It is generally important to elucidate airway epithelial cell lineages and to identify multipotent progenitors as targets for gene therapy. Stem (S) cells are typically present in specialized… (More)

We study two quantization schemes for compact symplectic manifolds with almost complex structures. The first of these is the Spinc quantization. We prove the analog of Kodaira vanishing for the Spinc… (More)

For an asymptotically hyperbolic metric on the interior of a compact manifold with boundary, we prove that the resolvent and scattering operators are continuous functions of the metric in the… (More)

For a conformally compact manifold that is hyperbolic near infinity and of dimension n + 1, we complete the proof of the optimal O(r) upper bound on the resonance counting function, correcting a… (More)

We construct a determinant of the Laplacian for infinite-area surfaces which are hyperbolic near infinity and without cusps. In the case of a convex co-compact hyperbolic metric, the determinant can… (More)

For hyperbolic Riemann surfaces of finite geometry, we study Selberg’s zeta function and its relation to the relative scattering phase and the resonances of the Laplacian. As an application we show… (More)

Submucosal glands (SMGs) are the major site of expression of the cystic fibrosis (CF) transmembrane conductance regulator gene (CFTR) in the human lung. As such, SMGs may be a critical component of… (More)
