CLARITY IHC image of half a coronal mouse midbrain slice for characterizing the distribution of three distinct isoforms of TCF7L2

Sun_Hao.jpg
This image shows the right half of a 200 um thick mouse brain slice, which is rendered transparent with CLARITY technique for IHC and then imaged on the 5x objective of a Zeiss LSM 710. This novel technique removed the lipid content yet retained the…

Counter Rotating Vortices

Gibson_Allison.jpg
A common method to enhance convective heat transfer is to utilize vortex-generating compact slender structures. When a vortex generator is placed in the streamwise direction of a flowing fluid, a pressure drop develops between the mean flow of the…

The Octopus: Eight Arms or Eight Minds?

Tran_Andrew_&_Duman_Alex.jpg
Octopuses expertly coordinate eight arms that contain as much as two-thirds of their entire nervous system. In fact, the arms are very sensitive and are capable of distinguishing between different textures in their environment. Our research aims to…

Integration of III-V Lasers Onto Si

Pakeltis_ Grace.jpg
The image submitted is a modified SEM image of a III-V laser that is integrated onto a Si wafer. By integrating lasers onto Si, we are able to increasing the speed of integrated circuits. Full integration is difficult because lasers cannot be grown…

2-Dimensional Multiple Phase Transitions in Long Range First Passage Percolation

Liu_Yue.png
This image was generated to show the 2 dimension case of Multiple Phase Transitions in Long Range First Passage Percolation, which is a random process on a complete graph. The growth of in the percolation can be seen as an infection, whose behavior…

Crush Testing a Microvascular Carbon Fiber Composite

Calvert_Quinn.jpg
The image shows a self-supporting corrugated sample of a Microvascular Carbon Fiber Composite undergoing compressive testing on an Inston. Using the load cell data and crush videos, we measure the Specific Energy Absorption (SEA) of the sample to…

From the New World

Yu_Hoejong.tif
When Antonin Dvok came to America and composed "Symphony No. 9, From the New World", he said that he would not have completed it if he had not seen America and not heard of American music. The desolate prairie that is the most boring part of the…

descend sky

I explore autobiography and dance, the place where embodied practice jibes with personal archive, unfolding selfhood. With the cinematic concepts of Gilles Deleuze (difference, reflection/refraction and the crystal-image) my research deconstructs and…

Cholesterol: Tiny Molecule, Big Impact

Yeager_Ashley.tif
Cholesterol is found in every cell of the human body. It plays a role in heart disease, atherosclerosis, diabetes, cancer, and so on, touching nearly every field of medicine. I use cutting-edge chemical imaging technology to map the intricate…

Fueling the Mind
