Development of Genetic Techniques to Study Prophyromonas gingivalis

This project involves the generation of genetic tools for the study of the periodontal pathogen Porphyromonas gingivalis. This bacterium is a major healt problem, and its infection leads to tooth...   Details

Development of New Protease Assays to Detect Novel Pepsin Inhibitors

The objective of this research is the identification of novel therapeutics for laryngopharyngeal reflux disease (LPRD). The estimated economic burden of LPRD is over $52 billion/year, with 52% of the...   Details

Development of Research and Conference Portal for GLIDE: Global Interaction in Design Education

GLIDE currently highlights the research and collaborations of designers across the globe. It provides a collaborative space through which designers, educators, and researchers can share ideas and...   Details

Development of Servo-pneumatic Load-Control Test Devices for Testing of Composites Structures

Currently, a practical system structural excitation source (interrogation energy delivery method) that creates multitudes of elastic waves in the component being inspected in composites is missing...   Details

Development of a Combined Sewage Overflow Tracking Sensor Network

We are developing a drifting vehicle that will track pollution plumes in Lake Michigan. Specifically, we want to understand the movement and fate of a combined sewerage overflow (CSO), an episodic...   Details

Development of a Kinetic Model for the Early Stages of the Maillard Reaction

The goal of this project is to better understand the reactions of amino acids with carbohydrates (known as the Maillard reaction). This reaction is important in a variety of contexts, including human...   Details

Development of a Novel Asymmetric Synthesis for BRL 37959.

Biologically active aryl compounds are found in the structure of many life saving drugs, but are rarely found in nature. Currently most synthetic procedures for these compounds are hugely expensive...   Details

Development of a Novel Flow Injection-Solvent Extraction Method for the Analysis of Complex Mixtures.

In this project, the student will develop a state-of-the-art analytical system for the separation and reconcentration of products of the Maillard Reaction. This reaction is between an amino acid and...   Details

Development of a Sequential Injection Interface for Two-Dimensional Liquid Chromatography

The project will focus on designing, building, and optimizing an instrument for separating complex mixtures into individual chemical compounds that are present. This research will provide a strong...   Details

Development of a new instrument for measuring tissue mechanics

We propose to develop a technique that measures the dynamics and mechanics of muscle fibers when exposed to force. Our objectives are to construct an instrument that is able to measure muscle fibers...   Details
