Gecko adhesion is expected to be temperature insensitive over the range of temperatures typically experienced by geckos. Previous work is limited and equivocal on whether this expectation holds. We tested the temperature dependence of adhesion in Tokay and Day geckos and found that clinging ability at 12 degrees C was nearly double the clinging ability at(More)
In the spring of 2013, a newly pathogenic H7N9 influenza virus emerged in people in China, likely associated with wild and domestic birds (Kageyama et al. 2013). Marking the exact scenario that public health experts had feared— people were being infected, getting sick, and dying without the source of the virus being rapidly and definitively identified.

iv ACKNOWLEDGEMENT This accomplishment would not have been possible without the dedication and support of many people. First, I would like to thank my advisor, Donald G. Stein, not only for his guidance and assistance with this project, but for providing the chance for me to complete my graduate career in a research area that makes a difference to the(More)
Inhibition of acid secretion of the frog fundus is generally accompanied by an increase in transmucosal resistance, Rt, and in potential difference, PD (nutrient normally positive). These results are predicted for the intact tissue by an electrogenic proton pump. It has been suggested that the increase in PD with inhibition can also be explained by a(More)
