in New Jersey and Pennsylvania: investigating cultural beliefs and practices in early childhood education classrooms
The Immigrant Preschoolers in New Jersey and Pennsylvania Project is a video ethnographic study that investigates cultural beliefs and practices in early childhood classrooms that are often unidentified or ignored. Preschools ...
