    Previous research suggests that individuals with chemical dependence history experience more intense nicotine addiction, and during smoking cessation may be more likely to demonstrate increased negative affect and ...
  • Mantila Roosa, S.M.; Liu, Y.; Turner, C.H. (Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research, 2010-04-09)
    Mechanical loading is a potent anabolic stimulus that substantially strengthens bones, and the time course of bone formation after initiating mechanical loading is well characterized. However, the time sequence for gene ...
  • Goodwin, Charles B.; Yang, Zhenyun; Yin, Fuqin; Chan, Rebecca J. (Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research, 2011-04-08)
    Juvenile Myelomonocytic Leukemia (JMML) is a lethal myeloproliferative disorder (MPD) of children, characterized by hyperproliferation of myelomonocytic cells and hypersensitivity to Granulocyte-Monocyte Colony-Stimulating ...
  • Petranek, Stefan (Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research, 2014-04-11)
    As new milestones in medicine, agriculture, and synthetic biology are reached through the study and manipulation of genes, scientific research is being translated into technology that is poised to have dramatic affects on ...

    Abstract: The Genetic Portrait Project, an ongoing photo documentary which uses art to explore society’s current perceptions of genetic research and the implications for the future, created an interactive art initiative ...
  • Corry, Kylie A.; Li, Jiliang (Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research, 2015-04-17)
    Many cells are involved in the orchestra that is bone homeostasis--particularly osteoclasts and osteoblasts who mediate remodeling of bones. This creates a balance that must be kept in check, otherwise pathologies arise. ...
