Olfactory ensheathing cells show promise in preclinical animal models as a cell transplantation therapy for repair of the injured spinal cord. This is a report of a clinical trial of autologous transplantation of olfactory ensheathing cells into the spinal cord in six patients with complete, thoracic paraplegia. We previously reported on the methods of(More)
Many centres make regular measures of gamma camera performance as part of routine quality assurance programmes. Such measures may detect gradual deterioration in the camera but provide no basis on which to decide when corrective action should be taken. It is necessary to know when changes in camera performance are significant in terms of perceived image(More)
(2008) Secure, performance-oriented data management for nanoCMOS electronics. ABSTRACT The EPSRC pilot project Meeting the Design Challenges of nanoCMOS Electronics (nanoCMOS) is focused upon delivering a production level e-Infrastructure to meet the challenges facing the semiconductor industry in dealing with the next generation of 'atomic-scale'(More)
Supporting distributed, research collaborations is a fundamental demand of e-Research infrastructures (e-Infrastructures). To be successful, e-Infrastructures must address the needs of all parties involved including end user researchers and associated stakeholders, e.g. organizations that make resources available. These needs often translate into ensuring(More)
The UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) funded project ¿Meeting the Design Challenges of nanoCMOS Electronics¿ (nanoCMOS) is developing a research infrastructure for collaborative electronics research across multiple institutions in the UK with especially strong industrial and commercial involvement. Unlike other domains, the(More)
SUMMARY The $20m Australian Urban Research Infrastructure Network (AURIN) project (www.aurin.org.au) began in July 2010. AURIN has been tasked with developing a secure, Web-based virtual environment (e-Infrastructure) offering seamless, secure access to diverse, distributed and extremely heterogeneous data sets from numerous agencies with an extensive(More)
Microarray experiments are one of the key ways in which gene activity can be identified and measured thereby shedding light and understanding for example on biological processes. The BBSRC funded Grid enabled Microarray Expression Profile Search (GEMEPS) project has developed an infrastructure which allows post-genomic life science researchers to ask and(More)
Ensuring that only authorized users have access to certain <i>sensitive</i> datasets is of paramount importance and this is especially so in the health sector. While the importance of the ability to access and utilize such data to better manage public health has been increasingly recognized, the process of defining and enforcing access management remains(More)
