The next generation of wide-area sky surveys offer the power to place extremely precise constraints on cosmological parameters and to test the source of cosmic acceleration. These observational programs will employ multiple techniques based on a variety of statistical signatures of galaxies and large-scale structure. These techniques have sources of(More)
BACKGROUND Because perioperative complications of unrecognized obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) can be severe, many bariatric surgery programs routinely screen all patients. However, many obese non-bariatric surgery patients do not get screened. We wanted to evaluate the need for routine preoperative OSA screening. METHODS Morbidly obese patients with a body(More)
Upcoming wide-area sky surveys offer the power to test the source of cosmic acceleration by placing extremely precise constraints on existing cosmological model parameters. These observational surveys will employ multiple tests based on statistical signatures of galaxies and larger-scale structures such as clusters of galaxies. Simulations of large-scale(More)
PURPOSE We report a rare case of primary uveal lymphoma and characterize it using histopathology and multimodal imaging. PATIENT AND METHODS A 41-year-old male presented with a 2-year history of increasingly blurry vision in his right eye and no systemic symptoms. Examination revealed a retinal detachment and mass lesion in the right eye. Radiologic and(More)
To Bozenna Pasik-Duncan, whose example, encouragement, and friendship inspires me to continue along this academic path. ii ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS As with any work of this nature, this could not have been done alone. I'd like to thank all of the members of the Zochowski lab, especially Rhonda Dzakpasu for teaching me the cell culture protocol, Jane Wang and Eva(More)
IV. Community Input: Eugene Deshanvar. Eugene would like to address the board on issues of intellectual property, the minutes from the Academic Affairs Committee meeting on February 1 2012, and an update on his accountability. Eugene invites everyone to check out his story on his website. Regarding the minutes, Eugene says that he feels very sensitive to(More)
