    • Still a Threat: Polychlorinated Biphenyl (PCB) Metabolism in Cells & Formation of Cancer-Causing DNA Adducts 

      Chang, Wei-Ann; Taveras, Alwany Angeles; Saadatmand, Bahareh; Gaul, Larissa (2021-05)
      Despite PCBs having been banned from manufacturing processes for decades, polychlorinated biphenyls or PCBs can still enter the environment through various means, such as improper waste disposal methods, and wreak havoc. ...
    • Frostbyte: Multi-Phase Lower Digital Freezing 

      Cooke, Benjamin; Jaicks, John; Kitzinger, Cameron; Sheppard, TJ (2021-05)
      Though frostbite is an affliction that has been commonly known for hundreds of years, its direct effect and dynamics have rarely been studied. With modern technology and an understanding of the human body, tissue freezing ...
    • An Injectable Oxygen and VEGF Releasing Hydrogel for Cardiac Tissue Regeneration 

      Li, Linda; Lubinus, Ariadna; Murundi, Shamanth; Prakash, Gayatri (2021-05)
      The purpose of this study was to determine the design requirements of an injectable fibrin hydrogel as a viable tool in delivering sufficient oxygen (O2) and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) to hypoxic tissue to ...
    • Murdering the Murder Hornet: Heat and CO2 Exchange in a Bee-ball 

      Shack, Jasmine; Yu, Evelyn (Zichen); Yu, Ruoqian Lin; Fang, Ye (2021-05)
      Bee-balling is a defensive technique employed by Japanese honeybees, Apis cerana japonica, against the predatory Asian giant hornet, Vespa mandarinia. Upon recognition of the hornet intruder within the hive, hundreds of ...
    • A Model of Transdermal Drug Delivery through Electroporation 

      Adair, James; Chou, Emily; Metzloff, Matt; Tse, Truman (2021-05)
      Electroporation is a technique that applies high voltage pulses over short time periods, resulting in strong electric fields, to create micropores in cell membranes. When applied to the skin, electroporation causes Joule ...
