    • Dynamics of magnetic monopoles in artificial spin ice 

      Shen, Yichen (Office of the Provost, Johns Hopkins University, 2011-05)
      While finding the elementary magnetic monopole seems not an easy task, recently, scientists have come out an alternative approach by studying emergent particles in spin systems. Spin ice is a magnet with frustrated ...
    • Exploring Transcriptional Silencing of Transposons in Zebrafish 

      Halpern, Marnie E.; Goll, Mary G.; Broache, Molly B. (2010)
      DNA methylation plays a critical role as an epigenetic modifier in plants and mammals, however it is absent from many invertebrate genomes. Although DNA methylation is known to be present in zebrafish, there is limited ...
    • The Identification of Epigenetic Biomarkers for Myeloid Malignancies 

      McDevitt, Michael A.; Moliterno, Alison R.; Herman, James G.; Carraway, Hetty E.; Prebet, Thomas; Dilley, Robert L. (Office of the Provost, Johns Hopkins University, 2011)
      Myeloid malignancies comprise a heterogeneous group of blood cancers that arise from abnormal stem or progenitor cells of the bone marrow and often portend a poor prognosis. The major disorders can be divided into four ...
    • Measles Virus Infection of Primary Respiratory Epithelial Cells Derived from Rhesus Macaques 

      Tsay, Annie; Lin, Wen-Hsuan; Lalime, Erin; Pekosz, Andrew; Griffin, Diane (Office of the Provost, Johns Hopkins University, 2011)
      Measles remains a leading vaccine-preventable cause of child mortality globally. Although a live-attenuated vaccine against measles virus (MV) is available, measles has been difficult to control. MV is a respiratory infection ...
    • Neuromechanical Control of Paddle Juggling 

      De, Avik (2010-05-14)
      The objective of this research is to discover the rules by which the human nervous system controls the cyclic task of paddle juggling. The existence of separate feedforward and feedback control signals is hypothesized, and ...
    • Neuronal Differentiation of Human Embryonic Stem Cell-Derived Neural Crest Stem Cells by Pulsed Electrical Field 

      Wach, Zachary; Zhang, Shuming; Ren, Yongiuan; Liu, Xingyu; Lee, Gabsang; Studer, Lorenz; Mao, Hai-Quan (Office of the Provost, Johns Hopkins University, 2011)
      This work surveyed the potential of using exogenous pulsed electrical field stimuli to guide the differentiation of human embryonic stem cell (hESC) derived-neural crest stem cells (NCSCs) towards their neuronal lineage. ...
    • Technological Innovation and the Status of Modern Civil Legal Aid in the U.K. 

      Park, Kevin (2010-04-20)
      The status of technology used in the English legal aid system has previously been studied only in a limited manner. The Legal Services Research Centre (LSRC) has conducted civil justice surveys in 2001, 2004, 2006, and ...
    • Understanding Cancer Cell Motility and Interactions with the Extracellular Matrix 

      Wirtz, Denis; Fraley, Stephanie; Krishnamurthy, Ranjini (2009-11)
      The enzyme Transglutaminase is used as a novel method of increasing the stiffness of collagen gel without affecting other characteristics. This discovery has allowed for a more accurate analysis of cancer cell motility in ...
