Membrane Active Peptides (MAPs) are an important class of short protein sequences that hold the potential to be used for a number of varied purposes such as antibacterial, antiviral, and drug delivery based therapies. ...
IN VIVO DIFFUSION WEIGHTED MAGNETIC RESONANCE SPECTROSCOPY IN MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS
(Johns Hopkins University, 2015-03-26)
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a complex CNS disease in which inflammation, demyelination and neuroaxonal degeneration are concurrent processes. MS therapies developed to date are directed at the immune-mediated, inflammatory ...
Hyperstructures and Idempotent Semistructures
(Johns Hopkins University, 2015-03-15)
Much of this thesis concerns hypergroups, multirings, and hyperfields. These are analogous to abelian groups, rings, and fields, but have a multivalued addition operation. M. Krasner introduced the notion of a valued ...
