Determining the bacterial composition of the canine oral microbiome is of interest for two primary reasons. First, while the human oral microbiome has been well studied using molecular techniques, the oral microbiomes of other mammals have not been studied in equal depth using culture independent methods. This study allows a comparison of the number of(More)
Liver transplant biopsies are routinely archived following formalin fixation and paraffin embedding and may provide an additional source of diagnostic information following transcriptomic biomarker analysis. This study was designed to compare gene transcription between resting and stressed biliary cells in culture, these cells after fixation and embedding(More)
BACKGROUND Our objective was to conduct a pilot study to determine if transcervical administration of polidocanol foam (PF) with or without doxycycline or benzalkonium chloride (BZK) would prevent pregnancy in baboons. METHODS In study phase 1, adult cycling baboons underwent a hysterosalpingogram to evaluate tubal patency prior to transcervical infusion(More)
Nanocomposites are becoming a new paradigm in thermoelectric study: by incorporating nanophase(s) into a bulk matrix, a nanocomposite often exhibits unusual thermoelectric properties beyond its constituent phases. To date most nanophases are binary, while reports on ternary nanoinclusions are scarce. In this work, we conducted an exploratory study of(More)
We would like to thank Professor Margaret Dewar and Libby Levy for their unwavering support and insight during the completion of STABILIZING MORNINGSIDE. We would also like to thank our advisory committee for their valuable input: We would also like to extend our thanks to the following people and organizations who assisted us by providing their time,(More)
In the analysis looking for the signature X → HH → b ¯ bb ¯ b, where X is the Randall-Sundrum Graviton (RSG), this paper reveals the preliminary results and preparation work done to optimize the p T cut that we can make on the leading jet to optimize the limits that we can set on the cross section for the RSG particle. The limit setting is done using a(More)

The characters in Toni Morrison's The Bluest Eye live in the racially segregated American city of the 1940s. In their book Racial Formation in the United States, Michael Omi and Howard Winant explore the dynamics of racism in the same country where Morrison's characters live. They develop the idea that racism is an unavoidable element of social structure(More)
