Campylobacter jejuni is a common cause of serious diarrhoeal disease in humans, in contrast to the avian population, where exposure results in prolonged colonization at high density without disease. Colonized poultry present a significant source of infection to humans worldwide. The aim of this work was to compare the interaction of Campylobacter with(More)
BACKGROUND South Asian and Black ethnic minorities in the UK have higher rates of acceptance onto renal replacement therapy (RRT) than Caucasians. Registry studies in the USA and Canada show better survival; there are few data in the UK. METHODS Renal Association UK Renal Registry data were used to compare the characteristics and survival of patients(More)
Although Ethernet technology is still the most popular LAN technology in use today at the desktop, the throughput offered by the 10 and 100 Mbps Ethernet is inadequate for high bandwidth networking applications such as real-time visualisation, high-resolution graphics, multimedia, and web applications. Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) technology provides 1000(More)

This summer I had the pleasure of working with Dr. Wes Maciejewski and Dr. Christoph Hauert on evolutionary game theory. Evolutionary game theory provides the tools to predict how a population will evolve over time based on the interactions of individuals, and the manner in which the population updates. For this project, we were interested in examining how(More)
Cryptosporidiosis, a protozoal disease which causes significant morbidity in humans, is one of the chief causes of diarrhoea in neonatal ruminants. although the parasite poses a significant threat to public health and animal health in Ireland, its epidemiology on the island is only poorly understood. Environmental studies have shown the waterborne parasite(More)
