    Research in transdermal drug delivery systems has gained much attention in the past thirty years. One of the biggest challenges in developing an effective system however, is getting past the tightly-structured outermost ...
  • Modeling Brain Cooling Helmets for Ischemia Patients 

    Wiechecki, Julie; Ranganath, Neel; McDonough, Brendan; Wind, Jessica (2010-05-21)
    In this project, we modeled the effectiveness of a cooling cap designed to lower brain temperatures by approximately 3°C in order to cause temporary hypothermia in the brain and thereby prevent further injury caused by ...
  • Optimizing Combined Laser Treatment for the Removal of Port Wine Stains and Cryogen Spray Cooling to Reduce Thermal Heating at the Skin Surface
