The effect of age on force-time curve parameters of isometric grip strength trials

The Force-Time Curve (F-T Curve) Test includes the slopes of force-generation phase and force-decay phase of force-time curve generated when performing a 10-second isometric grip contraction....   Details

The molecular basis of thymoquinone protection against beta-amyloid peptide toxicity

Beta-amyloid (Abeta) is central to Alzheimer's disease (AD) pathogenesis. Thymoquinone (TQ) has been shown to reduce Abeta toxicity in cell culture. However, the underlying molecular mechanisms...   Details

The relative roles of competition and facilitation in structuring plant communities

We are looking for a full-time field assistant, from May to late August, 2011. The research project examines how both competition and facilitation operate in plant communities, and at what point each...   Details

Theory Development for the Optimized Hierarchical Microstructures of Composites

The objective of the proposed research is on the robust evaluation, prediction, and identification of the performance of metallic composites. Specifically, we focus on the structural and mechanical...   Details

Time-resolved spectroscopic studies of nitrite reduction by the enzyme ccNiR

We are interested in the enzymes that some bacteria use to catalyze ammonia-nitrite interconversion, an ecologically important process. In the bacterium S. oneidensis, Nitrite reduction to ammonia...   Details
